This park preserves the site of historic Davidsonville.  Established in 1815, the town included the Arkansas Territory's first post office, courthouse and land office.  Bypassed by the Southwest Trail, an overland route from St. Louis to the border of Mexico, the town faded by the 1830s.  Today, park exhibits and interpretive tours provide information about this important frontier town.

Fishing is a major activity here.  The park borders the Black River (boat launch ramp) and a 12-acre fishing lake (no launch ramp) offering barrier-free fishing pier, fishing boats (trolling motors only), pedal boats and canoes.  Anglers may also choose from the nearby Spring and Eleven Point Rivers.

Facilities include 49 campsites (24 Class A; 25 Tent sites), picnic areas, two standard pavilions (screened), playgrounds, three hiking trails and a self-guided walking trail through the old town site.
