Nestled on the banks of beautiful Lake Chicot, the largest natural oxbow lake on the North American Continent, Lake Village is a natural for the outdoor enthusiast or the amateur historian. Life in Lake Village, for both the young and the "young at heart", epitomizes the hometown hospitality of Southeast Arkansas and the Delta.

Nationally known for its ability to produce record large mouth bass, Lake Chicot also offers an abundance of crappie, bream and catfish for the avid angler. With over 20 miles of waterfront and four public launching ramps, even the novice fisherman can be assured the "Catch of the Day".

Families out for a weekend of fun and relaxation have their choice of numerous motels and RV. parks around the lake, including the Lake Chicot State Park and the Chicot County RV. Park.

We sincerely welcome you to our city and hope you enjoy your stay and beautiful Lake Chicot.
