Lake Bailey
Petit Jean State Park Marina, Rentals & Fishing

Marina & Boat Rentals

Fishing boats, flat bottom boats, canoes, kayaks, pedal boats, and water bikes can be rented seasonally from the park's boathouse marina. Or, guests are allowed to bring their own boat for use on Lake Bailey. There is a 10 horsepower limit, though. Flat bottom boats can be rented with or without a motor.

Inside the boathouse marina, there is also a snack bar and game room available.


Open during the summer months, Petit Jean State Park offers two pools to escape those hot afternoons. One pool is exclusively for lodge and cabins guests only. The other is a newly renovated public pool that offers a diving board and slides for fun entertainment. The pool can also be reserved for private parties before and after normal hours. The park will even furnish lifeguards if necessary.


With 170-acre Lake Bailey on the park property, you are not too far from a relaxing afternoon of fishing for some of Arkansas' finest. The lake is stock year-round with crappie, bass, and catfish. Fishing along the shore or from a boat are popular, and the park also offers an ADA accessible fishing pier.
