Davidsonville Historic State Park, in the United States, is a 163-acre Arkansas state park in Randolph County located about 120 miles (192 km) northwest of Little Rock. Situated on the border between the Ozarks and the Arkansas Delta, the park preserves the remains of the abandoned frontier town of Davidsonville. Amenities include the new visitor center, trails, picnic areas, and a newly renovated campground with 20 campsites. The park opens for day use, but remains accessible at night during scheduled skywatching events. According to the fellow stargazer who recommended it to EarthSky, the park offers “dark skies and hosts astronomy nights.”
