Woolly Hollow State Park, situated approximately 1 hr north of Little Rock, features fishing, boating, and swimming on 40-acre Lake Bennett in Greenbrier. There are boats for rent, campsites, trails for hiking and an 1800s homestead. The dark night skies makes the park a popular place for Central Arkansas Astronomical Society to host star parties.
