Nearby is Lake Frierson State Park, offering visitors a breathtaking view of blooming dogwoods in spring and great fishing the rest of the year. Just northeast of Jonesboro proper is Arkansas State University. Because ASU is so close, much of the otherwise fairly sleepy town of Jonesboro relies on the college’s cultural and social activities.
