“Tampon and beer can trash lines the shore”

Reviewed Mar 08, 2019

Overall Rating

This is a free campground, but we came in the beginning of March and it was closed. Although on the website there was absolutely no where that it indicates it being closed for the winter or anything. We stayed at another spot on the list and it was open so I'm not sure... Luckily there is a boat ramp site right next to it and it was big enough to park there for the night. Couple people drove by as it looks like the local drink spot. Beer cans and tampon trash all along the shore. We stayed here for free so I picked up quite a bit, but all the bags we have couldn't contain the trash at this park... it's pretty run down and I think its probably permanently closed from the looks. No tellin. Just needs some TLC and it would be a great park because of it being right on the water! Beautiful. If you are tenting unless the park is open, I wouldnt come here. We have a 24ft trailer, with the truck we are about as long as a semi.it doesn't have an option for this but I have uscellular and I have 3 bars here Verizon is great here as well.

“A bit difficult to find but decent”

Overall Rating

This campground is very far from the interstate. I had chosen it because it seemed like it was on the way to Hot Springs National Park (recommended btw).

The campground itself is clean enough. There were a couple long termers in the campground at one end running generators but we stayed at the other end. The bathrooms are extremely disgusting and I'm not sure they work at all. There is also no place to leave your garbage so it is pack in and pack out. The site was nice enough with picnic table and fire pit. If you are used to Arkansas (I am not) then perhaps the water quality of the river is what you would expect but it seemed really dirty and I wouldn't go in it.

The entire campground is a big loop, I'd say about twenty sites total. Easy access to back into sites (no pull throughs), but the state road to get there is quite narrow (although completely paved and smooth). Lots of trees and shade from the heat, but also lots of flies.
