Very old beautiful CCC park.

Campground #1 on the banks of the Big Creek where it meets the St Francis River is a nice roomy campground with easy access to a large area of stoney beach near the boat ramp. The sites are shaded by large trees and come in many sizes.We had no trouble parking our 38 foot toy hauler. The shower house is well maintained but there are no benches in the showers so bring a chair or stool to keep your clothes off the damp floor.

Campground #2 is near access to the Big Creek and the Store/Grill. The sites are closer together here but there are many with shade and some that a big rig can back into. The water accesses are packed on the weekend by campers and the locals bringing their kids to enjoy the water, so get a parking spot early and plan to stay all day. The store stocks all of the camp basics and some gift items. The grill has good sized menu of grill food in good sized portions so no need to waste time cooking.

There are many trails for hiking, horses and bicycles.The equestrian camping area of the park has not been updated in 100 years. One vault toilet and 6 hitching posts. Major update needed.

NO phone or WiFi signal for MILES.

AG would stay here again
