Nice secluded area on sylamore creek with two nice swimming pools and a restroom building
Beware the swarms of ticks you may encounter if you come here in the wrong month and stand in the wrong place. This is primitive camping that comes with the attendant bugs. Consider yourself advised: pretreat with Permethrin or bring lots of bug dope. Other than that, this campsite offers access to some beautiful areas with water and hiking. It could be a destination of its own, or a traveler's stop on the way to/from the Calico Rock, the White River, Buffalo National River, Blanchard Springs Caverns, Ozark Folk Center, and other fine Arkansas places. After a day of Natural State tourist attractions, you might like some Natural State peace and quiet here.
You have river access and wonderful scenery and views all over the area. The hiking is some of the best in the state if you are in the correct season. The bugs were terrible in early September. We have nicknamed this hike the biting fly hike for years as they drew blood every time! Go in winter and you will not be disappointed.
