A unique way to explore the lake is to follow the Geo-Float Trail, coined as the first water-based interpretive trail included in the National Trails System. The self-guided boat tour leads visitors on a 16-mile trip to see incredible geologic features as it stretches from the Spillway Recreation Area to Brady Mountain Recreation Area.
Hikers enjoy the scenic land-based nature trail accessible from the campground. Boating, fishing and scuba diving among the remains of the flooded mountain valley are also popular here.
All 74 campsites have electric hookups. Other amenities include a dump station, fish cleaning station, hot showers, boat ramp, playground, and a swim beach.
Lake Ouachita sits in the heart of the Ouachita Mountains, just 10 miles west of Hot Springs National Park. The lake stems from the Ouachita River and boasts 692 miles of shoreline with 178 islands.
Head to Hot Springs National Park and enjoy a traditional bath or modern spa experience with the natural spring water.

The COE Brady Mountain Campground was beautiful, but plan on arriving during daylight hours or you might think you have lost the way. After recent rains the lake level was high and several low water crossings on the road into park looked intimidating at night. Daylight revealed that we were in a newly opened spot with gravel pad, fire ring, picnic table, lantern hanger and electric hook up. Water was available nearby as was a serviceable shower house. The new sites are near the boat ramp and swim beach. There are older sites on several other loops with similar service. Tent sights on top of the hill offer fantastic views of Lake Ouachita.
