I’m not sure why this was our first visit here, but it definitely won’t be our last! We love winter camping as we enjoy the parks when they are more quiet. I bet this place is very popular in the summer.
The campground has great tent spots and a variety of paved spots. Some are really small, so make sure to take rv length into consideration. The bathhouse is older, but clean.
There is a trail at the end of the campground that can access the trail with the swinging bridge, or you can go to the right and walk straight to the camp store right from your site! You can also walk to the lake from here.
The lake area is beautiful with a small spring fed waterfall, a swim beach area and even a slide into the water. No fishing in this lake, but there is another lake across the street that looks perfect for fishing!
Great little park. Swimming area was a little weak, but otherwise a great spot for a weekend. Super clean shower facilities. Lake across the street for a decent kayak day. Bring bug spray I bulk, mosquitoes were super bad.
Kids had a blast here! We did paddle boating and walked the trails!
Well kept and very quiet campground. The weekend we went there were lots of park activities and visitors. The camping area is kept away from the rest of the park activities, which made it nice when you wanted to get back away from the crowds. Great views, hiking trails, and abundant wildlife to view. Very unleveled and rocky terrain would be only downside.
The dancing rabbit trail is awesome: don’t forget bug spray. Spring fed waterfall/wishingwell crystal clear and COLD!!! Fishing w great Very peaceful!❤️❤️
This small but hidden treasure was built in the 40’s by the CCC and has been maintained throughout the years. It has a modern campground, hiking trails. A fishing lake and a swimming lake with paddle boats.
The staff are friendly and helpful and have a small store at the office for basic necessities.
the only thing negative I can say is the mosquitos come out at dark and are pretty bad so bring your mosquito spray.
it’s a great little getaway but local campground. a few trails to hike on. bathrooms are functional
Crowleys Ridge State Park is a small park but has. Lot to explore and discover. Two Lakes, several trails, a "spring" and plenty of camping options.
The weekend we visited there was a convergence of Scouts, even with the large group of little people the park didn't seem crowded.
The Campground is split into different areas. The first area is primitive with a latrine. The rear area has electric hookups for campers and there is a newer, well maintained showerhouse.
Our site was huge, enough room for several tents. There was a trail directly behind our site and another trailhead at the very back of the campground area.
The trails had interesting bridges and a suspension bridge. Moderate to strenuous. There is a swimming area next to a historic CCC building and bridge. The walk around the lake takes you to a wood walkway, stairs and a spring.
The second lake is clear , with boat ramp and dock, good for the fisher folk, okay for yakers, though not very big.
Wonderful place to visit! We really enjoyed the hiking opportunities this park offers :) The sites were nice, somewhat wooded area. They were not super secluded, but we had enough privacy. The facilities were very clean and near to the sites. So impressed with how Arkansas State Parks are maintained- we were pleased!
