Dam Quarry Campground is an angler's paradise. Located in northern Arkansas, just downstream of the Norfork Dam, the campground is renowned for its world-class trout fishing.
The Norfork Lake region was one of the state's first water recreation areas with opportunities like water skiing, canoeing, scuba diving, and of course, fishing.
While fishing is the top-rated activity in the lower river area, kayaking, birding and hiking are also very popular.
The public land around Norfork keeps hunters busy with white-tailed deer, wild turkey, squirrel, rabbit and quail.
Kids will enjoy the playground and everyone will find fun in the water. A boat ramp is on-site and a marina is located just above the dam. Everything but the group sites have electric hookups.
The campground sits at the banks of the North Fork River and Dry Run Creek. The river feeds the popular 22,000-acre Norfork Lake, which is just upstream from Dam Quarry. The site has beautiful views of the forested hills and hollows of the Ozarks.
A short drive south takes visitors to the Ozark National Forest for sightseeing and wildlife spotting. The campground is also just three miles northeast of the small town of Norfork.

We reserve the group site every year. There are several camp sites in this one location. Great for family get together. Private pavilion. Vault toilets are being upgraded to flush. Electricity and water, but not at every site. Right by Norfork Dam and Norfork River.
Beautiful waterfront camping! The water is clear and freezing cold, and the breeze off the water feels amazing! The sounds from the dam releasing water is so peaceful! Would definitely recommend and stay here again!
close the the river and next to the hatchery Great fishing and it’s neat to watch the water rise from the dam.
