Island camping fully accessible

The main camping area is on an island that you drive onto, how cool is that?! Unfortunately, it was temporarily closed due to Covid19, and a lot of the sites were flooded from high water anyway. I took a walk over the spit of land connecting the camping island with the mainland and walked around the small(maybe a couple acres) island. Here’s what I saw: every site had water and electric hookups, a picnic table, and a fire ring. Sites right on the lake(and some very much under water) also had a pavilion covering the picnic tables. Sites in the middle had nice mature tree cover, but weren’t necessarily as level as the lake sites. The bathhouse was closed, but looked fairly new or at least well maintained. I didn’t see any boat launches or places to bring your boat right up to sites, but back on the mainland is a public boat launch. There are also some sites along the lake on the mainland, also with electric and water hookups.

Quiet camping with great fishing.

This Corps of Engineers campground provides the necessities for fishermen. Reservable and walk up sites with picnic tables, electric and water hookups. Some with shelters. Showers and restrooms are well maintained. The office is closed two days a week but you can pay the attendant at their site. Access to the Norfork River means you can be fishing early before they start generating for the day (check the generation schedule at When you’re not fishing on the river you can take a tour of the fish hatchery across the road or ride up to the lake for a swim. Dry Run Creek, which runs by the hatchery to the river, is only fishable by kids 16 and younger or those with mobility impairments, but it’s still a beautiful place for a walk or picnic even if you don’t get a shot at one of the thousands of trout.

Beautiful island campground

Love camping on this island, but sites fill up quickly on weekends and holidays. Most sites are waterfront. As suggested by the name, the dam is nearby, providing a pretty sight after dark. Not all sites are shaded. Island has flooded in the past, so if there has been local flooding, check to make sure it is open. Great campground for boaters, too. Pets are welcome, showers and drinking water available. Sites are electric.


Went there a lot as a teenager

Beaver Lake Campground

This was a Great Campground with Beautiful views.No water hook ups on site 24 but we were right on the water Nice Staff. For you RV campers nice Dump Station. Will definitely be back.

The only negative thing was the road was closed across the Dam so we had to go a longer route road should be open in 3 weeks.
