Lake Ouachita


Groups and families of all sizes come to camp at Denby Point for its scenic views, year-round fishing and convenient boating facilities. The campground promises to entertain jet skiers, boaters, hikers and birders alike. Click here for the Lake Ouachita Virtual Tour.


World-class striper fishing brings crowds of anglers year-round, and incredibly clear waters attract scuba divers, hoping to explore the flooded forests and mountain valleys below the lake's surface. Hikers take pleasure in the Lake Ouachita Vista Trail (LOViT), which lines the southern end of the lake.


The campground consists of 67 sites including 58 with electric and water hookups. The two group campsites also have electric hookups. Other amenities include a dump station, fish cleaning station, hot showers, boat ramp and a swim beach.

Natural Features

Lake Ouachita sits in the heart of the Ouachita Mountains, just 28 miles west of Hot Springs National Park. The lake stems from the Ouachita River and boasts 692 miles of shoreline and over 40,000 surface acres.


This location is unstaffed. To speak with our main office for general information, please call: (501) 767-2101.

Nice setting near lake, clean, specious

Only problem is some sites are hard to get to. We had 42C and it would have been tricky to back into it. The ranger on site switched our location to 33B and all is well. Other than that it's a nice little park. Not crowded, plenty of trees, near the lake. Recommended . ATT reception ok on 5G, 2 bars, could stream Netflix.

Absolutely stunning!

This was our 3rd time here and I’m pretty sure we will come back every year!! We stayed in a different loop than we normally do, and it is now our favorite! The site is HUGE!! You can’t hardly even see your neighbors. The lake view is stunning, and this site had access to get down to the lake for fishing. It might be a little hard to get a big trailer into, but we have a popup, and it was no problem at all! Very shaded and the bathrooms are nice and clean. I can’t wait to come back!!
