US Army Corps of Engineers

Norfork Lake


Gamaliel Campground is conveniently located on the Bennetts Bayou area of Norfork Lake. Most sites are shaded beneath tall trees, while others come equipped with canopies to shade the picnic tables. Norfork Lake boasts plenty of secluded coves for water sports and breezy, open stretches for sailing. There are 19 well-maintained Army Corps of Engineers parks along the lake for bountiful water sport opportunities.


Explore the mile-long nature trail that loops from the campground. Sailing the open waters makes for an exciting water activity. Scuba diving in the lake is common, attracting divers from neighboring U.S. states. For visitors interested in fishing, Norfork Lake is stocked annually, and it's not unheard of to catch striped bass over 40 pounds.


The 64 campsites have electric hookups and drinking water. A boat ramp, playground, swim beach and marina are also on-site. Most campsites do not have a view of the lake.

Natural Features

Norfork Lake stems from the North Fork River in northern Arkansas. It's about 25 miles east of Bull Shoals lake, and cuts through the Ozark Mountains. The Ozarks are made from a heavily eroded plateau, shaped and carved by hundreds of streams over thousands of years. The region attracts a wide array of plants and animals.

Nearby Attractions

Head south to see the Ozark National Forest and head west to see Bull Shoals Lake, a similar man-made lake that's larger in size and equally entertaining as Norfork.

Great camping

I have been camping at Fout's at Gamaliel Arkansas since I can remember. The sites are great but close to each other. The park is clean and well maintained with a playground for the littles, and they have clean, full bathrooms on site. Nearby to a dock and marina with rentals, bait and gear available.
