About Hickory Creek Park

Hickory Creek Park sits along the vast shores of Beaver Lake in the Ozark Mountains of Northwest Arkansas, offering spacious and sunny campsites and an abundance of recreational activities.

Recreation

Fishing opportunities are plentiful near Hickory Creek Park. Beaver Lake has more than 28,000 surface acres of water, and anglers can try their luck at catching large and smallmouth bass, crappie, bream, white bass, stripers, and channel or spoon-bill catfish.

Just below the dam, the cold waters of the upper White River provide the perfect habitat for pole-bending rainbow and record-sized German brown trout.

Several trails snake throughout the Ozark Mountains, offering peaceful hiking, biking and wildlife viewing opportunities for visitors.

Hunters will find game plentiful in northwest Arkansas. A mixture of hardwood and evergreen forest provides a good home to many different species of wildlife. While Beaver Lake is conveniently located near several population centers, within a short driving distance hunters can find remote areas filled with upland game such as deer, rabbits and squirrels.

Many other sports and activities await campers, including boating, swimming, picnicking, scuba diving, water skiing, spelunking and sightseeing.

Facilities

Hickory Creek Park has large campsites with plenty of shade and room for activities, and is steps away from the lake shore.

Campfire rings, picnic areas, drinking water and flush toilets all make for a comfortable camping getaway. Group picnic shelters are also available, making it the perfect site for large parties or family gatherings.

Natural Features

Towering limestone bluffs, natural caves and a variety of trees and flowering shrubs surround Hickory Creek Park, making it an ideal retreat for outdoor enthusiasts.

Beaver Lake and Dam, completed in 1966, was constructed in the White River Basin and boasts 449 miles of beautiful shoreline at the top of the conservation pool.

Although the dam was originally built for flood control, hydroelectric power and public water supply, it has also created a popular recreational oasis.

Hickory Creek Park is nice enough, but not likely my 1st choice

Stayed last week at Hickory Creek Park on Beaver Lake near Lowell, Arkansas. We had a nice week. I think we had a nice spot in campsite 34.

Pros:

• Very nice people - both hosts/staff and campers

• Nice local area - fruit market, old-fashioned gas & grocery, flea market, good regular grocery, and anything you'd want or need nearby

• Good Midway point between Hobbs State Park and Devil's Den State Park

• Great lake views at every campsite

Cons:

• Single shower house for the whole park

• Only 2 trash dumpsters for the whole park - quite a walk to get to each

• No ice, wood, or other supplies available onsite

• Poorly signed - easy to get lost on the way in to the park

I would stay here again, but I'm not sure it would be my first choice in the area. But my family had a really nice week.
