Horseshoe Bend Campground 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.
Fishing opportunities are plentiful near Horseshoe Bend Campground. Beaver Lake has more than 28,000 surface acres of water, and anglers can try their luck at catching large and small-mouth 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 a perfect habitat for pole-bending rainbow and record-size 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 animals such as deer, rabbits and squirrels.
Many other sports and activities await campers, including boating, swimming, picnicking, scuba diving, water skiing, spelunking and sightseeing.
Horseshoe Bend Campground has large campsites with plenty of shade and room for activities, and is steps away from the lake shore. Fire rings, picnic areas, drinking water and flush toilets all make for a comfortable camping getaway.
There are also three large group picnic areas available, perfect for large parties and family get-togethers.
Towering limestone bluffs, natural caves and a variety of trees and flowering shrubs surround Horseshoe Bend Campground, 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.
Several marinas are located around the lake, offering groceries, fuel, boat rentals and storage, fishing guides and camping supplies. Click here for more information.

Great family Corp campground. Some sites have electric and water some just electric. Great for walking, riding bikes. And walking the dog. Last Saturday weekend in October people decorate there sites and kids trick or treat the campers .
We stayed on a rustic plot with electricity. There was a trail going to Beaver Lake from our campsite which made for a grear personal fishing spot. The restrooms and showers were conveniently situated but could have been cleaner. (Lots of spiders and bugs!) The swimming beach was a short walk from our campsite and was more than perfect. The bluffs around the lake make it a scenic experience as well. Go! Enjoy!
Horseshoe Bend is another campground around Beaver Lake. Just like the others it is very pretty with a lot of camping options. They have probably the most lakeside options for camping, but currently most of the sites next to the lake are damaged from washed up trees and high water. Hopefully this is something that will be cleaned up and fixed in the off season.
The green space is well maintained and mowed with a lot of tall trees. This would be a four star campground if the majority of the lakeside campsites were operable.
