This recreation area is part of Ouachita Lake
We visited for Easter and even with the chill it was a good trip. We were on the hill top, the view was limited but the night sky awesome. It was busy with many families but we had more then enough space to set up and plenty of privacy. The facilities were older but in good shape and well maintained. Plenty of activities to do around the park and on the water. Excellent family get away. Hot Springs is within easy driving distance.
Lake Ouachita is the state’s largest lake. This campground has lots of sites that have water views, but not all have easy access to the lake. Swim beach is very nice but crowded in summertime (not surprising!)
Nice bathhouse, boat launch and gorgeous water.
Close access to shopping for those last- minute needs.
We had a great time camping at lake oauchita state park. The water water wad beautiful and clear, the bath house was clean and the campgrounds were well maintained. We've already reserved a site for this summer.
This was our first trip here - brought our 23 Ft camper and stayed in Loop C. The well-Manicured and large sites under the tall trees and pines were Top-Notch! Many sites were on an incline, so there was a lot of terracing w great use of railroad timbers and crushed rock. Most sites were FULL HookUps. All had crushed rock pad for tent. Loop A which was NOT waterfront was heavily tree’d and huge sites as well. Restrooms were always clean and well stocked w TP and hand soap.
Kayak rental was cheap (and didn’t charge extra for staying out longer!)
We were BLOWN AWAY and can’t wait to make the long drive from Austin Tx again :-)
One of the best lakes/ parks I’ve visited. I went to Arkansas to visit the Hot Springs National Park, and left wishing I had stayed longer in Ouachita rather than visit Hot Springs. Great camping site, enough space for two tents. Beautiful trails to hike and bike. The fishing was equally as good.
Beautiful lake - crystal clear! RV sites are spacious with easy access to lake.
Lake Ouachita is a great place to camp. Many of the campsites have views of the lake and are spacious. They all have a fire ring, grill and picnic table. They also have family bathrooms that have a private shower/sink area. They have a few hiking trails as well.
There is enough nature to make this campground worth a visit. Rent a canoe or kayak and get out on the water, and hopefully see some wildlife. My favorite sites in the tent loop (B) would be site numbers 71 and 73.
Great on lake camping with lots of activities for everyone.
