Beaver Lake

Overview

Prairie Creek 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.

Recreation

Fishing opportunities are plentiful near Prairie Creek 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.

Facilities

Prairie Creek 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. A sand volleyball court, five-lane boat ramp and playground make the area perfect for families and other large groups.

Natural Features

Towering limestone bluffs, natural caves and a variety of trees and flowering shrubs surround Prairie Creek 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 for families!

I only gave this a 4 star because the site we stayed at was not taken care of and NOT level. But we needed the shade and it was quiet. We enjoyed our selves. The campground has a LOT of loops, beach areas, fishing, marina, and CLEAN showers and restrooms. Very close to Rogers for entertainment and food but remote enough to be quiet and relaxing. Would come back here but we would opt for another site.

Beautiful Area, Poor Management

The nature at this park is beautiful, however it is managed by the U.S. Army Corp Engineers who are very stingy. They give out citations like they’re candy. Any rule broken even if on unknowingly, accidentally or with justification they are quick to give you a citation which goes on your federal record. We accidentally parked in the wrong campsite and immediately corrected it once we were informed it was the wrong site, however were still given a citation. After having a poor experience with a ranger and his supervisor I will be avoiding land managed by the U.S. Amy Corps. On top of the extremity, the facilities and sites were poorly maintained and the crowd at this campground made us feel unsafe. I do not recommend this campground.

Very steep and off camber site

It was hard to find the correct area (but I did arrive at dusk so that made it harder.) My site, only one of a few remaining when I booked weeks ago, is down a steep drive that ends on a cambered slope. The paved area of the driveway has a substantial 4-5" dropoff on one side so be careful of your tires. You'd certainly be worse off with a bigger camper than my van, but it really is unacceptable. There aren't good places for a tent (but I don't need one.) Verizon seems fine. No wifi. Most campsites are only feet from the camp road and very close together. The area is well shaded. There is 30A electric, but there is no way I'd plug into it. It looks to have been installed decades ago and not touched since then. (Some of the electric boxes look updated.) Ditto on the bathhouses...not clean, not modern. Yikes!
