Great escape from technology

We found this campground and have been coming back as often as we can. There is no cell service in the campground but if you go up to the dam, we had anywhere from 3 to 5 bars of service. The campground is older but we loved it. The Nimrod Dam is worth a trip since you can walk on it and give it a…

Nice and quiet

My wife and I have never stayed at a USACE campground, but we will certainly start looking for them. This campground was very well kept, the camp hosts were so sweet and welcoming and best of all, it was nice and quiet.

There is no sewer hook up but there is a dump station. All sites are shaded…

About This Campground

Overview

River Road Campground sits along the shores of Fourche LaFave River and Nimrod Dam, cradled between Arkansas' Ouachita and Ozark Mountains. Visitors are greeted with shaded campsites, beautiful scenery and many outdoor recreation opportunities. Nimrod Lake provides the ideal spot to get away from it all, relax and enjoy yourself.

Recreation

Fishing is one of the most popular activities at the lake, with an abundance of crappie, largemouth bass, catfish and bream available. Boating, water skiing and tubing are also popular, with 11 boat ramps conveniently located around the lake, however, skiing and tubing are only allowed from the tip of Carden Point eastward toward the dam because areas west of there are too hazardous. Campers are likely to spot white-tailed deer, eastern wild turkey, bobwhite quail, squirrel, rabbit, fox, mink, black bear, dove and waterfowl in the area. Seasonal hunting is also permitted throughout the forested area around the lake, except in or near recreation areas.

Facilities

With 21 spacious and modern campsites (15 campsites in the River Road Loop and 6 campsites in the Project Point Loop) and one large day use group picnic shelter, River Road Campground has plenty of room for the family. A boat ramp into the river and playground are also provided.

Natural Features

Nimrod Dam was completed in 1942 as part of a comprehensive plan for flood control and development of water resources in the Fourche LaFave River. Although recreation was not part of the initial mission of the dam project, the lake and surrounding 21,000 acres of pristine land have now become a recreational oasis for outdoor enthusiasts.

Nearby Attractions

Nimrod Lake is conveniently located adjacent to State Highway 7, a National Scenic Byway and other nearby points of interest like Petit Jean State Park, Mount Nebo State Park and Hot Springs National Park.
