Quiet and friendly staff

Can't not beat the price and the spot. Nice views, great place to unwind for a couple days with friendly staff. Bathrooms with showers, with an Access pass it's $10/night with electric and water. WOW! A lot of people seem to be camping here and taking their boats out.

Level spots with picnic tables and fire pits. Couldn't get our Starlink to work with tree coverage but have reception.

Nice CoE park

Overall nice place to camp. There were several RVs and tent spots occupied during our visit, but the park never felt crowded. Most of the lower sites were closed though, so I’d imagine during the summer the place would seem cramped. Excellent lake with great fishing and beautiful sunsets. Located approximately 30 minutes from Mt. Magazine lodge for those that want some great outdoor rock climbing.

The downgrade to 4 stars stems from the mildly confusing layout of the campsites with no helpful signs in place to navigate. They just kinda paved roads here and there with no rhyme or reason. Getting into the winter sites requires an abrupt acute turn to the left from the main road into the sites, so be ready to disconnect your sway control….the loop is also closed so you’re going out the way you came in which leaves some very Austin Powers like antics to get out back to the main road. Also, the water for spots 19-27 (odd numbered) are about 60 feet away, so be prepared for that. Last, none of the gate houses were staffed, so it was a mild free-for-all.

Nearest Walmart was Booneville, about 30ish minutes away. T-Mobile showed 2-3 bars of 5G, though actual performance was kinda sus, phone service was seemingly standard but my laptop on the hot spot wasn’t having it.
