We were in site 11 and really enjoyed being able to fish (& catch) and put in kayaks from our site. You can rent kayaks, canoes, or paddle boats. The lake is the perfect size for kids to learn to kayak! This was our first time here but we will definitely be back!
The tent site that we had was great. (Site 37) It was right by the water with tons of room and a nice, level ground. Some hammock trees were nearby as well.There was a shared water spigot near the site.
You park in a small lot behind the tent sites and carry your things a short distance.
The bathrooms were clean, but they were quite a distance from the tents. This was my one and only complaint about this SP.
In the warmer months, starting in May, they rent out kayaks, paddle boats, and canoes. There is also a small concession stand you can order from.
My husband caught one fish while we were there from our camp site. It’s very handy being that close to the water.
There is a great hiking trail around the lake. About 3.5 miles if you combine the cabin trail with the Huckleberry trail. It was an enjoyable hike. There were people of all ages enjoying it.
We would definitely camp in this spot again!
We live close by and go usually once a week. Camping and hiking in fall and spring. Swimming, canoeing, fishing, or just hanging out in the summer. Sites fill up fast. New visitor center is nice. Park has a fishing tournament for the kids.
We visit here often. The park is close to home. We camp, fish, hike, swim, canoe, and just hang out in the hammock. The park is kept well maintained. The rangers are awesome. The hold fishing derby’s for the young kids. The park fills up fast in the weekends and peak seasons. No complaints ever. The park has a nice new visitor center.
Nice large sites with centrally located clean bathhouse. Nice swimming beach; good fishing for trolling motors only.
"Woolly Hollow State Park" is a hidden Gem !!! The drive on the Back Country 2 lane road drive is off Route 65,,, get's your excitement up wondering what to expect… There are no city light's to spoil the night's Starlite Sky.. And all you hear at quiet time are Mother Nature's soothing Sound's… It has Paved Road's,,, Concrete Pad's,,, Full Hookup's and a Lake to Fish or Swim in… The RV Site's are individualized almost no duplicate's… You are not sitting on top of each other's site… You have your own space to spread out… In our opinion all RV Park's should be setup like "Wooly Hollow State Park" !!! And if you just want to have a Good Ol' Family Picnic there are plenty of picnic area's with table's,,, some are covered… We give it """ 10 Star's """ !!!
This was our second trip to Woolly Hollow. The first time was in April, and the trails and waterfalls were better maintained and more beautiful in April. We still enjoyed our trip though. They have great trails for hiking and mountain biking. There is a nice swimming area with a shop to order drinks/snacks. The park rangers and staff were super friendly and helpful. The bathroom facilities were clean. Although we stayed in the RV camp area, the tent camping area had some great sites, some right on the water.
The best features of this State Park are: 1) it is close to Conway and an easy drive from Little Rock; 2) there is a separate loop for tent camping and it's closer to the water than the hookups loop; and 3) it has a nice swim beach open in season. I believe the State Park puts on some interesting programs, too, so watch their calendar. The hiking loops around the lake and grounds are just fine but cannot offer the majestic scenery of some of the more mountainous regions of the state. If you camp in the RV loop you will likely meet some nice folks and enjoy nature among other RVers. The park is well taken care of, but again, it's not winning awards for the most striking setting our state has to offer. Nonetheless, Woolly Hollow makes a good getaway for families that want to spend time outdoors, ride their bikes around or take a swim, look up at the stars, and not venture too far from home.
Amazing weekend right outside of the Ozark National Forest. The lake was closed for Maintenance but the state park ranger had a weekend full of planned events from a box turtle demo to a sand castle competition. the best part was the guided hike with Master Naturalist group of AR. They put our daughter right up front and identified every plant and tree we passed as well as answered every question she had. As a homeschool family we are always looking for learning opportunities and we are thrilled we stumbled upon this campground. Bathhouses were clean, the snack bar was great, the camp spots were roomy. Highly reccomend.
Lots of activities. Beautiful well maintained sites. Great for families.
