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.
We have camped twice at Wooly Hollow and visited once as a day trip. We love Wooly Hollow. It is very clean and quiet. There is lots of shade and several sites on the water. Our favorite trip we stayed in site #1 that was a pull through site with a water view. There is also an artesian well just feet from site #1. The sound of it is so relaxing. The water was a little muddy when we were here. There are paddle boats that you can rent and fishing boats, too. There is a large playground for the children (we don't have any of those). The trails are easy to walk and the nature is awesome here.
Wooly, Hollow State park is a great place for a family camping trip. They have 30 campsites with power, water, and sewer hookups. The park offers hiking, swimming and rentals paddle boats.
