Beautiful hidden gem

The "Parker Bottoms" area of this campground is amazing. The wife and I keep coming back year after year. There is trout fishing right along the grounds in the White River and the sites are well kept and beautiful. The local deer greet you at breakfast from across the street and the facilities are…

Sites are great, restroom weren't

This is a very small campground, opened year-round is the reason we stayed here. It was late March. The sites are very nice, generous size. The bathrooms were filthy.

The best part is the views from the Beaver Dam and the drive to Eureka Springs.

About This Campground

Overview

Dam Site River Campground sits on the shores of the White River, just below Beaver Dam and Lake in the Ozark Mountains. The campground features spacious and sunny campsites and an abundance of recreational activities.

Recreation

Fishing opportunities are plentiful near Dam Site River Campground. Just below the dam, the cold waters of the upper White River provide a perfect habitat for pole-bending rainbow and record-sized German brown trout. Nearby Beaver Lake has more than 28,000 surface acres of water, where anglers can try their luck at catching large and small-mouth bass, crappie, bream, white bass, stripers, and channel or spoon-bill catfish.

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

Dam Site River 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.

Natural Features

Towering limestone bluffs, natural caves and a variety of trees and flowering shrubs surround Dam Site River 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.

Nearby Attractions

Several marinas are located around the lake, offering groceries, fuel, boat rentals and storage, fishing guides and camping supplies. Click here for more information.
