5 Reviews of Dam Site - Parker Bottoms
This was a gorgeous campground that was very well taken care of. The bathroom were fantastic. Private shower/bathrooms that smelled like cleaning solution and had air conditioning. Park attendant was very nice and eager to help. No trash around park. I did think the sites were a little tight to each other, especially if you didn’t get an end slot!
Loved exploring this park
Booked this visit for close little pseudo-holiday while working near Branson. The spots were very long and staggered in distance apart. No direct water access however there was a little hidden trail and some wooden steps down to the river behind our site. Lots of shade and a very quiet campground. Facilities were okay - unisex toilet/shower individual locking rooms. The dam siren seemed to go off each morning and the river levels fluctuated. The lake atop the dam was almost blue water!! (Unusual for the Midwest ;) Water was clear and gorgeous and not very much traffic. Love this area and would recommend camping here.
This campground is one of the hidden treasures of northern Arkansas. You are always close to the water and a short distance to a fantastic hike on Beaver lake. The facility was clean although we found the campsites close together.

This resevoir is so awesome to go to, I love scuba diving in the nice warm water here, fishing is also great, there are tons of trout! I hate to say it though, but us divers do sometimes get in the way of fishing. Other than that, this is one of my favorite places to go in AR, and all of the camp sites are either super close, or just a short walk from the water
