This recreation area is part of Beaver Lake
It was great for kids and adults the trails it had were great for everyone
All sites have nice tent pads, concrete picnic tables, fire rings, and lantern hooks. The sites are either on the river side of the long skinny loop or on the road side(sandwiched between the main road and the campground road). All sites have great hammock trees, and late at night and early in the morning you can hear the river from everywhere. However, you have to work really hard to get down to the river as the campground sits on high ground next to the river. You are better off going down the road a bit to get to one of the fishing access points instead. All of those have a nice parking area and a wide trail up and over a berm to get down to the river and skinny trails along the river for fishing. They also have several horns scattered up and down the river to warn of sudden flooding/high water when the have to do a release from the dam upstream. It will startle you for sure!
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
