Beaver Lake

Overview

Hickory Creek Park sits along the vast shores of Beaver Lake in the Ozark Mountains of Northwest Arkansas, offering spacious and sunny campsites and an abundance of recreational activities.

Recreation

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

Hickory Creek Park has large campsites with plenty of shade and room for activities, and is steps away from the lake shore. Campfire rings, picnic areas, drinking water and flush toilets all make for a comfortable camping getaway. Group picnic shelters are also available, making it the perfect site for large parties or family gatherings.

Natural Features

Towering limestone bluffs, natural caves and a variety of trees and flowering shrubs surround Hickory Creek Park, 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.

Reservation Info

Reservations should be made at least two days in advance and can be made as far as six months in advance. A host is available on site to handle check-ins and to answer any questions or address any problems guests may encounter. Campsites are suited for RVs or tents.

Nice Campground

Quiet and clean. Enjoyed the electric hookup and place to dump. Our site was #19. We have a 26 ft travel trailer. Easy to back in and minimal leveling. Alot of trees and grass areas.

Not a destination but fine if it’s convenient

Loved to see that the campground had so many sites on the water, but the bathrooms were not kept up and barking dogs in the surrounding neighborhoods were the soundtrack of our evening. I suspect that the campground would be fun in the summer (there is a boat ramp right in the campground) but I wouldn’t come back for cool weather camping.
