Kings River Falls Campground

4 Reviews


Less than a minute from the Kings River Falls trailhead and nestled alongside the headwaters of the Kings River in Venus Arkansas. This is a remote and rugged campground with caves, bluffs, swimming holes and river a plenty. This campground has a grand exhibition of the same sandstone formation that is responsible for the Whitaker Point (Hawksbill Crag) formation. Clovis like points have been found here, and so one might assume the bluffs and crags here have been inhabited for millennia.

We have picnic tables and fire rings at each site. If you have a large group, please contact us before booking to ensure that we are able to accommodate your group. This 7-acre property is completely surrounded by Arkansas Natural Heritage-Natural Area. There are miles of trails and cooling waters at every turn.

If you like Kings River Falls, get ready to fall in love with this Red Fern Campground.

Lose yourself in a fairy-tale land. With endless places to explore and amazing natural features at every turn this experience will not disappoint.

Most of our campsites are just yards away from a public swimming area, which is shared between our property and the Arkansas Natural Area. You should expect local traffic at the main swimming area during your stay. We have a private swimming area on our property which is just a short hike from the developed campsites (Please ask the camphost for directions).

Please be aware that cell phone service is spotty to virtually non-existent. Also, it's a good idea to bring waterproof hiking shoes or water shoes since our camping spots may require walking across a low water creek. This campground also requires travel down miles of county-maintained dirt roads. Expect your car to get dusty. We are unable to accommodate travel trailers and RVs at this time. Parking at your campsite requires a drive across a low water creek, otherwise you will need to park and walk across. Lastly, bring tick defense for yourself and your pets.

We had campsite #5 and loved how much room we had! You are close enough to see your neighbor campers but we couldn’t hear them at all. We had 2 dogs that loved the space too. Not much water right now on the river but will be back in the spring!

Amazing campground! You have to book through their website!

I saw the reviewer that claims that they could not find the campground. You have to book your stay at this private campground through their website. They will then give you very detailed directions to their private property. It is one of the most beautiful spots in Arkansas. Highly recommend.

Kings River Falls Campground is located in Arkansas

Detail location of campground


You can map to the Kings River Falls trail head on google maps. From there its east maybe 100 yards further down 3500. You will cross a low water bridge over the Kings River (Its not marked but that's what it is.), and see an old school house on your right. There is a dirt road next to the school house, take that road and you will see a small parking area to your left, if you continue past the parking area the road curves around and stay to your left and it dead ends at the campground. You can park in the parking area or you can drive across the creek and park at your campsite. Our property is marked with a Dripping Springs sign and also Private Property Guests Only and a couple of other signs. Each campsite has a picnic table and a fire ring.
