Great experience

We ended up extending our stay 1 more night

First Camping Trip=Epic

This was our very first camping trip, and it was perfect. We visited over spring break for a few days. It was cold in the mornings (perfect for a fire and camp coffee), warm during the day (great hiking weather-no bugs or snakes), and cold at night (great snuggling weather). Loop A is great. Some sites are right by Lee Creek. The bathhouse is clean and warm. There is no power or water, but it didn’t bother us. We cooked over the fire and loved every minute.

Holiday weekend

Nice campground, long dirt road to get there. Fellow campers need to respect the other campers and the quiet solitude of nature. Beautiful two mile hike on the rim trail.

Great all around state park

This is a great place to camp or hike. It has a great trail that you can explore, with lots of large boulders and some caves that you can get real close to. I think you can go in them at some times too but when I was there it was closed due to something with the bats. There is also a pretty dam and lake that is right there for fishing or kayaking. When you think of a campsite that has it all, this one is it. It's got your water source, trails, big boulders to climb, caves. There is also a state park center to visit and get info. There are plenty of campsites and several cabins to rent. There is a horse trail and other things for horse but I haven't explored it. They do have a pool that is open for the summer. I have just been there to hike but saw these other amenities. Hope this helps.

This place is incredible!

Buffalo, horses and awesome amounts of fish! We stayed here in a duplex cabin and could just fish right out our back door. They have hiking trails and 2 private lakes. The RV area looked new because all of the power boxes had 50/30 and 120 outlets and breakers which is super cool. All of the sites had sewer and water connections too.

Great campgrounds

Love going camping at Bryds. The Brydfest events are always a pleasure and the Mulberry River is beautiful. Restaurant on site has great food too.

Love this place

I’ve been camping at Byrd’s for 15+ years. Every year they are improving.

Beautiful scenery, sites close together

The scenery at the overlook trail is amazing. Found a place to hang the hammock and had a relaxing time. Unfortunately it was walking stick mating season which added a strange element to the trip. Bathrooms were nice. The sites were very close together, too close for my liking.

Beautiful Park

Nice size tent camping areas. Had facilities close by. Was able to unplug and unwind since there is no cell phone reception. Can not wait to take our Grandson's with us on the next trip there so they can take advantage of all the trails that there is to hike and explore.

Amazing park!

This place is so awesome, we had such a great time hiking and playing in the creek. There is so much to do at this park and we definitely will be returning someday.

Great Camping Spots

We had a great spot located 200 yards from the lake. Also had the boat dock just on the other side of us. Great place to stay, friendly staff! Had a picnic table, grill and a covered area to sit at as well. No sewer at the site but did have dump stations. Most beautiful place by far!

Excellent facilities

An excellent park. With $12 million from Fort Smith and $10 from the state the renovation is all first class. There is a covered wagon in the new visitor center. The sites are lovely. No swimming in the lake but the pool is great.

Convenient to I-40

This is KOA, not my favorite place to stop, but they have good, basic facilities, sort of like Motel 6. They are just off I-40, so it was convenient for a one night stop. The sites were level, and were Pull-Thru so we didn’t even unhook. Full hookups, Some shade, a dump station. The shower/bathroom was clean. There is a small store. They also have cabins and tent sites; Free Wi-Fi, cable tv, a pool and playground, and a pond for fishing. There is a small Kamp K9 (dog park). When we were there everything was wet, and the smell of wet creosote from the log yard next door was terrible.

I love this place so much.

The river runs right through the property. There are a ton of trails to explore. They have a store and restaurant on site. The trip out there is amazing. They own 800 acres and have a ton of off-road trails for all.

Sunsets galore!!!

I had the place all to myself!! So peaceful and the best sunsets!! The staff family was awesome!!

Super nice family campground

It's totally worth the visit. It's on the Illinois river and is very well kept. Full hookups. Nice staff. Beautiful.

Clean Park

Great Corp of Engineers Park tucked in the trees south of Lake Dardanelle. Paved level sites with water and electricity and clean bathrooms. Nice fishing available.

Crowded in the summer, but nice facilities and trails

The main campground is a nice one with running water and showers. Several spots have good trees for hammocking. Sites are not self-pay, you need to go to the office to use a site. Main campground has sites you can park your car at, but they also have a section you have to walk a little ways to. You can also get a permit to back back on the Butterfield Trail.

Park has variety of trails including several mountain biking trails, shorter trails, and the 15 mile Butterfield Trail. Devil's Den is one of my favorite spots in the Missouri/Arkansas area. I try to go every year if I can!

Beautiful trails and views!

We love camping at Devils Den every spring! The trails are great and have beautiful views. The rangers and staff in the shop are very nice. Bring what you need the nearest store is about 20 minutes out and the restaurant is not that good.

Worth it just for the sunrise

Some of the reviews I read suggested that you need a four wheel drive vehicle to make the drive up. Maybe when it's wet that might be the case, but it was dry when we were there and we had no problem making the drive in a Fiat 500. If that little car can make it, any car can make it. Yes, you need to take it slow and easy, it's a rough, steep, gravel road.

We stayed in the tent campground. Peaceful spot, every star is visible. All of them. Beautiful sunrise in the morning viewed from the rim trail. Wish we had longer to explore, but we were off to Devil's Den right after breakfast. Hope to make it back some day.

Beautiful place

Fish this place often and also camp. They keep this place clean and have never had issues with other campers. Stays quiet. Only issue is, they do not have a cleaning station.

Great Spot

Their campsites are in a great spot, they are easily accessible on a paved road

The sites are not all level so be picky with what site you choose, we always go find an empty spot that will work first, they have horse camps, tv sites, and camper spots as well as small cabins, each spot has different amenities but most have electric and running water near!

Absolute beauty

Great campsites awesome trails, and if you need any help park staff are great help.

Beautiful

Beautiful sunsets, quit and very clean. Two playgrounds and a clean bath/shower house. We love camping here.

Great spot in NWA

Easily accessible from Interstate 49. Multiple sites to choose from. You can pay on site once you pick an open spot. They have bathrooms and shower facilities. Sites inside the park are close to trail heads. Park Rangers are active at night patrolling and doing park ranger things. Outside the park there are some better more spacious options to camp. They are next to the creek so you get the creek noise. Alittle more secluded. Overall a nice place to camp in NWA.

Great weekend trip

Great place to do some day hiking on a weekend. Nice views and some waterfalls

Beautiful park, great views and hiking.

Mount Magazine is a beautiful State Park with great hiking trails. We hiked Signal Hill (highest point in Arkansas) and the North Rim Trail. Both were beautiful. This is a great place for families to camp. There is a welcome center with a small gift shop. Our campsite was spacious with water and electric although we were tent camping. Shower and bathroom facilities were nice and clean. They also had a place to hang glide. We checked out some of the cabins for future options, and they looked amazing with beautiful views.

Okay

No hookups. Sites are small for campers. Scenic as it is on the lake
