Frist time camping

It was a good experience

new campground with great facilities

New campground. We stayed in site 1, which was a pull through with full hook ups. Each site has a designated tent pad as well as a lantern hook. Sites on the outside of the loop back up to the woods, sites on the inside of the loop are more exposed to other campsites. Staff was very friendly, bathroom and shower accommodations were clean and well maintained.

Fan-fun-tastic

Clean campground. Plenty of space.

Arkansas River Campground

Incredible people who were kind and very accommodating! We stayed in an RV lot and they let us put our teepee up and it was right on the river. Beautiful night stay!

Beautiful and secluded

Nice secluded area on sylamore creek with two nice swimming pools and a restroom building

The Caverns tour(s) should be on your bucket list

Nice facilities with 3 campground loops, gravel bottom creek (Sylamore Creek) swim area, small spring fed lake stocked with rainbow trout, but the big draw is the Blanchard Springs Caverns tours. Outstanding! Great place for all ages. If it fills up in peak season, head 6 mi upstream to Sylamore Creek campground.

Simple, quiet in the thick of the outdoors

Beware the swarms of ticks you may encounter if you come here in the wrong month and stand in the wrong place. This is primitive camping that comes with the attendant bugs. Consider yourself advised: pretreat with Permethrin or bring lots of bug dope. Other than that, this campsite offers access to some beautiful areas with water and hiking. It could be a destination of its own, or a traveler's stop on the way to/from the Calico Rock, the White River, Buffalo National River, Blanchard Springs Caverns, Ozark Folk Center, and other fine Arkansas places. After a day of Natural State tourist attractions, you might like some Natural State peace and quiet here.

My go to site in summer

Hi camp several times and Robinson. During the summer. If you own a boat, Lake Norfork is the place to be. It offers a big like to boat on or fish. Or you can rent pontoons boat JetSki‘s in assessor he‘s at any one of the multiple marine is located around the lake . The campsites are maintained by the Corps of Engineers and/or updated periodically. Many sites have views of the lake to just sit and watch the activities on the like. Very relaxing. Fish from the 550 miles of shoreline or get in your boat and enjoy the wide open areas of the like. We can’t ground offers electric water but no sewer hook ups there is a dump station available. The attendance are very friendly and helpful and the cost are very minimal compared to other campgrounds. Hope to see you there.

Fishing destination!

Like Charles is definitely a fishing destinations but offers many other activities of camping. There are trails for hiking or bike riding all three campground areas have access to the lake for fishing or bring your own boat and explore the lake. The bath houses have just been renovated and the facility is maintained very well. He there is a playground and swimming area, I boat ramp, haste door in the office, and the staff are very friendly and helpful . It’s in Arkansas so don’t forget your mosquito spray after dark.

Beautiful, primitive, secluded.

Stumbled across this site in September (2016). It's way back on a little dirt road past some farm land and homes.

Only a few campsites, no picnic tables, a fire ring, some heavily shaded spots, a couple sites right on the river (but none are far away). You feel like you are in the wilderness! Water is crystal clear and cool, didn't see another camper all weekend. Had a few folks using the boat ramps, but otherwise very private.

Great stargazing on the beach and you'll see some bats too! Think they really helped keep the bugs off us all weekend, barely had any problems with those.

Seriously beautiful campsite, and near some excellent floating & gorgeous springs.

Awesome annual trip

Always a good time. Cross Creek is the best campsite to reserve.

Hiking. fishing, swimming

It is close to a gr

nice getaway

close the the river and next to the hatchery Great fishing and it’s neat to watch the water rise from the dam.

You just can’t beat the Eleven Point

Great place to go primitive if the weather is right and no matter the weather, the water is beautiful. Our favorite time to go is in the fall when the leaves begin to change. The water may be chilly, but the views and the fishing are perfect. I highly suggest this place, but I do suggest lots of bug spray. For some reason, I always get eaten up by mosquitos in this area.

Beautiful Park

We stayed here 2 nights on a week-end. Every site was occupied. There was water, electric and sewer hookups in Area C only. Areas A and B had electric and water. All areas are shady and relaxing. Some of the waterfront sites in C area need more shade. We stayed in site 78 which was water view but not waterfront. The only complaints I had was the flies and people walking through our site to go to the lake to fish. I guess it was the only way for them to get to the lake so it's not that big of a deal. We enjoyed ourselves very much! Our site was in the shade the entire day. The ONLY place to dump trash is like a city block away. They do need more trash cans available to the campers. We did not catch any fish and did not see anyone else catch any either. We only saw a ranger ride through once the entire weekend. It was very quite and everyone was very nice.

hike in from several locations

spring is beautiful and a great place to camp if you’re filling up with H2O.

rustic, hike in, solitude

fun 2 day (three of you need it) hike through whites creek loop. Plan around hitting the two springs on both legs of the 20 mile loop. car camping available at the camp 5 pond trailhead (no water available). BRING A GPS! The trail is very easy to lose and after 20+ miles you’ll want the comfort of knowing where you have been/are going!

Blanchard Springs is great

It's a beautiful area. The woods, the hills, the bluffs, the river..and the Cavern is amazing. It is well worth the tour.

Wonderful overnight

We hiked in to this campground from Blanchard and were pleasantly surprised. It is primitive in some aspects but not overtly so. They have vault toilets that were manageable and spickets for water. We grabbed a site that had a bi-level for the tent and picnic table. There was a fire ring as well. Overall, it has some stuff to do being by the river and a longish trail to explore. We may have been to tired to care about some of the finer details so we were pretty happy with this site!

Clean bathrooms, clean park. Beautiful scenery. Lots to do.

There are limited camping spots. It’s best to go up by at least Thursday. No reservations. Honor system, old school, ticket drop pay. $10 a night. The people at the visitors center are excellent. Very kind and very helpful. And the cavern tour is amazing! Definitely worth it.

Spring River Oaks

Great place to take the family. Water hook ups , electric , dumping station . Camp in tents , rvs. No pets. Camping along the Spring river with excellent waterfront views. Small store on the campground for necessities and close enough to local shopping in town.

Great views

This is a great campground. Awesome views of the lake and great swimming off the rock outcrops. Water is so clear the only downside is no showers

Way out there..

Went for a week, so quiet, way out there. Cavern Tours are very cool! Keep food stuffs put away. Bring Bug spray…Lots

Nice Hideaway!

Close to water, critters, keep your foodstuffs put away. Bring the Deet.

Great place to get away from it all

This camping area does not have electrical hook ups, it is kind of rustic. The toilets are kind of big outhouses but the Sylamore creek is makes up for the facilities. If you are looking for a "glamping" place, this is not for you!

Clean quiet campground by the White river

Great spot for a quiet weekend away with the family. All sites have water and electric hookups and a dump station on the way out of the park.

Day trip

My friend and I took a day trip and come to see the falls . We walked around and took pictures and enjoyed our self's . This was a much needed day out !

Beautiful caverns in the Ozarks

Beautiful caverns with lots of hiking and water activities and a no-frills campground among rolling hills. Lots to do outside the park too.

Yay: easy to get to (near the edge of the park), educational information, lots of trail and cave tour options, shady campgrounds, swimming, waterfalls.

Nay: can be crowded.

Surprise: the standard cave tour is great, plus there is a more extreme tour where you can crawl and squeeze through trails in the caves! Also lots of folk music festivals so check the calendar.
