Beautiful secluded campground

We camped here during the month of October in the walk in spots. We were pretty close to the river. We pretty much had the entire area to ourselves since the weather was cold and rainy. We made the best of it. The bathrooms are cleaned daily and the hot showers worked great. I recommend this campground if you’re looking to get away from it all. The hiking trails nearby are great.

Great trout fishing!

Beautiful waterfront camping! The water is clear and freezing cold, and the breeze off the water feels amazing! The sounds from the dam releasing water is so peaceful! Would definitely recommend and stay here again!

Great views and right next to Sand Island!

Kids had a blast here! Cliff jumping, great fishing, kayaking, swim beach, and even pizza from the marina!

Great spots and people

Most spots are river view.. nice breezes

Nice fall camping

I don’t enjoy camping here during summer way overcrowded but is wonderful this time of year!!! Enjoyed our weekend!!

Great camping spot

We canoed & kayaked in from Tyler Bend Campground. Great place to camp. Not much on amenities. Perfect for what we were looking for. Would definitely go back.

Phenomenal Spot

Great camping. Very close access to stunning Buffalo National River with crystal clear water running through the Ozarks. High bluffs. Nice facilities with bathrooms, potable water, etc. definitely going back.

Nice place

Good place go camping, water is nice when you go night swimming more than the day since the water is awful during the day since it's a little warmer than I like.

Some of the best spots in Arkansas

Many primitive camping spots throughout this area, plenty of trails of all levels, and waterfalls. There are tent pads available at the entrance and primitive spots deeper along the trails if you are backpacking.

Really Good!

There is a beautiful area to swim in the cleat water of the buffalo river. The bathrooms are clean with hot showers, campsites were well maintained and we enjoyed using the paved loop for our skateboards and scooters. We also enjoyed viewing some wildlife while we were there. Saw a bobcat in the wild for the first time ever! Directly across from where the put caonoes in there is a cold water spring, very pretty and refreshing!

Worth the drive!

Very nice/clean campground in Richland Creek Wilderness. Several trails and waterfalls close by. Drive-up spot, fire-ring, picnic bench, hook, pit toilet. Day use area for hiking. The dirt road leading in is well maintained

Quiet, Clean bathroom park

Sugarloaf has become my family’s go to camping area. Campsites are usually easy to book in advance, and we never had any problems with reservations. Swimming are and powered bathrooms are great. Park rangers patrol the park throughout the day and night, giving all campers piece of mind. As most campsites are, there are no real defined borders and all Greers Ferry and Heber Springs are surrounded by residential areas. We had an instance where a gentleman rode his ATV through the woods and just walked up to multiple campsites. He was friendly but later that night someone tried to open my car door, causing the alarm to go off. Proper authorities were called and they eventually caught up with him. Out of the 20+ years we’ve used Sugarloaf, this is the only issue we’ve experienced.

Waterfall heaven!

This place was amazing. These sites were well kept and spaced enough to feel private. We never made it to hike to twin falls but we did play in the creek and jump off the big rocks. We eventually drove down and found falling water falls, and six finger falls! I recommend making a trip to both of you go out this way. The water was a little cloudier than normal due to the recent rainfall but still beautiful!

Great place

We have stayed at here several times.    The kids enjoy the playgrounds x 3, walking, plenty of open space, and watching the barges coming down the river.   Area real close to town.  Not much to hike.  Sites are roomy.   Bathroom is always clean.  Camp host pleasant.

Small but awesome

We live close by and go usually once a week.  Camping and hiking in fall and spring.  Swimming, canoeing, fishing, or just hanging out in the summer.  Sites fill up fast. New visitor center is nice.  Park has a fishing tournament for the kids.

Close to home

We visit here often.  The park is close to home.   We camp, fish, hike, swim, canoe, and just hang out in the hammock.  The park is kept well maintained.   The rangers are awesome.  The hold fishing derby’s for the young kids.  The park fills up fast in the weekends and peak seasons.   No complaints ever.   The park has a nice new visitor center.

Hidden treasure beautiful place

This is primitive camping at its best. They have one vault toilet, 12 tent sites, and a water spigot. Right on the beautiful buffalo river. The sites were patrolled by rangers on a regular basis. However, the rangers were great and knew a lot about area. I can’t wait to go back.

Beautiful scenery and great River access

We stayed in the c loop and it was nice and shady, but the sites are a little close together, good for a group of campers. The facilities were clean, but a little outdated. The river was great and had plenty of places to swim. Wear good water shoes its a good walk down to get to the river and for any tech people out there, the only cell/tv reception you get is at the top of the hill before going down to the campground, but anyone wanting to get away from it all it's great. There is a great restaurant at the top of the hill I'd recommend trying, reasonable prices, good food and a great overlook view of the river

An Arkansas Unknown

Favorite campsite in the spring. Beautiful bluffs take you right down to the water. Stone pavilions with fireplaces for cold weather camping. Best kept secret.

Camp and Float on Lower Buffalo

We tent camped at the Buffalo Point Campground in loop B for a few days. These sites are the closest to the river and the swimming area. The sites are pretty close together, but there were a few that had more room (next time). We rented from Wild Bills and floated to Rush. It was gorgeous! We saw tons of wildlife and were the only ones on the river on a Thursday morning. The sites being close together and the lack of a super flat area for our tent is the reason for the 4 star. Plus the bathrooms were a little dirty, but they had great pressure and hot water. Don’t miss out on the Indian Rockhouse trail and the concession restaurant. Get the broasted chicken breast and jojo potatoes. Trust me. Plus a piece of peanut butter pie!

Great place

Very nice family friendly campground. Just don’t camp on lower sites when raining.

Our Favorite

Wonderful family friendly campground with all needed amenities.

Pretty but crowded

The "river" that runs nearby was low and it's cold as it's spring fed. It's a steep decline to get down to the water and really hard to get back up. Guest services were good, but the punch code box to get in is tricky. We spent most of our time at the State Park instead of here. RV and tent sites are mixed together and it's a tight fit and constant struggle to keep vehicles out of the way of other people coming and going.

Great get away

It’s free camping , the restrooms and all the campsites are in the same area , every site has a hard top cover and fire place water hookups and electric , but my favorite part is swimming in salado creek , there is a rope swing . Only downfall is it’s right on the main highway so trucks get kinda loud at night sometimes

This is one incredible camping experience

This is an incredible place to camp. Your camp is where the White River and Buffalo rivers merge. If you enjoy fishing this has some of the best trout and bass fishing in the area. The resort has cabins, full hookup sites , tent sites, pool and play area for the kids. If you like to just float or fish they can help you with what you need. There is also boat rentals , fishing guides, just plain relaxing. The resort is family owned,

Amazing Campground

This Campground is quiet, secluded jewel in Clinton, Arkansas. Tall trees everywhere you look. Every campsite is shaded. Perfectly spaced trees for the hammock lovers.

Beautiful view of the lake

A nice busy but not wild family camping area. Has a swim area and marina, kids can feed the fish, able to rent boats or kayaks/canoes also. Family friendly and relaxing.

One of my absolute favorites!

Beautiful Campground. Friendly Host and Rangers. Easy access to the river. Book early they fill up as soon as sights are released!

Beautiful location /terrible bathroom situation

Breathtaking sites along lake- electric and water no sewer. Campsites have an outhouse which they share with all the people that come to swim-2 seats per sex. Up at Marina there is a flush bathroom with shower/2 stalls but it is not maintained well. Toilet seat was broken last year and when we came back this year it never was repaired. But the vistas and hiking are wonderful- the place could be awesome if cared for.

Typical Arkansas Campground

Very well maintained. Super nice info center. Camp sites have good amount of space between. Right in the heart of some cool outdoorsy things. No hookups at RV sites! $20 a night. Great cell service. No TV service. We will be back.
