All sites are very shady with lots of trees and waterfront sites have beautiful views. But the pavement through the campsite is awful. It desperately needs to be repaved or even gravel would be better than what’s there. Bathhouses are the same- old and rundown… they need lots of work. Also some of the campsite parking pads are rather small so depending on the size/length of your camper, many of the sites won’t work at all. Would love to see them revitalize this campground! Marina is great though! Close to the campground and kids can buy fish food to feed the fish. There’s also a little food counter outside where they sell bbq and sno cones. Nice little covered deck area outside the marina with picnic tables where you can eat lunch.
These are free campsites at a nice little rest area a few miles outside of Batesville AR. There is a creek off to one side of the camping area that used to be a popular swimming hole but has a local reputation of being pretty snakey. The campground is rarely used by campers. There are no showers but there are flush toilets and sinks in the rest area. There is no on site staff and the rest area is moderately busy. It’s a nice free choice for someone traveling through the Batesviile AR area. I have camped there numerous times.
Nice sites on the lake. We camp here a lot since it is close to our house. Staff is friendly and doesn't get in your business. Drive through to find the choice sites. This last time we were able to camp right on the water and park our boat at the site. Busy on the weekends so make sure and reserve. Weekdays are pretty peaceful. The lake is busy but large enough that even at busy times there is room for fun. Fishing, boating, hiking, and swimming are all close by.
The location of this campground is incredible! So incredible, that I am trying to figure out a way to go every weekend! I am a river girl, so this is my heaven. The campground is broken up into different sections. The front sections A, B & C are closer to the river and have better river views. We stayed in section D. There is about 100 yards of trees between you and the river, so I doubt you get river views during the summer, but you can see the river during leaf off.
The bathrooms are older, but they were clean. Our site had electric and water hook ups. No sewer.
You can access the river and trout fish right from the campground. This is also a day use area, so the boat ramp and fishing pier are pretty busy during the day. The fish hatchery is also on site and is worth stopping by and spending a few minutes here (free).
The Collins Creek Trail is also accessible from the campground. No need to drive to the trailhead. Take the trail that starts where the bridge crosses from Section C to D closer to the back of the campground. It is worth the short hike. There was plenty of water flowing over the cascades during January, but I have been told that it is pretty dry during the Summer.
If you are wanting to eat a local dinner, I highly recommend checking out Lindsey's Resort that is near by. I believe the restaurant is only open on the weekends. We went on a Friday night and did not have too long of a wait. The food was excellent!
6 primitive camping spots with picnic tables, grill and trash cans. The site has a men and women's restroom with flushing toilets and sinks and is handicap accessible. This is also the take out point from a 12 mile float from Camp Tahkodah, a 20 min. drive away.
