    Welcome to Harris Brake Lake, a dispersed camping area in Arkansas that's perfect for those who love a bit of solitude and natural beauty. This spot offers a stunning view of the lake, especially at sunset, which many visitors have raved about. It's a great place to unwind and enjoy the simple pleasures of nature.

    One of the standout features here is that it's free to camp, which is always a nice bonus. You won't find any amenities like drinking water, electric hookups, or toilets, so come prepared. However, there are picnic tables and fire pits available, making it a decent spot for a rustic camping experience. Fires are allowed, so you can enjoy a cozy campfire under the stars.

    Pets are welcome, so feel free to bring your furry friends along. Just be aware that some campers have mentioned the presence of ticks, so it's a good idea to check your pets (and yourself) regularly.

    The area is big rig friendly, so if you're towing a trailer, you should have no trouble finding a spot to park without needing to back up. The location is also relatively quiet, though you might hear some traffic from nearby roads.

    Fishing enthusiasts will appreciate the lake, which is known for its great fishing opportunities. Just remember to bring your own gear and supplies, as there's no market or store nearby.

    Overall, Harris Brake Lake offers a peaceful and scenic spot to camp, with the added benefit of being free. Just come prepared for a more primitive experience, and you'll likely have a great time.

    Many people enjoy the solitude and primitive experience of camping away from developed campgrounds and other campers. Dispersed camping is the term used for camping anywhere in the National Forest OUTSIDE of a designated campground. Dispersed camping means no services; such as trash removal, and little or no facilities; such as tables and fire pits, are provided. Some popular dispersed camping areas may have toilets.

    There are extra responsibilities and skills that are necessary for dispersed camping. It is your responsibility to know these before you try this new experience. Camping rules and regulations apply to make your experience safe, and to keep the natural resources scenic and unspoiled for other campers.

    Typically, dispersed camping is NOT allowed in the vicinity of developed recreation areas such as campgrounds, picnic areas, or trailheads. Many people drive out on Forest Service roads into the woods and find a clearing or a spot near a stream or with a view of the mountains. Do not drive on meadows to access your camping site. Drive on existing roads to prevent resource damage. To prevent resource damage please keep your campsite within 150 feet from a roadway.

    How to Pick a Campsite If you are going to an area where others have camped before, pick a site that has been used before. Plants, soil and wildlife are impacted by new campsites so using existing ones will minimize your impact in the forest. If there is no existing campsite, then follow Leave No Trace guidelines.

    If you are one of those folks who prefers a different, more rugged camp experience, primitive camping is allowed almost anywhere in the Ouachita National Forest unless there is a sign stating otherwise, or it is a wildlife food plot. Located throughout the Forests are areas that have been campsites for many years. These are located along roadsides, trails, mountain tops, or near streams. Camping at dispersed locations have additional responsibilities: "Leave No Trace" so others can have a similar backcountry experience, pack out any trash or litter, scatter campfire ash around so it doesn't pile up, and leave the area better than you found it.

    Please filter water before drinking! Beware of stream crossings after heavy rains. Please read the Dispersed Camping guidelines before heading out. https://www.fs.usda.gov/detail/ouachita/recreation/?cid=fseprd727994
