    Compton, Arkansas

    Kyles Landing Campground, located near Harrison, Arkansas, is part of the Buffalo National River area. This spot is a favorite among campers for its beautiful scenery and access to the river. The campground operates year-round and offers a rustic experience with amenities like drinking water, toilets, and picnic tables. Fires are allowed, so you can enjoy a cozy campfire under the stars.

    One of the standout features of Kyles Landing is its prime location for kayaking and hiking. Many visitors have praised the easy access to the river, making it a great spot to launch a kayak. The campground is also a starting point for several hiking trails, including the spectacular Eye of the Needle and the easier Twin Falls trail. If you're into fishing or swimming, the crystal-clear waters of the Buffalo River won't disappoint.

    The road leading to the campground has been a topic of discussion among campers. While it has seen improvements, it's still a steep and somewhat rough drive. However, most vehicles can make it if you take it slow. There's also a general store at the top of the hill where you can rent kayaks and use coin-operated showers.

    Kyles Landing is a first-come, first-served campground, so arriving early is a good idea, especially during peak seasons. The lack of cell service here is a blessing in disguise, offering a perfect opportunity to disconnect and enjoy nature. Whether you're planning a family trip or a solo adventure, Kyles Landing provides a serene and scenic escape.

    As of Oct 2021 - Haw Creek Falls—Located on Hwy 123, this newly designated Point of Interest will be accessible year-round. Removal of the gate across the low-water bridge and suspension of fees will be immediately implemented, and camping will still be allowed in designated campsites. A slow transition of amenities such as picnic tables, fire rings, and lantern posts will be removed over time as they become unusable or unsafe. Trash services will be managed by the user as “pack it in, pack it out.” Active partner groups and volunteers are helping extend the life of current amenities, excluding trash services. Several volunteer workdays have been hosted at this site in the last several months, which have proven to be immensely beneficial to keeping this primitive area operational. Please note, this area is subject to flash flooding and visitors are responsible for monitoring conditions and taking precautionary measures. Removal of the gate does not indicate the area is always safe during changing weather conditions. Surrounded by a beautiful mature hardwood forest, this campground is located on a small mountain stream with picturesque falls, rocks, and a bluff. Big Piney Wild and Scenic River are nearby. There is an accessible trail to the Haw Creek Falls. Camping - 9 family units. Camping trailers are allowed but no special facilities are available. Access to the Ozark Highlands Trail. The recreation area is closed following the 3rd week of December and reopens the 3rd week of March. Please note that the campground is closed when heavy rain is forecast.
