Nice little park

We stayed here over Veteran's Day weekend and had a pretty good time. We camped in site 54 which the website listed as a 45ft pad, but it was pretty difficult getting our 32ft camper in there. Only complaints would be- it was a small campsite, not alot of room around the firepit, and the only trash dumpster were at the dump station. Besides that, it was a nice park with a swimming area, playground, and walking trails.

Pretty State Park, Hard to Get to

This was a pretty, uncrowded state park in Arkansas. Nice small pond with a good walking trail around it.  The park was hard to get to, narrow/windy roads. I enjoyed my stay there and its great if its on your way from point A to point B.

Words Can't Describe

Absolutely breathtaking! A must see for the family!!

Nice Little Park

This is a pretty park with a man-made pond and surrounded by pretty natural setting. The roads into this area are narrow, winding and have no shoulder. Not the best for an old Class A, but worth the trip.

We were generally disappointed by the Rangers. The showers in two of the three site loops were closed because they did not have enough staff even though the campground was completely full. The Ranger said the Nature Center was also closed, but they plan on tearing it down anyway. The swim area and the kayak and canoe rentals were closed (again because they did not have enough staff sitting around doing nothing).

It hopefully will be a great park to visit in 2021.

Great Hiking

Favorite hiking area. This campground makes for a great stop on a long hike or starting point for a round trip hike. 

Very primitive, nicely shaded, but no cell service. Swimming/wading in water next to several sites and main trail connects to 50+ mile trail network.

Somewhat rundown

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.

I love this place

Absolutely stunning in the fall. Great swimming hole. Lot's of waterfall hiking nearby. Primative

Quiet and clean. Needs water hookup

Great place and so pretty. No water or sewer hook up. I can deal without sewer but need that water. Place was clean and nicely spread out. The beach was awesome and quiet.

Camping on the Little Red River

Really enjoyed the cool temperatures by the river in the heat of the summer. We had a great site by the river!

Site in the woods

Reserved late and got a spot in the back. Thought it wasn’t going to be great but it turned out awesome. The campsite is busy but there is plenty of space to yourself. I would recommend it over other sites on the lake.
