Exploring the hidden road

This section of the National Forest offers two hours gravel road through the forest. Please do your homework because the road signs are lacking. Word of advice, best to stay away during hunting season as we spotted over ten deer hunters in the area in a single day; a hunting paradise as well. On the path offers hidden creek waterfalls, lots of one way bridge and a serenity drive.

Amazing campground! You have to book through their website!

I saw the reviewer that claims that they could not find the campground. You have to book your stay at this private campground through their website. They will then give you very detailed directions to their private property. It is one of the most beautiful spots in Arkansas. Highly recommend.

Loved this Park!

This has to be one of my favorite campgrounds. So scenic and beautiful (even in November). Lots of trails to explore, a visitor's center, during non-pandemic times they have a swimming pool, store, and restaurant by the little lake. Love all the CCC history! The cleanest shower house I've been to in quite some time. We stayed in Camp loop A, basic sites. We were right by Lee Creek, so we enjoyed "babbling brook" sounds all night! The spots are spacious and well-shaded, and offer a level gravel tent pad at each site. The ONLY suggestion I can make is to bring a small shovel to clean out the fire rings, because ours looked like it hadn't been cleaned all season. Six inches of wet ash isn't conducive for building a nice campfire.

Beautiful Site on Beautiful Creek

Long Pool campground is top notch!! Very nice large sites that have great beefy tables and large fire grates. Our campsite site was backed up to Big Piney Creek which was beautiful. Not much for local hikes with out doing research ahead of time.

Camping with history

This wasn’t the first visit to Devil’s Den but it was the first time camping there. The campsites in the basic loop are well positioned and spacious. The shower house is probably the nicest and cleanest one we’ve come across this year. If you are looking to disconnect from the modern world, then this is the place. No WiFi or cell service in the campsite but there is free WiFi up the road at the visitor center. The visitor center is staffed by very knowledgeable and friendly staff. They sell everything from snacks, patches, t shirts to firewood. The many trails are clearly marked and range in distance from a quarter mile to fifteen miles. The trails are easy to moderate, with some amazing sites along the way. The park was built in the 1930s by the CCC and many of the structures are still in use today. You can also see evidence of the lifestyle these young men had while building the park. This is one campground we will definitely be returning to in the future.

Perfect Getaway

We bought our first camper this year and have loved staying at Devil's Den. We made 4 trips there and enjoyed each one. The RV sites have full hookups and most are well shaded. There's easy access to Lee Creek and trails that lead from the campground around to the dam, pool and gift shop.

They also have a horse camp, tent camping, cabins and camper cabins. Whether you're looking to relax or explore one of the many hiking trails, there's something for everyone!

Primative but picturesque

Wile this is a campsite in the realest sense of the word, it is a great intro to dispersed camping. There are camp spots but limited facilities. Very nice

On top of the mountain

Passing through on our way Petit Jean. Amazing views. Camp grounds were full of RVs but very peaceful and clean.

Top of the Mountain

Great campsites right on the edge of the mountain. Wonderful showers at the bathhouse. Sites are fairly close together it's wonderful with the views of the city. Delightful place to stay for a night.

Wrong location / or doesn’t exist

We could not find this place! There were signs pointing to it for a few miles and then NOTHING. We were very disappointed.
