Old Highway 25 Campground is located on Greers Ferry Lake in the beautiful Ozark Mountains of north-central Arkansas. The environment provides the ideal location for family camping, fishing, boating and hiking.
Greers Ferry Lake is an outdoor enthusiasts' dream, with boating, sailing, water skiing, swimming, scuba diving and excellent fishing opportunities.
The William Carl Gardner Visitor Center is just west of the dam, with exhibits, a children's touch table, and a replica of the world record 40 lb. 4 oz. brown trout caught in the Little Red River downstream of the center.
Hikers can enjoy two award-winning national nature trails located near the visitors center. Mossy Bluff extends along a tree-covered bluff overlooking the Little Red River, immediately below the dam. It ends almost one mile away at a rustic shelter, which offers a panoramic view of the river and dam.
Nearby is Buckeye Trail, a short barrier-free, paved pathway designed for the physically challenged. Guide maps for both trails are available at the center.
This campground offers 120 family sites, 84 of which have electrical hookups. One large non-electric group campsite is available as well. Additional amenities include flush and vault toilets, showers, a dump station, picnic shelter, swimming beach and a boat ramp.
A dense mix of red cedar, black gum, red oak, elm, pecan and sweet gum trees forest the area, providing shade in the summer months and beautiful fall colors in autumn.
Wildlife is plentiful around Greers Ferry Lake. Visitors commonly see white-tailed deer, wild turkeys, rabbits, squirrels and a wide variety of birds.
The Greers Ferry National Fish Hatchery, in Heber Springs, located below the dam, offers free tours. Built in 1965, the hatchery produces about one million rainbow trout a year for restocking the Little Red and other Arkansas streams.

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.
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.
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.
Been camping here since I was a young boy. Secluded, quiet, family friendly. Good bank fishing at night for flathead catfish 👍🏼
