This wasn’t our first choice, but it ended up being great! Just north of Jasper there’s a dirt road to the left that you take. The campground is just a loop with open space in the middle. Most spots are in the trees so it’s great for seclusion and hammocks. Each spot has a fire pit and picnic table. Bathrooms available. It doesn’t fill up quickly. The Buffalo River runs right along the campground and the Buffalo River Trail goes through it. The campground host was very friendly and helpful!

Stopped while doing the Scenic 7 road tour for fall colors, well worth the drive down the windy gravel road, best for tents, can hike in as part of a multi-day hike, this is one of many campground for that activity. Not recommended for large campers or motor homes. Have cash to pay fee host does not give change.
Star gazing park, meaning park does not light up during night, if they do they are yellow lights not bright but there, flush toilets and a pavilion, fire pits.
They give discount for senior and disabled america beautiful pass.
Me and my friends chose this campground very last minute. Its a loose dirt road on the way in and out so prepare! If you are wanting private campgrounds with trees, this is not your spot. The camp sites are far enough distance from eachother though. There’s a cool trail that leads to the river. We enjoyed it over all. :)
We stayed a couple of nights this weekend. It was busy due to the holiday, but we managed to get a great spot. The bathrooms were clean and the grounds were kept well. I'll definitely be coming back.
We enjoyed camping here. We came for Memorial Day weekend and the campground was very busy, but quiet hours seemed to be honored. Some of the campsites are walk-in while some are drive-in. Picnic tables and lantern hooks at every site, nice clean working bathrooms, dumpster, and even a volleyball net. The campsite encircles a large field in the center which some people used to play ball, frisbee etc. many of the sites are not very secluded; you could easily be sleeping right next to another tent. RVs are allowed. There is a quick trail leading to the river - if you camp near this, be aware that people will be going up and down it all day and loading/unloading canoes and kayaks. Fees are $20/night and the campground is patrolled frequently by a park ranger (he was very nice). Lots of dogs!
