This is one of our favorite ‘close to home’ campsites. It’s about an hour out of Northwest Arkansas.
All of the trails are very nice to hike, even for our little ones.
FYI there is no AT&T signal at the campsite. If you need signal you can get it at the visitor center and on most of the trails we hiked.
We stayed in a Monday night in early November and there were only two other groups in the tent loop. The TV loop seemed a little busier. The shower house is right next to the RV loop and a bit of a walk from the tents. We had a picnic table and fire ring. The campground is not far from a busy road so we had some noise. Conveniently located near a large town in Arkansas for supplies and good cell signal. We did the short hike to the falls and they were gorgeous. $16 for the night.
Busy little older park on a lovely lake near Eureka Springs, AR. Great birdwatching opportunities, nice hiking trails. Mostly tent camping, some with electric. Sites lower and closer to the lake subject to flooding and can get quite boggy after a lot of rain. Reservations must be made via Reserve America, and you'll need to look at the map to get the site number since only a few sites have identifiers. Drive into the park is very beautiful, hilly and curvy!
This is a great campground. As with pretty much all KOAs there is a decent store, good customer service, a playground, a pool, etc. the bathrooms/showers were clean. We had a pull through site. There was a walking trail on property as well. Eureka Springs is a interesting little town with good restaurants and entertainment. Make sure to take the ghost tour at the hotel in town! The Onyx cave was pretty cool, but a bit overpriced. The only downside of this was the KOA had our reservation wrong and forced us to check out a day early. Make sure you confirm dates multiple times when booking by phone.
We drove 4 hours to this site and was told that our 25’ camper did not hit their 30’ minimum. No where on there site did we see that there was a minimum size requirement. They told us we had to leave I asked them if they could recommend or help us find an alternative location their response was to “drive around “ to find another location they couldn’t help. Very rude took them over a 2 weeks to refund our deposit.
Looked like a nice place too bad they were so rude I would not recommend them to anyone even if you rig is 30+
We camped here in the fall and were pleasantly surprised with all the pecans we gathered. It's secluded and quiet with views of the Grand River and Neosho River. Wheelchair Friendly. Roads were paved. If you gold a golf course is just down the street. We walked up to the golf course and stopped for a snack on the way to check out the more primitive campsite across the bridge.
There are 50 amp full hook up pullthroughs. We woke up to deer out our window. No playground but great nature walks around the area.
The only reason I gave this a 3 star is because there is really no amenities BUT we love it because is is right by a creek, quiet except for the water fall of the dam which I happen to like. There is a playground. People come to fish (catfish, crappy, large and smallmouth bass, sunfish, spotted bass, wallet, & white bass)and float in the river in the summer. It is shallow enough for kids to splash around in and have fun. For fall camping it’s a nice place to get away and relax. Park is for day use only 11/4/20-4/1/21
If you’re in to baseball there’s a statue of Mickie Mantel across from campground. Spavinaw is where Mickie Mantel was born.
Like BBQ head up the road a little to the town of Spavinaw and have the best most tender BBQ around. We drive up there just for the BBQ.
We stay at spavinaw every June. I've been for 13 years and my husband has gone for 36. It's beautiful. A wonderful place for all ages. There is swimming and fishing and beautiful scenery. It fills up on the weekends over summer but still doesn't feel too crowded. The "waterfall" is probably a favorite for the kids as long as the water is running. You can't beat tradition. We have a family reunion under the pavilion. There's a corner store up the road. The bathrooms are nice, but there aren't any stalls. Just one toilet and one shower. There are electric and primitive sites. It's a nice flowing creek with fairly clear water and a "beach". The rocks are so pretty here. Especially by the water fall.
