We had a lovely time tent camping at Lake Ouachita. It was a last minute Memorial Day weekend plan, so there wasn't much research before hand. The campsites were walk up, which was mildly inconvenient at first, but ultimately a big plus with no vehicles driving by the actual sites.
The park is pet friendly as long as they're leashed, and alcohol is allowed in moderation.
The campsites are on a small peninsula, so every site was right on the water. Being so close to the water kept the temperature comfortable, and having direct access to the lake was perfect for swimming. Ducks and geese also made appearances that thrilled the kids.
There were a few communal water spots located in the tent area. The bathrooms and trashcans were a bit of a walk, and shared with the RV sites.
The sites were pretty close to each other, and some people might not prefer that. There was a family reunion happening while we were there, so that feature was pretty convenient for them.
We brought tiki torches but were unable to use them due to the gravel terrain.
All in all, the sites were clean and comfortable and other guests were respectful. I recommend this park, and will definitely return.
