Located on Lake Catherine in Hot Springs, AR. This privately owned campground has it all: level paved camping pads, 30/50 amp electrical hookups, sewer, cable, picnic tables, fire rings and grilling stations. Several sites are located right on the waterfront of Lake Catherine. They have some of the nicest showers/bathrooms I’ve ever seen in a park! Lake access, water toy rentals, swimming pool, and a zip line! Easy access to downtown Hot Springs. Not many mature trees and campsites are close, but large size to accommodate any sized rigs. We enjoyed our stay there.
We and our camping buddies made reservations to stay in this popular park for 6 nights but the only pr was we couldn’t reserve any site for more than two days meaning we would be moving sites constantly during the week. The dirt road arriving to Ohaver lake is certainly one to proceed slowly on. As you climb the mtn the last mile or so you are greeted with numerous washboards on the switchbacks but don’t worry, It’s worth it! When we arrived we noticed that two walk ups had just pulled out, 4 and 5. The friendly camp host allowed us to occupy those side by side sites which meant no moving for the rest of our stay! We enjoyed nice daytime temperatures in the mid 60’s and nighttime temperatures right around 50. And NO humidity! Wow that was great for some Arkansans! Though not on the lake, we found our sites were wonderful! This park is popular! Lots of activity and action on the lake from fishing to kayaking to swimming ( brrr) to sunbathing. We hiked around the lake and enjoyed the beauty of the area. No ATT cell service and no tv access so really enjoyed the down time! On the way out, at the visitors center located at Poncha Springs is a dump station with non potable water for $10 credit/debit card and potable water available at the next building. Thank you Poncha Springs!
We and our camping partners snagged the last two reservable sites available on short notice at this quiet, no frills campground and loved the stay. Level campsites with tables and fire pits. We were located right across from the vaulted toilets which were clean, sanitary and odorless. The campground is adjacent to the Rio Grand River and several campsites back right up to the river. We enjoyed our short stay there and as a bonus, Creede, just up the road about 6 miles has a dump station with potable water for a donation fee! The dump station is located about 1/4 mile from the visitors center, same side of road, going back towards the campground down a gravel road about 400 yards. Next time I’m going fishing!
Stayed on #30. Located right across from the swim beach. While it rained several days, the site did have a paved pad, electricity and water. Normal cost is $22 a night but with National Parks Senior Pass the cost was only $11 per night! What a deal! Only negative was grass needed mowing!
Nice park located on the Arkansss River with river access and lots of campsites. Sites are level with water and electricity and picnic tables and fire rings. Restrooms and showers.
Great Corp of Engineers Park tucked in the trees south of Lake Dardanelle. Paved level sites with water and electricity and clean bathrooms. Nice fishing available.
Enjoyed our stay at Daisy State Park on Lake Greeson. There are a few sites with full hookups but we chose one close to the water with water and electricity. The site was paved and level and shaded most of the day.
Level sites, full hookups, right on the White River and fun trout fishing!
