Pretty nice but limited

Typical COE camp ground.. lacking full hookups and water at each site. The lower sites are waterfront but lack water and septic at the sites. There are a very limited number of larger RV sites .. the upper area sites are all smaller and again no water at the sites and no septic. There are restrooms near the sites but the shower house is all the way back at the entrance. There are 2 boat ramps and a swimming area. Th evilest are pretty special. The marina is ok but the management is meh. No rentals and the ship store is very limited. The best yet choice is the Hide A Way camp ground store or a store on highway 12.

Great summer get away

This camp ground is pretty decent as a Destination and is close to Rocky Branch park and boat launch. There is a store and swimming pool and they have a laundry and shower house. Sites are good size and can handle large RV busses . There are plenty of small camper and tent sites.

Not a destination park

This park is a permanent resident park.. not ver spacious or inviting. There are much better places to camp in the area.

Overland weekend fun

Facility is what you would expect for an outdoor adventure facility. The sites are very spacious on the RV area, the smaller camper and primitive sites are very generous as well. The store is well stocked an has ice cream and fresh foods. The restaurant is pretty awesome as well. Food is YUM! They have their own off-road trails or you can venture out into the Ozark National Forrest trails. Also there are 2 grass runways for STOL or short take off aircraft. This place has a lot to offer for a lot of different recreational verticals.

Easy place to stay

It a destination park but it is convenient to Wichita and is great as a overnight stop. We’ve been here 2 times and have had great service from the staff and it’s always easy to book.

Great place to spend a day or 2

We stopped here on a last minute reservation.. staff helped us from start to finish to make our stay a good one.. Our site had a patio and lawn furniture.. plenty of space. Royal Gorge is a fun attraction and if you venture out there are other attractions during season. We did drive the Skyline Drive road.. kinda fun. The Covid scare had a lot of normal activities muted but I suspect next year will be back to full activities in the area. The store is well stocked and the showers are very clean. Propane on site if needed

Great last minute choice

Not very large but fees very homely.. sites are good sized and can handle bigger rigs. Free WiFi and Cable. Not to bad for the $45 we paid.. close to Moab and very UTV friendly.. trails start just down the street. So many places to visit just a short drive away! Lots of night and day time wildlife visitors.

Beautiful area close to fun

We chose to stay here while many other camp grounds were full.. not a bad choice, the only drawback is no sewer connect just a sewer dump.. so staying here for and extended time may be a little inconvenient. The area is fantastic, very close to Needle Rock monument and we have driven south to Gunnison and east to Carbondale and Marble. We trail drove Kebler Pass and went over to Lead Basin and Schofield Pass.. easy drive from here. Also, the local farmers markets and Vineyards in Paolia are awesome to visit, fresh apples and honey and pretty good wines! We are here in late Sept thru early Oct. definitely a beautiful time.. the only thing bad about this entire CO trip has been they are in a prolonged drought and the rivers, lakes and reservoirs are all very low. Overall we are very pleased with the facility and staff.

Almost perfect..

Loved the site and the location.. easy access to Rifle Falls and the surrounding trails and climbing walls.. close to access for UTV and off-road vehicle areas as well. The remote area does not have cell service and there is no WiFi in the park. If you are trying to remote work it would be difficult. At the time of this review (09/22/2020) the lake was down over 30ft and was basically not useable except for some fishing. Overall we had a great experience here.

Second time here and we’ll be back again..

This has been a very good 3/4 of the way stop for us when heading to CO and UT.. we have the same site we had last time.. supper nice people and easy access.. Walmart is next door and there is food close by if your looking for an easy meal..

Great place to go off road riding. Fun olace

This is a Off-road park that has cabins and other camping options.  Not a quiet place but for those looking to ride or enjoy some off-road fun this is a good place to play!  There are some hiking trails where you can ride them hike..

Great location for outdoor fun

Near the Mulberry River and White Rock recreation area, the facility is an off road enthusiasts playground! Trails directly into the outback from the facility. Plants of space to stretch out and enjoy the deep Forrest areas of Arkansas

Very small on the river

Neat little cap ground on the river .. cool little town with good food .. ver close to Eureka Springs not a good access  site for large vehicles

Great little gem of a camp site

We were completely surprised at the accommodations. Sites in some of the facility are a little smaller and many others are very good sized, make sure to ask. Pretty level sites once you get squared away. Very hospitable staff!

Great site now!

This campground has gone through an extensive renovation this year and has bigger and more accessible sites. The water sites are all “on the water”! Very easy to get a bigger rig into these sites.. not the easiest drive to get here but worth the effort! The island sites are by far the best but the new shore side sites are great for smaller campers or tents. One of our favorite campgrounds in Beaver Lake.

Nice small camp site

One of the better sites on Beaver Lake with a small number of sites, the access to the water is easy and the sites are fair sized. It is on the better end of the lake where the water is clearer and better for activities.. always a fun place to stay.. always busy though, so plan ahead. This campground is close to Starkey, Castle Cove, Hogscald Cove, Penitentiary Cove falls and Beaver Dam.

Beautiful location

We visited here in August, of course with the COvid-19 scare everyone was cautious. The sites are tight but most are very level and have full hookups.. the sites at beach side do lot have full hookups and you pay a premium for the site but also have to pay again to have your sewer pumped out.. the sites just at the top of the beach sites have a great view but no trees or shade.. the sites beyond the pool and activity center have trees and shade.. short walk to the beach.. the staff is nice but firm on rules, maybe a little over zealous due to the congested space. Don’t park your golf cart in the wrong spot! I would suggest a less congested time to visit. Early Spring or late Summer/fall.

Not our favorite but friendly

Site is very remote with little access to any stores or fuel.  It is located on a hill to that is very rocky and not very level.. our 38ft RV has a hard time leveling as the camp sites are not very level to begin with.  Access to the Ouachita National Forrest is 20 miles or so away.. we took the Jeep back reading for a couple of days.. beautiful area and plenty to see .. Access to the COE camp sites and launch ramp is close by.  The owners are very nice and seem to be working on upgrades and fixing some issues.  Overall we probably won’t make this a destination for us again.

Biggest of the COE Sites on Beaver Lake

This site is the largest most spacious COE Site on Beaver Lake.  Very large camp sites with easy access to the water.. 2 launch ramps for boats, marina on site.  Good access to town and great food at Monte Ne Inn .. newly remodeled sites along the waters edge as well.

Very nice and very open

Site is the largest on Beaver Lake, plenty of room for large vehicles or trailers .. 2 launch ramps for boats.  Close to a Rogers and close to great food. Be sure to check the power capabilities and most sites may not have sewer . Overall beautiful facility.
