ATV/Horse camp

Loop of primitive sites along Hwy 7 providing access to Ozark Highlands Trail. Not much to look at, listen to hwy traffic. Serves it’s purpose

Big Piney Creek access campground

Busy with floaters in the springtime. Tent loop on short bluff along “long pool”. Great swimmin’ hole, shower house for floaters and campers. Great little waterfall in hollow about 1/2 mi up river on creekside trail. Used to be an old high water cable crossing and footbridge (50 yrs ago) only the anchors remain.

great class II-III whitewater floating.

No such animal

See Lake Dardanelle State Park

One for the bucket list!

Arkansas’ first and most popular state park. Lake with rental boats, trailer and tent site loops, lodge/hotel/cabins. Outstanding natural features, some of which are easily accessible. Very popular in the fall. Big waterfall with rugged trail to the bottom. Can’t see it all in a weekend!

Trailer sites next to large day use area

Trailer hookup sites next to C of E boat ramp, adjacent to numerous covered picnic sites and 3 playgrounds. 2 large pavilions for rent. Just below Dardanelle Lock and Dam in Russellville city limits. Adjacent to city soccer complex.

It’s a Corps of Engineers boat ramp

A few campsites by a steep boat ramp on the Arkansas River. Little access to water.

The Caverns tour(s) should be on your bucket list

Nice facilities with 3 campground loops, gravel bottom creek (Sylamore Creek) swim area, small spring fed lake stocked with rainbow trout, but the big draw is the Blanchard Springs Caverns tours. Outstanding! Great place for all ages. If it fills up in peak season, head 6 mi upstream to Sylamore Creek campground.

Nice park-cooler in summer

State park with swimming pool in summer. Playground and swings for young ones. Several hammock friendly sites. Hang gliders frequently use the bluffs to launch. Beautiful views of Arkansas River/Lake Dardanelle.

Campsites are close together with little privacy. Several rental cabins as well.
