Tompkins Bend campground on Lake Ouachita was the perfect place for early summer family camping. Every site had a lake view and most are right on the water. Our site was not level but not terribly off either. The sites are wooded, with paved pads and are very large and spacious. The bathhouse was in good condition. The women’s showers had hot water and great water pressure, but the men’s showers did not have quite as good water pressure or warmth. There are several great trails nearby, including Lake Ouachita Vista trail system- great for hiking and mountain biking. The playground was great, but unfortunately a pretty long walk from the campsites. We spotted several deer on our walks around the campground as well as blue herons, ducks and geese on the water. From what we could see, it also seemed a very popular fishing area. The peace, beauty and spaciousness of the sites more than made up for any minor inconveniences.
