  • The campground is small, but such a beautiful view! There is some highway noise but we just ran a small fan at night so we wouldn’t have to hear it. The bathrooms are completely disgusting. Avoid...  more »

  • Stay here quite a bit when coming through town. There is always a hot shower and clean bathroom every time. The folks who take care of the park are friendly and care about the facility and have been for years. Great trails all around this place as well.
  • Well maintained facilities, friendly rangers, nice tent sites. Went out to hike part of the Ouachita Trail and were able to leave our vehicle in the parking lot. The bathrooms had a shower and were much cleaner than we excepted which was very welcome after three days of hiking. The trail is gorgeous although we would have like to know there was a boulder field! Great weekend and will definitely be returning.
