Lost Bridge North COE, Garfield, Arkansas

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $10.00
Overall Rating:      

This campground is a jewel. It combines refreshing shade and amazing waterfront views. But not together. The main campgrounds feature 6 sites at the NW end with knock-dead gorgeous views down Beaver Lake. But they have little shade from the summer sun (6 is an exception), though they are fitted with veraranda like pads with balustrades over the water. The rest of the lakeview sites are on terraced levels above those six, with lots of shade from big elms and oaks. While the map would suggest that they are somewhat crowded, the trees and the different levels make them very private and nonobtrusive to each other. Two strategically placed toilet faciities serve the whole area within an easy stroll. Showers, however, clean and hot as they are, reside up a steep, long climb up the hill. The breezes are from the SW, so the hillside causes them to be light and variable, but the shade makes up for it. ATT cellphone and internet access are tentative, but if you hold the device right for long enough they will function. Numerous fresh water faucets spot the area, but most require a very long hose or a stop in the middle of the narrow road for a tank fillup. A faucet at the dump station just outside the gate has the best access. Ice, drinks, sundries are available at the adjoining marina at the usual convenience markup. Across the road from the entry hut is a separate set of sites in a heavily wooded area with no water views but set up so no one feels spied upon. A toilet faciity there is easily accessible by all sites. The shower is across the road. The entire complex is neat, tidy, and well kept. We camped at Lost Bridge North COE in a Travel Trailer.

Hickory Creek Park COE, Lowell, Arkansas

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

The park is delightful. The gate attendant even remembered our names. First loops have lake cove views, some actually on the shore, for splashes and waders. There sits the small but well equipped playground. The last loop has completely shaded spots with view of open lake. Separated by trees and shrubs, that loop's spots are closer together, but are wide and complete with picnic tables and fire rings. Prevailing breeze is from the SW, so virtually all the sites benefit from its refreshing affects. Fresh water refill faucets available at several sites, including the dump station. Clean, tidy, picturesque, and understandably heavily utilized on summer weekends, so reservations are a good idea. We camped at Hickory Creek Park COE in a Travel Trailer.
