A quite park with tall pines mixed with some hardwood. The full hookup loop has paved pull throughs. Some sites are tight due to the close proximity of large pine trees. In addition, some sites are not level nor smooth, i.e. the roots of the pine trees have grown under the paving causing bumps in the paving. The lake is very nice. We rented a paddle boat and a canoe. You can fish without a license. There is a trail around the lake.

A small campground located on Cameron Bluff. The sites were level and the campsites were very well laid out. The trailer pad was asphalt, with the balance of the site limestone. Easy access to trails from the campground. A walk of 1/4 mile will take you to a scenic overlook. The park has many rocky outcroppings offering long views of the Arkansas River valley. It is a moderately steep pull for several miles up the mountain to the park.

The campground has three loops in a wooded setting. The access roads are paved as well as the sites. Leveling is required at the site. For a large campground, it was quiet. Plenty of shade, birds, and deer. The fee is $18 plus tax which brings the nightly total to $19.80. We would like to return in the future.

This park is nestled in the Boston Mountains along Lee Creek. The campground has paved roads and sites. Loop E has 44 full hookups. We spent a week there and noted that the park is full on the weekends, but lightly used during the week. Great trails to caves, crevices, and rocky outcroppings.

We use this park regularly, especially during the late fall, winter, and early spring. The campground is heavily wooded with good paved roads and sites. The park is located north of Memphis with easy access to city. There is a trailhead at the campground for the Woodland Trail, which is a loop into the forest. Insects can be bothersome during the summer, as the park is situated along the Mississippi River. In fact the park has a boat ramp into the river. We always drive down to the ramp and sit on the bank watching for river barges moving up and down the river.

We visited during Easter. We stayed in the Woodpecker Hollow loop in spot 23. The site is an asphalt pull through and did require the use of leveling blocks. Woodpecker Hollow is the full hookup loop. The springtime temperatures were great and no problems with insects at the campground. We went on a hike on the Caddo Forest Trail. We did use insect spray as we entered the forest. The hike was guided by a volunteer (the park host) and we thoroughly enjoyed it.

One of the finest campgrounds my family has visited. The grounds are in top shape, with sites that are full hookup and level. Bring your bike, as there is a paved road (no private vehicles allowed) from the campground to the beach. The beach is natural and undeveloped. There are a few trails through the forest that offer nice views of the dunes, ocean, and freshwater lakes. We spent Thanksgiving week there.

The park is located in a beautiful setting on Crowley's Ridge. We stayed in the full hookup loop where the sites are level and paved. The park staff were very friendly. There are several hiking trails, including one that has a swinging bridge. Fire pits, table and tent pads are at each full hookup site. The park is about an hours drive west of Memphis, TN.
