We spent 3 nights at this park and hated to leave! The people were fantastic! They helped with any questions we had and always had a smile on their faces. Our site was huge! We never saw a neighbor when we were at our camper (site 26). Some of the sites by the river were much closer together, but the view of the river makes up for some of that. We went fishing several times from the shore, which was a small walk from our site. We ended up catching some decent sized Rainbow Trout. You are extremely close to the dam and even took a houseboat out for a couple of hours one day. The park is quiet, other than steady vehicle traffic on the main road that goes to the restaurant, but nothing that you notice while in your camper. We can't wait to go back!

We stayed here in a Motorhome. We camped at Bull Shoals - White River State Park in a Motorhome.

Campsite level and perfect!! Our campfire and table overlooked the river where there were eagles, cranes, and trout fishermen frequently. Directly across was the cleanest park bathrooms with wonderful water pressure and great playground to keep eye on grandson without having to sit there all the time. He could enjoy new friends while I rested in own comfortable chair enjoying views of happy grandson and peaceful river. This is a MUST go to park!! We camped at Bull Shoals - White River State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

We geo cached and found plenty of trails.

1. Gastons visitor center overlooking dam

-Village cave tour

-Bowling at 178 club. "Best burgers around and great dinners too"

-Stop at all the playgrounds, Browns beach, Lakeview dam park Lakeview city park and visit Lakeview core campgrounds "another pretty one" and Gastons playground visit the peacocks at Gastons and watch the planes coming in and taking off, trails down there too

Just go!!! Oh yea!!! Fish fish fish

Beautiful park. Most campsites are within a few feet of the White River and are level. Everything is first class. Plenty of space to maneuver. Staff is very helpful and friendly. Hookups are excellent. Verizon service works great. Lot's of wild life; eagles, deer, turkey, water foul. Good restaurants and shopping in Mountain Home. Perfect place for quiet and rest. Highly recommend. We camped at Bull Shoals - White River State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Be certain to check out Gaston's for food, beverages, and shopping. Plenty of signs for directions and less than 2 miles away.

Our all-time favorite. Stayed here for 9 nights. Beautiful setting. I was worried about proximity of river with two small children, but there was a wall and a long slope down. Variety of places to fish. Immaculate bathrooms, convenient store (where snacks incidentally seemed to be priced with minimal markup). We stayed in a site with full hookups, but many were W/E only. Most sites on the loop with sewer hookup were shaded and wooded. We happened to end up in one without much shade. Riverfront sites more closely spaced, but still didn't seem cramped. It was our first time at this park, and many of our neighbors seemed to know each other and many had been returning for years. Nice sense of camaraderie. Playground was a bit rustic but adequate. Many lovely swings throughout park. Good hiking. We camped at Bull Shoals - White River State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Everything about this park was beautiful. Our site was spacious & grassy with several deer grazing nearby in a meadow surrounded by a forest. Although we were not on the river it was just a few feet away & easy to access. We would definitely come here again. We camped at Bull Shoals - White River State Park in a Motorhome.

Shower water was a little hot and could not be adjusted. Park was very nice and clean. Will find a way to return as we enjoyed the park very much. We camped at Bull Shoals - White River State Park in a Travel Trailer.

State Park with some sites on the river. Depends on the generating schedule from Dam for level of rushing water or trickle. Sites very close together on river side. In July, make reservations as it was packed. Trout Dock has fishing license and sundries. Mountain Bike trail needs to be maintained, fallen logs blocking path. Shady river sites are the choice to make in summer, and there is a delightful cool breeze in evenings coming off the water. Only one dumpster for entire park which was very odoriferous. There are also Rent a RV and Rent a Tent sites dispersed through park. Would return, but choose an off season time. Very crowded in July.

A gem of a campground. May rank in our top three places we have ever stayed. Fantastic site right on the river. Plenty of space. Clean, clean, clean. Common areas are beautiful. Bath houses are new and very clean. Welcome office and shop at trout dock are well staffed and you can get what you need. Natural surroundings are so nice. The river is the main attraction, but there are also several nature trails. There is an upscale resort close by with a nice restaurant, and while it is privately owned, their nature trails are open to the public as well. Bull Shoals Lake offers lake activities just minutes away. One of the nicest and most relaxing times we have ever had. Only, be aware that there is a pump house across the river that makes a constant noise which affects the sites to the east of the trout dock. We will call soon to make our reservation for next year!

This was our first trip to this park and I was a little disappointed compared to other Arkansas State Parks. I didn't camp here for the fishing so that lowers my opinion somewhat. If you desire to be on the river in seconds, than this is the place. First the good: spots were level and the majority of them are within 50 feet of the river. Everything was clean and the staff was very helpful. Next the items that lowered the rating for me: majority of the spots are on top of each other. If you neighbor has a slide open, there is a good chance you may not be able to use your awning. The location of the picnic tables and fire rings are a little confusing. You wonder if the people designing the campground have ever camped. Our picnic table was located on the backside of our camper and the fire ring was less than 2 feet from our camper. I probably could have melted my siding if I used it. Many of the sites are located along a one way lane and people park along both sides. I could see having to chase down people to move cars to get into your site for long rigs. While these are all minor items, it's not something I have seen at the other parks in Arkansas. But they would not keep us from returning. We camped at Bull Shoals - White River State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Stayed in the recently remodeled section which is lovely and flat. All amenities. Could throw a rock in the river from your patio area. Huge sites. Quick walk to the spring. Lots of fishermen. Very pretty although dry this year. Would recommend to anyone. We camped at Bull Shoals - White River State Park in a Motorhome.

Beautiful scenery and beautiful campsites. Very large sites with asphalt drives and concrete parking spots. Most sites have a covered concrete picnic table. Overall, a great 5 night stay!!! We camped at Bull Shoals - White River State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We loved it here. We were on lot 51 right on the river. Next time I will try to get closer to the dockmasters to get the wifi on our site but there was a nice porch to sit on and tap into wifi at the dockmasters. The mist on the river was beautiful to watch. Groceries and restaurants were nearby. If only state parks had cable; my life would be complete. As usual staff was friendly and helpful.

We stayed in #19 June 29 - July 3. This is a beautiful campground with lots of trees. We had to use a dish on a tripod stretched almost to the river to get satellite. The river was 8 to 10 feet higher than normal and the fishermen were out in force. We fished and caught some trout using sweet corn. We were really lucky with the weather - the highs were in the mid 80's and the lows were low 70's. It is very quiet here at night - no loud campers around a campfire. Also, something that was odd (but nice because there was no smell)was that there are no trashcans throughout the park. There is a dumpster area to take your trash. We camped here in a motor home.
