Loved our stay, although some rain kept us in the camper playing cards! We had a lakeside site, #75, right by the Mulberry Tree, which was full of ripening fruit. In the tree we watched red-headed woodpeckers, bluejays, mockingbirds, orioles, and fletchers feeding. Plus the squirrels. They all learned to hang upside down to feed. Great entertainment. Fishing was not so great, and no one else caught much either. We camped at Lake Charles State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Great trails. Great kayaking. Great fishing most times, but not this week (weather was to blame I think). Really pleasant campground and lots of room to walk dogs.

This is a nice park to come and visit. Most sites have level pads for campers. They do have a loop that does have full hook ups and several of them are right on the lake. Lot's of birds and squirrels to watch through out the day. Great place to camp until the mosquitoes come out. We camped at Lake Charles State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Great stay... day after Christmas we were the only ones here. I had a reenactment keelboat trip down the Black River for three days and set up wife here to retrieve me at Jacksonport after my trip. Lake is drawn down during winter months to flood Shirey Bay for duck season, so fishing not good now. But a great fishing lake rest of year. 2nd stay this year as it is 1 hour plus to kids in Jonesboro. We camped at Lake Charles State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Powhatan State Park just down the road is a great history lesson. Worth a visit. Closed on Mondays I think. Davidsonville just 35 miles north also a great park to explore. We liked the White Oak Trail here at Lake Charles. Was a good strenuous bike trail... my exercise two days.

Three campgrounds. One is full hook ups. The other 2 need upgrades, It seems there are some in progress. Beautiful scenery. Country settings. The highway truck traffic can be heard, but not inside your RV. Highly recommend! We camped at Lake Charles State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Stayed here first time, great park. Several areas, we chose the area with sewer. With our discount, $24 for weekends, $16 for weekdays. Other areas cheaper with water/elec. Our site was perfect, lakeview, and lakeside sites are wonderful with big picnic patios. Good trails, good sites, easy access. Fishing was good. Space between sites was good. We camped at Lake Charles State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This heavily forested park is reached by a five mile drive along the Black River in the Ozarks. There is no parking at the entrance check-in for large rigs, well anything over ten feet and/or pulling a trailer. The staff are friendly and helpful. The park is well maintained and all sites look easy to get in to. Our site was 99% level, spacious with best views. We camped at Lake Charles State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

The camp staff were helpful with directions and recommendations to nearby attractions. The town of Pocahontas is small but busy. For those interested, the historic Catholic Church is a must see. Ask the staff for dining recommendations. Fishing main attraction at the park. Driving countryside is an adventure.

Overall Rating:

We've stayed here three times and although it's a pretty campground, getting there is challenging. The road from Black Rock to Powhaten and then on to the park is narrow, winding and rough. The roads within the park are also fairly narrow. The sites are well spaced and most are long enough for almost any rig. The concrete pads are in rough condition and few of them are very level but each site has a fire ring, table and grill. Our surge protector system disconnected us a couple of times, first time in a long time, so their 50 amp service in the site (#81) we were in had a problem. The views from the sites in the E loop of the lake are great and I'm sure this is a nice place to be in the summer. We camped at Lake Charles State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

I am here now after extending my 2 day stay to 4 days. With AR senior discount price is $21 weekends, 14 weekdays. My location is on the lake: much space between campsites, long dog walks, very quiet and peaceful. Park rangers are helpful and friendly. This is a very good place to get away, bird watch, fish, or do nothing. We camped at Lake Charles State Park in a Motorhome.

Just an overnight stay. Had a site right on the water, which was electric and water only. Was a large, shaded site with 30 amp. Only 1 good TV channel with antenna. It was a little hard to level. We camped at Lake Charles State Park in a Motorhome.
