We moved here when the nearby COE campground closed for the season (Oct 31). Campground was 80% full during weekend, but pretty empty during the week. Fall colors were near their peak. Pines loop has 30/20 amp service, while the river loop has 50/30/20 plus water hookups. Fellow campers were courteous. This site is popular with fishermen, who seemed to do well fishing the river for trout. One night, our GPS put us on State Highways 23/187 north out of the city of Eureka Springs. There is a 11-ft 10-inch clearance single-lane wooden-bridge on this route with a 10T load-limit. State Hwy 187 southwest of US62 is just fine for big rigs. Our Verizon voice and MiFi service worked well enough at the river loop (site #10), but a camper had just moved out of the Pine Loop because of problems with cell coverage and tree canopies blocking satellite TV view. We would gladly return here. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed in the pines loop. Very quiet. Campsites spaced far enough apart. Lots of trees and shade, but no issues driving through with the motorhome. Good fishing in the river but really tough to walk down to the river. They had steps, but it's steep and winding and a little dangerous, so be very careful. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The park itself was very pretty, the site we were in had full shade, which was very welcome in the heat, but the description of a river site is somewhat misleading. The river is 100 feet behind you, but you cannot access it or see it, due to the thick underbrush between it and your camper. I was disappointed we couldn't share the river's cool temperature. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed in the pines loop, and we always love staying here. It is such a beautiful and peaceful setting. No road traffic noise, and each campsite is nestled in the trees. Many sites have a river view. The sites are not close together so you feel like you have room to move. They have a nice playground for the kids and a wonderful newer modern restroom with showers. It has an easy walk behind some of the campsites to trout fish, and it's a safe place for kids to ride their bikes. The ONLY inconvenience was having to save your trash to dispose of in a different loop of the park. We highly recommend it if you want a beautiful and quiet campground. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Park has very nice shaded spots with lots of area between sites. Restrooms and showers are a combo: one person which is fine except there's no place to put clothes and a towel without getting them wet. Corps designers are not RV'ers. The water is clear and very beautiful. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a beautiful lake with clear water and this campground has potential to be fabulous. However, there are no flush toilets available at all. Or water hook-ups. The showers are inadequate and small. The sites are spacious and nicely paved with covered picnic tables. But the lack of flush toilets is a really bummer. We won't camp here. We will motel in Eureka Springs. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
