The entire park is dirt/gravel, which makes it very dirty. The road is supposed to be one-way with a 5mph speed, but nobody seemed to obey this (direction or speed). There were people staying there long-term (1 month) and I think people that live there full time as well. People seemed friendly. We paid for 5 nights, but left after 1. We asked for a refund, they were hesitant. We arrived July 4th, which was a Wednesday this year. They tried to say we don’t normally do refunds on a holiday weekend. Helllloooo: it is the middle of the week, not a weekend. My husband is in a wheelchair. He went most of the way down the road to the boat dock in his electric wheelchair and got stuck and could not get back up, so we told them the park is not friendly for him, and they refunded us a couple of nights. We were fine with that, and moved about a mile up the road to another Campground. (You can read my post about them on this site as well.) The nice thing about this park is the pool. We did not actually visit it, but it was hot out, and a lot of people were using it. They also have some cabins, (that is what they called them, but looked more like mini-apartments to me) for rent. They are right by the pool. Each one had a patio that overlooked the pool. From their map, they have other cabins and cottages, but I did not explore the park and see them. They had a laundry facility, but we did not visit that. There are also hot showers available, but we did not use those. Our site was # 3. It had some shade, and our slide-outs and awnings were actually into the tree branches. We are 43’ and were pulling a trailer, and we were barely able to fit into the spot without disconnecting. At the end of the one-way, where you turn to go the opposite direction to pull into your site, it is very tight. He told me in the office, "You will have to swing real wide." We had to swing as wide as possible but not hit other vehicles and children’s bikes, and then back up a little, turn the wheel, and complete the turn. And then there was a truck pulling a boat coming towards us, as well as another car, and the car looked at us like we were in the wrong! There are no scenic views from this park; it is in the middle of the forest/woods. They do have a store inside the office with some provisions, but no fresh food, just snacks/toiletries/camp items. This park is far from any thing, so come with plenty of groceries and any other provisions. The closest grocery store (Harps) is about 10 miles, but that is about 25 minutes. The roads are very windy and it takes a long time to get anywhere. The closest restaurants are about 6 – 7 miles and about 20 minutes. Corona (Seafood & Mexican) is okay. Sam’s Olde Tyme Hamburgers was good, great chicken friend steak! The water on the lake is very clean and clear. Great place to boat, jet ski, and play in the water, but not accessible from this park. The guy told me they are waterfront, but you have to go down a very long, steep dirt road to get to the water, which consists of a boat dock for about 6 or 7 vessels. The water is very low right now, so you have to walk on some rocks to get to it. We won’t be back here, unless they do something to improve the dirt/dust/roads. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here for the 2011 BBB rally. The cons of the park are that it is difficult to find, even with a GPS (may have been user error), the road to the park is winding for pulling an RV, the restrooms are not clean and kept running out of toilet paper, and there are not that many trees. Pros are the very friendly staff, the winding road was fun and nice on a motorcycle, the park is quite, and it is a short walk to a beautiful view of the lake! I would say we enjoyed it the most because there were a lot of nice roads to ride the motorcycle on around this campground, without having to go into Fayetteville. We will stay somewhere else for the rally next year but we did enjoy our stay here. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
I arrived at night so picked my own spot which was level. Looked like most of the RVs were permanents. Area well kept where we were parked but around the office there was a lot of trash and old rigs stuffed with junk. Otherwise agree with the previous reviews. Unless I was there for fishing I probably wouldn't make the drive to get to it. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Highway to campground is hilly, curvy and narrow. Campground is not very well maintained. Sites are gravel/grass and there seems to be a good number of seasonal/permanent campers. Owners were friendly and helpful, but because of the condition of the campground and the access road, we would not camp here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We were charged for full hookup but when we went to use the sewer it would flow onto the ground. Told the manager this and he said "We will look into it." Looked like most of the people there were permanent residents. Would NEVER recommend this to anyone or ever go back there. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

A quiet campground with a great location near Beaver Lake. The fishing is great and the staff was knowledgeable and courteous. We will be back. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Out of the way and off the beaten track - the 14-mile road in is twisty, hilly and a slow trek. Campground is clean. Combo asphalt and gravel road. Sites are level, although mostly a mixture of gravel and grass. Excellent friendly owners and staff. One draw back is the distance to Rogers shopping, traversing the 14-mile road every time you leave the park. Close to Eureka Springs, Bentonville and even Branson, MO for day trips. We camped here in a Motorhome.
