We enjoyed this campground so much we stayed another day. Very dog friendly, very open feel, and friendly helpful staff, and convenient location. In contrast to the previous reviewer there was no fear, no bad smells, but just a relaxing stay. The only negative was the road noise.
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.
This is a small, new, state park in east central Arkansas. Very private, somewhat isolated, all sites on lake front, with reported good fishing and a swimming area. A wonderful place to just get away and relax. We have gone twice and plan on returning. In spite of the name, the park is not on the Mississippi river.
This is my favorite campground in my favorite vacation state. The sites are large, private, with great views of the Taos mountains to the east and Rio Grande valley to the west. Staff are friendly, park is pet friendly with a mile long walking trail. We has visited 4 times in 8 years and plan on returning in the future.
