Drive through the campground and park at the waterfall parking lot. If you're in a hurry, take the left hand turn at the "T" Intersection about 100 yards up the trail. This will get you to the waterfall quickly. Beautiful hike and a very pretty...More

I thoroughly enjoyed my visit to this state park. We only went for the day, but I saw many families camping. The park is big and beautiful. It is clean and best of all, we didn’t pay a day fee. We decided to do a...More

This park is just beautiful. Full hookups, paved campsites that are very generous with space. Fire ring, grill and picnic table at each site. We were here the week before Easter and Easter weekend. All kinds of programs daily.

Would be a great park except for the factory/power plant on the far side of the lake. Nice hike to the falls.

My husband and I stayed in one of the cabins over the water. It was what I expected, my version of roughing it... It accommodated what we needed, clean enough to have a place to bathe and sleep. We were looking to spend our time...More

I was so excited to find a Yurt to sleep in on our cross country road trip! It had plenty of room for our group on 8! The kids had a blast. Plenty of room & clean.

You can check availability and pricing and reserve online at the state parks website. Links aren't allowed here, but Google Arkansas State Parks.
