Lake and rec area is closed (October 2014). Water levels low. Campground in rough shape and only had 3 campsites ( 1 was host?) Save your time and dont drive out there expecting to be pleased. No cell service for ATT.

I was a young girl and have a very fond memory of a natural rock slide with rushing water that ended in a small wade pool. Lots of fun kids. I hope to visit again.

Beautiful setting - small lake with campgrounds surrounded by National Forest. Most campgrounds are Class A with water and electricity. Great swimming area. Only 30 minutes from Little Rock.

According to the official Forest Service website, dogs are only allowed in the campground area, and not in the day-use park. Even there, they must be kept on a leash.
