We stayed at a tent site named CD Alley that you hike to down by the creek. It's a several hundred foot descent from where you park at the camp store, but it honestly isn't that bad. The trail is easy to follow and well kept. The atmosphere there is amazing especially with the creek noise all night. This site...

We tent camped here for two nights (tailgate site 5). The site was nicely laid out with just enough room for our large tent, a picnic table, fire ring, and parking for our truck. The campground has two short (and steep) trails that lead you down to the creek side camp sites. The campground was well maintained and quiet. Jason...

My wife and I stayed here,,, in the chalet. What a view for the sunrise!!! Cozy chalet with a clawfoot tub and skylight just added to the charm and comfort that we experienced. The owners are attentive, and willing to help with directions, local information, etc. The town is small and charming,, and we enjoyed the local nightlife with refreshing...

Loved our stay at Creek Ridge the people running it Eric, Jason etc. were so friendly and helpful! Most of the campsites are a little bit of a hike with sites also by the creek. If you don't mind a walk to the car it's a beautiful place to camp with a mountain view. Only one bath with a shower...

We stayed in the rustic cabin down near the tailgate camping area. The cabin was beautiful and Julie was so friendly and helpful. The grounds are beautiful and the proximity to Hot Springs was very convenient.

We had a great experience with Creek Ridge Camping. The campground has various offerings -- cabins, campsites by the creek or on a hill with a view -- check out their website to see the really interesting array of choices. We stayed in a tailgate car camping spot. It was private and surrounded by trees -- very nice. The campground...

The hike up and down is brutal and only meant for someone hiking AT. Don't bring a lot of stuff unless you want to be sweating heavily after arriving at your site, and then having to go back up to get firewood. only one shower at the top of the hill and its nasty af

If you are going to camp in or around Hot Springs, bypass the campgrounds in town and choose this one! It's a beautiful campground - the sites are well maintained, private, quiet....you are close to town and several places with access to the river. My family has camped all across the US and this is one of the top 10...

Stayed two nights, one night at each end of an AT section hike. When we arrived, the "office" was locked. Called the contact number and spoke to someone who told me to just reach inside the crack in the door and put my money inside. A little too casual, but maybe that is just Hot Springs. So he tells me...

We had an amazing weekend. Even with a bit of rain we had a blast. We tent camped and hiked to the river to hang out. It was a nice hike and worth every step because the creek it beautiful! Pretty well maintained and the bathrooms are also a plus! Will definitely be back! Next time we want to camp...
