OPEN AGAIN!!  One of the best swimming holes in Arkansas and it is all yours!!   Set on an island on the North Fork of  Cadron Creek -- central Arkansas' premier Class II whitewater river! -- this get-away-from-it-all cabin sleeps four  and an adjoining campsite allows for as many as 8 more people to  have  the  entire swimming hole all to yourselves.   This is the way to spend your summer days in Arkansas!  Inside the two-story cabin you have a long cabinet/bar with storage, a small table, and chairs.  Downstairs there is twin size bunk bed  and in the up-ladder loft there is a full size futon.   Outside there is a full length front porch with rocking chairs; and, upstairs a sliding glass door leads to a balcony overlooking the creek.     A nearby picnic table, fire ring, charcoal grill, and lamp hook allow you to bring it all outside and wrap yourself in nature.  A stone trail leads to the water where you can splash and swim, jacuzzi in Sarah's Wave, bask in the sun atop Jump Rock, float to Professor's Pool -- we offer boat rental and shuttles -- or simply enjoy the marvelous works and wonders.  Visitors are also encouraged to wander and explore any of the trails that criss-cross the 100 acre park.  You'll find waterfalls, goat bluffs, and even a nine hole frisbee golf course,  Downwind of the cabin and away from the river there is a sanitized porta-potty.  One can also obtain tokens ($3-5) to use the shower house at Camp Toasty (a short walk up to the ridge overlooking the creek).   Whether looking for a lonely weekend for two, a great place for a small group of friends, or a family-fun, creekin' adventure with the kids, Pinnacle Springs Cabin is the place for it to happen.   

Additional amenities that are available -- 1)  Solar electricity -- $20/day -- no ovens or blow dryers unless you want to run out of juice but certainly suitable for lights and fans (already in place), phones, music, etc.  and 2) WiFi -- $10/day, unlimited usage.

Whoa! Absolutely must visit if you are anywhere close to Pinnacle Springs Cabin. John was an amazing host and facilitated the most amazing adventures! The cabin was awesome - bring your gear and relax with the amazing fog in the mornings. The grill was a nice surprise to have in the morning.

The weather had been super rainy the previous week and the entire region was flooded. John was ready with kayaks for us to help us cross the river and get to the cabin. I've definitely got to come back and get some lessons in peak season because John was an amazing host / guide / adventure partner / all of the above!

Go here! Go here! Go here!

Fantastic cabin in the middle of the woods. You’re close to the campground, but have plenty of privacy. Being right on the river is perfect.

No power to the cabin (knew that going in), but there is a place to charge cell phones, etc. Beautiful spot, we’ll be back!

Thank you Chris for the glowing review. So glad you enjoyed your stay on the river -- it looked like your kids (three lovely dogs) had a great time exploring the woods. The cabin will be getting a complete "overhaul" this year while we construct our new restroom and shower house. So please come again next year and enjoy the improvements. Thanks again. John and Lisa

The stay was amazing! No electricity, but we knew that already. It was perfect actually because we wanted to get away from everything. The view from the balcony was amazing. It rained most of the time, but the setting was perfect for a stay in. The trails were fun and the water was great!

Thanks! The sound of cascading water is definitely soothing to the ears. I like just leaving the windows completely open and getting that feelin' of sleeping totally outside. Pure bliss! And we absolutely love your leave-no-trace ethics! You make our job easy.

All around superb camping experience! We rented the cabin along with a couple of friends and had a wonderful weekend. The cabin was real nice and cozy, not to mention it’s an excellent value. It’s located right by the creek bank with access to a nice swimming/fishing hole. We really couldn’t have asked for a better host, either. John is a friendly warm soul who is very accommodating and down to earth. The staff was friendly as well. We’ve camped at Pinnacle Springs many times and will continue to do so. This is honestly my absolute favorite place to camp! It’s a stunning piece of land, chock full of natural beauty and splendor!

We enjoyed our stay at the cabin. There’s plenty of space inside with two stories with awesome views on the balconies! The path down to the water is really pretty and I can’t wait to go back in the summer to swim in the pools. I would highly recommend staying here.
