A camp site specifically designed for the cross-country traveler on the go. Just a few short miles (nearly all 4-lane blacktop) off I-40 north of Conway we have created a site designed for easy access and efficient camping. Moreover it lies at the edge of Pinnacle Springs Campground and thus offer miles of trails and river to explore if one has a little extra time. And even if in a hurry to break ground after a night's sleep one can still explore the cascades of nearby Tanner's Pool Trail before departing in the morning.

The campsite has everything: picnic table, bench, and fire ring with grill -- even a bundle of firewood ready to burn.  And electricity, water and clean porta-potty are all readily available for your use. Instant booking allows for last minute reservations late into the night if so desired.  This camp is designed for quick in and out camping.  Approaches:

1)  Walk -- Park at the gate (small field just to the right).  Campsite is less than 100 feet away via Tanner's Pool Trail.  You can see green table and bench from gate.

2)  Drive -- If unlocked, open the gate (lift loop over post to open, close to maximize privacy and security) and drive through pine grove.  As soon as you emerge from pine grove there is a road off to your right -- follow, bearing right until you loop back to arrive at campsite -- you can park literally aside your tent.  Hint:

We strongly encourage you to explore the grounds while visiting -- Tanner's Trail which descends the hill from the campsite offers a great way to see the land and access the river.

We had a wonderful time here camping along the creek.
Loved having a picnic tables at our site and bench to watch the water. The land is absolutely beautiful! We will be back for sure! There are several sites here, we happen to be the only ones this time which was so peaceful, but i imagine in the summer it is quite popular having a swimming hole!
