Secluded cabin on the S.Fork Caddo River. This beautiful 80 acre property and cabin offers guests free use of kayaks, tubes, and a paddle boat for enjoyment in the large swimming hole area of the river. You will also enjoy private access to the entire property, including the unique outdoor bathhouse overlooking the river and Ouachita Mountains.  Enjoy the views from the wraparound porch and three-tier deck. Cook dinner in the fully equipped (but small) kitchen, or outside on the propane grill or fire rings. Explore 3 miles of trails on the property.

The bathhouse contains a large outdoor shower, antique tub, and sink. And since the cabin sits in the middle of 80 acres with no other cabin or house on the property, you won't have to worry about neighbors. Many guests tell us that they never want to bathe indoors again!

Inside, the cabin has 1 bedroom (1 queen, 1 twin bed), and a loft bedroom (1 queen, 1 full bed). There is a small bathroom with toilet, full tub and shower, and living area.

There are 116 steps from the cabin down to the river and the last 1/2 mile of road is dirt and sometimes has ruts. There is also a steep hill just before the cabin so a small SUV or truck is helpful (although my small car does fine if I am careful).

Why so cheap? The cabin is listed on another website for a much higher rate. This HipCamp listing allows us to fill in gaps between the other booked guests.  This lower price and listing is for couples only since couples require less cleaning and wear & tear. It is also listed on HipCamp as a camping only option.

Don't see open dates? Contact us and we'll try to work something out in between other bookings. We have to keep the calendar mostly blocked since the cabin rents often on the other website. Just provide me with a range of possible dates so I can try to squeeze you in.

    We had a great time in this scenic, secluded home. All the amenities you could ask for to enjoy a great outdoor getaway- hiking trails, kayaks, games, etc.
    The house has an extensive multi layered deck that includes an outside shower and tub, really neat!
    Convenient location to a neighboring town 10-15 minutes drive away. We also drove to hot Springs for the day, about an hour trip.
    Highly recommended- the host communicated well and took good care of us.

    This place is amazing. The view is incredible. The cabin is supremely comfortable and stocked well. The hiking is plentiful and well-marked. Due to the season we came, we didn't kayak or play in the river, but I can only imagine this place would be super fun during the warmer months. This was a delightful treat and we would come back in a heartbeat.
