Shaded, semi-primitive , non-defined (first come/first served) camping. You may even score a river front spot, depending on when you arrive. Many people prefer along the shady creek. We have 26 beautiful shaded acres, so you'll definitely find a spot. Please note, when you are looking at the map, the numbered areas are RV sites, Not tent camping. Look for the areas on the Campground Map that say "camping".  The big E denotes shared electrical hookups. 

We have big clean bathrooms and hot showers. Camping areas are both near and far from small rustic cabins and RVs. Choose secluded locations or new friends. Shared electricity in some places. Bring your long extension cord. We also have a little shop that likely has anything you forgot. A full grocery store is 8 miles away, also. We sell firewood, ice and ice cream, too!

NOTE: If the office is closed, pick a spot and check-in in the morning.

We also rent kayaks, canoes and tubes for floating down the Caddo River.

We reserve the option to not float if we do not have bookings 24 hours prior. Larger groups, negotiable. Please call us if you have any questions. We have lots of answers. You might even find 42 on the river.

Our tent site on the river front was amazing. The restrooms were ok, there was hot water to the showers. The staff is very friendly and helpful.

Staff was uninformative when it came to the river. Did not know mileage from one point to the next and no information about the condition of the river as far as all the logjams and trees that have been laying across the river for quite some time. Other than that we have no issues. Very friendly staff and bathrooms and showers were clean

It was great for the price for sure. She was quick to respond when I had a question. The swimming area was really relaxing.

Flexible booking and affordable. We arrived late to being delayed from Dallas - checked in, in the morning as the office was not open. Friendly team, decent shower facilities, firewood and ice. Everything a happy camper needs!

Great campground for young people and the family alike. Lots of great spots located around a well maintained communal area. They have firewood, ice, bathrooms, and showers with hot water. The whole place is situated next to a beautiful river with clear, deep water. Make sure you arrive fairly early because this is a popular campground and sites are first come first serve.
