Less than a minute from the Kings River Falls Trail-head, and nestled alongside the headwaters of the Kings River in Venus Arkansas. This is a remote and rugged campground with caves, bluffs, swimming holes and river a plenty. This campground has a grand exhibition of the same sandstone formation that is responsible for the Whitaker Point (Hawksbill Crag) formation.  Clovis like points have been found here, and so one might assume the bluffs and crags here have been inhabited for millennia. 

We have picnic tables and fire rings at each site. If you have a large group, please contact us before booking to ensure that we are able to accommodate your group. This 7 acre property is completely surrounded by Arkansas Natural Heritage-Natural Area. There are miles of trails and cooling waters at every turn. 

 If you like Kings River Falls, get ready to fall in love with this Red Fern Campground. 

 Lose yourself in a fairy-tale land. With endless places to explore and amazing natural features at every turn this experience will not disappoint. 

Most of our campsites are just yards away from a public swimming area, which is shared between our property and the Arkansas Natural Area. You should expect local traffic at the main swimming area during your stay.  We have a private swimming area on our property which is just a short hike from the developed campsites (Please ask the camphost for directions). 

Please be aware that cell phone service is spotty to virtually non-existent. Also it's a good idea to bring waterproof hiking shoes or water shoes since our camping spots may require walking across a low water creek. This campground also requires travel down miles of county maintained dirt roads. Expect your car to get dusty. We are unable to accommodate travel trailers and RVs at this time. Parking at your campsite requires a drive across a low water creek, otherwise you will need to park and walk across. Lastly, bring tick defense for yourself and your pets.

I really enjoyed my stay here. I was at campsite #1 and it was really nice. They provided me with detailed instructions and maps to get to the campsite and I had no problem finding it. I also purchased a bundle of wood and it was more than enough for a night. I would definitely stay here again in the future.

Great spot!! We were there end of November and it was very quiet and secluded. Hosts were helpful and dropped wood at our site before we arrived. Nice little outhouse and beautiful landscape.

Sam and Michelle truly have a special place in this camp ground. The sites are raw but were accommodating and certainly met expectations. If I am ever planning a trip back to the Ozarks, I will plan to make a stop by!

We absolutely will be back! We loved the property, especially our site which was site 1. The campground was clean, well maintained, spacious with beautiful scenery. The outhouse was clean and well maintained. The owners were very nice and paid great attention to detail. This is a site we look forward to visiting in the future!
