OMS Camp Site 3
I had a first time camper with me. Heidi was very helpful in understanding what the campsite, water and toilet situation would be like. The site was nice and flat. We put two tents on it. The restroom was a slight walk down the path, but is a REALLY nice outhouse with a composting toilet; not just a bucket in a pop up tent. We took a walk in the trails before dark. It was very peaceful and relaxing. There was a shower and hot tub available, but we did not use it. We would definitely consider this location again.

We had an amazing time camping at OMS. The camp sites, trails and meditation sites were perfect. Everything was easily accessible without loosing the true "woodsy" experience. The views are gorgeous. The owners were extremely helpful when our truck stalled out while still in the woods. We are extremely grateful and suggest OMS to anyone wanting to get away, connect with nature and enjoy Mother Earth.

We had an absolutely perfect weekend camping on Heidi’s land. Like other reviews noted, site 2 is secluded enough that we didn’t see the other campers, and the nature trail is incredible. The guided meditation suggestions are an added bonus, or you could bring your yoga mat and do some sun salutations on the meditation platform. It was nice to be able to take a shower and jump in the hot tub after a long day of exploring beautiful NW Arkansas. I can’t say enough things about the experience, and it’s money well spent. Thanks, Heidi and crew at OMS!

Thank you for the rest and solitude
We were greeted by Heidi and shown the outdoor shower and hot tub right away. We were then lead down the hill to a campsite that was quite visually secluded. We didn’t see another visitor for the entire 3 day stay. Site two (where we stayed) was near a fence-line in the woods that separated the OMS property from a neighbor. However, the greenery in early October was enough of a screen from that neighbor, but not may not be after the leaves fall away - we were not far from a house there, but we didn’t see or hear from them in 3 days. The site was also quiet in the day, but there was a persistent dog barking in the distance for a long while on the first night. The 2nd night was much more quiet, and we slept well both nights anyways (the dog was not a coyote, which we also heard and were happily charmed by both nights). We weren’t alone though. There was a very sly and peculiar grey cat that stayed with us in the night. It would always come from downhill, away from Heidi’s residence. It begged for food and sat in my lap by the fire. It was a wonderful bonus to be trusted and loved by this kitty while we were there. There were also 3 funny chickens that showed up on the last day and swept the picnic table for scraps. The compost toilet and the tiny structure that enclosed it were charming, clean, and easy to use. We were very thankful to have it. There were also short trails through the woods with interesting rock-hewn assembly spots, which made for fun explor’n

Heidi‘s land is a haven, the aquifer water a delightful treat. The grounds are perfect for wandering and reflecting. I met several delightful critters and enjoyed the changing leaves.

Not secluded or relaxing
Second time staying here. First time was nice overall. Minus site saying free wood then being told it was donation based once we reached the camp. Second time however solidified me never going back. Dogs and Tom were great hosts never saw Heidi. Our campsite was directly on property line with rambunctious neighbors who one day pooped next to our tent. Restroom needed service when we arrived but never received it till we complained because it was full to the very top. Also to park your car for site two you will get tons of scratches. We were in small car and the trees/brush are so overgrown on the driveway you destroy your car to park.

I have been staying with OMS campsite #2 for the last 3 years. I always brag about it to all my friends. It is a convenient stay from the historic downtown of Eureka Springs while providing a place to detach from the world around & refocus on self while taking in the beauty of nature. The sunrises are stunning & the night skies are beautiful. Last year when we went we were asked to pay a donation for the firewood they have onsite. Which is good being that they take the time and effort to gather and chop it for you. Just be aware because at that time the listing did not mention this. The property next to us has what looked like an carport of sorts located on the same side of the property we stayed at. Each night they had guests & were quite loud pretty late. Additionally they kept the carport light on majority of the evening which we could see. This is not at all the fault of the OMS staff, but something to keep in mind if you are going on a weekend where there are events. Some people may be able to overlook these things & still enjoy all the beauty the property has to offer, however it was disheartening for me. I wanted to use this time to detach from the world & recharge, only to have constant reminders of the world I tried to leave behind. Our picnic table broke when someone sat on one side, looked due to rot. No one got hurt but nothing happened after we mentioned it. Heidi never came out to greet us or visit during this trip. Tom was kind and helpful.

Beautiful community and star gazing
What a great camping experience. Heidi was great amd showed me around the property. She took me to camp site 2, which was In a great location. I love animals and I had a couple of dogs stop by to say hello, a few chickens passed through,, and one cat who hung out with me all night, which was cool :-) I took advantage of the hot tub which was so nice, loved the outdoor shower, and the view of the sunset over the tree line, that was amazing! Not only did I get to visit with Heidi...At OMS I was glad to meet Justin and Raphy (workers) and had great conversations with them as well. I felt safe, secluded, and it was nice to have the well water spout right near Camp. I would definitely return, I had such an amazing time! Oh, and the stars!!!

Peaceful spot, poor communication
The campsite itself was lovely. Very peaceful and as a woman traveling alone with her dog I felt safe. There were cute chickens walking around in the morning and some cows in the distance. However I was disappointed when I arrived I couldn’t get a hold of Heidi despite calling repeatedly for half an hour, and the listing has no description for how to find the campsite, just says you have to meet with the host first. I wandered around for a bit until I bumped into Jonathan who kindly showed me to the campsite. But I didn’t even get a call back from Heidi until hours later, well after dark. I wish I had been able to walk the meditation paths while there but I spent so long trying to get in contact that I had to rush to set up camp before it got dark. Again, the site was lovely, the drive out there is beautiful, and there are a handful of friendly dogs out and about. But the disorganization really added a lot of stress to my experience.

Tent Camping in the Rain!
Loved tent camping here and look forward to coming back again. Even though it rained both nights we stayed the area was perfect for the rain to roll right on down the hill and we stayed perfectly dry in our tent. The staff was so genuinely kind and we loved getting to know him and the doggos! Truly allowed us to get back in touch with nature and slow down. Loved the outdoor shower and the outhouse. Overall amazing place to stay and was great for my college budget.

Peaceful refuge
Heidi has created an extraordinary place to enjoy the natural beauty of the land. One of the best car camping experiences ever! The compost toilet alone is a work of art. We didn't see any other campers as we had our own water spigot right near our space (#2) and camps aren’t visible to each other. Just a stellar place.

Beautiful and Peaceful
We camped at campsite 1 at OMS and it was so amazing. The perfect recharge for the mind, body and spirit. The trail was a great workout for the body and each zen space was thought provoking and important inner work. Our campsite had a beautiful willow tree that we laid underneath and stared at the stars for hours spotting numerous shooting stars over the night. We loved our time and are taking the lessons and peace how with us.

For my first hip camp experience, Heidi’s campsite was amazing! The other reviews led me to it, and I’m saying ditto to all the great info they shared. I loved the meditative spaces and experience. It was completely in alignment with my vibes and goals for this particular trip. I can’t wait to return!

A lot of great things about this place. The land is beautiful. The compositing toilet is clutch. The hot tub is great. The meditation spots are lovely. Just be aware that if it rains and you’re parked at a campsite, you’ll probably get stuck in the mud! But Nicholas and Justin came through for the win getting us out!

Reconnect with your soul and nature
Beautiful views and an extremely good host. If you are looking for a chance to reconnect both with nature and yourself then OMS is absolutely for you! The 1 mile walking trail is dotted with beautiful numbered stopping points of interest that each have their own meditation rite to enjoy. Each stop along the trail has an associated number and a box that contains an explanation for the purpose and importance of that particular site and its associated meditation. Even if you spent just 5 to 10 minutes at each stop and meditated it would take you most of a day to complete. Located a mere 10 minutes from Downtown Eureka Springs, Arkansas. An outdoor shower and completely chemical free hot tub are included which are amazing extras. Free firewood is included, provided you dont mind collecting it from the wood shed and transporting it to your selected camp site. Wheelbarrows and small wagons are conveniently provided for this task. Pet friendly. Your fur babies will have the time of their lives running and playing here! I almost can't say enough about this beautiful, inclusive and serene getaway. A true (nearly) hidden gem in the Eureka Springs area!

Ideally located for exploring
This campsite had everything a novice camper could need—potable water, an outhouse, and a delicious outdoor shower (warmed us up on that cold morning), all we brought was our tent + food/cooking supplies! We had easy access to all that Eureka Springs offers + got to explore the Beaver Lake area!

Magical
Second time staying on this land and we are so in love with it. This time we camped and the camping spot was perfect! Heidi graciously provided some firewood and the outhouse is very special (when you see it you’ll know what I mean). Definitely hike the trail and do the meditations. Such a beautiful property and a special piece of Arkansas!

Just what we needed
Heidi was a superb host! She communicated with us before our arrival and met us when we got there. After showing us around, we got settled in. There was plenty of firewood and the amenities were just as she said in the description. We spent the morning exploring the meditation trails which were absolutely enchanting. In the afternoon we drove into Eureka Springs. If your looking for a quiet camping experience with a serene, pleasant vibe, this is your spot. It was just what we needed.
