Love Ouachita River Haven! We are regular tent campers but have never stayed in the tipi. Super nice and convenient. Great tent camping experience but a little less work for us.

Loved this place: Staff was very accommodating. Had some bad weather and staff came down to check on us and offered us a place to stay in case it got to crazy. They weren't over bearing they let us ride it out; without forcing us to go inside. The dog Shop came down every morning to greet my nephews and hang out for a bit for belly rubs and maybe a couple Cheetos the "accidentally" got dropped. We did the primitive camping spot they are spread out far enough that you still feel like you have your own space. They did have the water turned off for winter. So maybe grab a case of water when you go. Not deducting any review points because I know if I ask they would have accommodated. There is plenty of fire wood laying around that was a worry of mine. The sites are first come first serve so maybe get there right at noon which is the check in to get a spot close to the river. The bathrooms are kind of a walk from the tent sites so if someone with limited mobility is camping you may have to drive them up. probably like 200 hards or less away. Each sites also has a Fire ring as well as "fire grill" so you don't have to bring a grate, also each place has a picnic table. Overall Amazing spot, Feels secluded enough without feeling like a KOA but enough amenities that your not roughing it.

Great time to get away from societ!
What a beautiful site! The tent was cozy and they even left us some fire wood! There was a grounds dog that was too sweet. Definitely bring some lights as there’s only lights in the tent if your looking for a solo night alway from society this is the spot! Absolutely beautiful spot, quiet, great people. Will come back!

Amanda, and her husband, have a wonderful location for those that enjoys some peace and quiet with the outdoors. Our family of four stayed in a camper close to the bathrooms. The slope was gradual and easy to back in/level, and the small campground made bathroom visits minimal for other guests.
Some things to know, the water is well water (I believe) so there is an odor to it. It’s not a problem, just catches you off guard when you first brush your teeth or go for a glass to drink.
The grounds are well kept and manicured, including the dock. During our stay, the river was abnormally low. But, that made way for some water crossing on foot that normally wouldn’t be an option.
If you have a dog that doesn’t get along with other dogs, there is a stray dog that frequents the area. He is super sweet, but may come say hi to an otherwise unhappy family dog. Just an fyi.
10/10, we would absolutely come back!

Sarah left great instructions to the campsite. Sites were well spaced apart.

Truly an opportunity to unplug!
Our stay at Amanda’s tipi was exactly the back to nature experience we wanted! The land and space was beautiful. A new, upgraded bathhouse was a nice surprise. The mattress in the tipi is an air mattress and the bedding is a quilt. Perfect for summer camping trips, but we’re glad we brought additional blankets. Our favorite part was the warm welcome from the pup at camp.

Quiet family grounds
We loved the family vibes of this place! Private sites, beautiful property, knowledgeable hosts, what more could you ask for? Oh, but of course dogs! Our herd loved Shop- the grounds dog, and so did we. Five minute drive to the store, but plenty of relaxation.

The Tipi was everything we could have hoped for. Loved the Halloween decor..lots of places for amazing pictures. As soon as we arrived we were greeted by Casey who made us feel at home. My daughter enjoyed meeting other kids at the campground and loved the tire swings. If you want to be river front get a tent site. I enjoyed being secluded on the hill in the Tipi away from everyone. It only takes a about 2 min to walk down to the water. The whole property is gorgeous. It was an amazing experience and we will be back.

I highly enjoyed camping on Amanda's land! This was my first experience camping in Arkansas and it was the perfect introduction. The campsites were spaced far enough apart that you didn't feel on top of each other, yet close enough that it wasn't a long walk to get to where you wanted to go. The access to the river was easily accessible and we all enjoyed the swims we took. The camp dog Shop came for a visit and played with my dog for a bit and let us pet him. He was very friendly and well behaved. Amanda and her husband were great host and answered every question we had. I would most definitely camp there again.

The tent camping area was beautiful with easy access to the Ouachita river. Amanda's husband goes out of his way to make sure you have a great experience. He even gave us directions to a little know area spring. We very much enjoyed our stay and highly recommend this site!

My family and a friend family stayed for 3 nights and 4 days here . Very nice people . Wasn't to far from the river . We even had the chance to see a friendly baby deer. One of the nights we stayed , there was a storm rolling in , we were in tents . Amanda & Casey took time to come to us and let us know if weather got to bad or kids got scared we could sit out the storm in one of there cabins . Loved the fact they took that into consideration. We will be back for sure ! Very polite people . Checked on us as well .

The tipi was great. But next time I will tent camp because those sites are right next to the river! It was gorgeous and very refreshing. Overall the stay was very peaceful.

We enjoyed the drive here, it was a beautiful one! Close to Hot Springs, AR.
Chop was an amazing addition to our stay.
I am happy to have read Amanda’s instructions before arriving, bugs do get wild but thankfully I had plenty of bug spray!

The primitive camp sites are very spacious and shady and by the river. Great for camping in Arkansas Summer heat! The staff was very friendly and helpful. It was a gorgeous area to camp.
