We had such an amazing stay! This campsite is absolutely beautiful, and so serene. We had a group of three, with two tents at site 13 -which was right off the river. Amanda was such a gracious host, getting us matches our first night and the workers made sure we were stocked up on wood all weekend. The shower house could use an update, but the owners are relatively new to the property so I'm sure it is on their list. We loved our long weekend away and would definitely recommend this campsite to anyone.

Site 13 - it was fun watching the cows graze around this field and hearing them mooSite 13 (and 14) seemed more secluded than some of the other sites, and both are right off the riverSite 13 - the only vehicles that drove by us all weekend were heading to site 14Site 13 - overlooks the beautiful river, has a perfect ledge for fishing or just sitting and enjoying the water

What a wonderful camping location! We had a great time. So quiet and peaceful. The stars were bright the night we stayed there. Owners were very nice and informative.

What a beautiful spot to stay on the Ouachita river. Campsites are spacious and clean, beautiful views along the river, warm showers and super friendly host family. This little haven felt super safe and welcoming - we didn't take advantage or the canoe/kayak trip but hope to come back and enjoy it next time!

We were a bit disappointed to arrive and not be able to camp in the secluded area we had originally planned due to mud, but it was a great time and the host was kind. It was a peaceful stay!

What a lovely, hidden gem! The river was peaceful, Amanda was gracious, and the surrounding woods made me feel cocooned in nature.
