The Hole in the Wall NWA is initially offering primitive camping with amenities such a communal fire ring at the mouth of the cave and porta-potties.  Sorry, but we don't offer hookups at this time and there is no water on the property. Please note that the cave is sometimes blocked off for private events.

Check out "More Listings at Hole in the Wall" on the right side of this page to book one of our campsites with a 12x12 wooden platform and private fire ring, or to rent out the cave for an extra special overnight camping experience or small soiree. 

If you'd like to buy-out the entire 12-acre property or any questions, don't hesitate to reach out to Hole in the Wall NWA directly - just Google and you'll find our website with direct contact information.

Property Description: 

This cave and 12 acres is remembered fondly by Bella Vista locals.  Used in the 1930’s by farmers for hay storage, later for fiddling and square dancing, visited secretly by lovers and mischief makers, and offered up as a sanctuary for wildlife, this piece of Bella Vista history is now available for all to enjoy. While this camping destination feels a world away, we're just 18 minutes away from Downtown Bentonville's many breweries, restaurants, trails, special events, and the fabulous Crystal Bridges museum. And 14 minutes from the nearest grocery store. 

Located near the southern tip of Lake Windsor in Bella Vista, AR, The Hole in the Wall NWA is a space for mountain bikers, locals, families, and groups to step out of the rat race, step back in time, and connect with nature, friends, family, and community. As avid outdoor folk and mountain bikers ourselves, we're happy to help you plan a perfect trip in the area. 

We're excited to share that starting October 2019, this property will be a stone's throw from the Pontoon Park Trailhead of the Bella Vista "Eleven Under" 50-mile mountain biking loop expansion. In the meantime, we're  10-20 minutes from the best of what Oz Trails has to offer today in Northwest Arkansas, including the Back 40, Blowing Springs, Coler, Slaughter Pen and more.  

The Hole in the Wall NWA is initially offering primitive camping with amenities such as tent platforms, fire rings, and porta-potties available. Our start on amenities and accommodations is rustic, but we’ve got plenty more exciting options planned for the future, including more amenities, live music, local fare and more. Check out our website for a sneak peak of what we're up to next. Y’all come back now, y’hear?

Thanks to our dear friend Patty @ Patty V Photography for the great images!

Beautiful property and great hosts. You’re close to town but feel like your in your own wooded oasis. Would recommend!

It’s a gate with a code and a field where you can camp wherever you want. My wife and I stayed two nights in a 3 day mountain bike trip. We found creeks to get in for our showers and jumped in a couple lakes. The one port a potty was clean enough. Most of the other campers were polite and nice. One group that stayed on the platforms was loud and obnoxious, seemingly on purpose. The grass could have been better mowed, but it didn’t bother us at all.
I’m pointing out things that could bother less rugged campers. We had a great trip, and slept well. We will probably stay there next trip. If you aren’t expecting much, this place is perfect.

Private, lots of shade trees, the platforms are nice but not necessary. Could have been mowed better/shorter. Would stay again. Location is decent for MTB access.

This site is going to be great. Very rustic right now! We were the only ones there during our stay and we had plenty of time to explore the grounds. Our dog had so much fun running around! If we are ever passing through again we’d love to come back and see how the grounds have turned out. We had a great time.

Such a cool experience hanging out around the fire pit inside the cave! It feels surprisingly secluded for how accessible it is from downtown Bentonville and the hosts are extremely helpful and responsive. 10/10 would recommend!

Hole in the Wall is a convenient 15 minute drive from Bentonville proper. The Back 40 Loop trailhead is roughly 5-10 minutes drive away and the Slaughter Pen area is about 15 or so minutes.

The site itself is very clean, including one very clean porta-potty. The natural cave is a cool (literally) little shared hideaway. There is plenty of flat space to park. I had no problem leveling my Dodge Promaster for the perfect night's sleep.

I did get to meet the host and their work crew on my second day. They were all super friendly and the host was very helpful with directions and recommendations. There is so much to see and do in this area I plan to return regularly and will gladly make Hole in the Wall my basecamp for future adventures!

super cool and private spot right off the road but felt secluded. Modular campsites and mobil fire rings made it so you can pick out the perfect spot on the property without any issues. Would definitely come back at any time.
