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.

Such a beautiful piece of land! My husband and I came for our wedding anniversary and it was one of the best vacations we’ve yet to have in our adventure of life together! Always a good time at this campground and will definitely be back! 💜✨

It was peaceful during the day, but when it hit nighttime, the noise started. We dealt withbitvtil 10.01 and i messaged the owner, she I assumed, went and spoke with them but not 20 mins later they started up again and it lasted ALL night long. Along with them and dogs constantly barking all around you all night long we did not get any sleep. Also, the showers are horrible, i refused to take a shower in them. It looks like they have not maintained them for a very long time. The restrooms werent bad but could use some updating. The customer def needs to know upfront about all of the dogs and their constant barking before they book this place. And lastly, i tried to contact the owner several times before we got there and i got nothing! Not until i made the complaint about all of the noise, those people were walking down around the camps and creek at all hours of the night, that did not make me feel very safe that night.

Response from Amanda, the Host, on September 26th, 2021

This was Tammy’s first time using Hipcamp-this was apparent. We ARE pet friendly, so there are pets on the property. We do have a quiet time that begins at 10 pm (this guest began complaining at 8:30, a bit too early to ask other guests to quiet down for someone else’s sleeping habits). We do respond to guests who contact us prior to their visit-however this guest was asking payment questions (which are a Hipcamp question, not a host question) and she was informed of that. She also did reach out to let us know they were an hour out..which we did not feel the need to respond to. We do appreciate feedback about our showers, they are older and we purchased this property nearly a year ago. They are top priority. All in all, we have 5 star reviews from all of our other guests, and after discussing with Hipcamp it was determined the guest is not suitable for camping in general, and should better acquaint themselves with Hipcamp prior to making another booking at a different host location.

Beautiful sites on the river. We had the best spot in the haven, I was told. But really there where quite a few spots that looked amazing!

We had an excellent stay at Ouachita River Haven! We loved our camp site and the weather was great. The hosts were kind and accommodating. They are obviously working hard to create a fun and inviting atmosphere for their guests. They were always around and always helpful. They fulfilled any requests quickly and kindly. Our camp site was beautiful and backed up right onto the river. We also rented a canoe and had a great experience! It was a really fun trip and we would highly recommend this site to any one who asks.
