Less than a minute from the Kings River Falls trailhead and nestled alongside the headwaters of the Kings River in Venus Arkansas. This is a remote and rugged campground with caves, bluffs, swimming holes and river a plenty. This campground has a grand exhibition of the same sandstone formation that is responsible for the Whitaker Point (Hawksbill Crag) formation.  Clovis like points have been found here, and so one might assume the bluffs and crags here have been inhabited for millennia. 

We have picnic tables and fire rings at each site. If you have a large group, please contact us before booking to ensure that we are able to accommodate your group. This 7-acre property is completely surrounded by Arkansas Natural Heritage-Natural Area. There are miles of trails and cooling waters at every turn. 

 If you like Kings River Falls, get ready to fall in love with this Red Fern Campground. 

 Lose yourself in a fairy-tale land. With endless places to explore and amazing natural features at every turn this experience will not disappoint. 

Most of our campsites are just yards away from a public swimming area, which is shared between our property and the Arkansas Natural Area. You should expect local traffic at the main swimming area during your stay.  We have a private swimming area on our property which is just a short hike from the developed campsites (Please ask the camphost for directions). 

Please be aware that cell phone service is spotty to virtually non-existent. Also, it's a good idea to bring waterproof hiking shoes or water shoes since our camping spots may require walking across a low water creek. This campground also requires travel down miles of county-maintained dirt roads. Expect your car to get dusty. We are unable to accommodate travel trailers and RVs at this time. Parking at your campsite requires a drive across a low water creek, otherwise you will need to park and walk across. Lastly, bring tick defense for yourself and your pets.

I have camped at Red Fern twice now, once in the winter and once in the summer. It is the best campground I have ever come across! The drive there is very scenic. Once there, you are surrounded by bluffs, caves, creeks, and swimming holes. I’m already planning my next trip!
