Best for self-contained campers. There are no toilets, showers, or potable water at this Hipcamp.
The Crystal Camp Campground is a rock hounding paradise and is less than two minutes from the Crystal Vista, Wegner and Avatar Crystal mines. This area of Arkansas produces some of the finest quartz crystals on earth and your chances of finding real treasure at any of the nearby mines is pretty much guaranteed. If your kids like to play in the dirt and hunt for treasure they will fill their pockets with real gems at any of the nearby mines. Please Note: This is a beautiful property and ready for your trip but guests should expect a work in progress as well. The property is newly cleared, we installed new picnic tables and have a weekly maintained porta potty on site. But that's the extent of the amenities right now. This property was basically a 2 acre blackberry patch. About half has been cleared and 4 campsites created but the rest is still in progress. Work will not be performed during your stay. You may see tools and signs of recent work etc.. Located on a paved section of Owley Road in Mount Ida Arkansas. This is a large 2 acre property with four cleared sites that offer plenty of room for any size tent(s). Generators are welcome and pets are too. The property is bordered by old growth national forest and an ice cold spring fed stream is located in the national forest behind the property. Like all wooded areas in Arkansas ticks should be expected while hiking and camping at the Crystal Camp Campground. Please bring tick defense for yourself and pets.The Crystal Camp Campground is a rock hounding paradise and is less than two minutes from the Crystal Vista, Wegner and Avatar Crystal mines.   This area of Arkansas produces some of the finest quartz crystals on earth and your chances of finding real treasure at any of the nearby mines is pretty much guaranteed.  If your kids like to play in the dirt and hunt for treasure they will fill their pockets with real gems at any of the nearby mines.  Please Note: This is a beautiful property and ready for your trip but guests should expect a work in progress as well.

Beautiful, peaceful site. Easy to find. Crystals all over the ground and wonderful forest hikes behind the property. Hosts were very responsive to my last minute booking.

This was a beautiful low key spot. Close to Crystal mining. The hosts were lovely and responded quickly. I would definitely stay here again.

A nice secluded camp right off a blacktop road. We enjoyed exploring in the national forest which butts up to the property. The neighbors drive a loud pickup truck and have barking dogs so there are some noises in the early night and early morning.

Amazing spot for viewing the eclipse. We drove from Alabama with our dog the day before. Crystal Vista is a must if you stay here. We left with some amazing finds. The site is very dog friendly. Our neighbors dogs and ours had the best time playing the whole time.
