Primitive camping
Best for self-contained campers. There are no toilets, showers, or potable water at this Hipcamp.
This property is one of the only places that privately accesses Lake Leatherwood -- explore! Fun fact: The house was built in the '20s as "The Tumble Inn" where people who were bootlegging liquor would stop over! Learn more about this land: Welcome to Morningstar, a primitive camp nestled in a beautiful deciduous forest on a 16 acre family compound that boarders 1400 acre Lake Leatherwood. You'll set up camp right next to a natural spring and waterfall, with a small cave nearby. There are several spots for sustainable camping in the designated area, room for up to six people, if family or friends will be joining you. But this is a private, one-site camp, so you'll have the place all to yourself. Nearby Lake Leatherwood is home to award winning trail systems created and well maintained for hikers and mountain bikers alike. Enjoy fishing, kayaking and peddle boats year round. Black Bass Lake is also nearby, a beautiful spot for a short hike or a little fishing. An Arkansas fishing license is required for all visitors, and guest passes may be purchased on the Arkansas Game and Fish website. You'll feel glorious seclusion and quiet solitude, surrounded by forest and wildlife... and yet downtown Eureka Springs is just 2 miles from camp. Hike, drive, or hop a Trolley and explore the historic wonders and one-of-a-kind shopping and dining that Eureka Springs has to offer. Need recommendations? Just ask. We'll be happy to point you to our favorites, or ask any local. Eureka people are a friendly bunch! Then come on back to camp for a night of rest and relaxation by the fire and listen to the delicate trickle of water from the spring's moss and ferns. Morningstar welcomes tents and hammocks, but NO space for RVs, Pop-Ups, or Trailers of any kind is available. Only one car may park near the entrance and all gear must be hiked in, an easy one-minute walk. To locate parking: After turning left onto Hyde Hollow, take the first right, pass a tiny hiking trail to the right (not for public use), and park immediately after the trail on the right hand side of the road, allowing plenty of space for cars to pass. Then unload gear and walk the drive straight ahead, past a small cabin, and on to camp. There is a wooden swing as well as a fire pit for your enjoyment. Please respect the beauty and health of the natural spring and do not use soap in the clear pool of water. If you're looking for a bit of adventure, please feel free to explore the cave, but know that you do so at your own risk as we are not responsible for accidents. This is a primitive camp, so no running water, no shower, and no toilet facilities are provided. Please respect our forest and future campers by either providing your own compostable toilet or by digging a proper cat hole and leaving no trace.  No trash service, please pack-out all waste and leave no trace. Now, kick back, relax and enjoy all The Natural State has to offer.

Peaceful site minutes from eureka
Met Kim where the address led us, she then directed us to the campsite. It was an easy minute walk. You walk passed the spring to get to the site. It was a beautiful spot to enjoy, as the heat this weekend was pretty intense. She encouraged us to venture around and that we did. We loved trekking under the tall tree and poking around the ground at the rocks and creatures. It’s about a 6/8 minute drive to the main streets of Eureka. Perfect for going there for the day and an easy drive back to the quiet and a fire at night. It was so peaceful and lush out there. We thoroughly enjoyed our time

We loved tent camping on Kimberly’s land! She was an excellent host. Directions were a teeny bit confusing but no real issues finding everything. It was very conveniently located near town and an excellent little brewery! Would definitely recommend.

Kimberly’s land is BEAUTIFUL!!! crazy how secluded we felt just a 10 minute drive from downtown eureka springs. we’d never been before and loved exploring the town and surrounding woods. we had an amazing time! I want to share a few tips for getting the best experience out of this campsite: - take the directions to hyde hollow cabin! the site is a quick 5 minute walk from the cabin, easy to load your stuff if you’re physically capable, no giant rocky hills - if it rains on you there’s a rocky overhang to the right of the campsite as you’re walking up to it, take cover under there! stays bone dry and there’s a little fire pit for you - you won’t get firewood if you pay for it, but the people at hyde hollow cabin were happy to share some of theirs - ticks are HORRIBLE, but what would you expect in the arkansas woods! they’re not as bad under the rocky overhang. make sure you layer your clothes and bring plenty of bug spray. a local in town recommended cactus juice for us and it worked like a charm

Camping at Kimberly’s
Kimberly has an amazing location for camping, right on the side of a mountain overlooking two others. Make sure you wake up early to catch the sunset! You won’t regret it. You will need to look for flat land for your tent, she’s also does have some wooden platforms that you could put your tent on to make sure you’re confortable. Kimberly made sure my girlfriend and I were comfortable and even checked on us to make sure we weren’t freezing. (We camped on the first snowy day of the year, so for our situation it was very sweet.). Amazing lady and she knows all the good places to visit in Arkansas, we came from Austin Texas so we were not aware of anything in Arkansas. She really made us debate on moving to the Ozarks. Amazing people and they even brushed off the snow from our windshield. Couldn’t have asked for a better host.
