Creature comforts
Enjoy the comforts of home at some sites—including flush toilets, showers, and a kitchen.
TOTALITY! Reservations for the 2024 Eclipse now available -- music, arts and science for all. And because we are located right on the Cadron we also offer kayak and canoe rental, guided trips, and shuttle service to various observation points and natural scenic areas. FYI: You'll not find more for less -- limited availability. Pinnacle Springs Recreational Park lies within a private nature reserve of hiking trails, waterfalls, bluffs, cascading streams and wildlife -- it is all here. The campground is off the radar -- there are no highway signs or advertisements -- yet offers comfortable and safe refuge to guests whether staying in a tent, camper, RV or one of our cabins. On site you can find swimming, paddling, fishing, hiking, a 6-acre foraging field, and 9-hole Frisbee golf course, a Ninja rope course with zipline and slackline, rope swing, bouldering, climbing, psicobloc and more outdoor pursuits than one has time. And Woolly Hollow State Park, Cove Creek Natural Heritage Area and Greer's Ferry Lake all lie within biking distance. New to camping? Need a flush toilet, kitchen sink and daily shower? Hate bugs, hate thorns, or hate wild critters? Or simply don't like being outside and in a primitive setting? Then this may NOT be the place!! But if you want to sneak away and find a lovely little place to unwind and bathe in a forest under a tall canopy of standing pines and oak trees, then Pinnacle Springs is where you need to be. Pinnacle Springs also offers riverside camping on the banks of the North Fork of Cadron Creek -- central Arkansas' premier whitewater stream -- and is less than an hour's drive from Little Rock (only 15 minutes from Conway and I-40). Camp by the side of a river. Camp at the foot or atop a towering bluff. Camp in a cave. Camp by a waterfall. Camp in a riparian jungle. Camp in total solitude or camp with friends and family. We offer so many choices one can select a site that perfectly fits their needs. And if you want total seclusion -- a real "wilderness experience" and are willing to "hike-in" a couple of hundred paces we can provide that too. No traffic noise here! Rather, you'll be soothed by the sound of cascading water echoing off the bluffs -- great for outdoor sleeping and keeping the air fresh and alive. Many of the camp sites are equipped with a heavy picnic table, fire pit and grill, lamp post and level tent site. And if you like to swing -- we have trees! Hammocks and slacklines are the best no trace tree thing ever! And although Pinnacle Springs Campground lies in an off-the-grid wilderness setting there is good cell phone service, a water hydrant can be found near the front gate behind the store, and electrical outlets for recharging phones and such can be found on the ridge at nearby Camp Toasty. And from March through November hot water showers are freely available. Guests are encouraged to explore any of the trails that criss-cross the property especially if you like waterfalls, scenic views, cascading streams, and goat trail bluffs. The Tanner Pool is especially popular after a heavy rain, Bluff Trail offers a nice perch for viewing the river below, and the 1+ mile "circuit trail" is a great way to start one's day. Our place is a bit rough, rugged and unruly yet we call it home -- a place where everyone regardless of race, gender identity, sexual orientation, ability, political views, religion, national origin, or culture is welcomed to come enjoy nature's marvelous works and wonders. So we invite you to come down to the Cadron and sit a spell. Unwind. Kick back. And enjoy! BTW: Those that find our campground a good fit and leave us a welcoming review are invited to return as a "friend of the Cadron" and receive 20% off on future reservations.

Third visit...and will return
I love the island at Pinnacle Springs Campground. So peacefully beautiful and as close to the water as is wise to pitch a tent. John is an outstanding host who is very knowledgeable about the area. He was my guide for the Healing Springs hike and Cove Creek hike...and delivered firewood (which I did not ask or expect him to do).

Pinnacle Springs Cabin
Very rustic cabin by lovely creek
Cute and spacious, but very rustic cabin next to a beautiful creek with good deep swimming holes. It was quite chilly when I visited so didn’t get to enjoy swimming, I’ll have to go back sometime when weather is warmer. Had some trouble finding the cabin because I arrived after dark and there are no signs or lights at all to guide one to the site.

What a joy it was to spend the night next to the creek! This was one of the easiest locations I've yet experienced, in terms of communications, and arrangements for arriving and staying. Highly recommended!

This was our second stay at Pinnacle Springs. John is a fantastic host and we had a great time. The land is beautiful and the other campers were great. Our neighbor to the left let us borrow their axe to split wood and then we shared what we had split with our other neighbors. It was a little community for the weekend. Spot #9 had plenty of space for our family to set up 3 2 tents and it was close to the sand by the creek so our kids could build sand castles while we relaxed or worked at camp. ☺️

Beautiful spot.
This was a great spot for a couple of relaxed days. The dog loved her walks down to the water and through the woods.
