Recent Hipcampers say this Hipcamp is great for families and kids.
We are in love! With each and every guest. And nearly in tears with joy and fulfillment that our campground is so generously loved by so many people. Thank-you. Thank-you. Thank-you. 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!! NO! NO! NO! 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 in a riparian jungle. Camp in total solitude or camp with all your 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 even 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 Trail 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. We love everyone!! 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 always invited to return as a "friend of the Cadron" and receive 10% off on future reservations.

Tanner's I-40 Wilderness Escape
Great site!
We booked late and did not arrive until 10:30. But the instructions were clear and we were very happy with what we found, private secluded camping, It doesn't get much better than this. We looked around the next day and found a whole new reason to come back. Camp sites by the creek. WOW; we will be back. Would recommend highly to anyone 👌

Site 3 - Camp Toasty - Electric
Just me and my two dogs
Camp Toasty was perfect. Nice level grassy spots. Clean and well maintained. It was a very stormy weekend, so I had the whole place to myself. I was a little concerned about finding John's land, but his directions were good. I also ran google maps and it duplicated John's instructions. Good cell service. Electric available at site 3. I look forward to visiting again.

#3 - Creekside: Peachy Beach
Amazing! We live in maumelle and after work it would be super difficult to drive more than an hour. This spot is gorgeous, kept up incredibly, a great place to fish, etc etc. We will be coming here all the time ! Also John is so kind and very evidently loves nature/this property… he makes the stay very personal with his detailing of all the spots! We got to meet him briefly and he was so nice.

Perfect place to camp. Beautiful surroundings, but also comforts at the top of the hill should you need them (shower, place to buy firewood, maps, electricity and water). I am a middle age camper and am definitely not 20 anymore. John makes a point to check in with his campers to insure their needs are met which is peace of mind.

The Great Eclipse - Best Deal Ever!
Great primitive campground
We had an overflow site and it was lovely. Under tall evergreens with plenty of flat space for our tents. John and his staff were available, courteous and went out of their way to make sure we had what we needed. They had solar eclipse glasses for anyone that needed them. And the country music was fun. Was primitive camping. Outhouse, and had to go to the front gate for water. But that was clear on the website and for those of us who enjoy that type of camping. John 's campground is beautiful and I would recommend it to anyone.
