We enjoyed our stay at the Ponds. We stayed at Site D. There are 3 other sites; 2 were in use while we were there. We felt we had sufficient privacy. Barbara was a kind and generous host. We had a great time viewing the total eclipse.. We stayed 2 nights and would stay again if we needed a spot with hookups. Hot Springs NP is about 40 minutes away.

site D
We spent two nights at Barb and Ward's; the property is beautiful, and the sites/amenities were well thought out. We arrived later than we intended, but Barb and Ward greeted us with an eclipse goody bag (which was seriously impressive) upon arrival and helped us get situated. Although we spent almost all of our time hiking at Hot Springs and Lake Catherine, it was a real treat to come back to camp at night. The strategic yet unassuming lighting coupled with the crickets and frogs makes it feel like you're in some magical fairy glen. Having never been to Arkansas before, we checked out several other camps for fun, and we will definitely be going back to The Ponds over any other place. If you want to be able to relax in peace after a day of hiking, I highly recommend The Ponds.

This is a beautiful spot. The hosts greeted us with a care package that included makings for s’mores and info about the local area. Super nice! If you want a peaceful spot to come back to this is it. We have a 20 ft airstream that we pull with an Audi Q7. The road leading to the property is gravel and had some steep sections and pretty big pot holes. We made it but had to go very slow. We stayed in spot A which we liked but it took all of our leveling gear to get the trailer level. Once set up though it was great! The view over the ponds is so pretty and we saw deer every day. The hosts are very responsive and very welcoming. It is clear that they want you to enjoy your time here. Once you get past the entry road and set up you will love it!
