This area is brimming with outdoor activity! The Mulberry River is just a short walk away with all the fishing and paddling you want. There is a public launch with parking just across the road for floating access. Be on the OHT via the Indian Creek spur trail in no time. Byrds Adventure Center is 2 miles down the road for off-road fun, a general store, canoe rentals, and more. *Heads up especially if you are in a small car, it’s usually ok to go down the small hill but in wet weather it may become slick. If you’re not sure about making it back up, there is an area to park by the driveway :)

Absolute prime location. Couldn’t ask for a better spot. Kayaked all day and couldn’t be happier to go back to a nice quiet spot. You would think the hwy noise would bother you a little but it was hardly noticeable. Indian Creek drowned out everything.

Ozark National Forest Base camp
This was the perfect spot to spend a long weekend exploring Ozark National Forest.
The drive in was amazing, the location is perfect, and the campsite was versatile; well suited for many camping styles.
The campsite has great shade and is mowed nicely. The meadow surrounding it lends to its privacy. The creek that runs near it is awesome. Great for an afternoon dip, it leads directly to the Mulberry River.
We explored small towns, country roads, rivers, and trails in the area for 3 days and it was made most convenient and relaxing using Lewis’s quiet and perfect spot as our base camp.

Quaint and comfortable
Lewis' property is absolutely gorgeous and the drive in is stunning. Very easy to get to and the campsite is great! We had a wonderful stay and Lewis was a terrific host!!

Lewis’ land is wonderful! The stream behind the spot is so pretty. The trees are perfect for hammocks. And it’s so close to several fun hiking spots and right across the street from a kayak entry point on the river. I made a terrible choice to attempt camping on a freezing cold weekend and despite how prepared I thought I was I gave up leaving early, but Lewis was awesome and checked on me to make sure I was ok when I disappeared in the middle of the night. I will absolutely be back when the risk of freezing to death is a little lower.

This is a great location with a great host. Unfortunately the weather didn't cooperate with us and we had to leave early, but we will be back again.

Great Secluded Corner
A great secluded corner to stay deep in the forest. Easy access to trails and water. Lewis is a great host. Coming to the area? Camp here.

Gorgeous site and very kind host!
Lewis' site was absolutely beautiful! The drive through the forest to his site has a lot of switchbacks and dips. Once I arrived at the campsite, I was blown away by how gorgeous it was. My pup absolutely loved barreling through the fields and exploring the site. Lewis came down and greeted me shortly after I arrived. He'd put up a small shed, which I popped my tent under. It kept everything dry during the rainstorm on the first night! We departed earlier than expected due to my doggo not being as fond of camping in the wild as she was of the practice camping we did in my backyard. Absolutely no fault of Lewis' and I only wish we'd been able to stick it out and stay for more adventures.
Important Note: Bring bug spray and tick spray and if you have a pup, I'd highly recommend deer/horse fly spray that isn't toxic to them.

Welcome to the valley
Nice little secluded site close to Byrd’s Adventure Center and tons of beautiful places to hike! Lewis was a helpful host who gave us space but let us know he was there if we need anything!

Great host amazing stay in the wild
Our stay with Lewis was so amazing! We are avid campers and love the Arkansas Wilderness, Lewis’s land was perfect. Fishing,hiking, stars galore. Lewis was a great host even messaged us when we were gone for the day to let us know the wind took down our canopy. It was very private. There is no phone coverage or WiFi which was just what we wanted to get away. I highly recommend this sweet spot.

Basic camp spot that is very close to Byrd’s Adventure Park in the Ozark National Forrest.
