About Arkansas Bend Campground

Description

Arkansas Bend’s campground is located on a bluff that overlooks Lake Travis, so many campers will have a great sunrise view over the water. We should warn that ‘campground’ might be a bit lofty of a term; there are spots to camp here, sure, but that’s it.

Arkansas Bend’s campground is located on a bluff that overlooks Lake Travis, so many campers will have a great sunrise view over the water. We should warn that ‘campground’ might be a bit lofty of a term; there are spots to camp here, sure, but that’s it. All of your food, water, and firewood (if seasonal conditions allow for a fire—remember Smokey, friends) are going to need to be brought in because the campground has been kept primitive. We don’t mind that at all, though, because it’s helped to maintain the park’s natural beauty and keep from overdevelopment and overcrowding. Another way in which the campground is primitive: no reservations. Everything is on a first-come, first-served basis, as nature intended it—natural selection, camping of the fittest.

Camped here last night, I think it's the off season which made the camp site FREE. I arrived a bit late in the evening so I didn't get a chance to see each campsite. The campsite I chose had it's own fire pit, stepping stones to walk down to the Colorado river, a picnic table and hanging wire to hang clothes. There was a lot of cars driving to and fro which made the noise quite loud and headlights annoying. The campsite is spacious, leaving me options to decide to pitch my tent. Feel free to fish here and/or bring your boat. Despite the cars, this place is nice and quiet, letting the crickets, frogs and fish do the talking.
