One of the most picturesque campgrounds I've stayed at. The site has been heavily managed to accommodate rvs etc, however it has been done well. It was a new experience camping on a hard standing.. the tent pegs will go in with a bit of persuasion. The 4 bathrooms were very warm and recycling bins are provided.
I saw my first live Armadillo here :-)

This park obviously has a nice budget--it is one of the nicest, cleanest parks we've camped. There are only three tent campsites & a few RV sites, but on a Tuesday in August, the park only had a few sites reserved. Each site has a fire pit & grill, lantern tree, picnic table, water facet, & gravel area for pitching the tent. There are two unisex bathrooms with private showers in each. The view as the sun sets is gorgeous, & overall this park is a great place to relax. We hope to visit again & hike a few of the trails in the St. Francis National Forest.

Do not use a Sedan to drive through - beautiful place but make sure to visit during or before fall or after spring

If you are lucky you may see Otters on the banks of the campground.
