Ozark National Forest Campgrounds

The Ozark National Forest of Arkansas has a wide variety of developed camping locations, offering beautiful scenery, solitude, lake and river access, and unique features. Most of these campgrounds are located within or near rugged, mountainous terrain, and are designed to blend into their natural surroundings.

Most campgrounds within the Ozark NF offer primitive, tent camping sites. Some, however, do allow camping trailers, but usually no hookups are vailable. Many campgrounds do offer water spickets, and some even have dump stations as well. Also, you will find that some campgrounds have only vault toilets with no showers, while others have full bathroom/shower facilities. Most campgrounds have picnic tables and/or a pavilion.

The Ozark Highlands Trail passes through the Ozark National Forest, and many of the campgrounds are located along or very close to the trail, offering places to rest, camp, or provide for pickup/dropoff and shuttle access points.

Currently, there are more campgrounds within the Ozark National Forest than I have had time to photograph, gather information for, and list here. As soon as new information becomes available, and I am able to gather pictures, I will post those new trails here.
