  • Nice little lake. Very well kept. I am from Texas and have been in Arkansas for the summer. Have visited Lake Sylvia 3 times. After my experience today, I will not be back. Two women were there with.....  more »
  • They have top notch customer service and the food was absolutely delicious. Definitely will return even though it is so far away from home. Well worth it.
  • I give Lake Sylvia a10. Park staff a 1. I too have been put off by the current park ranger. The man who was there for a long time, Shawn?, now he knew his stuff! He didnt cram 'the RULES' in your face. I worked for State Parks in El Dorado, at the Arboretum. Thousands of folks came through the gates. I had to use my position to enforce 'the rules' a few times over the years, (like no plastic grass during the annual Easter Egg Hunt, bad for the critters and Earth) or safety issues that would arise, i.e. sleet, lightning, etc. However, rudeness was never part of my job.
  • I have been going to this lake since i was a little girl. I love everything about it. It's peaceful.
  • DOG OWNERS BE WARNED! The park is fabulous however the staff leave something to be desired. After driving an hour to spend the day with my dad on his birthday, the extremely rude park ranger would not allow our dog in the park; not even allowing him to sleep in the car the entire time. I understand rules in that they have to be enforced but a park ranger could have been more genteel about it.
  • Nice place, beautiful Forest, quiet campground usually
