  • We are enjoying our stay it is over the Christmas holidays so things are very slow here out of possible 30 spaces only 10 are occupied . They are having a Christmas party at the visitor center on Christmas Eve. The sites are all level look like they been upgraded and very nice. The restrooms are clean and well taken care of. Overall a very enjoyable stay at this state park
  • Taps for clean potable water, parking, a cute visitor centre with exhibits and theme depicting life of early settlers 200 years ago; clean restrooms, and nice trails! Also of course the lake itself. Great place. Please go off road via Shepherd Springs Road! Also car-fiendly drive into the woods. Totally worth it! I loved the fall foliage.
  • Ozark National Forest: Lake Fort Smith, Arknsas: 28 Oct 2017 Backpacking in the Ozark National Forest in Arkansas from Lake Fort Smith State Park to White Rock Mountain Campground/Recreation Area. Beautiful area with plenty of areas to camp along the trail, if you didn't want to go to a campground. Hiking through the mountains of Arkansas is definitely a challenge but it was a lot of fun.
  • A beautiful place nestled in a valley in the Boston Mountains. Several trailheads are located here. Many services in the summer.
  • Great place to camp and enjoy the nice scenery. The lake is beautiful and the trees are looking good. Nice visitors center with lots of goodies.
