Overview

Overview

Merrisach Lake Campground faces Merrisach Lake and the Arkansas Post Canal in the lush forest of eastern Arkansas. The campground is described as off the beaten path, providing visitors with the peace and quiet to enjoy fishing, picnicking and boating.

Natural Features:

The Arkansas Post Canal creates a waterway from the Arkansas River to the White River, and Merrisach Lake stems from the pool between the Wilbur D. Mills Dam and Lock Number 2.

The overall region considered Wilbur D. Mills Pool boasts 96 miles of shoreline and 10,600 acres of water.

Recreation:

This quiet campground offers visitors the perfect amount of seclusion to enjoy excellent fishing and boating. World-class bass and crappie fishing is found in Pool 2, and the tailwaters of the dam provide excellent opportunities to catch catfish.

Merrisach sits on the famed Mississippi Flyway, where millions of songbirds, ducks, geese and butterflies pass during migration.

Facilities:

Campsites are spacious, with a few backing right up to the river. Most sites offer electric and water hookups. Additional amenities include hot showers, a playground, boat ramp and dump station. Two large group picnic shelters are available, and can accommodate up to 75 guests each.

Nearby Attractions:

The White River National Wildlife Refuge is a haven for wildlife and migratory birds, and is one of the largest remaining bottomland hardwood forests in the Mississippi River Valley.
