Overview

Overview

Tompkins Bend on Lake Ouachita, is a great family camping destination. The combination of lush mountain scenery and roomy sites big enough for two camping units, make this quiet location an ideal place for an outdoor getaway.

Natural Features:

Lake Ouachita is fed from the cool waters of the Ouachita River in central Arkansas. Surrounded by the Ouachita Mountains and National Forest, it's crystal waters span 40,000 acres and extend for 30 miles, making it the largest lake completely in the state of Arkansas.

Recreation:

Water skiers, jet skiers and anglers can all enjoy the crystal clear waters of the lake, while hikers enjoy the campground's location on the Vista Trail, which meanders across the south end of the lake.

Wildlife enthusiasts can find everything from bobcats to black bears and deer in the forested mountains surrounding the lake, and Bald eagles are often spotted in winter.

Facilities:

The majority of campsites have electric hookups and 15 have water hookups as well. Most sites will accommodate two camping units. Other amenities include a dump station, fish cleaning station, hot showers, and a boat ramp. Programs take place at the amphitheater.

Nearby Attractions:

Head to Hot Springs National Park and discover how it earned the nickname, "The American Spa." Or take a scenic drive through the 1.8 million-acres of Ouachita National Forest. Here, off-roading enthusiasts can take on the Wolf Pen Gap Off-Highway Vehicle Trail System.
