Thread: Bull Shoals-White River State Park, Ark.

  1. #1

    Bull Shoals-White River State Park, Ark.

    This is a 5 star campground especially for tenters. Great level fully shaded tent pads, big heavy picnic tables, fire pit with grate, charcoal grill, lantern pole and very nice clean shower house close to any site. CG was patroled hourly it seemed like. Cheap too, only $11 a nite.
    My wife and I stayed here in the Aspen the end of June while riding some of the great Ark. roads. Unbelievable how little traffic there was. We would ride sometimes for 40 miles and may meet only 4 or 5 cars. While riding Push Mtn. Rd. (24 m.) we met 2 cars. There were lots of deer though.
    Take your fishing equipment. Lots of trout in the White River right by camp.
    Have to give kudos to the Edellwiess Motel in Eureka Springs. Very clean and big room for only $50(including tax) a nite. We stayed there one evening after watching a show ( The Great Passion Play). It was about 90 miles back to camp. Too far to go at 10:30 p.m.
    It was fairly hot and humid this time of year but still a nice trip.

    Arkansas State Parks web site. Good information and links to the rest of the Arkansas State Park system.

    Oh yeah, 341 (Push Mtn. Rd.) is one of my Fav-O-Rite roads.
    I've ridden the 400 mile round trip more than once just to ride that 24 mile road.

    Yes that is a great campground...very well maintained... but sorry to say the Passion play has closed...and they turned the light out at the Christ of the Ozarks...sad...the White River goes right through the town of Batesville where I live but you were camped about 85 miles from me...long river...but yes lots of good trout fishing... but Push Mountain is only about 50 miles from me...great ride...

    this area has been a destination point for my family since the 1920's

    my grandfather discovered it when dad was still in diapers(literally) and just kept going back

    campgrounds are plentiful

    fishing is WORLD CLASS

    THE OZARK FOLK CENTER can keep you busy for several days, at a time

    antique stores & junk shops are everywhere

    MUSIC seems to be linked to almost every facet of life, in the area

    did I say THE SCENERY IS AWESOME ?

    shiny side up

    X10 here! Me and my BIL motorcycle/tent camped here the first week in December/2012.I believe we had site #41,straight across from the MANSION on top of the mountian across the river.What a beautiful,well maintained park.Nice showers and sites.Had a little storm come thru,so we moved our bikes over to the pavillion and had our own little party.We had a great time! Here's a couple pics of me setting up camp.
