Camping near Eureka Springs, AR

Unfortunately, not for the Hillbilly Dual Sport Tour, but, I am looking for some camping near Eureka Springs, AR. Anywhere within 20-25 miles is fine. Looking for something quiet, off the beaten path if possible, scenic, and non KOA (just to loud in my experience), and could be classified as Hammock friendly, which means it has trees and stuff so I don't have to sleep on the ground.

Thanks in advance.

We sure do like Roaring River State Park, it's nice and quiet. Campground 1 dead ends in a valley, it's one of our favorite places to go.

It's not far from Eureka and a good ride.

You can also camp at Withrow Springs State Park just south of Eureka just off Hiway 23. Electric and full hook ups are available.

Or you can camp at Lake Leatherwood which is a Eureka Springs City Park which is just west of ES. It has a modest campground, no electric and is somewhat primitive but does have flush toilets.

Or if you prefer to camp in town. There is Wanderlust Campground. It is an RV park but they've been known to let tent campers there is you are staying in a tent.

If you are hanging a hammock. You might want to do the Mcellroy Forest just east of ES. Primitive, quiet and remote but close to town.

Or you could camp Turpentine Creek Wildlife Refuge in their campground. Scotty is a rider and sponsor the Arkansas 500 so he is all about dual sporters.

Or, there is Kettle Campground in town.

There is also a KOA if it comes to that.

Nuff? If you need more information pm me and I will shoot you my phone number.

State Park at the Beaver Lake spillway. Busch Ark. In the Summer it's noon before the tent dries out.

If the weather has been wet. However, if not you'll do more dragging than paddling

Thanks to everyone for their input. Some great looking spots there. Now, if it would just hurry up and get warmer, I'd be all set.

Question Hot

If it's hot we like to camp on this little peninsula, because there is always a breeze off the water no matter the wind direction.
