Due to our poor planning/timing we were not able to make it to the primitive camp ground because it started getting dark. So we took a dry creek bed about 100yards to the river and camped along the river at that point.

This is a fairly difficult trail due to the elevation changes and very narrow pathway along steep drop offs at certain places.

This was a very rewarding hike. The trail and surrounding areas are very scenic.

What a beautiful little camp site. Very secluded and when we went, we were the only ones there. So it felt like we had the place to our selfs.

Things to know when camping here-
It's primitive camping. No running water (other than the river), no electricity. Each site has a picnic table, a trash/latern pole, and a grill.
That's all u need really. But some folks need more than that.

The river is right there. About 20 yards from the sites. Beautiful and clean. Keep it that way.

There is one porta-potty style bathroom.

NO trash cans or dumpsters. You have to burn ur burn-able and/or bring up the road and to a store.
Please don't dump your trash on the side of a road like some others have done.

Keep this place as natural as u can. No Trace. Leave it like it was when u got there. Keep ARKANSAS Beautiful.

My family and I enjoyed this beautiful little slice of the ozarks.

Hope you do too!

Spring Creek is a nice primitive campground along Buffalo river. It was quiet and pleasant. No fee for camping. It would make a nice base camp for floating the Buffalo.
