What a treasure, Lake Fort Smith cabin rentals. These are recently constructed, well equipped, and located on a scenic lake. Forget your key and open your cabin door lock with the last four numbers of your telephone number. When you step inside you will put city problems out of your cabin. Firewood is waiting, modern plumbing, and dish tv all... More

You can reserve RV spots. This is a great advantage. The spots were very spacious. The bathrooms are very nice also.

Visitor Center, campsites, day-use area, marina, (everything!) is practically new and well maintained. All park staff we encountered were very friendly. The park is located in the rugged Boston Mountain area of the Ozarks and the scenery is beautiful. The lake was not as clear as I expected, but we were there shortly after a heavy rain.

This is an amazing campground. The facilities are top notch, the camp sites are perfect, smooth, well laid out and like new. We were able to rent a kayak and go on a two hour tour around a nearly empty lake (empty of people, not water!) The lodge is beautiful with a very nice back porch where you can sit... More

I took the kayaking tour across the lake with several other avid outdoors women . Made new friends and enjoyed a great first kayaking experience with a very knowledgable tour guide . Great day for some fresh air and relaxing on the water

On a whim, I loaded up bike and kayak and drove northwest for about an hour and twenty minutes, from my home yesterday. This wonderful state park rewarded me with friendly service and super clean, modern facilities, as well as a great lake for paddling around in my boat. I noticed that the park rents boats of all sizes and... More

Great 2 nite stay. We stayed in cabin #9 and it was great. The staff at the visitor center were friendly. Cabin #9 is a two bedroom 2 full bath. Lots of room and it has a large covered patio in the back.

For our family reunion we chose the Kingfisher Lodge. It turned out to be the perfect option. With 32 or so beds (and room for more sleeping bags on the floor fro small kids) it fit our family like a glove. In comparison to other state parks we've been to, it all seemed nearly brand new and very clean. On... More

Had a wonderful weeknight camping here! We have small children and they loved it too. Enjoyed walking trails and fishing. There were deer roaming around and other wildlife. There was a pool party Saturday night and we had a fun night there with friends! Very nice and super clean bathhouses. Great picnic area with great views. The only thing is... More
