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

Lake Fort Smith has some beautiful campsites that blend so seamless into the natural surroundings! This part is well maintained, and it is a new park after the dam was built creating the Lake off of the historical Shepherd Springs spillway.

I agree with other tripadvisors; this is a neat place to stay. Stayed in a one bedroom cabin 3 nights end of October 2013. The cabin was great had all things we needed. appliances looked new; the combination kitchen/living room area was spacious ;liked the flat screen TV. We sat out on the deck of cabin to drink our coffee.... More

We've never been to a campground quite like this one. There's something for everyone. We hiked, biked, kayaked and did a 6-mile run...oh yeah, and we chilled. We are tent campers and are 60ish-somethings. The maintenance of this park, which opened in 2008, is incredible. Bathrooms are as clean as any public facility we've ever seen. The temperature of the... More

This is our second trip out to Lake Fort Smith. We stayed in the 2 br cabins. They were an absolute joy to stay in. Everything you need from pots and pans to dishes. It is a drive to get supplies as the gift shop has a very limited supplies. It is quiet and there are lots of deer to... More
