“Great RV Camping Spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2014

We stayed a weekend at Withrow Springs and plan to return soon now that the pool is open. It is a lovely campground. The hiking trails are beautiful and not too long for a family with younger kids. The river is a great place to canoe and swim, but if prefer clean, chlorinated swimming, there is a pool. There is also a little stocked fishing hole, and really nice picnic areas for use even if you are just coming for an afternoon. Full hookups and level sites are nice. Lots of shady spots too. There is no cell service in the camp...and just barely at the park gift shop/office so be prepared to be mostly unplugged. The kids rode their bikes, we hiked in the trails, and relaxed. The Park Rangers organized kid and family activities most evenings we were there.

“Camping in the Natural State”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2014

We camped here for a week and had an enjoyable stay. The State Park camping fees are very reasonable. The RV sites are nice and roomy with full hook-ups. Plenty of nature to enjoy during your stay, with hiking trails, picnic areas, and a playground area for children. No cell phone or wi-fi access. Great location for 'day trips' to Eureka Springs. One warning - if you are not familiar with chiggers, you will be after camping here during mid-spring to early summer. Take plenty of insect spray.

“Great Campsites”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

These campsites are some of the nicest we've seen. They each offer privacy, concrete pads, gravel under your metal picnic table and a nice shower house. There are only 30 sites. There is one nature trail near the campground but otherwise, the campground is located a ways from the entrance, etc. The spring was not flowing when we were there and what they called a fishing pond was a small mossy spot that couldn't be more than a foot or two deep. It is a lovely well maintained park but very small. We drove to the War Eagle Access and walked the trail along War Eagle Creek. I strongly recommend that but its not for those that have a fear of heights or can do some rugged terrain. If those things don't bother you, this trail offers some great views and was a fun climb along some rock bluffs. There is even a cable to help you in some of the steeper areas. Anyway, this makes for a nice stop on your way to something else but doesn't offer a lot to do on its own. We did take the drive to see the elk nearby and that was worth the trip if you are into elk but bring binoculars.

“Nature at it's finest”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

It's a short drive from Eureka but it is well worth it. They have a nice visitor center and pool. There are several hiking trails too. Great place for an afternoon picnic.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

This is a lovely park near Huntsville. It has a large swimming pool, wonderful picnic areas and really pretty camping areas. Great for a day trip picnic or a week of camping.
