This is a beautiful state park at Lake Fort Smith - which is larger than I thought it would be. At the edge of the Ozark National Forest this place is great for family activities.

Once you find this place - you'll be glad you did. There are no tent campsites - you pay for and use an RV one. The wrong exit is marked on I49 and many GPS devices will direct you to where the state park USED...More

We were blown away by the lake and the wonderful, immaculate grounds. There was hardly anyone around when we visited. The views and amenities are wonderful. Definitely a place to visit and enjoy.

RV site good and level. Bath house clean and ready. Beautiful but no view of lake. No swimming in lake. Not suitable for biking because of hills. We liked our night there. Quiet and normal.
