Not far from Hot Springs the Angostura Rec. Area is a great place for camping or just for an afternoon in the sun. Admission is $6 per vehicle. Restrooms and a restaurant on site. Beach volleyball nets.

All sites have electrical but I'm 89% sure that none of them have water/sewer hook-ups. Kind of hard to expect them to for only $18 a night. They do have a couple dump stations within the park that you are able to fill with... More
