Camp at Richland Creek Campground

Richland Creek Campground - Search Nearby - Added by Noah West

A scenic drive will bring you to this awesome campground that is surrounded by waterfalls and overlooks. The trails range from beginner to advanced bushwhack.

This is one of my favorite places to camp in Arkansas. Once you get there you can hike to Twin Falls or Sandstone Castle, or explore the numerous cascades along Richland Creek. It's a relatively small campground with 11 campsites, but has a lot of places to hang hammocks and also offers a picnic area and bathrooms.

Getting there: Take Hwy. 16 east from Pelsor (located on Hwy. 7 between Jasper and Dover), past Pedestal Rocks Scenic Area, to Ben Hur. Continue past Ben Hur on Hwy. 16 for a mile and then turn left onto FR#1205/CR#68. Continue on this road for 9.4 miles until you reach the campground.

Beautiful, secluded area

I went to Richland Creek with a few friends last May. A cool front had just come through, so the water was a little cold for swimming, but the weather was great for hiking. Although we weren't able to find Twin Falls, we found a few other water falls by exploring the area. Some of the trails are easy to follow, while some of the trails appear to be rarely used. We went in the middle of the week, and only about half of the 11 campsites were occupied while we were there. It was a great experience that I would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a quiet place to camp and explore.
