Horseshoe Bend Campground - Search Nearby - Added by Jon King

Spend the night along the shores of Beaver Lake. With plenty of outdoor activities nearby, be sure to bring your trail shoes and Kayak if you've got one!

The campground has several sites along the shores of Beaver Lake. Its restrooms are clean and include free hot showers. The campground does not provide firewood. However, you are allowed to pick firewood from the surrounding woods. If there has been recent rainfall you’ll need to buy firewood prior to arriving. Campsites run $20/night and can be reserved at recreation.gov. Check out the map and choose a site near the water.

Make sure to bring your water gear! Beaver Lake is beautiful and worth exploring. We were able to easily launch our kayaks from the shore of our campsite (site #110 if you were curious).

There are several hiking opportunities in Hobbs State Park located on the southeast side of the lake. If you have time and are willing to venture out a bit, I’d suggest checking out the Buffalo National River area. Buffaloriver.com/ is an excellent resource showing what the area has to offer. It’s about a 1.5 hour drive from Horseshoe Bend, but well worth the trek.

How to get there:
Horseshoe Bend Campground is located on the western side of Beaver Lake in northwest Arkansas. For a reference point, the campground is approximately 8 miles east of Rogers, 25 miles north of Fayetteville and 40 miles southwest of Eureka Springs.

Poor Customer Service

I am currently staying at the Horseshoe Bend campground in Rogers, AR on site 158. I reported to the gate keepers yesterday that the 20amp GFCI circuit was tripped and wouldn’t reset. The gentleman who was at the gate told me he would go down and take a look at it. I was concerned because as I was explaining it to him he asked me if I meant the “little one”. I told him yes. I was headed back to work and told him I would be back out that evening. When I returned at 9:00pm, I noticed that my camper was dark and that my exterior light was off. I checked and sure enough he had turned off the 30amp breaker to my camper. I turned it back on and went inside. Sure enough it had been off all day and my fridge in turn was off. My freezer was defrosting and the bag of ice I had in it had leaked all over the floor and carpet. I went back to ask him why he had turned off the breaker and he told me that he hadn’t. That it must have tripped. I informed him that there is a difference in a tripped breaker and a turned off breaker because you have to reset a tripped breaker. I am in the construction trade and used to be an electrician by trade before I became a general contractor. I could see the look on his face that he knew he had forgotten to turn it back on. He then proceeded to tell me that I would need to plug into the other pole because that one wasn’t working. My cord wouldn’t come close to reaching. I then asked him if he turned it off because it wasn’t working and he said yes. So I asked him that if that was the case then why did he lie earlier when he said he didn’t and that it must have tripped. Needless to say I was pretty aggravated last night. I had to run back to town to get my shop vac so I could suck up the water and a fan to help dry out the carpet. Then I asked him if he had shut it down then why didn’t he call me since they have my phone number in the system when I checked in. He just said he was sorry and closed the door. I am a bit frustrated at all that. He has no business working on an electrical service if he isn’t licensed and is obviously incompetent if he wouldn’t even bother to call me after turning off my campers service knowing that people have fridges full of food in them.

We stayed here when doing the Shark Sprint Tri a couple yrs ago.

Absolutely Incredible; Will Be Stopping Here Again

Camped here with my buddy Alex, was really chill. We stayed in site 98 and had perfect access to the water and firewood, etc. very relaxing. Tent sites aren't open in the winter, but I set my tent right next to where I parked and it worked perfectly. Would highly suggest this campsite to anyone. Follow the directions listed, it leads you right to the entrance.
