Corps of Engineers camping is affordable outdoor fun for everyone
Beginning in the early 1940s, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers constructed dams on numerous tributaries of the Mississippi River in Arkansas. The resulting large lakes brought vast new stretches of open water that altered the state's scenery and expanded its natural recreation opportunities.
Today, Corps recreation areas located on those lakes offer ready access to a variety of camping, fishing, boating, sailing, water-skiing, swimming, scuba diving, bird watching, hiking and hunting opportunities. Corps of Engineers camping facilities range from primitive to paved pads with full hook-ups if you want to park your RV. Hot showers are also available.
User's fees are charged at many U.S. Army Corps of Engineers campgrounds, in some cases throughout the year and at others only during the recreation season. Reserving sites at these U.S. Army Corps of Engineers campgrounds is as easy as visiting www,Recreation.gov or calling 877-444-6777 (toll free).
