St. Francis National Forest

Arkansas State Parks

More than 3.1 million acres of forestland are included within the three national forests in Arkansas. The U.S. Forest Service has developed campgrounds of scenic points in these woodlands. Most of these campgrounds are located in ruggedly beautiful mountainous terrain, and are designed to blend into the landscape to preserve the forest atmosphere.
