Choctaw Campground is located on the spacious Greers Ferry Lake nestled in the foothills of the Ozark Mountains.
In the 19th century, a city named Higden flourished where the lake now rests. The city suffered from frequent flooding and as a result a man-made lake was created for flood control of the area.
Today, the city's remains sit below the lake, enticing scuba divers and archeologists alike.
Whether a visitor prefers boating, water skiing, fishing, swimming or scuba diving, Greers Ferry Lake has it all. The river tributaries keep anglers entertained, as they produce some of the largest walleye in the world; the record breaker was a whopping 23 lbs.
In spring, the countryside becomes a photographer's paradise with wildflowers, redbud and dogwood trees in full bloom.
Choctaw Park has 91 sites with electric hookups and 55 non-electric.
Campers can enjoy the hot showers, group picnic shelter, boat ramp, playground, swimming area and public marina.
Greers Ferry Lake spans 30,000 acres of north-central Arkansas. The dam creating the reservoir stands at the foot of the beautiful Round Mountain, with water trickling through to the Little Red River.
Explore the quaint historic towns around the lake for shopping and dining.
The William Carl Garner Visitor Center is just west of the dam, with exhibits, a children's touch table, and a replica of the world record 40 lb. 4 oz. brown trout caught in the Little Red River downstream of the center.
