River Road

Nimrod Lake



River Road Campground is located near the Fourche LaFave River and Nimrod Dam, with plenty of outdoor recreation opportunities like fishing, boating, and seasonal hunting. Facilities include 21 campsites, a boat ramp, picnic shelter, and playground. Nimrod Dam provides a recreational oasis for visitors to enjoy. Nearby attractions include Petit Jean State Park, Mount Nebo State Park and Hot Springs National Park.


River Road Campground sits along the shores of Fourche LaFave River and Nimrod Dam, cradled between Arkansas' Ouachita and Ozark Mountains. Visitors are greeted with shaded campsites, beautiful scenery and many outdoor recreation opportunities. Nimrod Lake provides the ideal spot to get away from it all, relax and enjoy yourself.


Fishing is one of the most popular activities at the lake, with an abundance of crappie, largemouth bass, catfish and bream available. Boating, water skiing and tubing are also popular, with 11 boat ramps conveniently located around the lake, however, skiing and tubing are only allowed from the tip of Carden Point eastward toward the dam because areas west of there are too hazardous. Campers are likely to spot white-tailed deer, eastern wild turkey, bobwhite quail, squirrel, rabbit, fox, mink, black bear, dove and waterfowl in the area. Seasonal hunting is also permitted throughout the forested area around the lake, except in or near recreation areas.


With 21 spacious and modern campsites (15 campsites in the River Road Loop and 6 campsites in the Project Point Loop) and one large day use group picnic shelter, River Road Campground has plenty of room for the family. A boat ramp into the river and playground are also provided.

Natural Features

Nimrod Dam was completed in 1942 as part of a comprehensive plan for flood control and development of water resources in the Fourche LaFave River. Although recreation was not part of the initial mission of the dam project, the lake and surrounding 21,000 acres of pristine land have now become a recreational oasis for outdoor enthusiasts.
