Winding Stair Campground

Visitors enjoy the peaceful setting of this campground located within three miles of several trail systems, including Horsethief and Billy Creek Trails.  The Mountain-top Trail has a one-mile loop and a two-mile loop adjacent to the campground.  The 192-mile Ouachita National Recreation Trail passes the campground as it extends from Talimena State Park in Oklahoma to Pinnacle Mountain State Park in Arkansas.

This campground is one of many attractions along the Talimena Scenic Byway, a 54-mile highway winding along the crests of Winding Stair and Rich Mountains.

Emerald Vista, north of this campground, boasts a birds-eye view of the Ouachita National Forest from atop the Scenic Byway. Picnic tables are available.

A backpacker’s camp, located about 300 feet west of the main campground, is open year-round.  Facilities include five tent pads, table, fire ring, lantern poles and pit toilet.
