Camping

Campgrounds managed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers offer a wide range of facilities for visitors to choose from.  Most parks offer sites with electrical and water hookups and access to restrooms, showers, flush toilets, and sanitary dump stations.  Although season dates vary by park, most parks are open from April through October.  Campsite reservations may be made through the National Recreation Reservation Service online at http://www.recreation.gov/ or by calling 1-877-444-6777.

For a more rustic camping experience, Norfork Lake offers four primitive camping areas.  These areas are located at Jordan Island, Jordan Cove, Calamity Beach, and Kerley Point.  A permit for camping at these areas is required and is available from the Mountain Home Project Office.
