HEBER SPRINGS, Ark. – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Greers Ferry Project office will continue to offer camping opportunities through the winter from Nov. 1, 2019 through March 14, 2020.

Winter campsites with electricity and flush toilets will be available at Dam Site, John F. Kennedy, Devils Fork, and Choctaw Parks.  These campsites will be available on a first come first served basis and camping fees will be collected. 

Hill Creek, Narrows, and Sugar Loaf Parks will offer a limited number of campsites without power for visitors that like a more primitive camping experience.

Vault restrooms will be open at these parks throughout the winter and camping is free. 

All boat ramps around Greers Ferry Lake are open year round.

New for 2020 Camping Season:  Beginning in November, all campsites in Heber Springs Park will be reservable and customers will be able to reserve a campsite the same day they plan to camp.

Also, reservations can be made at John F. Kennedy Parks starting March 15, 2020 instead of April 15.  Reservations can be made six months in advance.

Reserve your campsite online at, by calling 1-877-444-6777, or at the campground gatehouse when the park attendant is on duty.
