A campers Heaven on earth and it's here in Arkansas!

This Might Just Be The Most Beautiful Campground In All Of Arkansas

There are an awful lot of campgrounds in the Natural State, probably because Arkansans love camping so much. How would one even choose between all those gorgeous campsites? Which one really is the most beautiful? I’m going to make an argument that the most beautiful campground in Arkansas might just be Steel Creek Campground near the Buffalo National River.

This campground has 26 tent sites that you can use for $10 a night during peak camping season, but it’s free from mid-November to mid-March. Around the bend about a quarter mile, you’ll find 14 horse camping sites where you can bring your trusty steed. There are also two different bathroom facilities. You can find directions to the campground here.

Even from a distance you can see the most prominent feature of Steel Creek Campground—Roark Bluff.


The scenic beauty and recreation opportunities are practically endless, but the major draw of Streel Creek Campground is that it’s just steps away from the Buffalo National River.


During rainy periods, you’ll even see a spectacular waterfall cascading from Roark Bluff.

The area surrounding Steel Creek Campground is extraordinary. There simply isn’t an ugly spot anywhere nearby.

The campground is just a little ways downstream from this gravel bar, which sits under Bee’s Bluff.

The gorgeous campground is the perfect place to hang out with your significant other, family, or friends. Including your four-legged friends, as long as you have a leash.

Can you imagine falling asleep to a view like this?


And then waking up steps away from all this gorgeousness?

There’s really no bad place to camp along the Buffalo River...

...but Steel Creek Campground has to be one of the best places to camp in the whole of the Natural State.

There might be campgrounds as beautiful as Steel Creek, but there simply aren't any more beautiful.
