The park also has 35 "Class B" campsites ($17) with water and electricity, and five "Tent" sites ($13) with water hookups available at each site.

There's no scenic water in the park, but the Ouachita National Forest and Cossatot River are within a few hours drive. Lake Wilhelmina is also nearby. Lake Wilhelmina is an Arkansas Game and Fish Commission facility. It's 300 acres in size, and is know as one of the best bluegill and redear lakes.
