Point 2

Please Note! We recommend calling each facility before coming to make sure it is open, and to make sure you can get a spot. This is not a complete list of all parks in the area, just the ones closest to our tour loops.

Quarry Park on the North Fork River - This is a large beautiful 71 site RV and camping park maintained by the Army Corps of Engineers. All drives and sites are paved. Several sites are on the river bank. Electric and non-electric campsites, dump station, playground with playsets, bathrooms, pavilions, picnic tables. A good boat launch allows boat access to the North Fork River. You can bank fish here, as well as along the park river bank. Right across the highway is America's largest trout hatchery, the Norfork National Fish Hatchery, open to the public for self-guided tours. Next to the hatchery is Dry Run Creek, perhaps the best place in America to take your child trout fishing. Norfork Lake access is 1/4 mile away at upper Quarry Park which has swimming, public boat launch, bathroom, pavilion, playground with volleyball and a playset. You can rent river boats at nearby trout docks. On Hwy 177 at the base of Norfork Lake dam, in Salesville, Arkansas.

Gatehouse - A small gatehouse is just inside the park entrance. From April 1st through September 15th it is staffed Thursdays through Mondays from 10am to 6pm. Volunteers may staff it at other times.

Leaping Trout - At Quarry Park is something that occurs in very few other places around the world. During October and November you can watch rainbow, brown, and cutthroat trout leap the Dry Run Creek waterfall. You can get right up close, even hear them slap into the rocks when they miss the water. Small crowds gather to cheer the trout on as it is an intense struggle for them. Leaping Trout Photos

Making Reservations - You can place reservations from May 15 to September 15 as far as six months in advance. The rest of the year a stay in the Park is on a first-come-first-served basis. In this area COE parks typically officially open from April 1st to September 15th. You can camp in the parks the rest of the year, but services are not turned on, and staff is not on site.

For reservations at Quarry Park you'll need to call Recreation.gov, or sign in to their web site. When using the Recreation.gov site use the name Dam Quarry on Norfork Lake in their search box. Be prepared for the reservation agents to know very little about the park since they've never been there. f you have specific questions you'll need to call the local U.S. Army Crops of Engineers Project Office in Mountain Home, Arkansas.

It is always a good idea to call the Mountain Home office before you leave home. Sometimes the parks are closed, or partly closed, due to high water.

The Recreation.gov site has a good online site-by-site reservation system with a very nice set of clickable features showing details for each site. There is also a good park map so you can see which sites are open for the dates you want. The map is helpful even if you don't want to make reservations.

Mountain Home COE office: 870-425-2700 8am to 4:30pm Monday-Friday.
