Description

John F. Kennedy Campground is nestled inside of the Ozark Mountains and is part of the broader Greers Ferry Lake Recreation Area. It's generally dog-friendly, although canines are forbidden from getting into any of the waters here. 

Camping is done via 73 total sites in John F. Kennedy, 13 of which feature electric and water hookups for overnight guests in a recreational vehicle. The rest of the sites offered here are electric only and are only suited for tents or popups. Guests can find bathrooms and coin-operated showers near the eastern edge of the campgrounds, as well as an RV dump station. If you bring your dog along for an overnight stay, make sure they stay in your tent, as stake leashes are forbidden. 

If you've got a boat, you're welcome to bring it with you for the trip as long as your vessel's registration is up-to-date. Greers Ferry Lake hosts all manner of watercraft both motorized and non-motorized, so make sure to get out on the waves during the warmer months. If you've got a canine, make sure they stay leashed up while you're enjoying the waves.

Fishing is a hugely popular pastime here, with several different species of fish being available to guests. Greers Ferry Lake hosts fishing throughout the year, provided guests have a valid Arkansas state fishing license. Visitors are free to bring their dog along for a fishing excursion, provided they're kept on a leash during their stay.

A public swimming area is located on a half-mile stretch of beach and is staffed with lifeguards during the warmer months. Dogs are prohibited from this area.

Make sure to check out the William Carl Gardner Visitor Center located on the surrounding park grounds, which has a children's play area as well as a full-scale replica of the largest fish ever caught in the area's Little Red River, a 40 lb. trout.

Canines are prohibited from all indoor structures located both in the campgrounds and the surrounding parklands.
