You'll find the charming Joplin campground sitting on the edge of Ouachita Lake, and there's no bones about it -- it's one of the most beautiful campsites around! The fact that Joplin is located on a picture-perfect peninsula ensures that with every turn, the breathtaking views of the encircling Ouachita Mountains, river, and lake just get better and better. While you and your happy hound set up camp in this spectacular spot, you can make the most of the endless pawssibilities for fun and adventure that Joplin campground provides.
Not only is Ouachita Lake the biggest in the state, but it's also renowned for its crystal clear waters, so you know it's a mutts-visit for you and your barking bestie! While dogs are not allowed on the local designated swimming beaches, you can make waves together in other sections of the lake! If you don't fancy getting those paws wet, then you can bring Fido for a leashed stroll along the sparkling sand!
While staying at Joplin Campground, you and your precious pooch can also make the most of Ouachita National Forest, which is packed with heavenly hikes to explore! When you're not frolicking in the forest, you can head to Hot Springs National Park for a relaxing afternoon at the spa or bring your trail-loving tyke on some wondrous walkies. Whether you're heading out for a swim or a walk, don't forget to stock up on water and poop bags to help keep your hound hydrated and the area clean.
When you're not on an exciting excursion, you can chill out back at the camp, where you'll find hot showers, picnic tables, and fire rings to use. There's plenty of potable water for the campers, and a dumping station means this place is always tidy! If you're looking for somewhere that has struck the perfect balance between being a peaceful getaway and a haven for adventure seekers, then you'd be barking mad not to visit Joplin Campground!
