Springhill Park campground can be found amidst the rolling plains of central Arkansas. This area tends to be fairly tolerant of pets and offers a diverse array of camping options.
Fishing is popular in the adjacent John Paul Hammerschmidt Lake, which offers the sport throughout the year. Species found here include bream, catfish, and crappie, and during the colder months, sauger. If you're coming to catch your dinner, make sure you bring your gear as no rental services exist here. Arkansas requires that all fishers have an up-to-date fishing license before dropping a line, which can be found at the Springhill Park offices as well as many local sporting goods stores. If you'd like to keep your dog with you as you try your luck in the waters, that's fine, provided they stay on some sort of restraint throughout the length of your stay.
47 total sites offer standard modern amenities like electrical hookups and potable water faucets, but guests should take note that no full hookup sites exist here. Public restrooms are located centrally, as well as shower facilities and a playground for young ones. A dump station is found at the southern edge of the park, which means guests in recreational vehicles should have an easy time making camp. Four high-capacity, covered picnic shelters are located here as well. These pavilions are available on a first-come-first-served basis, so make sure to call ahead if you're looking to have an event. Canines are allowed on the campgrounds as long as they're kept on a leash throughout their stay and are kept clear of any indoor structures.
Hiking is available here as well, weather permitting. For more information on these trails, make sure to grab a free trail guide at the camp's main offices. These trails are also open to bicycles, so any visitors on foot should keep an eye out for fast-moving cyclists. Canines are permitted on the trails as long as they're restrained, and guests pick up any debris their pets might leave behind.
Note: Costs listed here are for primitive sites only. Sites featuring electrical hookups and other amenities vary between $18 and $20. None of this campground pricing includes admission fees to any surrounding parks or monuments.
