Brady Mountain Campground delights visitors with its family-friendly facilities, fabulous views and idyllic placement on Arkansas's Lake Ouachita. The lake attracts visitors who come for the crystal clear waters and bountiful fishing opportunities.

Natural Features:

Lake Ouachita sits in the heart of the Ouachita Mountains, just 10 miles west of Hot Springs National Park.

The lake stems from the Ouachita River and boasts 690 miles of shoreline with over 200 islands.


A unique way to explore the lake is to follow the Geo-Float Trail, coined as the first water-based interpretive trail included in the National Trails System. The self-guided boat tour leads visitors on a 16-mile trip to see incredible geologic features as it stretches from the Spillway Recreation Area to Brady Mountain Recreation Area.

Hikers enjoy the scenic land-based nature trail accessible from the campground. Boating, fishing and scuba diving among the remains of the flooded mountain valley are also popular here.


Of the 74 sites, 57 have electric hookups. Other amenities include a dump station, fish cleaning station, hot showers, boat ramp, playground and a swim beach.

Nearby Attractions:

Head to Hot Springs National Park and enjoy a traditional bath or modern spa experience with the natural spring water.
