Overview

Dam Quarry Campground is an angler's paradise. Located in northern Arkansas, just downstream of the Norfork Dam, the campground is renowned for its world-class trout fishing.

The Norfork Lake region was one of the state's first water recreation areas with opportunities like water skiing, canoeing, scuba diving, and of course, fishing.

Natural Features:

The campground sits at the banks of the North Fork River and Dry Run Creek. The river feeds the popular 22,000-acre Norfork Lake, which is just upstream from Dam Quarry. The site has beautiful views of the forested hills and hollows of the Ozarks.

Recreation:

While fishing is the top-rated activity in the lower river area, kayaking, birding and hiking are also very popular.

The public land around Norfork keeps hunters busy with white-tailed deer, wild turkey, squirrel, rabbit and quail.

Facilities:

Kids will enjoy the playground and everyone will find fun in the water. A boat ramp is on-site and a marina is located just above the dam. Everything but the group sites have electric hookups.

Nearby Attractions:

A short drive south takes visitors to the Ozark National Forest for sightseeing and wildlife spotting. The campground is also just three miles northeast of the small town of Norfork.
