Overview

Oak Grove Campground sits along the shores of DeQueen Lake in southwest Arkansas.

Natural Features:

DeQueen Lake is part of a dam project located on the Rolling Fork River. The dam, completed in 1977, was built for flood control and water supply, and now provides a recreational oasis for thousands of campers each year.

The lake boasts 32 miles of shoreline to its visitors, along with 8,700 acres of rolling green landscape.

Recreation:

Boating and water sports top the list of recreational actives at the lake, and several boat ramps are provided for campers.

Fishing is also a popular pastime, with large mouth bass, small mouth bass, spotted pass, black and white crappie, channel and flathead catfish and various species of sunfish available in abundance. The Arkansas Game and Fish Commission have also stocked hybrid striped bass in the lake.

There are plenty of opportunities for hunting on the lands around the lake. Except for developed recreation areas and lands in the vicinity of the dam, all project lands are open to the public for hunting. Game species include bobwhite quail, mourning dove, turkey, fox squirrel, gray squirrel, cottontail rabbit and deer.

Although DeQueen Lake does not have a designated hiking trail, the vast expanse of land is open to the public and hiking activities are welcomed anywhere on project lands.

Facilities:

Oak Grove Campground offers 36 spacious campsites, along with one large reservable group picnic shelter. Campsites include modern amenities like flush toilets, showers and drinking water.

Nearby Attractions:

The nearby town of DeQueen, Arkansas, offers gas, grocery and medical services.
