Overview

Waveland Park Campground is located on the beautiful Blue Mountain Lake near Waveland, Arkansas.

Visitors are greeted with shaded campsites, spectacular scenery and many outdoor recreation opportunities. Blue Mountain Lake provides the ideal spot to get away from it all, relax and enjoy fishing, boating, hunting, hiking and more.

Natural Features:

Blue Mountain Lake is situated in the shadow of Mt. Magazine, the highest mountain in Arkansas and the tallest between the Rockies and Alleghenies.

Farmland, rolling green mountains and two national forests surround the lake, adding to the natural beauty of the area. The lake shore consists of mixed pine and hardwood forests, wetlands and grasslands, which provide habitat for many native wildlife species.

Recreation:

Families, anglers, boaters, hikers, water skiers and hunters are drawn to the lake for its recreational activities. Forests around the lake are also open to hunting.

The river channel through Waveland Park Campground provides prime bank fishing opportunities for crappie, largemouth and white bass, bream and catfish.

Families can make use of the playground and the shady, cypress tree-lined swimming area, as well as the amphitheater, which provides educational programs.

There are also several trails available, including Tower Heights Trail, a 1.5-mile trail at the entrance of the campground. This trail traverses the ridge and affords hikers majestic views of Blue Mountain Lake and Mt. Magazine.

The Blue Mountain Wildlife Demonstration Area on the west end of the lake has a world-class bird dog field trial area that attracts visitors from throughout the United States and several other countries. Anyone may use the facilities to train dogs.

Facilities:

Visitors can select from 38 shaded campsites with electric and water hookups, as well as one group picnic shelter for day use that can accommodate up to 150 people.

Additional amenities include hot showers and a dump station. Anglers and boaters are attracted to the boat ramp and fish cleaning station.

Nearby Attractions:

The lake is situated between the Ozark and Ouachita National Forest, and Mt. Magazine State Park is within a 30-minute drive. Additional information for local attractions is available at chambers of commerce in nearby towns.
