Arlie Moore Day Use

Degray Lake

Arlie Moore Campground and Day Use Area sits on the northern banks of DeGray Lake in the foothills of the Quachita Mountains. 

Hikers find Arlie Moore particularly inviting. In past years, the National Recreation Reservation Service selected the Arlie Moore Interpretive Trail as one of America's Top 25 Hiking Trails.

Arlie Moore offers a mix of RV, standard and tent-only campsites, each with electric hookups. Other amenities include flush toilets, heated showers, a boat ramp, swimming beach, interpretive trail, and a reservable group use shelter.

The Arlie Moore Interpretive Trail is located in the Arlie Moore Recreation Area. The trail is a double segment loop, approximately 1.3 miles (2.2 kilometers) in length. The trail meanders through a mature southern pine forest. In 2002, the trail was rehabilitated in large part due to a partnership grant from ALCOA.
