Cameron Bluff Campground

 

The Cameron Bluff Campground at Mount Magazine State Park offers 18 campsites (including two Class AAA sites and 16 Class AA sites with 30 amp electric, water, and sewer hookups. The two Class AAA sites (sites #3 and #5) also include 50 amp service.  The Class AA sites include "tent only" reduced rate options.  Each site features a large tent pad, picnic table, upright and ground grill, and light pole.

Site #7 is a barrier-free ADA campsite. Paved parking areas range from 47 to 75 feet in length and are generally very level. Most of the sites will allow for awnings and pull-outs on each side of the camping unit. The bathhouse in the campground offers hot showers and flush toilets. It is open throughout the year.

The campground is located in a wooded area north of Signal Hill, at 2,753-feet its the tallest point in Arkansas. Camping here is especially popular during summer because of the mountain's cooler temperatures which are usually 10 degrees cooler than in the valleys below. Another advantage to camping on the mountain is that mosquitoes are a rarity here.

When the campground is full, campers may choose from two overflow camping areas at the Brown Springs picnic area and the horse camp.

Campers must register at the park visitor center before occupying a site.

Mount Magazine Horse Camp

This camping space for tents and horse trailers is within the state park. It is currently undeveloped, but in the future it will offer up to 21 modern campsites for campers with horses. Located at the entrance to the Huckleberry Mountain Horse Trail managed by the USDA Forest Service, this site provides a great starting point to explore the 34-mile trail system.
