Lake life, happy life

Mountain Home, AR, United States
2 Kudos
We try to get in at least one good camping trip per summer with our kids. While we like nature, they crave action on the water. This summer we chose Norfork Lake near Mountain Home, Arkansas. We towed the camper and stayed at Dam Quarry Campgrpund just below the dam. We had the best of both worlds with the river stocked with trout right at our campsite, and the marina with a pontoon just a two minute drive away. With lots of tubing, skiing, swimming, s'mores making, and fishing, it was probably one of our better vacations. And my oldest hardly picked up her electronic device all week.
Story Details


Dam-Quarry Campground
Convenient to the marina, mostly shades, easy access to the river for fishing. Had full hook-ups and two playground areas.

Points of interest

Norfork National Fish Hatchery
Fun way to spend a little bit of time with the kids seeing the trout that are raised to be released into the river. Thousands and thousands of trout from the very tiny to the fully grown and ready to be released.


Quarry Marina
Rented a pontoon for four days. Staff was friendly, boat was ready every day. Marina parking lot was still under water from the spring floods, but we made it work.
