Lake Norfork, Arkansas

Anyone know of a big rig friendly campground at Lake Norfork in Northern Arkansas? There are several COE parks, but most do not have 50 amp service or can accommodate 42 ft.

Thx, Spanky. Will check it out. Trying to hook up with friends in Gamaliel and really wanted somewhere on main lake near them. Appears the last one off the lake on Oct. 31st must turn out the lights - ha! COE's all shut down then. Apparently Norfork hasn't changed much since my parents took us back in the 1960's, except heard they replaced the ferry with a bridge...bummer, LOL.

On Lake Texoma, the COE's "close" late fall, but they really don't. They turn off the water to the sites, leaving only one water source in the park, other than the dump station. Also they don't have campground Hosts, but the reduce the daily cost to $12/day which becomes $6/day for seniors.

Of course electricity is still available. Great deal.

Super deal...we will call and see if Norfork COEs operate same way. Just can't imagine being totally closed until winter. Thx!

We live about 60 minutes from Beaver Dam COE campground in AR and to the best of my knowledge they are open all winter. They even have heated shower rooms available during the winter. I say shower rooms because you could take your whole family into the room and all take showers. The shower building has 4 of those rooms. They are heated as well. We have not been up there lately because of other commitments but this fall and winter and spring we will take advantage of them.
