Overview

Cricket Creek is a spacious and sunny campground located along the Long Creek Arm of Table Rock Lake in the Arkansas countryside. With panoramic views of the lake and the rocky bluffs, which rise above the water, Cricket Creek is one of the more scenic campgrounds in the area. Cricket Creek is very popular in the spring months of April & May, & has become very busy in the summer months as well. This is a great setting for visitors and campers to relax and enjoy the lake.

Recreation

A full-service public marina located at the campground offers everything from boat rentals to tubes, water skis and wakeboard rentals. Fisherman can purchase a license here and fuel up for a day on the water.

While the lake boasts an abundance of crappie, catfish, and bluegill, Table Rock is most famous for bass, and is acclaimed as one of the best bass fishing lakes in this hemisphere.

Scuba diving is also a popular activity in the crystal clear lake waters, which offer high visibility and plenty of underwater excitement, including the remnants of a submerged town and grove of old oak trees.

For an indoor activity, visitors may enjoy a trip to the Dewey Short Visitors Center where 3 educational films are offered on topics including, the history of the dam, the story of Lewis and Clark and the history of eagles and their endangerment in the state of Missouri.
