Overview

John F. Kennedy Campground is located on the Little Red River just downstream of Greers Ferry Dam in the beautiful Ozark Mountains of north-central Arkansas.

In his last major appearance before his death, President John F. Kennedy stood on a flag-draped platform overlooking the just-completed Greers Ferry Dam and spoke of the prosperity the lake would bring to the region.

Today, a million visitors flock yearly to the scenic waters for family camping, fishing, boating and hiking.

Recreation

Greers Ferry Lake is an outdoor enthusiasts’ dream, with boating, sailing, water skiing, swimming, scuba diving and fishing opportunities. Hikers enjoy the area’s three National Nature Trails and one multi-purpose, fitness trail.

The William Carl Gardner Visitor Center is just west of the dam, with exhibits, a children’s touch table, and a replica of the world record 40 lb. 4 oz. brown trout caught in the Little Red River downstream of the center.

Facilities

This campground offers 73 sites with electrical hookups, 13 of which also have water hookups. Additional amenities include flush toilets, showers, a dump station, picnic shelter and a boat ramp.

Natural Features

A dense mix of red cedar, black gum, red oak, elm, pecan and sweet gum trees forest the area, providing shade in the summer months and beautiful fall colors in autumn.

Wildlife is plentiful around Greers Ferry Lake. Visitors commonly see white-tailed deer, wild turkeys, rabbits, squirrels and a wide variety of birds.

Nearby Attractions

With over 30,000 acres of water surface, the lake serves as a playground for all kinds of water sports. Eighteen parks around the shoreline provide modern campgrounds, boat ramps, swim areas and marinas.
