Choctaw Campground is located on the spacious Greers Ferry Lake nestled in the foothills of the Ozark Mountains.
In the 19th century, a city named Higden flourished where the lake now rests. The city suffered from frequent flooding and as a result a man-made lake was created for flood control of the area.
Today, the city’s remains sit below the lake, enticing scuba divers and archeologists alike.
Greers Ferry Lake spans 30,000 acres of north-central Arkansas. The dam creating the reservoir stands at the foot of the beautiful Round Mountain, with water trickling through to the Little Red River.
Whether a visitor prefers boating, water skiing, fishing, swimming or scuba diving, Greers Ferry Lake has it all. The river tributaries keep anglers entertained, as they produce some of the largest walleye in the world; the record breaker was a whopping 23 lbs.
In spring, the countryside becomes a photographer’s paradise with wildflowers, redbud and dogwood trees in full bloom.
