Shouse Ford Campground Updated:09/2012

Shouse Ford Campground sits on the banks of DeGray Lake in the foothills of the Quachita Mountains. Large sandy beaches, world-class fishing and endless water sports make the campground a popular recreation area. Degray Lake is one of the region's five Diamond Lakes, known for their crystal clear waters. The lake flows from the Caddo River in western Arkansas and spans 13,500 surface acres. Boating, water skiing, kayaking and other water sports are the biggest draw to the lake, and a boat ramp and large sandy beaches are provided. The lake is also stocked with a variety of game fish, including plenty of hybrid striped bass, making it an ideal area for both boat and bank fishing.  Numerous hiking and horseback riding trails wind around the lake shore.
Shouse Ford provides 100 reservable modern campsites with electric hookups.
