Why You Should Camp at Woolly Hollow State Park

Woolly Hollow is a small, quiet state park in north central Arkansas.  Located just an hour north of Little Rock, it is a convenient weekend destination.  We spent a week at Woolly Hollow this past summer and have already made plans to return.  See why we think Woolly Hollow is a great place to go camping!

40-acre Bennett Lake

Camping

Woolly Hollow State Park has 30 AAA campsites, 10 tent sites, and an updated bathhouse.  The campsites throughout the camping area have plenty of space between each spot, so we never felt crowded.  With only 30 campsites, noise was never an issue.  

Our campsite (site #001) had a nice view of Bennett Lake, pull-though RV/trailer parking, and an additional gravel tent pad. When we camped at Woolly Hollow, it was extremely hot.  During the heat of the day, we escaped to nearby Conway, Arkansas to catch a movie and stock up on supplies.

Mountain Biking

Woolly Hollow State Park has a 9-mile mountain bike trail called Enders Fault.  It is easy enough for beginners to  intermediate riders.  Joe was able to ride the trail several times during our stay.  For details on the trail, read his post Enders Fault Mountain Bike Trail.

Kayaking Bennett Lake

Other Amenities

The park contains lots of other amenities for campers, as well as day trippers.  Bennett Lake is small enough to kayak the entire circumference in less than an hour.  Canoes, pedal boats, and fishing boats are available for rent.  

Joe and I used the lake to help combat the summer heat.  We would kayak awhile, then park our kayak at the beach and swim for a bit.  Although we didn’t fish, the dock and lake had a steady stream of fisherman throwing their lines into the water.

Fishing Dock

 

Woolly Hollow has an original 1882 cabin for history lovers (like me) to admire.  Kids will enjoy the playground and snack bar.  There are picnic pavilions available to reserve by large groups.
