UPDATE DATE: 2/13/2014

STATE: Arkansas

REGION: Southern

RANGER DISTRICT: Sylamore

NEAREST CITY/TOWN: Fifty Six

RESERVATIONS: No

DIRECTIONS:
From Fifty Six, AR, take State Rt. 14 east 0.4 miles to Blanchard Springs 
Cavern sign.  Turn left at sign and go 2.4 miles to a "T" intersection.  Turn 
left and go 0.4 miles to campground.

GENERAL COMMENTS:
The elevation is 400 ft.

The campground is composed of one loop and a spur.  They are separated 
by the crystal clear North Sylamore Creek.  Access to the Loop is by fording 
the creek over a low-water bridge (inaccessible during heavy rains).  There is 
no sign to the loop; proceed past site number 14 to the loop.  Sites 1 through 
8 are well suited for tents and slide-ins.  With no turnaround, access to these 
sites is not recommended for motorhomes and travel trailers.  The campground 
is heavily wooded with a mixture of hardwoods and cedar and quite attractive 
with Dogwoods blooming in early April.

Blanchard Springs is an excellent destination campground.  There is the 
Blanchard Springs Caverns, a spectacular "living" cave - a must visit.  Then, 
in the same Recreation area, there is the walk to Blanchard Springs - a 
wonderful spectacle of water pouring out of the mountain side.  Just above 
and to the left of it, is the original CCC-built gatehouse - built around 1935.  
Also, see the natural amphitheater near the day use are, the fishing pond 
on the way to the springs and much more.

About 15 miles away on State Rt. 14, near Mountain View, AR, is the Ozark 
Folk Center State Park.  Here, many folk and gospel concerts are held.  
Another major attraction in the Park are various "cottages" that house live 
demonstrations of blacksmithing, knife making, gunsmithing, quilting, etc.  
There are also mini-concerts during the day of "foot stompin" folk music.  
This Park, like the Caverns, is lots of fun for every family member.
