Michelle, our waitperson was attentive and helpful in choosing the best on the menu. We had a salad of great variety and a hamburger with fries. I complimented the chef. We wanted to return in the morning but they were closed on Monday (I think). Very clean, homey restaurant with happy staff. We will return for sure. We stayed here... More

We had the 2-bedroom Ozark Cabin for two nights in the off-season. It is a new cabin with comfortable beds and the kitchen was well equipped. The restaurant on the property isn't open off season so we cooked, except breakfast which we had at nearby Mtn. Harbor Resort restaurant. We drove to Mt, Ida and Glenwood exploring (we live in...

While traveling off season we found this great place. Short scenic drive from Hot Springs. And well worth it! Nestled in the Ouachita National Forest. Cabins were over looking a cove of Lake Ouachita. Beautiful views and scenery. Stayed in cabin with 2 beds, kitchen, living room and deck overlooking the marina. Hosts were very knowledgeable of the area and... More

The pictures on the website does not do this place justice...you must see it in person. Being able to sit on your porch over-looking the lake, mountains, trees and the activity on the lake was so relaxing. The cabins were super clean and well-maintained. We will be staying here on our next trip to Arkansas. The office staff was friendly... More

Fishermans choice had so many gnats and ants in the kitchen sink area. The hall bath dripped so bad you can hear it in both bedrooms loudly, ALL night. Doors so loud and squeaky if 1 is awake all will be awake. Super easy fixes but irritating enough to make the sleep and food prepping less than desirable.

Crystal Springs Campground offers swimming on a sandy beach, fishing all over Lake Ouachita, 2nd cleanest lake in U.S. , wonderful camping spaces near the lake, electricity and water hookups. A great place for day camp and picnic or overnight. Tents allowed as well. Reservations suggested. Hot showers. Highly recommend for singles to families.

We originally reserved 2 of the lakefront cabins for a week. Upon arrival we discovered that the lakefront cabin is lake view at best, and not a good view. Out the cabin door was a steep hill, a fence, car parking, a road and a marina. So if you are thinking you will have close access to the water you... More

We come here several times a year and love the staff, and the lake. Accommodations some are a little rustic some are newer but it's so beautiful you'll love your stay regardless! The staff is always friendly and willing to help you anyway they can.

We stayed in The Ozarks cabin and it was beautiful. Very peaceful location. The cabin was clean and the Crystal Springs staff were welcoming and helpful. We would stay here again!!
