Ouachita National Forest

Ouachita National Forest is the other, lesser known, national forest in Arkansas. It isn’t as famous as the Ozarks. Maybe because no one knows how to pronounce it.

Lake Ouachita

Lake Ouachita is a large lake in the national forest. We camped there at Joplin campground, which I cannot recommend enough. It was beautiful. There was only one other person there but that’s because we came in the middle of the week.

We found a campsite that jutted out in the lake. We had our own tiny peninsula.


We saw a boat with a skier but that was it. It wasn’t a very crowded lake. Again, it was the middle of the week. We swam a little but that was it.
