Trail Overview

This is a very uneven, rocky, muddy road with several washouts and deep water areas when its raining. This road may be unpassable during heavy rains. There were three campsites along this road that were pretty nice. The one at the end next to the dam was my favorite. There is also a 4x4 trail that starts right after your cross the dam. I have yet to explore that trail but would advise on not doing that trail alone. There is a boat launch area at the end but I wouldn't advise on bringing any kind of trailer down the road. There are no restrooms, or facilities at this location. Lake is man made with a dam. No cell phone service along this road.

Trail looks to be freshly refurbished, drove down there in a Mazda cx-5 and had no problems. Just a gravel road.

Take Highway 7 south of Ola, Arkansas, and then left on Link Mountain Road. There are very big signs that say Cove Creek Lake off the main highway, I have attached pictures for your reference.
