Trail Overview

Crystal Mountain spur road is the gateway to one of the most beautiful camping spots in Arkansas. With a peak of 1,680 feet, you can see for miles. At the top of this majestic peak, you have three camping spots that face the east. This makes for some of the most amazing sunrises Arkansas has to offer. This is a primitive campsite with firepits but there are no restrooms.


This road requires 4low. Navigating this trail is tricky as there are mostly large rocks you are driving over to get to the top. Road is washed out with several large boulders to the top.


Arkansas is full of Quartz crystals which can be found at this campsite and around the Ouichita National Forest
