DeRoche Ridge Campground will be available starting Wednesday
LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – After being closed for nearly five years, DeRoche Ridge Campground at DeGray Lake Resort State Park will reopen starting Wednesday, October 28.
According to a press release from Arkansas State Parks, the DeRoche Ridge Campground was originally closed in the winter of 2015 for renovations.
As it was set to reopen in the spring of 2018, Lake DeGray experienced record flooding. Arkansas State Parks officials say the historic high water event caused the newly renovated campground to close for repairs.
Officials say after two years of hard work, DeRoche Ridge Campground is ready for visitors.
“Access to nature and the outdoors is more important than ever,” said Stacy Hurst, secretary of the Arkansas Department of Parks, Heritage and Tourism. “With so many adults working from home and children attending school online, getting outside is a welcome respite from spending too much time indoors. We are so excited to be able to reopen DeRoche Ridge Campground and to provide our visitors with much-needed fresh air in a beautiful setting.
DeRoche Ridge Campground has 25 Class AAA sites with water, 50/30/20 amp electricity and sewer. The campground also includes six Class D walk-in tent sites with shared water services.
“The DeRoche Ridge Campground offers a unique experience,” said Arkansas State Parks Superintendent Grady Spann. “It is located on a peninsula, surrounded on three sides by the crystal clear waters of Lake DeGray. The area has been completely renovated and the campground has full service amenities and walk-in campsites. DeRoche Ridge Campground has been a very popular destination for DeGray Lake Resort State Park campers for many years and we look forward to reopening some of the most scenic campsites in Arkansas.
