Moderators mountainborn Posted February 3, 2008 Moderators Share Posted February 3, 2008 Show us those great photos of your Tow Vehicle and travel trailer out there on the road somewhere. > In this photo, we are parked on Housley Point, Lake Ouachita, Arkansas. Lake Ouachita is thirty four miles long, has over seven hundred miles of shoreline, and well over one hundred islands. Housley Point is on a penninsula between the North and the South Ouachita Rivers. There are no hookups, but there are picnic tables and fire rings at about fifteen campsites. There is a boat launch ramp there and nearly all of the sites are on the water. I must have been worried about the mud on the coach because that seems to be mostly what is in the photo. The campground is four and one half miles from the end of the pavement. It had rained and the road was slick in places, one red clay hill in particular. The Road Wings caught most of the mud. It would accumilate until it slid off of the flap in large slabs. The mud on the coach managed to get past the flaps somehow. Housley point is a beautiful campground and has little traffic from vehicles, but lots of boat traffic out on the lake. Very early in the mornings fishermen are cutting through the nearby islands enroute to fishing locations. Located on a dead end road, with the last four and one half miles gravel, makes this one of Lake Ouachita's "Hidden Gems !" In this photo, we are looking out from the campsite towards "Hotdog & Hamburger" islands. The islands were named for their shape. Island camping is allowed. Early in the year this campground is habited mostly by fishermen, but later in the year, as it warms up a bit, the water sports folks frequent the campground. Butcherknife and I fish, camp, and SCUBA dive, so we are likely to be there about any time. I would rather wake up in the middle of nowhere than in any city on earth 08' Oliver Legacy Elite HULL NUMBER 0003(sold) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
