“1970 first visit to lake sylvia. ”
Reviewed 2 June 2014 via mobile

I was a young girl and have a very fond memory of a natural rock slide with rushing water that ended in a small wade pool. Lots of fun kids. I hope to visit again.

“JUST PERFECT”
Reviewed 16 September 2013

This is a charming little lake located about an hour outside of Little Rock. It is quiet and very peaceful with everything you could want for camping. It has a campground with city water and electric hookups for RVs and 2 bathhouses in the campground. There is a really nice swimming area and a bathhouse on the other side and is great for a day trip or for a weekend getaway to the mountains. Plenty of hiking trails in the area and the rangers and local law enforcement keep the riff raff out. The price per night and for the day area a cheaper than going to any other lake to camp within 80 miles. I would recommend anyone who likes to camp to come visit this great little hidden treasure.

“Beautiful Jewel!”

This is camping like it should be! Wonderful for a picnic as well! A lake in the middle of the mountains... Worth the drive!

“Under-rated”
Reviewed 7 January 2012

I actually love Lake Sylvia. It is far more than average, but as a lake it is not much. What I am saying is that this forest service property is beautifully sited on the Ouachita Trail , with campgrounds and bathroom facilities and there is swimming in the pea-green colored lake in the summer. It's a great site to visit and enjoy with great trails, rocky crags, and forests. It's just not much of a lake. Be sure and take a look at the restored historic log Girl Scout camp across the lake.
