Little Pines Recreation Area camping

The recently built Little Pines Recreation Area, east of Waldron offers a full service modern campground with electricity, water, trailer dump station, paved roads, a pavilion, hiking trails, a day use area with a swimming beach and boat docks.  The recreation area is located on the banks of Lake Hinkle, a 1,000 plus-acre lake, managed by the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission, with bountiful fishing opportunities for bass, crappie, bream, sunfish, and catfish.  Also within the facility is a boat ramp, fishing dock, toilet facilities and ample parking.  While these later facilities are all free, there is a nominal fee for the day use area and modest fee for overnight camping.  Also, in the planning stage is a lengthy fishing pier to be constructed by the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission for public use.
