Dreaming of Dispersed Camping

The Coronavirus has disrupted every part of our lives. We aren’t under a mandatory stay at home order here in Arkansas, but like everywhere else in this country, life here is very far from normal. Whatever that was. I don’t know about you, but I‘m looking forward to being able to hang out with family and friends again. I am missing the very best hugs from my Granddaughters.

Here at Gateway Teardrops, while everything is disrupted, we are busy working on new ideas for our campers and new ways to more efficiently utilize our facilities to produce the best campers anywhere.

Lately, I’ve been thinking about camping when the campgrounds reopen. When I was growing up, we used to go camping at Corps of Engineers campgrounds on Greers Ferry Lake. To get a prime campsite, we would sometimes send part of the family ahead on Wednesday or Thursday. Fast forward forty years — the restrooms and bathhouse facilities are much better, but instead of going early, you now reserve your campsite online. When the campgrounds open again, they are going to fill up in no time. I fear that there is going to be much more demand than available campsites. 

With that in mind, I’ve been thinking about trying dispersed camping in the Ozark and/or Ouachita National Forest. Here is where you come in. If you are willing to share, tell me about your favorite places for dispersed camping!
