Cranfield Park

Cranfield Park is surrounded by the clear waters of Norfork Lake. It's the closest campground to the city of Mountain Home and offers plenty of pleasing views of the lake from its well-shaded river island sites.  Norfork Lake boasts plenty of secluded coves for water sports and breezy, open stretches for sailing. Including Cranfield, there are 19 developed U.S. Army Corps of Engineers parks lining the lake for plenty of water sport opportunities.  Norfork Lake covers 22,000 acres with 550 miles of shoreline. Densely wooded hills and hollows surround the lake in the Ozark Mountains.  The North Fork River feeds into the lake, and beyond the dam, extends on to connect with the White River. Hiking trails in the area lead nature observers and photographers to picturesque overlooks of the Ozarks.  A wide array of fresh water game fish are found in the lake, which is fed by the North Fork River and its tributaries. Bass, walleye, crappie, bream and catfish all make their home here. A marina and boat ramp are on hand for easy access to water sports.

The 67 campsites have electric hookups, two playgrounds and an amphitheater, among other modern conveniences. A .75-mile nature trail is accessible from the campground. Please check for the latest listing of reservable sites.
