Arkansas road info sought

Can any of our Arkansas AS folks tell me anything about Arkansas 14 on the way up to Bull Shoals? Did Google satellite view and street view but in that it appears to be a stretch without lots of towns, just wanted to know what towing is like on that stretch?

Thanks

Dana

It's a little curvy up to Yellville, but you'll do fine.

After Yellville you're almost there.

If you are going to the town of Bull Shoals, you need to take 62 off of 14 from Yellville over to Flippin and then 178 up to Bull Shoals. Exactly which part of 14 were you asking about?

Was asking about the part from Harriet to Yellville.
We will be headed to Bull Shoals White River State Park from Crystal Springs Corps of Engineers campground on Lake Ouchita west of Hot Springs. If anyone has a best route suggestion would love to hear it. current plan is 70-65-27-14-62.

Thanks again.

Dana

Dana,
I have camped at Denby Point, a Corp site on the south side of Quachita many times (used to do a mountain bike race close to there every year). It is west of Crystal Springs but I think all the corps sites are fine. I would take Hwy 27 all the way to 14 and then 62 over to Flippin (the factory tour of the Ranger Bass Boat factory is really interesting) and 178 up to Bull Shoals. Go thru the little town and cross the top of the dam. At the top of the hill after you cross the dam turn right and the state park is at the bottom of the hill along the river. Buffalo Point campground on the Buffalo river is very nice and is just off hwy 14 where it crosses the river. It is run by the NPS so if you wanted to break up the trip that would be a nice place to stay.
After you get settled in Bull Shoals drive down the road past the State Park and check out Gaston's resort. There have a good restaurant overlooking the river. I have been camping and fishing in Arkansas for over 30 years so I traveled all those roads many times. It will be a long day of travel from Quachita to Bull Shoals. Another option is going north 27 from Mt. Ida and cutting over and spending a night at Petit Jean Mountain state park. We love that place too. Great hiking and super RV sites. Then you could head up to Clinton Ark then pick up 65 on up to Marshall and hit hwy 14 ( we did that trip in reverse in October). PM me if you need specifics about the Bull Shoals area.
