Runner Information Packet - Lodging

The Lake Sylvia campground will be open on race weekend. There are two group camping areas for tents that the race has reserved and taken care of for Friday and Saturday nights. These are first-come/first-serve. It is possible that up to ten tents can fit in each area. Individual camp sites (RV spaces) are available for a small fee (the race does not pay for these). For information, visit www.fs.fed.us/r8/ouachita/recreation/campgrounds/lakesylvia or call 501-889-5176.

If you just have a tent and need no power or water hookups, we have reserved and paid for the two group camping areas at Lake Sylvia for Friday and Saturday nights for race participants.  Each area will hold approximately ten tents--first come, first served.
