There are rocks to climb and jump off of (about 10 feet above the water), nice restrooms, a pavilion, picnic tables, etc. It only costs $3 for the day, but more if you want to camp at one of the campsites. I know over 15 different swimming spots in Arkansas, and this one is still my favorite. My only complaint is that you cannot bring your dog (although a lot of people still do).
