From Greers Ferry Lake to Wright Patman Lake in Texas
From Conway, we head west on Interstate 40 for a few miles and then take back roads , Route 9 south to Route 60 west to Scenic Route 7 and Nimrod Lake.
The rains and wind have brought down a lot of leaves and branches, but we are intrepid scouts and find the road anyway.

From Nimrod lake, it is another beautiful , country drive on a scenic road, Route 7 , south through Hot Springs, Arkansas. Then on to Bismarck and DeGray Lake. Jan and I choose Arlie Moore COE for this stay.
Arlie Moore is another inexpensive Corps of Engineer Campground. The offseason, America the Beautiful Senior Pass price is $6 per night. The park is popular for fishermen and also for a few fulltime campers.
One that we talked to was from New York State, a retired State Public Works man from the Finger Lakes area. He enjoys a quiet campground and the Corps allows a two months or more stay at this campground from November to March. He might have to change sites once or twice, but he had a small motorhome like ours, so not a problem.
He mentioned that it seemed a good addition to have close by, in case he ever needed it. Maybe a little gallows humor, but we wished him good luck and not having to need it. He actually had it open sometimes. It was quite nice inside. Maybe a new way to get groceries on your motorcycle. Or , how many friends do you suppose are willing to take a ride?
