Lost Valley State Park is an outdoor recreational area not far from Compton, Arkansas. The park is intersected by the Buffalo River, one of the few remaining rivers in the country that hasn't been altered by the building of a dam. It is also home to the Lost Valley Trail leading farther into the wilderness, eventually coming to a halt at a cave. The park is a box canyon that may have once been all underground; if true, then Cobb Cave (a large bluff providing shelter) and the underground cave at the trail's end may be all that was left of the original cavern. Booking an RV rental near Lost Valley State Park is an excellent way to start your northwest Arkansas explorations.

Lost Valley is in a picturesque setting with a wide variety of scenery.

The area is well marked with signage, so finding your way around will be easy. Camping near Lost Valley State Park will put you in touch with nature without having to sacrifice your creature comforts, letting you enjoy the best of both worlds.

Getting Outdoors

While hiking the trail, you can enjoy nature and wildlife watching, or perhaps even stop from time to time to take photos. Lost Valley State Park is open to the public year-round, and the seasonal changes make this area a photographer's playground, with sunny days and overcast days shrouded in fog; water levels vary, and a good rain can allow photographers to use a variety of techniques in their photos.
