Fees: $10 a night, free from mid-November to mid-March (for both horse and tent camping.)

Steel Creek Campground features 26 tent camping sites and 14 horse camp sites available on a first come, first served basis. The tent camping and horse camping areas are separated by about 1/4 mile and around a bend, so there is good privacy for each group. It is readily accessible by cars.

Steel Creek is one of the best sites for hikers and photographers. It is located in the Ponca Wilderness. The Ponca to Steel Creek hike of the Buffalo River Trail is very popular. It is also close to the Arkansas Elk Herd in Boxley Valley
