What is there to do?

Get the family out into nature and pristine wilderness with Hand Cove Resort! Kids will love being out in nature in the Arkansas Ozarks Mountains - fishing, hiking, swimming - sounds much better than sitting in front of the television don't you think!?

Hand Cove Resort offer lake front cabins, as well as RV sites. They have full hook ups, with over 20 sites featuring 30 amp electric, as well as water and sewer. Did you know they are the ONLY full hook up RV Park "on the lake" in the Lake Norfolk area? All the more reason to love them!

They have direct access to the lake! Dock access, boat excuses not to get out there!

The park itself offers wireless internet access, satellite TV, laundry, live bait/tackle shop as well as a fish cleaning station for all those budding dinner catchers (catch something tasty otherwise you're off to the grocery store nearby to pick something up!)

They have white sandy beaches just 5 minutes away, as well as a swim deck with a covered pavilion (always good to stay protected from that hot summer sun!), plus a private covered lighted boat deck.

If you stay in one of the cabins, they offer full housekeeping too! You really don't have to lift a finger! Some of these cabins are actually more like cottages, and come with bathroom/shower, as well as full kitchen set up for you to cook delicious family meals. 

Outside you get a cement patio with a picnic table AND a Weber BBQ kettle and lawn chairs! Can you say “relax”? If you’re not too busy experiencing it…that is.

Where is it at?


Hand Cove Resort & RV Park is really easy to find. From Mountain Home, take the US 62 E to Hand Cove Road (about 7 miles east from Henderson Bridge crossing over Norfolk Lake).

Turn right on Hand Cove Road and about 9 miles later you will see the RV Park entrance sign just before the road ends at the lake.
