Camp, paddle and fish the Little Red River in Shirley, Arkansas. Shirley offers a free-camp city park on the Little Red River. Note that the city park campground offers NO amenities; however, there is a ball field within the park that has restrooms that are sometimes unlocked. If we have a decent group and some need use of those facilities, I'll contact the city and see if they'll help us out. Little Red River Outfitters in Shirley offers shuttle and boat rental service.
