JB Trading Post in Compton, Arkansas offers both a general store/trading post and full-service campground. The store is stocked with the usual convenience store supplies along with a variety of outdoor gear and equipment. The campground is fairly new and well maintained. Sites are available for both tent and RV. Platform tents are also available at the campground.

In addition to immaculately clean grounds, JB Trading Post boasts the nicest restrooms and showers that we have ever seen at a campground. Truth be told, the restrooms at this campground are nicer than what is typically found in many hotels. Showers are coin operated, but they are very nice, clean, and have plenty of hot water.

At the time of publication, prices are $20/night for tent sites, $30/night for RV sites, and $40/night for platform tents.

Reservations are accepted at the campground. Call 870-420-3065 for reservations or inquiries.

We last visited JB Trading Post in March 2018.


Take Highway 43 to Compton. JB Trading Post is on the north side of Highway 43 near the post office.
