an old time camp meeting...
annually beginning the fourth Friday in July.
Davidson Campground will hold its 129th annual encampment July 26, 2013 through August 4, 2013. Services will be daily at 11:00 a.m. and 7:45 p.m. The dress is casual. An opening prayer service will be held on Thursday July 25, 2013 at 8:00 p.m. The memorial and closing service will be on August 4th at 11:00 a.m. Each night singing groups will be performing starting at 6:30 p.m. The campground is located on Campground Road, 12 miles west of Arkadelphia off of Arkansas Highway 26.
The camp meeting is an annual ten day revival. Davidson is one of the oldest camp meetings in the nation and the largest in Arkansas. In addition to the nearly 100 wooden cabins that the campers sleep in during the ten-day meeting many campers enjoy the comforts of home by bringing their RVs with air-conditioners. Average attendance at the camp meeting is over 600 campers. While children enjoy bicycle riding and water balloons to stay cool adults relax on the front porch swings of their cabins. Youth can be found playing volleyball, ping-pong and basketball throughout the day. Cool drinks and hand-dipped ice cream cones are always close by at the camp’s commissary. While rest and relaxation is a major activity of the camp meeting, spiritual revival is the focus of the encampment. Visitors are always welcomed and encouraged to bring their RVs.
