Unlevel sites jammed in tightly between a busy two lane highway and algae filled pond. No shade, fire pits, tables or grills. You're packed in vey closely to your neighbors. I didn't golf but it would have to be world class to justify staying here otherwise. Pass. We camped at The Creeks Golf & RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.
My tip is to stay elsewhere and drive to a good gold course.

I'm floored that this park has so many positive reviews. We were looking for a campsite near Silver Dollar City that would give us a natural environment and the fun of camping at night. We went with two other sets of campers, two of us in hybrid trailers and one in a 30' class C. All three groups said their hearts sank when they pulled up to the park - the area with full hookups is basically an RV parking lot. We were all 10-15' from neighboring rigs and the sites backed up to forest so thick with poison ivy it was like an impenetrable wall. The 'green' area of our site was so small that we couldn't even fit chairs around all sides of the fire pit, it ran right up to the woods. There is a nice playground. The sites with fewer hookups or none were a little better but still very closely spaced. I would not return to or recommend this campground. We camped at Table Rock Lake State Park in a Tent Trailer.

This review is for campground 2. Our family (2 hybrid TTs and a class C) stayed in sites 79, 80 & 81 on a Sat-Wed. I give the park, and online reservation system, 5 stars, but thought the campground was kind of a dud compared to most of the state parks we've visited in Arkansas. The sites are electric only, and there is only one restroom facility for the entire campground, located by the road, a pretty good walk from the camp sites. NBD if you're in a camper with big tanks, but for a family of 4 in a small camper for 4 nights it can be a challenge. The restrooms were clean. The campground is bordered on one side by a hill and the river on the other, but between is pretty much an open field and not very nature-y feeling. The sites on the river look directly across at all the campers in CG3 or at a busy road. The most attractive sites were those up against the hill/bluffs -- 84, 86, 87, 89 & 90. No recycling and the only trash receptacles were two overflowing dumpsters in the middle. This section of the river is fly fishing only, but there are some rocky banks that are fun for kids to play on. There was a lot of traffic by our sites, which was a little stressful with small children, and again took away from the calm nature experience we seek out when camping. There are two or three water spigots in the CG; sites where you might be able to get water directly to your camper using a couple of hoses include 83, 85, 95-97, and 101. There is a nice 3 mile hike that starts at the far end of the campground. We'll come back to RRSP, but opt for CG 1. Those sites are *really* far from the restroom, but much prettier and private. We camped at Roaring River State Park in a Tent Trailer.
