It was either this or another nearby RV park and I just didn't have a good feeling for the latter so came back to Western Hills. I felt I made the right choice (reading reviews of the other park though seems people like it too so take your pick) Here it was a bit cheaper, I had the row behind the check-in building all to myself. The showers are in the store. The nice lady unlocks a cubicle to let you in, so showering is restricted to their store hours but they were very nice. The only time in all my travels I was in a shower stall that had towel bars - no lack of place to hang your clothes and towel. All gravel sites and there is interstate noise but then the other park nearby or another RV park on the other side of town would have that also. My Wi-Fi was good unlike the other reviewers. Maybe due to my being so close to the building. This place is marked in my notes and I will stay here again.

My last night on the road and I got burned at the last place I stayed. If you want water and electric only you are out of luck. You're forced into paying for a full hook-up site as that is all they have. I was right across from the office and the WiFi was agonizingly slow or non-responsive altogether. This was the nosiest park I stayed at in the two months on the road. Constant in and out traffic from the permanent residents in their desert beaten automobiles in need of a new muffler. I didn't use their restrooms since I didn't feel like going for a hike late at night or the wee morning hours. I couldn't even see the building from my spot. Based on reviews of the other two parks in Winnemuccua, in the future I'll plan my over night stay in some other town from now on.

A very quiet and scenic State Park. May have a problem finding a level site though. One of the few places I had to dig out my leveling blocks. Nice individual shower units and restrooms. I would have given it one point higher rating but you have to drive all the way around the lake to get to it, then all the way back around to get out of there all the while you are thinking "if they only would have put the road on top of the dam, I'd be there now".

I was a bit leery about staying here but with WalMart being the only other option, I stayed and was not disappointed. All sites are level, well groomed gravel with adequate space between each. No shade though. The restrooms and showers as nice as any hotel. I am a tough rater and rarely if ever dish out a 10 on the rating scale but Cabelas earned it from me. I now have a place to stay that I can count on for the long drive from California to destinations east of the Mississippi. Well done Cabelas!

None of the other reviewers mention this so I will. The toilets are pit toilets, and there is nothing else as far as restrooms and showers. It was okay for a one-nighter, but I wouldn't want to spend much more time than that there. I was the only one camping, but quiet a few locals came through, parked down at the end and did what, I don't know. There didn't seem to be anything noteworthy to see or do there. No trails, hikes, or whatever. Maybe I missed it. If you seek peace and quiet, this is your place.

I don't know what is going on here with this city park. Budget cut-backs must really be affecting the city of Phillipsburg. The electrical power wasn't working at most of the sites; some of the supply poles were knocked over. The bathrooms were padlocked shut. The water did flow from the few pipes left standing. Camp spots were difficult to identify. And they expected you to pay $10 for all of this. Three campers stayed and none paid and no one came by to collect. A very sorry city park camp.

I first went to the State Park at Wilson lake but the cost to stay was quite high. The nice rangers redirected me to this COE park up by the dam. It has nice level gravel sites in a grass and tree camp area. Lots of extra big pull-through sites as it is a custom there in Kansas to pull a boat trailer behind a super big 5th wheel. Very nice restroom/shower facilities. Stay here and save money.

Nice grassy campground with level gravel sites. I went there under the impression there were no showers but did find they had them although they were under repair at the time. Only one other camper there and you cannot beat the price especially when able to use your Federal Golden Age Passport old person's discount. Would stay there again.

This State Park is remote. It had 4 camp sites 2 of which were in the making. There was nothing there except shade, a small stream and lots of hiking trails, a nature lover's delight, quiet and peaceful. Toilets were pit toilets a quarter mile walk away to the parking area at the trail head. If you have a motor home 24 feet or smaller you will be okay. Maybe a small trailer would also, but otherwise not good. A camper van fine. The ranger guy was weird and acted as if my being there was a bother to him. No personality, very dull and stand-offish. The woman in the office seemed intimidated by him and kept quiet. Very bad vibes. I would not go back there.

A very nice quiet setting along the lake beneath shade trees. Lots of biking trails. Did not use restroom facilities, but they looked nice and well cared for.

Date of Stay:

Another Arkansas gem at an unbeatable rate. Nice sites, level, quiet, and shady. Well cared for restroom facilities. Friendly staff at check-in. Lots of history in the area including the Old Davidsonville town site for which the park is named. I've yet been disappointed with an Arkansas State Park.

Date of Stay:

Very nice park-like setting along the White River. Level camp sites. Nice restroom facilities well cared for. Ranger ladies at check-in were friendly and helpful. Lots of Civil War history in the area and the park itself. Evidently they bring in a paddle wheel boat and moor it near the boat launch on the river and you can go aboard and tour it. It was not there when I was. Must have been too early in the season.

If you are in the Tuscumbia area, this is the place to stay. Drive north of town, cross the bridge and here you are in Florence at McFarland park. Had a nice quiet site along the water beneath tall shade trees. Sites are on grass or dirt. Restrooms were of an older design but well cared for. Very nice lady at the check-in. You will be a lot happier here than the three places available in Tuscumbia.

Date of Stay:

Nice level gravel sites within shady forest setting. Okay rest rooms but were in a need of a cleaning. Maybe things were out of sorts because a terrible thunderstorm just passed through the area with lightening hitting trees, knocking out electrical, cable and Wi-Fi and they were trying to get things going again.

This was the first campground in a month of travelling that I had to use the leveling blocks. Maybe it was just that one particular site but the others appeared to have their own off-camber issues also. The strangest thing is you drive through the dump station to enter or exit the campground. Therefore if you are doing the dumping routine, you will be blocking traffic. Weird. Very nice clean restroom/shower facilities. Peaceful and quiet with a forest setting.
