Basically a parking lot, but with a pretty good view. Right on the banks of the Arkansas River, just upstream of the Clinton Bridge and facing downtown Little Rock. Access is via a relatively narrow opening in the seawall (good enough for two cars to pass, but we wouldn't want to try and pass another rig there) then across the boat landing parking lot to the campground. Single lane asphalt access road with packed gravel sites (mix of pullthrus, backins, and pullins). The riverside row is alternating pullins / backins with good space between sites on the patio side. Second row is alternating direction pull thrus while back row is alternating backins and pullins. Each pair of sites share utility pedestals. Grassy area with two or three trees (and the only shade) between the front row and riverbank is treated as a common area for all sites, but we never felt invaded by others. Campground is fenced and gated (one vehicle, two pedestrian gates - one of which provides direct access to the Clinton Bridge). Relatively quiet at night, but somewhat noisy during the day since I-30 crosses the river just upstream of the campground. Power, water, sewer ok, but sewer does not have threaded connections. Wifi had good signal strength and good to adequate data speed (they intentionally throttle video streaming). Verizon and Tmobile both had moderate signal strength and speed. Aluminum can recycle on site. Great access to the Arkansas River Trail for bike riding along both the south and north sides of the river. Loop of about 17 miles is possible by crossing on the Clinton Bridge and the Big Dam Bridge. North side of the trail is much more scenic; south side requires a good amount of street riding (due to bridge construction) and you can't see the river for about 5 miles. We will definitely stay here again.

Older cramped campground in need of maintenance. First site was deeply rutted, second site with very unlevel front to back although not quite so much that our jacks couldn't handle it. Very narrow asphalt access roads with very sharp turns. Made worse with rigs, tow vehicles, etc. hanging slightly out into the access road. Gravel sites with grass between the sites and a picnic table. Not much distance between sites. Site was barely long enough for our rig (44') with the toad parked sideways. Access roads make it very marginal for big rig access. Lots of highway noise but we were in the A row - might have been slightly quieter further back in the park. Power on leg 1 OK, power on leg 2 very marginal (108v with no load, sagging to 103v under load). Did not use other utilities. WiFi was TengoInternet with good signal strength and adequate to slow speed. Verizon was 3 bars with adequate speed, Tmobile was 3 bars (did not test the speed). We stayed here only because unexpected service work made it too late to proceed to the campground we had picked out. We would not stay here again unless we were in similar circumstances.

Very nice campground, if only it was a bit further away from I-20. Road noise is a definite issue with this campground, but what full hookup campground within a decent distance of the metroplex is quiet? If you're going mainly to the southeast side of the metroplex (or even downtown Dallas), it would be hard to beat the location. Long wheelbase rigs do not come south on 429 to the campground (potential for hanging up on the railroad crossing at 80 and 429). A rather bumpy asphalt entry road (probably due to the construction of another 50 or so sites) with "sort of" two lane gravel access roads (trees convert some of these to single lane for taller rigs). Mix of pullthrus and backins surrounded by grass with trees at most sites providing shade opportunities while not generally presenting problems with satellite access. Sites are a mix of various sizes of gravel and are generally pretty level. Edges can be very soft after rain so ruts are not uncommon when a rig gets too close to the edge. Those we saw created were quickly filled in by the staff. Lots of grassy areas and woodlands surrounding the campsite area along with a relatively large catch and release pond. Power ok (even under load), water ok, sewer ok. Wifi was hit or miss, mostly miss. Both Verizon and Tmobile had decent signal strength and ok to adequate speed. Aluminum can and plastic recycling on site. OK bike riding around the campground, but no direct access to good riding outside the campground. We will stay here again when in the area.

A decent wayside campground set on the grounds on an old cotton gin. Decent gravel access roads with mix of pull thrus and backins. Grass surrounding the sites. Good length on the pull thrus (long enough to not drop the toad from a 44' motorhome). Minimal highway noise, but noticeable train noise - mainly the train horns - but nothing that kept us awake. Around a dozen trains in the 16 hours we were there. Power ok, did not use other utilities. Wifi good signal strength and speed (slower as usual in the evening). No recycle on site. No apparent good choices for bike riding. We would stay here again when passing through.

A better than usual desert KOA good for a short stay. Gravel access roads and sites with some decent shade trees and patches of grass. Mostly quiet with the occasional train noise. Power, water, sewer ok. Wifi decent signal strength and speed. No recycling on site. Very bumpy bike riding around the campground. No immediate access to trails outside the campground. We would stay here again when passing through.

About the same as last time (see 9/15 review) except there seemed to be much more noise from the highway. Perhaps due to the opening of the Loves at the same exit resulting in an increased use of jakes by the trucks. Noise fell off significantly when walking around the older section of the campground; however, longer rigs can't use the older section. Power ok, water ok (60psi), sewer ok. Wifi had good signal strength, but unable to get an IP address. Verizon LTE was 4 bars with decent speed in daytime slowing down to abysmal in the evening. Did not try our Tmobile hotspot. Aluminum can recycle on site. Decent bike riding around campground, but no readily accessible trails for riding outside the campground. Due to the increase in noise, we may reconsider our options when next in Albuquerque.

Not a bad campground for a KOA. A steep but short climb up into the campground with minimal level space to drop toad. Gravel access roads and sites. Decent access coming in, but larger rigs may want to consider going out the entrance road instead of using the exit road. The trees are not well trimmed for taller rigs on the inside of turns and the exit road is relatively narrow with rocks on one side and a ditch on other side. Adequate length in the view sites but they require careful maneuvering with a larger rig potentially requiring some back and fill to get in and out of the site. We wouldn't want to try it without a ground spotter - utilities on both sides, close in low plantings, trees not well trimmed for taller rigs. At 44' we barely fit with toad parked crossways and minimal room in front for chairs to enjoy the view. Power, water, and sewer ok. Wifi ranged from adequate to abysmal. Verizon was 3-4 bars with decent data speed. Tmobile was 2-3 bars with decent data speed. No recycling on site. No good bike riding in immediate vicinity. We only stayed here because our usual campground was full. We probably will not come back.

A nice campground far enough from Tucson to be quiet, but not too far for day tripping. Good sized asphalt access roads. A mix of asphalt pull thrus with ok width (transients) and gravel backins (longer term). Gravel sites generally very wide, but with pea gravel which was impossible to keep outside. Difficult to get level with longer coach in gravel sites due to slopes on both ends. At 44' we could only barely get level with the back almost in the gravel slope and the front just barely clear of the front slope with front wheels slightly off the ground. Jack pads greatly improve stability in the pea gravel. Shorter coaches (less than 40') should have no problem getting level in these sites. Power, water, and sewer OK. Wifi at the site was a bust, but they do claim it is available only at the clubhouse. We had a clear line of sight to an external wifi tower on the clubhouse (about 100 yards away), but could not get a connection even with high gain antennae. Verizon LTE was 3 to 4 bars with good voice and mostly decent data. Tmobile was highly variable ranging from 2 bars with decent speed to 0 bars and no connectivity. Aluminum can recycle on site and a transfer station with full recycle just north of town. Decent places to ride bikes around the campground and in the subdivision behind. Also nice riding south on the highway (wide shoulders, light traffic). We will stay here again.

Not much change from our last stop (see 2/15 review). An adequate KOA for an overnight. Site sloped to front, but still had front tires on ground (barely) when leveled. Power OK, did not use other utilities. Wifi had very poor signal and was not handing out IP addresses so rather useless. We couldn't ever connect through our router, but did get a direct connect from an iMac at 1.5Mbs. Tmobile LTE was 4 bars with very sluggish speed. Verizon LTE was 5 bars, but could not maintain a data connection. On site can recycling. Lots of trains though mostly in the evening hours.

A very nice park except for the connectivity. Good width asphalt access roads. Sites are gravel fines that are leveled after each use. Sites alternate directions (shared utility pedastals). View blocks of fence and shrubs on the patio side. Our pullthru was barely long enough for our 44' plus toad turned sideways. There are a few super long pullthrus in the campground. Scattered trees throughout the campground. Minimal highway noise from I-10 and occasional train noise (4 or 5 times a week for about 15 minutes). Power ok (metered on monthly stays), water ok (100psi), sewer ok (but may need donut to connect since it is recessed in a concrete ring). Wifi is abysmal - poor to very poor SNR (they appear to have only 2 antennae - one on the roof of the office, the other near the exit), occasional multi-minute page loads during the day with the park less than 1/3rd full. When the park was full, we just stayed on our hotspot. Verizon LTE good signal (4 bars), ok speed with park 1/3rd full, slow at all times of the day with the park 2/3 full. TMobile LTE ok signal (2 to 3 bars), but good speed most of the time.

We have been here a half dozen times, but never managed to take notes on the prior visits. Sort of 2 campgrounds - the older part nicely landscaped with a good amount of shade, but problematic for big rigs (we fit in our prior coach at 37' barely) and the newer part with minimal landscaping and pretty much no shade (but our 44' fit nicely with toad). Adequate asphalt access roads though in some cases big rigs will need to swing wide on the turns. Older part is mostly level concrete sites with grass between the sites, newer part is mostly level concrete sites with gravel between the sites and a small concrete patio for the picnic table. Power ok, water pressure high (80+), did not use sewer this time. Wifi was sometimes decent and sometimes not. Slowdowns were not always at the usual time period (early evening). Verizon varied from ok to sluggish, but we only checked it when the campground wifi was sluggish. Satellite access no problem from new part, depends upon the site for the old part. Some recycling on site (nothing marked, but it seemed to be just aluminum cans). We will continue to stay here when in the Albuquerque area.

A relatively nice desert campground with great views. Far enough out of town to be mostly quiet with some highway noise. Single lane gravel access roads leading to mostly level gravel sites. Nicely spaced sites with picnic table and desert vegetation. Power ok although we did have one dropout on leg 2 (under 104v) over the course of a week. No A/C loading so no feel for how that would affect the power. Water psi low at 40, sewer ok, but not a threaded connection. Wifi was reasonable for a campground with occasional periods of sluggish bandwidth and frequent disconnects. Verizon access was pretty much of a joke (extended service 3g with 3 bars and very slow). We tried it once when the campground wifi was sluggish and it made the campground seem fast by comparison. No problem with satellite access. Recycle aluminum cans only. Electric is metered on weekly rates - we paid $20 for the week (but no heavy electric usage). We will stay here again.

Really nice for a KOA. The main access road is asphalt with good width. Interior roads are gravel. Gravel sites somewhat on the narrow side, but mostly level. Lots of trees and grass with nice places to sit in the shade. Campground appears to be well maintained. There was slight highway noise. Power ok (but did not load it), did not use water or sewer - campground claimed 40psi on water. Wifi was annoying - repeated logons required in some cases multiple times in an hour. Adequate speed in the day, usual crawl in the evening. Verizon was 3g with 3 bars and sluggish speed. Satellite access is iffy for fixed dishes. No recycle on site. We would probably stay here again, but not for an extended time.

A very pleasant oasis in the city. Very quiet even on a holiday weekend. Mostly decent asphalt access roads. Big rig access good except for the occasional tree needing trimming and the entrance station. Both lanes at the entrance station are rather narrow but doable with care in big rig. Sites are level concrete pads for rig, gravel patio with fire pit and picnic table. Grass and trees surround the sites with good separation between sites. Lots of paths for walking and biking. The RTD light rail station is a 1.5 mile walk along the trails. Power ok even under load, water 85psi, sewer ok. Wifi was good for a campground even when the campground full. Verizon was 3 bars, but did not check speed. Satellite access depends on site chosen. No onsite recycle. State park fees are assessed on top of campground fees ($63 for a week). We will stay here again.

Date of Stay:

Rather rundown campground sandwiched between I-70 with its attendant truck noise and the Eagle river. Reasonable asphalt access roads. Sites are badly worn with uneven asphalt and minimal landscaping. Oddly jack pads are required. Sites were mostly level with picnic table and fire ring. Power OK (but no A/C loading), did not use water (but we were warned about fluctuating water pressure), no sewer. WiFi is rather pitiful - poor signal strength and long page loads (sometimes several minutes). Verizon is no real alternative - one or 2 bars mostly 3G with occasional LTE connection and very slow speed. No issue with satellite access. We would consider staying here again for an overnight, but no more.
