The park looks shabby. There is litter on the ground, (cigarette butts). We spent 4 nights there and most of the time the internet was so slow as to be unusable. One night it rained hard which created large puddles near our coach where the power pedestal is. There is no shade for over night. Those sites are taken by full-timers. Other than a convenient place for our stay, it did not meet our expectations. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Lady at check-in was nice enough. However, I had asked her if there were any tree limbs to be concerned with, she replied, oh no!! We were told to go to the rear of the park and park on either site 323 or 325. On the way there we had to pull way over to the left on the edge of the dirt road to miss a very large limb. We parked on a very large level pull-through site. The other one was blocked off by several concrete blocks. Hookups all worked well. The site we parked on and the next one to us was littered with several dozen cigarette butts, two beer cans and numerous pull tabs and beer bottle caps. Also, someone had dumped a charcoal cooker in the middle of the site leaving a large mess. Makes us wonder if employees ever walk through the park to look things over. Also, at check-in the nice lady asked if we were Good Sam members and I answered yes and started to dig out the card, but she said, "I do not need to see the card." Which makes us think everyone gets the discount which makes it a meaningless joke. Directions to get to the park were somewhat difficult to follow. Good level sites with good hookups but no excuse for the large tree limb and all the litter. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Rate is Good Sam. Fairly basic park, good for an over night stop. Fairly easy off and on from I-30. Mostly full timers-90% or more. WiFi available but slow to connect. Park was clean, large no frills pull through sites in back of the park. Would stay again for over-night. We camped here in a Motorhome.
For a over nighter, it was good. Easy off from I-30 and traffic noise all night long. Mostly people living there full time - 90% or more. Park was clean, lady in office was very nice, plenty of places to eat close by, and nice pull throughs sites. I'd stop here for another one nighter if I have to but never longer. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Fairly basic park with many work campers right off the interstate. Large no frills sites with plenty of room to stay hooked up. The staff was friendly as were the neighbors. A good place to overnight. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Park is right off of I-30 but you would not know it because it is so quiet. Sites are level and the gentleman that owns the park escorted us to our site. He was also very helpful when finding out about things to do in Hot Springs and Little Rock. The bathhouse was clean and had several new washers and dryers available. There is also a very pretty lake at the back of the park with a gazebo and picnic tables. There are several permanent residents but the spots were very clean and did not distract from the park. We enjoyed our stay and will go back here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We have camped here many times through the years as an overnight stop only. We were dismayed to learn that the rate had gone up almost $10 per night. Supposedly "free Wi-Fi" had been added. The Wi-Fi was terrible; we could not get on at all, until the next morning when all the permanent residents had gone to work, and then it was agonizingly slow. Supposedly the new owner is making improvements. What they were we couldn't tell. It is still just a gravel parking lot right on the interstate. The lady in the office is very nice and apologized for the rate increase. On our instructions was a phone number to be called only in case of emergency with utilities. Quite a contrast to other parks we stayed in, who said to call if we needed anything. Sign on trash dumpster (one for whole park) said to carry your trash back to your rig if dumpster was full, which it was, so I did. We will look for another stopover when we are traveling across Arkansas. As far as being "kid friendly," I think there was a swing set, but the swimming pool has been filled in. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate based on a month. Other rates high for a park needing much work. New owner supposed to have plans for enhancing with more concrete patios? Wi-Fi very slow and weak. Mud bog when it rains. Much gravel and site leveling needed. Many opportunities for improvement to make this a great park. Too many long-term older units! OK for overnight but could be much better. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We called this park from the road to make sure they had sites available. Upon our request, and after telling the lady in the office that we were coming West on US-30, we were given directions for traveling East. After attempting to locate the park, along with a totally confused GPS and several call backs to the office, we located the park sometime after dark. We obtained registration info from the night registration box and found our site. The park was crowded with long term residents, with only a few sites available for big rigs. Once we were set up, we used their bathrooms and showers which were found to be old, dirty and in disrepair. Both showers have access doors to the laundry which anyone can use, male or female. The men shower was dirty with plenty of evidence of recent use without cleaning. The woman's showers were dirty with long black hairs spread around. One of the faucets in the woman's shower had no hot water, and another had a bench falling off of the wall. Upon completing the registration info, we were referred to the rate schedule posted on the door. Upon a closer look, we found no rate schedule at all. Wanting to leave early, and the office not being open, we guessed at the appropriate amount and deposited same through the slot in the door. Although this park is one of the very few in the area, we will pass it up the next time passing through the area. We gave the park a "2" rating only because it was there. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Convenient park to be near relatives. Beware that the park is now full of long-term folks due to an overabundance of already long-termers plus addition of two local working crews here for several months. Available overnight sites are few so get here early or call ahead. Staying here for a month. We enjoy the park because we are former residents of Benton and know the area well. Staff is friendly and accommodating. 3G AT&T data service works well using an air card. Sites are primarily gravel with small strips of grass/weeds between. Leveling takes a little work but better than some we have visited. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Although this park is very convenient to most of my family, it does not have wifi, and the long term rigs have several broken down vehicles around the park. That makes it appear less safe. Although I think it is safe, it looks bad. We stay at another park if we are in town more than one night. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
While this is an older park without many amenities, it is a handy place for overnight stopovers when traveling out I-30. We have stayed here many times for a number of years. We know that we can always pull into a long, level site without disconnecting our tow vehicle and have 50 amp service. The highway noise has never bothered us; probably because we are running the air conditioning. If you pass this park up, it's a pretty good distance across Arkansas heading east until the next park. We definitely will stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The interstate noise is very loud. The sites consist of mostly people that live there. We stayed here a year ago, and it has not changed for the better. They need to upgrade a lot. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We have used this park before to overnight while traveling. It's easy on and easy off the interstate and that is all that matters. Not a destination park but great for travelers. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Clean, well kept, but old and had many permanent residents. Very close to the highway-lots of truck noise all night. Very convenient on and off and fine for a day or so. We were there for 3 days and would not use it as a base for sight-seeing again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Park is clean and maintained well. Pull through sites in the back are long and level. We had no trouble navigating the interior roads and site with our 43' rig. Site was open with good satellite reception. While just off I-30, we were not bothered by road noise. We will continue to use this campground for overnight stays. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The laundry was a little inconvenient. The camp ground was very close to the interstate. You heard the traffic all day and night long. It was easy to get to. The host was nice. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here on the way to and from Virginia for Christmas. For a one nighter this is fine. Easy to get around in and fairly level. I would probably stay here again for the convenience. Folks were very helpful. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Definitely a one-night stay place. Somewhat confusing directions when exiting I-30 westbound. A big dirt parking lot with the last two rows seemingly reserved for one-night stays. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This was a stop-over just to get off the road so we could eat and sleep. The park was old with sites that had been redone to accommodate larger rigs, although they were not level and still rough. No store for purchasing needs and restrooms we didn't even look for. Would not stop again, the price wasn't reflective of what was provided. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Easy to access from I-30. Excellent transit park, pull throughs for any size. no special amenities,town of Benton is a town with all the restaurants,Lowes, etc you could want. Utilities well located for easy access. Will stay here again in transit to TN/NC. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is just an average campground, nothing special, but alright for overnight. About 75% of the sites have permanent residents on them. Overnighters are in the back of the park. Sites are level pull throughs, so you don't have to unhook. The park is big rig friendly. The office is an A-Frame, probably used to be a KOA. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is right on I-30 but rather hard to get to. Follow the directions in the Trailer Life Directory. Roads are gravel. Sites are gravel & level with some side by side hookups. Big rigs will have no problem here. There are a lot of permanent residents, but they are mostly on sites away from the overnighters. We always stay here when traveling through Benton. We camped here in a Motorhome.
After my wife and I bought our first trailer, I wanted to take it out and learn how to set it up before we took it to Branson. I wanted to stay close in case anything happened, so we stayed here (less than three miles away from home). The man that I talked to first was very nice and helpful. The office staff was all right, but did answer my questions. I was surprised at how nice and clean the bathrooms were. The park was very clean. Even though it is just down the street from me, I plan on going back just to get away from the home life sometimes. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
[ 9 / 10 ]
Large gravel pull-through's and shaded back in sites. Access off of I-30 made somewhat challenging by the road construction. Mild highway noise. Friendly staff, large pavilion and meeting room available. Will return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a nice little campground. It is perfect for an overnight stay. Nice pull through and fairly level. The owner is nice and helpful. Has a pond where you can catch fish. There are also two washer and dyers at the restrooms which came in handy. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a good spot for an overnight stay. Interior roads are gravel as are the sites which were fairly level. Picnic table with nice grass area at site. We had a pull through space and getting in and out was a little tight for our length, but we managed. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Small, wonderful campground that we will definitely stop at again. The sites were under tall trees for shade, level, and could handle longer rigs. The owner was very helpful, friendly, and drove us directly to our site which had all hookups. Did not need showers or laundry facilities so could not rate them. We were there only one night. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice park, small, but very accommodating for big rigs. Pull through sites were under tall pines and shaded. Sites were packed stone, nice width, extra long. Plenty of room for 40' fifth wheel and tow vehicle. Small laundry facilities but clean and neat. Limited number of full hook up sites (we only had electric and water). Walking distance to small pond for fishing. Owner very friendly and helpful. Only stayed 1 night, but would stay again. Convenient to Interstate 30. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Campground is located just off I-30, but trees block any noise. The owner was helpful and escorted us to our site--a long pull through which was level. There is a nice pavilion overlooking the large pond. Only cash or checks are accepted. As it is convenient to I-30, and we would stop here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
My family stayed here for 2 nights while visiting the sights in Little Rock and Hot Springs. Extremely easy access to the interstate. The park is in a country setting with lots of shade, a beautiful lake and very clean restrooms and showers. They have brand new washers and dryers in the front of the bath house also. My boys loved running around and exploring. The owners were great and extremely helpful with what all we could see and do. We will definitely be staying here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Stayed one night while on the road. Easy on & off to I-30, only about a city block away from on-ramp. But large trees blocked most of the traffic noise so that wasn't a problem. They don't accept any discounts like Good Sam & only accept cash or check for payment. No Wi-Fi or cable TV (but our antenna worked well). Person checking us in was filling in & was very friendly & showed us to our site. Appears there are large number of permanent people. Gravel on roads & sites; our site was fairly level. Restrooms & showers were very outdated & not so nice. I was thankful we didn't need to use them. I noticed there were 4 washers & dryers, again pretty outdated & I didn't need to use them. We wouldn't stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed one night while traveling. Easy on & off from I-30. Grass and gravel roads & sites. Large trees blocked most of the traffic noise so not a problem. No Wi-Fi or cable TV. Our site was fairly level. Restrooms & showers needed updating, but were clean. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a small RV park but it is very clean. It is easy to get to from the interstate and they have long pull-through sites. We were escorted to our site. Owners were very nice. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a nice quiet clean park that is easy access to I-30. Nice shade trees. We needed a space that had water and electric only. The owner was super nice. My 2 year old grandson loved walking down the country road meeting some of the animals that were in the nearby pastures. Will stay here again We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Easy access from interstate. Quiet campground. We arrived after dark without a reservation. A young man came out to meet us, collect our money (cash only), and directed us to a fairly level gravel pull-through site. No full hook-ups were available, so we had a water-electric site. This campground is okay for an overnight stay while enroute. And we would probably stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This campground was your basic wooded area. Site was fairly level, clean. Quiet and secluded. Owners were friendly and helpful. Was easy to find. Nice lake but we did not fish. We were here only as a stop over but would not hesitate to recommend to others. Can't say about bathroom or showers as we did not use them. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Have stayed here several times from one night to a month. All other reviews are accurate. Quiet, easy on off I-30 access, long wide pull through sites, safe. The owner is about as friendly as they come. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is the second time we have stayed at this nice quiet park. Although close to I-30, the road noise almost non-existent. Friendly owner who guided us to roomy pull-through site. Most local TV stations (except CBS) were available with our roof antenna. Very nice overnight stop. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I chose this campground from a sign on I-30, mainly because I was tired of driving! I got there at about 8 pm. The office was closed, but there was a note saying to "fill out" the envelope and drop it in the mail slot. The envelope had nothing to fill out. Apparently you are supposed to put the money in for the night and leave it. It was odd that there were no forms to fill out. I called both phone numbers listed at the office, but got only voice mail. The sites are mostly dirt/gravel, and did not seem very level. I chose a paved site, which was $2 more, but nice and level. The bathrooms/showers are "rustic," but the water was hot and clean with no odor. The next morning I called and got the manager, who came out after about 15 minutes and took my check. He was very friendly, like most people in the South! I would probably stay here again, but I really wish they would get Wi-Fi, as I missed that. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stopped for 3 nights in the rainy season so it rained all three days over the weekend. The sites are long. There are pull throughs that are elevated and long enough for the bigger rigs. The owner was very friendly and helpful. There are lots of trees in this park so we had difficulty getting satellite with our dome. We fortunately had a portable dish. The exit back onto I30 going toward Missouri is directly across from JB Baxley Rd and the entrance to the park. You just pull across 69 and onto the entrance ramp. This is not marked so can be tricky. We would certainly stop here again. No WiFi and no cable. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A little hard to find if you take the wrong exit, thank you Garmin. Be sure to take exit 106 and follow the signs. JB's is a small park tucked back in the woods off of I-30. You do get some road noise from I-30 but not bad. The pull-through sites are very large and spaced nicely. Laundry facilities are in the restroom which were all clean and well maintained. Very nice stop on our way west. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This was a fine place for an overnight stop. Easy on/off highway and easy to find and no noticeable highway noise. They offer no discounts but at $21 night I guess it shouldn't be expected! The pull through sites are long enough although there is a hill either into or out of all of them. There is a lot of space for dog walking around the property. This is mostly a seasonal campground but the residents were pleasant enough. We would return here for a night or two if we are in the area again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great little campground in the pines. Welcomed and escorted to the only totally level site we've had on our trip. We didn't even need to unhook from the truck! Told to settle in and come pay later. Very friendly, lots of room. We walked part way around the pond. There are a number of long-term RVs but nothing looked trashy. Very pleasant stay, easy in and out, good truck stop across the highway. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
