This is a really beautiful and lovingly maintained COE campground right on the Arkansas River, southeast of Pine Bluff. Huge trees shelter every site and you have a choice of nestling in a grove of them, or staying right on the waterfront. The couple who take care of this place are friendly, helpful and have done a tremendous job maintaining it on inadequate federal funds. No great number of services or attractions, but as much quiet and relaxation as you could want. Cellular data signal was fair to good. Yes, the bathrooms are still waiting for the maintenance mentioned in the previous review, but that in no way diminished my enjoyment of this gorgeous and peaceful campground. It was so nice that I stayed an extra night. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice campground with sites scattered around. Water was OK but our 30 amp power voltage was high and at 7:30 am exceeded the 132v limit of our EMS shutting our RV down intermittently. Verizon cell phone and hotspot worked well. Too many trees around our sire to use rooftop TV dish. Some sites needed trees trimmed. Be careful backing into sites as there are ditches on either side. Large open grassy areas. Paved roads and pads. Two dollar senior discount from $20 nightly fee. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
It features wide open spaces, on river and next to a golf course. A jewel if city would pay for up keep. There are two dump stations. Only a few sites have 50 amp. Many sites have broken electric hookups this along with broken picnic tables, tarred asphalt sites are not level and not easy to access due culverts dips for drainage ditch. I would stay here again only because the people in the Pine Bluff area are among the most friendly I have had the pleasure to meet. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We camped here for one night on the way to Branson. Excellent campground for that purpose. Beautiful setting abutted by a Lake and golf course. Abundant deer roam freely on the edges of the campground. Clean and well kept. Only cons are no sewer hook ups and no cable. However, for a one night stopover, it is about all one could ask for. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Return visit was just as great as the first visit. It is quiet, peaceful, great view of the lake, lots of grass for the dogs, very quiet. The manager is wonderful and does a great job keeping up with everything. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Monthly and weekly rates available. Campsites are well spaced out, quiet, near golf course and boat launching ramp into Lake Langhofer and the Arkansas River. RV park is located two miles into Regional Park. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Larger, really large spaces with a lot of space between sites. Large shade trees throughout the park. NO restrooms nor showers. Got a nice golf course adjoining. Close to town, not walking distance. Eat at SNOW WHITE'S GRILL it is downtown. Good Eats. We would return. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This COE campground is actually about five miles east of Redfield, not really close to Pine Bluff, about halfway up to Little Rock along I-540. The campground is linear along the main channel of the Arkansas River, as well as having a loop area not on the water. Check-in inefficient, slow, had to find attendant (that alone took 20 minutes). Posted instructions for registration were vague. Shade and open sites available, with numerous waterfront sites. Sites are level, with both paved and concrete pads. Our concrete pad had long remnant parking barrier rebars hammered over to within one inch of the concrete pad, creating two serious tripping hazards. Space between sites were both huge and snug, according to where you were. Picnic tables were under shelters. No swimming or wading, but boat launching is available. Beautiful view of the water. Children's playground nice. Speed bumps were sometimes small, other times ridiculously massive. Hookups included water & electric, with each box lit at night, nice touch. Dump station at exit, well designed. CSpire phone service 2 bars voice, one trillionth G data. When the sun goes down, get inside... it's mosquito time! House flies also common. Quiet and dark at night. Good for an overnight stay or if you are into boating or fishing. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Park is actually in Redfield, about 15 miles north of Pine Bluff. We had to delay getting in by a day and a call to the campground connected us to a very pleasant host who changed our reservation/arrival date. Well maintained Corps of Engineers park with nice sites right on the Arkansas River. Our site was a little tight to get into with a 40 foot fifth wheel, but not terribly difficult. Great riverfront location, very quiet and peaceful. Sites are paved/concrete, with a covered picnic table, fire ring/grille, and movable post for hanging a light or trashbag at every site. No sewer, but there was a dumpsite on the way out - probably too tight for us to get into, so we didn't try. Only real negative was the horseflies - big guys that were out primarily in the early mornings. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Tar Camp COE (Corps of Engineers) campground is a lovely site on the Arkansas River between Little Rock and Pine Bluff, Arkansas. It is about 5 or 6 miles from Interstate 530 at the Redfield exit. The sites in the newest section (Section D) are very large and include a covered picnic table. The only complaint is the very fine stone used to pave around the campsite. It really sticks to your shoes and tracks into the RV. The pads are concrete back-ins. Water and both 30 and 50 amp service are available. Sewer hook-ups are not available, and the dump station pull through is very tight for large motorhomes. I elected not to try it. Also pay attention to the trees on some sites. We had to move to a different site due to low overhanging limbs on our original site. We enjoyed a great hamburger at the Mammoth Orange Café in nearby Redfield and found a good coin laundry which is on River Road on the way to the campground. We camped here in a Motorhome.
