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.
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.
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.
