About what you would expect from a fairgrounds. We stayed in the area with long term residents so there were some messy sites. The other choice was to stay on the pavement near the buildings. Easy off of I-30 but the road is under construction so there is road noise. We camped here in a Motorhome.
$20 with Good Sam discount. Major construction on the exit requires you to drive south to then backtrack into the fairgrounds. There are two sections. The long term section is all dirt and dusty with mostly very old campers & such. The overnight parking is on a big paved circle with numbered boxes for power. You cannot get the box unlocked until after 4PM when the help shows up. Or rather was supposed to show up. We waited until 4:30 and called the office only to be told the guy was up at the office and would show up shortly. Once connected we were happy campers. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a great stopover point along I-30. BUT, the bathhouse/restrooms are horrible. No improvement since last Thanksgiving. You have to walk through a muddy lot to get to a dirty unkempt bathhouse in the arena. People are living in the restroom area. I will report to Good Sams and also to the Four States Fairground board. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here one night while passing through the area. It is a large fairground and you park on the road beside a power box. The strange part is waiting until 4 PM when the attendant comes on duty to open the power box. Unless you hit a ‘fair’ time you should be able to find a spot and hook everything except your power before the office opens. The park is quiet and while there we had no traffic passing us during the evening. Coming off the interstate the entrance to the park is on the left about 300’ beyond the traffic light. The driveway winds around causing you to question if you have come in the wrong entrance. There are many places to eat around the park requiring limited drive time. We would return if in the area. Some of the folks we met while there had camped there several times. We camped here in a Motorhome.
New 50 amp electric service since I was last here. Over the Air TV available and good 3G wireless service. The park was sold out Friday and Saturday. By Sunday it was only 1/2 full. We have used this CG for overnight stops for 10 years. Good security at night. There is a playground for kids. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The rates on their website are not current. Rate is $18 per night unless you stay 5 nights or more, then it is $16 per night. The trash cans were full when we got there and overflowing when we left 6 days later. The showers were filthy. Some water spigots need attention as they leak profusely. Rating would be lower but the low cost makes it a better deal. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a great stop-over park or if you are doing things in the area as we were, also good. The one thing I would recommend improving is the quality of the bathrooms and shower/house. Lighting was poor, generally dirty condition, but functional. Also the pathway to get there was via a muddy road. Wi-Fi in the circle would be a big plus. I will pass along my comments to the FSFG management. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park is about the best bargain around for an overnight or no-frills longer stay. It is on the fairgrounds and consists basically of a large wide circular road with RV utility posts and trash receptacles spaced at regular intervals in the middle of the road. Each post can handle an RV parked on either one or both sides. Picking a spot furthest from the nearby freeway can lessen any traffic noise. Free wireless internet access was available when I stayed there. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Another thumbs UP for Four States RV Park! Asphalt paved, spacious, water and sewer hook-ups at each site. They accept cash or check only. Good Sams discounted rate: $18.00. $20.00 without per night. 30AMP & 50AMP at each site. There is NO cable TV, we're talking bare bones - which is what I like and clean, which is what I like too! Basically a spacious parking lot, operated by the Kiwanis Club. One of the employees very helpful and courteous - easygoing. Just off I-30 and go south on Hwy. 245 exit south on your left. You have to go south to Arkansas Blvd. exit, then come back north over the over pass and turn north on the access/feeder road. No Wi-Fi! Quiet and serene, with a distant train tracks about 1.5 miles south Union Pacific that sooths you as it passes a couple crossings. A definite winner in Texarkana, Arkansas side. I'll stay here every time, just pull in and pay at your leisure. The hours are from 4 PM to 7 AM on weekdays, and 24-hours attended on weekends. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Much better than spending the night in a big box store parking lot. Trees for people who want them, no trees for the satellite folks. Park on asphalt. Great for 1 or 2 nights if you don't care about any infrastructure. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We called for information ahead of time, and left a message. The return call, within an hour, was very helpful and friendly. Access to interstate is good, and easy to find. We parked in a circular fashion around a nicely landscaped (for New Years Eve) park. Got Good Sam discount. Parked near the Ag Learning Center, and found a strong internet signal. It was quiet, and we left the next morning without incident. Found it a good overnight experience and would stop again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We left the Monty here as we drove North to WI for granddaughter's B-Day. The rest rooms left a lot to be desired. The price was right($12 per night as we were staying more than 5 days) and was cheaper than pulling the Monty north and paying for the diesel. The best rest room is right to the left of the office in the cattle barn. We would stay here again to travel north for party. Otherwise no. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Great one night stop. They do have a nice area in the center with trees, grass and picnic tables. Easy in and out if you don't miss the first left turn which just off the I-30 ramp. No sign and we thought it was a service road. We will stay there again. We had a 33' trailer. They have security all night. The Kiwanis Club runs it and the office is open from 4 P.M. to about 8 or 9 A.M. We will stay there again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Our group used two sites for a one night stop. They do have a nice area in the center with trees, grass and picnic tables. Easy in and out if you don't miss the first left turn which just off the I-30 ramp. No sign and we thought it was a service road. We will stay there again. We had a 33' trailer and a 37' fifth wheel. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
It is rather hard to describe this place. The web site shows pictures. The rv sites were in the middle of the fairgrounds where all the food venders would be located during the fair. The paved rv area was in a circle four driving lanes wide. The hookups were in the middle with two lanes on each side. This made side by side hookups with rvs parked on the two inside lanes, sort of like parallel parking. Some of the electrical boxes didn't look to be in very good repair, so check them before you pick a site. You pay security, which comes in at 4PM and stays until 7AM. This doesn't sound very good, but it was so much better that Sterling Crest (we stayed there once, see reviews) and much less expensive than the KOA. We will stay here again next time we are in Texarkana. We camped here in a Motorhome.
If you don't have a camper with a shower or bathroom you wouldn't want to stay here. No facilities were available during our stay. Just a huge asphalt parking lot with rv spaces. We've been back to Texarkana since our fist stay here and have chosen other campgrounds. This one is okay if you just want a spot to park for the night. We camped here in a Truck Camper.
Nice, level site park but a way from the Interstate and shower/restroom unheated. Single male and female shower/bath so if in use you need to wait. Manager courteous and friendly. Trains close but don't run often at night. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We were very disappointed in this park. The grass hadn't been mowed - probably all summer. The restrooms were awful....dirty and poorly maintained; the doors looked like they were ready to fall off. It obviously had been a nice park at one time; the sites were concrete and hookups were in nice brick stands but is very run down. The staff was very friendly and helpful but couldn't make up for the poor condition overall. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed here on our way through Arkansas. The staff was very friendly. I called ahead and told the manager the size of our camper, he said "no problem" the sites were plenty big enough for us. They were not, the roads are narrow and the sites are very, very small and extremely hard to get in or out of. The other campers were very nice and helped us get our camper parked in the spot finally after we had to back it up into the grassy yard behind another camper to get it lined up on the spot. The WiFi was the best thing about this park. The restrooms, if you can call them that, were dirty and resembled wooden outhouses. We will never stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park is just off the I-30 frontage road. Easy in and out. The park appeared to be entirely gravel. Our site was level with convenient utilities. Friendly office staff. The dog walk area appears to be the park leaching field. We camped here in a Motorhome.
So-so. Staff is very friendly. However, staff gave out incomplete/incorrect information. Said all sites were 30 amp only and all sites "are the same". We pulled in while raining and proceeded to set up to find out it was 50 amp and we had no adapter. We moved (in the rain). Set up and hooked up electricity then to find out this site had no water spigot therefore they were not "all the same". (I will add we're in our brand new fifth wheel therefore a bit "out of whack" regarding setting up an organized manner.) We ran two hoses and filled our tank. It is an older part of town, but has a gate that locks at night and we felt safe. There are apartments and a policeman was there visiting family members. You had better like train yards (as opposed to simply train tracks). Very loud train stuff all the time. We were gone most of the time visiting family so only heard this at night. It is OK for a stop-over. Concrete pads. Grass could use mowing. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Worst park I have paid to stay in. I agree with the three previous reviews. Only wish I had read them before I pulled into the park. Never should have stayed. Park is very run down and housed what appears to be numerous long term, dislocated individuals. Definitely felt like an unsafe park. Initially I was impressed with the "gated community" aspect. Then feared that I was housed in a very unsafe community. Please do NOT stay here. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The woman who checked us in was so friendly & nice but not the owner. I hate to write such a bad review, but this park is simply a Redneck Hillbilly Heaven at best. Wi-Fi was good, but that's the only redeeming factor. Sites on top of one another and unsanitary hookups; our site had our water spigot right beside sewer dump in ground, and I mean inches beside..eewww! We did not use!! Restroom building looked like right out of the Deliverance movie, very dilapidated wooden structure. Advertisement in Passport America directory book is totally misleading; said to be a gated community RV park with domed heated pool, etc. Pool dry, no TV cable. Park is really run down & has motel with cars with flat tires, etc. We didn't even unhook our car. Would never stay here again if back in Texarkana. Worst place we've stayed in our 13 years RVing. Sorry but true. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Neighborhood is mechanical/industrial. There was some kind of halfway house on the next block, but it was not a residential setting. CG and apartment complex share property; apartments are extremely shabby, junk cars, stuff hanging on railings. Most of park appeared to be permanent party, rigs were shabby and old. Only saw one resident walking around, and he didn't look reputable. Didn't feel safe, drove away within 10-20 minutes. Roads difficult to navigate, mh barely squeezed through the driveway around the apartments. Drive was one way; assuming the driveway circled out, I pulled out of site onto the main drive to discover the apartments had an 8' wrought iron bridge, barring exit. Rather than get out to unhook the Toad and back up, I chose to drive over a curb, over the lawn into a glass littered parking lot of a closed business next door just to get out of there. Manager not on grounds on Sunday, had told me by phone I could pay the next morning. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I would not stay here again. We were traveling and used one of the popular RV books to find a place to overnight. This place is not very near or convenient to the interstate in my opinion. I wish I had looked at the reviews here at this website before calling and getting there. I could go on and on but do not really need to. There is a KOA near the interstate on the Texas side of Texarcana that is too expensive for what is there, but I would stay there instead if I needed a place to stop. I thought about giving a lower score than a 3 but they did have concrete drive and pads. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I agree with most of the comments regarding trains, sites and condition of the place. I can tell you this is the only "park" I truly felt uncomfotable walking after dark in with my wife. So I wouldn't!! Better to pull off at a Walmart anyday!!! We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a Passport America Park. I can not think of anything positive to say about this park. First, it is not in a very good part of town. It is across the street from the train switch yard, so it is very noisy. It was rather hard to get a big rig in through the gates, trees, etc. Our site was supposed to be a pull through. I call it a pull off beside the road site. When our slides were extended, they were in the road. We put out orange cones to keep them from being hit. The site was crumbling concrete. The absolute worst part was when we looked for the water connection. There was a metal plate on the crumbling concrete. When removed, BOTH water AND sewer were down there. Needless to say, we did not use the water. I could go on, but this is enough. We will not stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I would never stay here again, mainly because the railroad was across the street and it was a switching station. What a lot of noise! We had planned to stay two nights, but nixed that idea really fast. We camped here in a Motorhome.
RV area needs repairs to the electric. Gates close at 5:00 so unless someone has a pass card to
let you in, you are out of luck. Nice looking park but the noise from trains across the street is very bad. Sounds like a connecting yard with banging noise, whistles, etc. Sometimes sounds like they are coming through the campground. If one likes trains, this is a perfect place. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Called and made reservation before we arrived. Manager on site and was very helpful at check in. Fairly new park and site was level. Entire park done in rock, not gravel. We had excellent cable and over night stop was easy on and off. We would stay here again over night. Good Sam rate. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We made a reservation over the phone about a week before we arrived. When we arrived 12:30pm on a Monday, there was no one in the office. A sign on the door said to "Use the Nighttime Check-in" rules. I found an envelope and followed it's instructions and found a pretty decent site. Gravel, level, no trees, FHU. TV Cable good, WiFi good (although could never get my phone to connect but laptop was OK. The check in paper said their office hours were 1 - 7pm. At 1:30 I filled out the papers and returned to the office. Still no one. I left the papers in the drop box. Never saw any campground personnel. There were no instructions about check in/check out times, instructions for trash, etc. This campground has the potential to be a very good campground but needs better management and communications. Noise from I-30 was a little loud at times, and there was a faint odor of sewage in the air. I marked the veteran rate. I gave this Campground a 5 because of the lack of communications and lack of any one operating the park. Would probably recommend this place to others, and we would stay here again if in the area (knowing the lack of communications.) We camped here in a Motorhome.
The management at this park is a joke. My family and I stayed here for about one month. Office is hardly ever open. Heard the manager's daughter tell another child "my mom is the owner so you have to do what I say or she will kick you out". The initial impression of this park and management was good. After spending some time here though, unfortunately, that does not seem to be the case. The bathrooms (which they pride themselves on) have been absolutely filthy on many occasions. Not a place I will be staying ever again nor would I recommend it to anyone. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

In the category of "nice place for an overnight stay while traveling", this place is great. Others will slam this campground for lack of shade or the fact that it's just an open area with hookups, but keep in mind not all campgrounds are designed as destination campgrounds. This is extremely convenient and easy on/off from I-30, right behind the Flying J. Sites are very large and easy to maneuver for any size rig. Very level and hookups are all new and in good working order. The restroom and shower facilities are over the top nice, clean, and modern. Perhaps the nicest we have ever seen! They do have a nice looking pool, but we didn't have time to enjoy. Some have complained about highway noise from I-30. Good grief, folks, if that bothers you, you probably have sleep issues that "quiet" won't cure. While walking to the restrooms around midnight, I noted that while you can indeed hear interstate traffic, it's not loud, and certainly not bothersome. I would have no problem sleeping with all the windows open, in fact. This is one of those places that's a challenge to rate - rating with other destination campgrounds (which this is not) it would only score a 6 or 7. Rating it for what it IS, as handy, clean, modern overnight campground, it could rate a 9+. We'll definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Friendly hosts. Park was less than half full. Sites are small. A lot of road noise from I-30. Did notice a septic smell> Not overpowering but it was noticeable. Nice cable selection and Wi-Fi worked flawlessly. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I agree with all the previous comments about the campground staff and the amenities. However, do not stay here unless you are stone deaf! The traffic noise from I-30 is loud, constant and ran all night. It was compounded by the frequent trains that all blew their horn at least 4 times each for about 5 seconds each blast. Seemed like the trains went through about every half hour. We even tried to sleep with noise cancelling head phones on and they couldn't drown out the trains and traffic. Otherwise this would be a great park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Convenient location off of highway. Friendly and helpful Staff. Excellent site layout all gravel/stone but very level. Rest rooms/showers/laundry are all a top 10 rating, no exaggeration. Overall I would stay again, biggest negative is no shade. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
I would definitely stay here again when passing through. The campground is well laid out with easy pull through access. Staff was top notch with a personal escort to our site. The bathroom facilities were immaculate and the campground itself was very well maintained. As one of the other reviewers commented, there is no shade so this would probably be a little hot in the summer if you were staying for the day. The campground is about a 1/2 mile from a Flying J/Denny's, which makes it convenient to refuel when coming or leaving. The only negative we noted is that you do get I-30 traffic noise. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Saw this clean-looking park from I-30, and turned around and came back instead of going to another Passport America park. This is a fairly new park, that is laid out very well with long pull-through sites, nice level stone pads, nice clubhouse, pool, showers, etc. Each site has 50 amp, water, sewer, cable TV, and really great WiFi. While there are a fair number of seasonal campers, they all had nice, new rigs and were well-maintained. Since it is a rather new park, there are no shade trees; however, I would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We used this as simply an overnight stop on our way east. Very nice campground: clean and well trimmed. Seemed to have ample pull through sites for those of us who shoe up without a reservation. The predominate population was workers/full time folks. However, they were quiet and their sites very clean. We will stop here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Good location close to I-30 for overnight if it's too hot to dry camp at Wal-mart. Long-term no way. Just a big parking lot covered with gravel. Lot's of permanent residents giving the place a TPT feel (Trailer park Tr***). That being said, had no problems and we were happy with the place for that one night. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rather new with well maintained gravel drives and hook up areas. Perfect facilities. This is a great stop over on our way to and from Aransas Pass, TX each fall and spring. Well maintained and clean as a whistle. If you like Flying J, it is on the same exit from I-30. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very convenient park for overnight stays when traveling on I-30 near Texarkana. Flying J is nearby for easy fill ups. Park is clean and people are friendly. Parking spots are gravel but there are nice grassy areas to walk the dog. We have stopped there at least three times and will do so again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Another big parking lot with easy access to and from the freeway. Good cable and Wi-Fi. This was perfect for an overnight stop. Not a destination location. We would stay again if passing through. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Another huge gravel parking lot with hookups. Park full of workers for a new power plant. Very narrow site, we stayed hooked up to fit on site. All new hookups and large (selection of) cable TV. Very nice rec room with internet. The 7 is for the wonderful pool. It was the only relief from the blistering heat with not a bit of shade. Office staff was very nice. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
$34 rate reflects Good Sam discount. This RV Park has clean, washed gravel sites. Sites are Big Rig friendly, level, did not have to unhook our towed vehicle. But, when slides were out, very tight to next Big Rig. Easy on; easy off access. Lots of sites in back accommodated working campers, but everyone was considerate / quiet. Noise level high from road, but we used CG for an overnight and were so tired it didn't matter. Staff was friendly and efficient. Would use this as an overnight again, but not for any longer. Stones throw to Flying J. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Gravel road and sites, easy access to I-30 and Flying J. Sites are not wide enough. With our slide out and our neighbor's slide out, I could reach out my window and touch their RV. The park was full by 7pm both nights we stayed. Moderate train noise with the RV fan running. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Gravel roads and sites, easy in and out. Very convenient to Interstate and Flying-J at the exit. That leads to one of the negatives, noise from the highway and the railroad across from the highway. It can be heard. Otherwise very nice park, laundry neat and clean. Guide to your site, which are very close together, and help getting set up if desired. Would stay again if in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here overnight while passing through. It was a nice, clean park with level pull-through sites in gravel. The restrooms were extremely clean and well-decorated. The free Wi-Fi and cable was an added bonus. My only complaint is that, while the "transient" area was relatively empty, another rig was parked right next to us and the manager could have skipped a site or two so that another rig isn't on top of you. Their outside door light shown in our bedroom window all night long. I would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We arrived close to midnight. We had called ahead and gotten instructions. The person answering the phone was very friendly and informative. We checked in after hours and followed the instructions. The lot if gravel but it is nice gravel and groomed. The bathhouse was VERY VERY nice. Decorated and extremely clean. Secured with a lock so that you felt safe when in there taking a shower. No trees but who cares, it was an overnight stop. Close to a Flying-J and very close to interstate. However, far enough away you didn't hear the traffic. Very well maintained. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice managers, but nothing else was noteworthy about this park. Basically a big gravel parking lot with staggered pull-through sites. No trees, no grass, no tables, but lots of noise. Between the roar of the highway noise, the Jake Brakes of trucks exiting the interstate for the adjacent Flying J, and the sound of tires crunching the deep gravel, it made for a restless night. Good free cable TV and WiFi, and Verizon cell and Aircard worked well. Lots of long term workers leaving in the morning, although their rigs were well cared for. We had to stay here due to a mechanical problem, but will pass in the future. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great park with friendly owners. Stayed one night and would go back. Cable TV and wi-fi worked great. Park has no shade, but at least they are growing trees. Spots were gravel but level. Very convenient to town and easy to get on and off I-30. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Pretty plain Jane place, but everything is as advertised and the people running it are tops. Level sites, Cable and easy satellite access and Wi-Fi that actually worked!! No natural beauty so it is not a destination but for one or two nights it is hard to beat..Flying-J near by is also a plus. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a good park for an overnight stop, and is clearly a work in progress as the new owners/managers are working their behinds off to make it a good park. There is new gravel throughout the park for sites and roads, a fenced dog run, new renovations everywhere but it's still a work in progress so it will be interesting to see where the park ends up in a year or two. The utilities were very good and the Wi-Fi was acceptable, but occasionally slow. The camphost was very friendly. What they can do: the sites, at least in the overnight area, are too close together. We were situated with a "gap" or empty site between us and the folks on either side, but we were as close to the folks 2 sites away as we would be if they were in the adjacent spot in a standard spacing. The mosquitoes are 2 to 4 times the size of any we had ever seen and very aggressive. We didn't see any standing water but they were everywhere. Some kind of mitigation is definitely needed. What they can't do anything about: road noise from I-30 and a nearby train. Again, a good overnight stop if you happen to be in the area and they are clearly working hard to improve the park. Give them time and it should be easy to rate it higher next time. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The only drawbacks for this park were the lack of any shade at all and the rocks in the entire area. I was there one night and stayed inside so it was not a problem but if you had children or were there for several days I can see where that would be difficult to manage. The staff was very friendly and I would recommend it for short stays. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice overnight. Owners very friendly and helpful. There is not a single tree and the entire camping area is covered with rocks (1" to 1 1/2" diameter). Very uncomfortable walking. The location shown on the map is incorrect. It is actually located where the map shows Texarkana RV Park to be located. Park is about 1/4 mile from Flying J. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Plain Jane park, no landscaping, there is a pool, and a swing set. Clean bathrooms. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
[ 6 / 10 ]
No frills gravel slips next to interstate. Great for a quick overnighter. Park is new and still under construction when we were there. Large with plenty of room to maneuver. Staff was friendly. Would stay again. Felt safe. We camped here in a Motorhome.
They are not officially opened. Well they are, but they are still building. By what they have completed so far, you can see how marvelous it will be. The shower house has the BEST setup ever. You have your own shower stall with a lock and has so much room. They are brand new and a very classy style. Once completed this place feels as if it will be a 5 Star Resort. Located right on I-30, exit #7 in Arkansas and you can hear the noise but no trains nearby. They have Wi-Fi, cable TV, playground, swimming pool, laundry, store and dump station to name just a few of their features. We will definitely return to this park on our future travels. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I agree with comments made by other user, the other thing was there nothing in the office as far as supplies go, and it also had a very pungent odor. The good thing about the campground it is only about 1/4 mile from a Flying J We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
