14 Parks near Alexander, Arkansas
Sep 2014 - $17.00
Rate shown is Passport America. We really liked this park. It would be impossible to find nicer, more helpful people anywhere. It really is in the middle of nowhere but, if you call ahead (which we strongly recommend), they will give you excellent directions. The back roads leading to the park are narrow but there is no traffic so it wasn't a problem. Roads and sites are gravel but meticulously maintained. Pull-throughs are narrow but we did have room to get our slides out, even with the neighbor's awning out. They are continuing to make improvements and we wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. - SandyA

Passport America park. You have the option of power only or full-hookup with a little more cost. A relatively new park, it is still being developed. As noted in other posts, you will need call for instructions to reach the park from I-30. It is not difficult other than narrow roads as noted, but we had no problem reaching the park with a 40’ RV and toad. The gate into the property is on a curve with a sign showing Arlan Tree Farm, not as Cherokee Lakes RV Park; not sure why. It is a very nice small park. The sites are tight but this should not be a serious issue for a short stay. Our unit has 4 slides, yet we had the room needed. There are several here on a long term basis but finding a space should not be a problem until others hear about the park. Power was about 112 to 116 volts all the time even in 100-degree heat meaning everyone was running their AC. Early in the mornings the power is 119. Water and its pressure are good. Our Verizon phones and MiFi ran on 4G. There is no cable but satellite reception is good. Close to Little Rock, air signal receives 9 stations. We stayed an extra day because it was so quiet and provided us with the services we needed to be comfortable. Apparently the pipeline workers mentioned in one post have departed, so there is very little traffic in or out. We would stay here again. - Workamper04

All gravel, pull through sites with no cable, no WiFi, no pool. If you have slides on both sides, you'll be within 2 feet of your neighbor on your non utility side. Trust your GPS, which will take you to a locked gate (you have to call for the code) after a tough, twisty, rural ride that has no signs for this park, but plenty of no trespassing signs. You will feel like you're sinking in gravel. The father/son/grandson that run the park are very friendly. The picnic table at your site is one of the best I've ever seen. It is a very quiet park, other than the early morning permanent workers heading to the pipeline. They have done a terrific job with stonework around a water fall and pond, but its tough with all the shortcomings to give this park a very high rating. Rate paid is with Passport America. - simsfmly

This place is a parking lot that sits right on the I-30 Feeder Road.
The spot is not level and the electric box is older. When I plugged in, I got a polarity error on my Surge initially, then it cleared. So far it hasn't come back. Two holes where old sewer connects used to come up.
This is an overpriced field. One of the few choices near Little Rock.
Motel 6 is the same price. Choose it instead. - Author

Our site was a long gravel pull-thru with more than enough room for our 40 ft motor home and towed vehicle. Site was level and there were no trees to block our satellite dish. Good Verizon signal. Although close to the freeway there was little traffic noise. Very good for an overnight stay. A little difficult to get to from I-30 west. Recommend getting off on exit 118, take Congo Road overpass to get to east-bound side frontage road (stay in right lane on overpass). - arpijay

One key thing about this park is that even though it is listed as Benton it really is in Bryant which is significantly closer to Little Rock at exit 121 rather than exit 106 where the Benton parks are. Downtown Little Rock and the Clinton Library are <25 minutes away. We stayed here a bit longer than expected while we waited for some storms to pass by; there's both a Kroger and a Walmart only 5 minutes away. It's not a very attractive park; there is only gravel in the area where most short term people are put, but, as a result, we had no problem getting satellite TV. We were warned that the wifi was slow, but it did work. Mostly we used our Verizon 4G which was >10 Mbps. It's a little pricey for what you get, but the rate cited was a total price. One thing to note, it is in a dry county. The nearest wet county is ~8 miles north towards Little Rock. - docj

It had been a few years since my last visit to this park. I was happy to find that it is still a great place to stay in the Little Rock area. The abundant shade trees are great and really helped since the temperature was between 95 and 100 most afternoons. The streets and parking pads are paved and mostly level. My only complaint during this stay is that the grass was pretty tall when I arrived and no grass cutting was done anywhere in the park during the 5 days I was there. Utilities and dump station worked as expected. - minidilbert

Large COE campground on the Arkansas River close to Little Rock. Level, large sites some right on the river bank. Bathrooms were individual toilet, shower rooms. Good 4 bar AT&T 4G phone service. AT&T hotspot worked well for iPad and laptop. - smitty12

This park is located right outside of Little Rock. Being a COE park you won't get full blown amenities such as wiring or sewer hookups. But all in all its a great place for a weekend camp, right on the Arkansas river. Folks that work there are friendly and helpful. Clean level sites with massive spacing between them (most). Asphalt pads and water and electric. Bath houses are clean but older. Overall a great place to stay. - JackS

Reserved 30 amp pull-through and they said at 28 ft we would have to disconnect. We were told it is better to call them and not use online system. They looked at our rig and sent us to v3 which looked like the permanent area. We did not disconnect. Road noise was loud. Site was not level! - molytung

This is a nicely wooded park and would be very restful except for the road noise. I found it quite annoying when walking around. Otherwise we had a nice level concrete pull thru with plenty of room. Hook ups were convenient and worked fine. The cable was ok, but we found our antenna worked better. The laundry was nearby to our site, so it was very convenient, as well as clean and maintained. Lots of dog walking areas, friendly staff. - Nance70

This park is not the easiest to find and it's a bit confusing to get back onto the interstate from the park. Staff are friendly, Wifi worked well. Pet walk area is terrible. Lots of permanent residents here. It's okay for a one night stay but not a destination park. Over priced for what they offer. - 69636

This park is a fulltimers park, and it had only one vacancy. All others appeared to be living there. At the older restrooms, they had an RV parked at each of those as well. Narrow roads, pot holes, some residents have lots of stuff outside, lots of wood piled up, work materials, etc. - lolasmom

I stayed here 2 months while working in LR. Spacious, shaded sites; friendly, helpful hosts; clean, odor-free restrooms. Burns Park offers trails, geocaching, dog park, and "funland" for kids. There are soccer, golf, baseball, and tennis complexes. There are boat ramps and fishing docks. All this in the middle of the city, but you'd never know it when you are in the park. The price is the most reasonable I have encountered. It is exactly as described. For that, I rate it a 9/10 I wish there was cable, internet, and showers that were NOT on a 20 second push button timer. But over all its a super place to stay! - TravelRNFullTimer

Rare to find a nice quiet wooded and secluded campground this close to a major city. Located in a huge city park with bike trails and hiking trails, and all sorts of activities. Plenty of shade trees on each campsite. New restrooms/bath house. Paved, with paved parking pads. Lots of space between campers. And ONLY $18/night., because it is owned by the city. You can't find a nicer park for this price. Very quiet. Friendly campers and friendly managers. Close to everything in Little Rock. I enjoyed it. - so.cal4me

The only women's bathroom was large but unappealing. Toilet tissue had run out the second time I visited it and the trash can was overflowing.
The small gravel and dirt in the lot were a nuisance being tracked into our motor home.
Despite those facts, I really liked the park. It was great looking out my RV window and seeing the activity on the Arkansas River. It was convenient to many interesting sights in Little Rock. Particularly enjoyed the Saturday morning Farmers' Market and Esse purse museum with it's adjacent bakery featuring delicious pastries. - Pamela R.

We didn't have another unit behind us in the pull-through. Power was good and water pressure good. 50 amp only at our site. If wishing to use Passport America, there are some steep restrictions. Only ONE shower stall for men and one for women. The location is on the river but no swimming. The bridge light show was good. No trees or grass, except for at the river bank. Staff was very helpful. Security was good. Because this CG is owned by the city, it is patrolled by NLRPD. Would return again. - SD75mac

I'm sure a last minute reservation didn't help matters, but it was a holiday weekend, thus the park was rather full. While I have no issue with back-in sites, I wasn't thrilled that I had to get within a foot of the rig behind me to get my 33' trailer out of the road. All of the sites are 50 amp and that's the only plug on the post, so have an adapter if you're not a 50 amp rig. The water pressure was good and for a park smack dab in the middle of town, it was rather quiet, all things considered. The park does sit right on the river across from the Clinton Presidential library. One of my only gripes was there was only two sewer drains between the four rigs where we were parked....even though there was four of everything else; thank goodness we had a tote for the gray water. It's not a bad place, maybe it's a lot better on non-holiday weekends. - zhilton

For $11.00 a night you can't really complain. All hook ups were fine. It was close to Little Rock. Sites 1-16 seem to be in the older area. This is where we were at. The sites were a mess and very old, run down, unoccupied RVs were in spots. No WiFi and no laundry. If you can try to get in sites 17-34, they are very large pull-thrus and seem better maintained. No base maps and the check-in procedure is awful. Find your site first, then go back to main billeting with your site number to check in. - buckingthenorm

The Camp Robinson famcamp has an old and new section. We stayed in the new. We found no shower/rest room, laundry or Wi-Fi in either campground so you MUST be self contained. If traveling with pets bring pick up bags and good luck finding a dumpster in the campground. The new section has 50 Amp FHU sites but as we have a rooftop satellite dish we had a few motorhome adjustments on the too short cement slab to find an opening in the overhead trees to get a signal. We also needed a very long sewer hose. Our GPS using the website coordinates took us directly to the main gate. The billeting office coordinates are 34.82231 and 92.28464. The base itself has a very small BX with a pizza shop. Really nothing more. The campground overlooks a lake from the hill and has no lighting for nighttime dog walking (bring a flashlight). It appears to have homesteaders in many sites. The price to stay is pretty spectacular if you can put up with the above deficiencies. Their 9 hole golf course is a bargain at $8.00. - 5thwheeler

This campground is on Camp Joseph T. Robinson, an Army Post of the Arkansas National Guard. The "old" side is 30 amp, the pads are short because the park was constructed when most folk pulled smaller trailers. The "new" side is full pull throughs, for big 5th wheels and motor coaches. - tony e

Arrival: Fairly good on/off I-30 access. The road to the park itself is a little bit tough. There are more permanent than temporary residents. Once we were in, the camp host did an awesome job getting us to our site.
Roads: It's just off the road and easily accessed... just the 300' between the main road and the park brings on caution.
Sites: Most of the temporary spots are pull-throughs with plenty of space. They are relatively level but unimproved.
Restrooms: Average. You have to walk through the laundry to get there, but they keep the entire area reasonably clean.
Cost: $26 cash for water and electric. No real discounts.
Local Area: Truck stop right across the freeway... and that's it.
Internet: None. Cell reception is good -- right next to the interstate.
Other: Dump station is off-road. Usable and adequate, you just have to look for it. We'll be back if the trip schedule makes it ideal for the overnighter. - JC Penny

If you are wanting a safe, secure and quiet site for an overnight stop after a long day of driving, this is the stop. The place is a trailer park about 1/2 mile off the interstate. The owner is super friendly and helpful. RV sites are close to his house up front of the long term people. If you are looking for a super duper 1st class campground then move on down the road cause this ain't it. It's perfect for a great night of peaceful sleep while traveling. - Juedoo

DUMP!! Keep driving--Truck Stops and Walmarts are cleaner!! I parked my RV and took a look around: beer cans, trash, buildings in need of repair. RV's looked as if they had not moved in "months"! Clerk was friendly and could not understand why I was leaving. I told her that I did not feel safe and left. - Mcpowder

We stayed here 2 nights. The people were friendly and it was close to sightseeing in Little Rock. There was a buzz fest (BBQ) and campsites in town were being used for the event. Nothing here for kids but fine for an overnight stay, - dd2some

I wish we wouldn't have come to this park as when I tried to make the reservation over the phone, the lady was very rude and hung up on me. I tried to call back to finish my reservation and she said she couldn't be bothered with me. When we got here, there was no one in the office it was about 1:00 pm when we arrived. There was no note on the door as to when they would be back. There was a man's phone number on the board to call, so we called and he helped us. We got to our site and it was full of water, there is no drainage at this park even though there are rock sites and grass inbetween, but had to walk ankle deep in mud. The restrooms are in need of remodeling, not very clean and the laundry room has 3 washers and 3 dryers, but good luck on getting your clothes dry. I had one lady who approached me selling drugs. Needless to say, we left the same day. I don't recommend this park, I would advise on going to the KOA or the Riverfront RV park. This isn't a kid friendly park, there is no place to play and the blonde lady (owner) was just rude. All she wanted was our money. She wouldn't answer our questions and acted like we were an annoyance. - Mrs. Bailey

This 'park' is one of those 'Mobile Home Parks' which also happens to allow RV owners to stay right alongside the permanent trailers. The manager worked very hard maintaining the grounds, and provided a very friendly, professional experience during check-in and throughout our stay. A quiet, clean place during the week, the park turns into an episode of COPS on the weekend. Located within a mile of HWY 67, the close proximity to major travel arteries makes it ideal for those wishing to spend an extended amount of time in the area. Unfortunately, the same easy access for RV owners provides a 'shortcut' for criminals attempting to flee the local police.
Also, be prepared to 'mow your own lawn' as is expected in mobile home parks. We paid a local guy $15.00 to tend to the grass once during the month. The longtime residents were friendly and helpful - each offering advice on food choices, grocery stores and entertainment in the area.
While few choices exist for 'standard' campgrounds in the immediate area, for those looking for short term or overnight stays, we recommend looking elsewhere. However, for those requiring longer term or monthly time frames, the combination of central location and low price might just fit your needs. After all, the increased police presence certainly ensures all your belongings will be there upon your return. - Todd and Heather
