12 RV Parks near Alma, Arkansas
Jun 2015 - $27.00
This park is a gravel parking lot with very tight spots. The basic rate is $25 but for 50 Amps, the rate is $27. The 50 amp breaker continually tripped in site 30. Management knew it but would not fix it. I was stuck here for four days while the temperature climbed to nearly 100 degrees in my RV. Do not rely on the attached RV dealership. They did repairs on my 5th wheel hitch and the new parts fell out while I was driving to get fuel. I got back to the park and could not hook up to the 5th wheel pin. I won't be back. - KD7UCH

This is a fairly clean park with continuous distant traffic noise and some train noise.
Sites are dirt and gravel, narrow, mostly not level, in various lengths, without shade. Not all sites have sewer connections, 50 amps, or cable. Voltage is good.
Roads are dirt and gravel, in good condition.
Staff and hosts are friendly and helpful, but can be hard to find.
WiFi is strong. One afternoon I measured 653.6 kB/s down; by evening it was very slow.
Verizon LTE works well.
Showers are clean but lack privacy.
Laundry: 2 top-loaders ($1.25), 2 dryers ($1 for 46 min).
Rate is total with Good Sam. - wjzcbn

As stated by others, this is really a parking lot for the RV servicing & sales company. It is okay for an over night stay. Others have stated their site was level. Number 25 was not. Big rigs beware. I witnessed a rather large fifth wheel nearly slip into the creek that runs threw the camp grounds. The wheels dipped into a wash that had cut into the gravel roadway. Our entrance door was just 5 feet from our neighbor's full hook up drop. We were 7 feet from his unit. Staff personnel were nice and helpful. The park is pet friendly. Many "sites" appeared to be homesteading or had just dropped as a storage place. Value wise, at $25, was acceptable for clean bathroom and showers. - Laptop Willie

This is a very quiet park behind the golf course that is not easy to find. We were visiting family that live on the golf course so it was very convenient. Water pressure is good, 50 amp hook-up works fine and the grounds are well kept as you might expect at a golf course. I don't think that this park gets much use and we were the only RV there. It is mainly for golfers but they seemed happy to have us. We will certainly be back when we are in the area. We have a 40 foot 5th wheel. - KD7UCH

Eagle Crest RV campground and golf course was most unusual . You find the RV park by driving through a residential area and into the golf course parking lot. The RV ( 18 ) sites are down the hill and past/behind the gold cart storage building. The park is a tall grass field with some small patios and offers FHU. It was basically deserted ( one other coach ) when we arrived. There are no trees for shade, no tables, no wi-fi, no fire pits and no showers so you better be self contained. It offers highway noise throughout the night. They say they have a host, but he lives on the golf course – not at the campground. He was good to come down and introduce himself and offer assistance. We came here to take advantage of the golf special, but upon arriving, we learned of a tournament, and our promised two rounds of golf might not be possible. I think that the golf professional knew that when he took our call, but he still said come on to the campground. The course wanders through a residential neighborhood and looks fine. I didn’t get to play it because of the tournament. Our below rating covers only the campground. The overall rating might have been higher if I could have gotten on the course. We’re pretty sure we would not consider this facility for a future stop. - 5thwheeler

The campground was not terrible if it was operated better. The bathrooms were updated and clean. The pool was not so much. It was swim-able but with bugs in it. The older man who checked us in was, in a word, crotchety. I asked what time the pool closed and he said "you can do what you want, you can drown, you can catch a cold, I don't care. I am leaving." I had no response. If pressed I would stay here again for a short amount of time but hope I am not pressed. - MandM12550

Good Place to over nite or spend a few days in the area. 3 miles off of I-40 easy access. It is an old KOA but is in excellent condition with paved roads and gravel pads that are mostly level. - Danny285
Apr 2017 - $35.00
My take: A former KOA. Quaint. Secluded. Safety: no concerns - peaceful. Access: Off I-40 exit 13 go north about 3 miles. Good signage on left. Municipal road needs resurfacing. GPS took us directly to the CG. Office: Token store with food items and snacks, a few RV equipment items; closes at 6 PM. Facilities: Sites are a mix of back-in and pull-through; tent area and cabins. Pool, no spa or fitness room. Laundry room not inspected. Restrooms/showers look very new, clean, modern (score "A"). Nice playground. Tons of open space for your dog to run. Lake with pedal-boats to rent. Campground: Roads are narrow, new asphalt with tight turns. Watch for hanging tree branches. Electrical pedestals with FHU-20/30/50; no meters. Sites are dirt and grass with a sprinkling of gravel and very close together, grass landscaping, level with pedestal at mid-rig. Some sites have sewer; others use dump station near office but the (aging) sewer is on the wrong side of the road so go "in" the "out". Some sites have concrete patios; not all sites have picnic tables. Good satellite views. Ground fires not permitted. Adequate water pressure and taste. Propane sales on site. Free cable TV. OTA TV found 18 channels. Free Wi-Fi but with sporadic coverage and weak bandwidth. Verizon phone at 4-bars; 4G at 4-bars. No railroad, traffic, or aircraft noise. No recycle bins. Bug Report: Ant mounds but no activity noted. Runners: CG roads good for running, no fitness room so no treadmills. Yoga: lawns were well mowed; place mats anywhere; watch for ants. Conclusion: Overpriced for minimal amenities. We only stayed 1 night per our travel plan. - StephenK

Sites are gravel (very little in some sites) and are not level. Hookups are at back of site so we were unable to leave our tow vehicle hooked up. CG is very close to I-40 and there is a lot of noise. This CG is convenient for a 1 night stay but I would not like to be here for more than overnight. Tow vehicle had to be parked in front of our motor home. - Grammy8

We stayed here on our way home. The lots are angled, making it easy for us to get into. There was quite a bit of highway noise. The lots are long and they have Wi-Fi, but it was spotty. The bathrooms were tidy, and we had phone service. We enjoyed our stay, but we will probably find one a little further from the highway to avoid the noise next time. - lougreene67

This is a nice campground. They have some nice long pull thru sites that allow big rigs to stay hooked up. They have 50 Amp FHU available. The park is older but clean and tidy. Roads and pads are gravel with grass but very narrow spaces. ATT & Verizon work well. Plenty of clear sky for satellite set up. Restrooms are three unisex cubicle and are clean. No train but some Hwy noise. Free WiFi works well. Park was full as only two sites available when we arrived at 1PM and some later arrivals were turned away. Many extended stay which looked like local workers. The park was tidy and quiet. Fast foods, restaurants and Walmart nearby.
Will stay again. - TedandJan

Good place for stop-over stay. Easy in & out. Large pull-through. Level gravel sites. Full hookups, 50 amp. Lots of trees, trimmed well above rigs. Near river but not a part of river you'd want to swim in! Cable. Probably would be quiet it it wasn't cicada season. Staff (owner?) very friendly and helpful. Some long-term residents. Would stay here again. - DrM Traveler

Easy off and on from I-40. Easy in and out of park. Quiet and shaded sites...level gravel with some grass. FHU, GS discount ($35 with disc), no cable but good wifi. Plenty of dog walking space. Did not use bathhouse..but it is new. Cute gift shop in office. We camped one night in fifth wheel and sites are long enough so that we did not need to unhook. All in all..shaded, safe, rural and cute...we would stay again. - Kade435

Nice quiet park. Office staff was very nice. Wifi was pretty useless at our site. I could get connected but it would take forever to just check emails. I would stay here again. - RayN

Springhill is another well designed COE park. Campground roads were worn, but in good repair. Interior roads were easy to navigate. Sites were not all level, but we were able to level easily. Many sites were directly along a creek which feeds into the Arkansas River with great views. Some things showed wear, including the picnic table on our site. Fishing and mountain biking are popular in this park. - NJTroy

What a little gem of a place. Am afraid to write a good review because that will send folks here. Loop A has nice river views and quiet. Only 30 amps on this loop. Loop B is nice but the spaces look very uneven and some looked unusable. When making reservations be sure to check that the site has water some do not. Close to Ft Smith. - Sharpe7tex

When booking this site I was mainly looking for value and didn't expect much for just $9.00 but were we ever surprised! I had chosen a spot that backed up to the water and the site and park are beautiful! Couldn't have asked for more. Even if we had to pay the full rate of $18.00 it would have been a good value. I just wish I could have given the park a 10 rating but it does not have sewer.
Also the park is close to Ft. Smith to go into town to tour the old fort. Very interesting and worth the time. - Rick & Karen

What a gem! There's not many things to see in the area but this is that get-away-from-it-all kind of place. If you want a campground that feels like it's out in the wilds, stay here. The campsites were fairly level even though they were spread out on a hill overlooking a small pond and the post. They were spacious with lots of grass and trees. The hookups included 50 & 30 amp, water, and sewer and worked perfectly. There were laundry machines available at no cost. Soldiers were fishing in the pond. The only downside to this place was NO wifi. This is the only military installation I have ever stayed at that did not play the National Anthem in its daily ensemble of songs piped over the speaker system at 0600, 1700, and 2200 hours. - Melodycthomas

Quite, safe, hassle free. This is a nice but no frills RV park. Lots of space with trees in many spots. Fishing pond nearby. Some sites are 20/30 amp, the remaining sites are 20/50 amp. No laundry, but Laundromat available just off base in the city of Barling. Small PX, gym and weight room on base. Staff very helpful. Deer hunting is popular on the base in fall and early spring. Base has thousands of wooded acres. - Gadzilla

Truck problems forced us to visit this RV Park. It is located in a portion of Fort Chaffee military base that was sold/gifted to the city of Fort Smith. The town is a ghost town except for a few workers here or there. The park has lots of very nice RVs; figure most are long term visitors working in the area. Only two spots were available. Price is reflects 50amp FHU, cable (only worked one of two days) and internet. Spacing was acceptable. Spot was the most unlevel spot we've encountered in 2 yrs of traveling full time and was used as someone's ash tray. Connections are at the back of the spot. - MichelleKry

The scenery is stunning and the park is very clean. The spaces on one loop are very close together and afford very little privacy. Some of the facilities were unavailable to campers, but their use was allowed for "private guests" by the Park Ranger.
The sites with 50 amps are lovely- lush and private, nestled in the trees. The 30 amp ones are like a cross between a Wal-Mart parking lot and an apartment complex where you bring your own home. - SouthernBubbe

This campground holds to the expectations of a State Park. Plenty of room to maneuver and park at sites. A camping atmosphere in the woods and wildlife is plentiful. The roads and sites are asphalt and concrete. Grills, fire rings and utilities except for water pressure is up to spec and conveniently located to the site. Most sites have tent pads and ample room for the other camping necessities. The park is well maintained and has amenities for all campers. It is on our return list. - duster340

Very nice, quiet State Park. Verizon cell service did not work, but friends AT&T worked fine. Good spacing between sites. I would suggest you bring what you need as the nearest grocery store is about a 30 minute drive. We stayed 4 nights with a RV club and will be returning. - Keith52
Sep 2017 - $35.00
The facility was very clean and very ample for the vehicle and tow vehicle. There was a large concrete pad, water, sewer, and electric. The park however was in a black hole and about 15 miles from the interstate on a double lane road that was quite tight. No wifi and cell provided for some issues but the stay was cozy. - Sean_Michelle

We stayed 3 nights and I was looking forward to Devil's Den based on a neighbor's previous stay. The visitors center parking lot is small so I would suggest dropping off a large camper before checking in. When we arrived at our site, it was fairly short and I could not park my truck with the camper. We enjoyed and hiked on a few of the trails but I was a bit set back by some general lack of up keep of the place. The laundry room A/C was broken, no sidewalk at the entire complex looked like it had ever been cleaned, screws were sticking up on walking bridges, the water upstream of the dam was shallow and stagnant, siding was rotting off some of the buildings, etc... The state is adding some new cabins and remodeling the store/cafe (closed since a 2015 fire) but the rest of the facility could really use some attention to make this a place I would visit again. - Iraqvet05

The site was level side to side. It was a bit tight backing in with a tree on one side and the identification post on the other. If you go here, contact them ahead of time and park first if possible. The area around the visitors center is extremely tight. I could not have gotten my truck and trailer in and out of the parking lot. - BaldGuy
