12 Parks near Arkadelphia, Arkansas
Sep 2016 - $40.00
Have stayed in this park several times on a trip to Branson.
As others have said the owner was a grouch and seemed disinterested in customers.
It is under new management by a young couple. The campground is clean and we were assigned the same spot we usually stayed in. The owner assisted us in parking and showed us the hookups. I used a 2 x 10 to level one side and had to unhook because I could not level front to back although if I worked at it, I may have been level enough to remained hooked. Sites were all hard packed gravel with little to no grass.
Cable was good as was water pressure and electrical. Many full time residents but their sites was neat and tidy. There is a larger area at a lower level that had many more full time residents.
There is a grill at the sight for cooking outdoor and trash is left at the campsite and picked up by the owners.
We did not use any of the facilities. Rates were $40.00 per night with an additional 10% or so added for tax. The rate of $40 is not a good value for an overnight stay. We stayed here in a 36' fifth wheel and will stay here again when traveling north. - Tigggerdad

Under new management for 3 weeks so it is hard to evaluate what the new owners will do in the future, but very nice accommodating management folks. Did not even look at baths, showers, etc. Very rustic gravel site and road park. This park offers a stop over with easy access off I-30 south, turning onto highway 7 to Frost Road. Sites very, very close together, strong wifi, good cable, 50 amps and we got DirectTV reception with our satellite. Probably one of the better sites, level, in park for a big rig. We did not use sewer or water, as for just one night stay and did not unhook the tow car. Cash only and they charge tax. Pool drained for repairs. - Oooooooo

Easy off and on from I40. Cash only. They are under new ownership and are trying. Helped us to our site, which was a long pull through. Gravel site with small charcoal grill. No patio or table. Some road noise, but not much in our RV. We visit our kids in Memphis, and we will stay here again for overnight. - User2475

This is a nice campground if you get the right site. The reason this campground got a 6 is that many sites are unlevel and some are crowded. There are also no water hookups but water is available in each loop. The last two loops are very nice. Degray lake is a beautiful lake. This is a remote quiet campground. Very shaded so getting a satellite signal can be difficult. Also Electric golf carts are considered ATV and cannot be used in campground. We stayed in sites 48 and 71. We would camp here again. - TEXASBOY

The website said the sites had water and electricity, but the water sources were scattered throughout the campground, not at each site. The faucet required constant twisting to keep the water flowing. Kind of a pain when trying to fill up the water tank. - ETX

The park itself is beautiful, heavily treed along a pretty lake. It's quiet and scenic. There is no water at the sites, but there's a dump and water station near the entrance. There are serious issues with the individual sites. They are all highly unlevel, many of them are very short, and some of them will cause issues with slide-outs because the tress are so close in. Some of the concrete pads only go back for half of the site, so you could be trying to level with half your rig on concrete and half in soft dirt. I was able to find a workable site with a great view of the lake only because the park was empty when I arrived. If you are off season and not arriving on a weekend, you may have no trouble, but otherwise, siting could be a real problem. That was the main reason I rated this park down. Also, customer service was friendly, but hopelessly inept. There is no phone in the office (the phone number listed gets you only to the Arkadelphia COE main office), and it is a mile from the campground, over some fairly steep hills. I only mention that because if you want to view the sites before you check in or pick a site, it is very inconvenient. Verizon signal a little weak. - KAP99

The campground is very nice with spacious sites. Couple of drawbacks are: the distance off the highway and only 30 amp electric service.
We picked our site from the online map and thought we had a lake view. The lake could be seen through a tiny hole in the trees. We will survey the sites and pick our favorites for any future visit. - hoganc

Just a great park to enjoy yourself. Nice drive into the park past the golf course and a nice marina handy as well as the Resort. We try to get spot 80 on our trips to De Gray as it handles the satellite very well. Again can't ask for a more convenient park to many places.
There is some shade and the sites are asphalt with good space between. - George M

We have camped here before and have always enjoyed our stay. Some sites have little parking due to the park being older. On a busy weekend there is alot of congestion because of the parked vehicles along the sites. Water and electric were good. Most sites have their own patio and are water front. - TexasRVer

Beautiful park overlooking DeGray Lake. It is very quiet, except for the occasional noise from the water treatment plant. There is a building with toilets and showers for men and women that are clean and have cold and hot water. There is no water hookup at the sites, but good water is available in the campground. - MkvCjv

Make sure you notice there are no water hook ups in this park. Lake was pretty. Sites are not level. Bath houses are old, but clean. - dogsandus

We stayed there for 4 days. It was a very nice experience. My only complaint is that the tent pads were very hard to drive stakes into, but other than that it was great. It is quiet, well maintained and well patrolled. The showers are old but clean. We have and access pass so the usual $14 rate was only $7 for us, but even at $14 it is worth it. - rgtx

What a cute little park. Lots of attention to detail here. Great wifi. Not a lot of cable channels to choose from, but we have satellite, so no big deal. - TXTread

Park is close to town, it's pretty much no frills , lime stone drive and pads, not much grass and what there is has many many stickers. WiFi works well , cable is good enough , there were enough channels to watch.
Not much to do other than sit outside your camper etc.
Dog park is adequate but small, didn't use the facilities but assume they are ok. We paid 30$ per night which may be a little too high for this park in my opinion. Full hookups, overall a decent park quiet but sort of small. - Usaerrb19

Cleanest restrooms anywhere. Easy to find and easy to park in very nice, back in sites. Well defined and nice grassy area between sites. The wifi preforms well. Nice park. - Bruce and Janette

Paved park with large paved sites. Wide roads, nice utilities and good wifi. Didn't like the unthreaded sewer connection-not air tight. Nice pool and office. We'd return. - The Hilts

The park is beautiful. I rode my mountain bike in the park and on some trails they had around the park. Great places to walk my dog. Very nice park, I would stay there again!!! - TJ traveling

First this was the most expensive place we have stayed at. That being said it is a beautiful Very clean park. Nice wide asphalt roads, concrete pads. Ours was not quite level, sloped down to the river but not bad. Ours was a "water front" site, so more money. But we had some shade, the pull throughs in the middle of the park have zero shade. Lots of elbow room between sites. Our truck was angled up to the road when the trailer was where I wanted it. We were 50 amp and it worked fine. Water was good. Cable tv, mmm , not great , snowy, but it was there. I believe they use satellite. Wifi is slow but was very reliable. At&T cell service is one bar, maybe 2 if you act like a scare crow... The employees were nice. The fellow campers were the best we have ever experienced ! Very friendly and nice, but not overly so. I think everybody we met walking the dogs said hello with a smile. Talked to our neighbors from TX and AL alot. This I would say is a 'higher' end rv park, but by no means snooty... They have boat rentals, zip lines, hiking trails, but we didn't use them. Maybe next time. Overall we really liked it. Lots of grass to walk the dogs, (on leash of course) and a "ok" fenced dog park. The web site says its on Lake Catherine, but its actually a decent size river. Several places on the bank to fish if so inclined. Unless you like hilly winding roads with very narrow bridges, stay off Hwy 7 coming from the north. You Do Not want to meet a log truck on those bridges... - DaneDad76

Park is away from the highway and located right along a lake. Sites have full hookups and are large and well paved with grass in between. Excellent facilities all clean and sparkling. A great place to stay to visit Bath House Row in the National Park. - pklhead2

Loved our first stay at Lake Catherine. We were on the upper loop (Area A) and had no tv reception. Phone signal was strong so used 4G LTE for internet connection. Our site #11 was last in loop, so we had mountainside woods view out of windows and doors above picnic area for our spot. Really nice! (But note, #11 is slightly steep backup from road...but we parked into the level camper spot easily with 4WD reverse.)
We loved the lake, great fishing lake and kayaking...but highlight of the trip was our HIKE...up Horseshoe Mtn Trail, Creek Falls Trail, and another 4.5 mile hike up the other mountain. Great. Good geocaches also in park. We have reserved next year for 2 weeks, this time at a lakeside spot. Can't wait. - Damon-Becky
