7 RV Parks near Barling, Arkansas
Apr 2017 - $18.00
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

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

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

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

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

Lots of trees which are nice but no satellite tv. Their cable tv requires a box be installed near your tv. About half the channels do not come in. Right on rivers edge for a beautiful setting. Peaceful and quiet. Wifi works well. Good Verizon coverage. - Windshift

Easy on and off of I-40. The owner is very nice. I would say this park is a work in progress. Lots of long term campers. It was easy to get in and out of our site. The site was level and all the utilities worked well. We were on a 50 AMP pull through site. It's okay for a shot term stay. - Gary T

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

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

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

Well, this ex KOA still has KOA prices. The roads are a bit tight, but navigable. The cable is not provided for overnighters as it is too much trouble to set up a comcast box for each rig. (really?) Over the air is spotty, but we didn't need it. Owner tries to be friendly.... problem was he charged me $35 for a non sewer spot - then put me in a sewer spot - then came knocking on the door when he realized his mistake and wanted his extra $10 or to help us move to the site he intended. I paid the 10 as I was all set up after a long day driving. He should not have even asked. We won't be back. - Tiny Beast
