Easy access to and in the park with our 40'+ RV but our back-in site (B3) was at a 90 degree angle from the road; not an overly hard site to back in but a little angle would have been nice. "B" section sites are wooded with 50 amp electric and most (but not all) sites have water. "A" section has wider paved sites with less overhead cover along the water but only 30 amp electric and most (but not all) sites have water. Very helpful and friendly woman at the front access gate / booth. Quiet at night. Only a few minutes away from Fort Smith proper. We would stay again. We camped at Springhill COE in a Fifth Wheel.

We always enjoy COE campgrounds. We stayed in the "B" loop, which had 50 amp water and electric. The site was grass and stone/sand......not a problem until it rained, and it got a little mucky. The water and electric worked as it should, and we had to use our portable satellite dome as we had heavier tree cover (great for shade!). The "A" loop is mostly 30amp electric service/water, but the sites are concrete, and there is a better view of the water. We would try to stay in that section next time we are in the area. Highly recommend! We camped at Springhill COE in a Motorhome.

Stayed on the "A" site (near the lock & dam). Since it's a Corp of Engineers park none of the sites have sewer, but all in the "A" sites have both 30 & 50 amp as well as water. The dump station is near the front gate and fairly easy to get a long 5th wheel into. Very peaceful with a backwater bay behind the sites. About a five minute walk to the playground and pavilion/open grassy field. While the lock is active with a highway over the top of the dam the noise wasn't noticeable at night. The "B" side the sites are among the trees; while beautiful some are a little challenging for the longer trucks & trailers to back into. I would recommend if your in the area. We camped at Springhill COE in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed 2 nights in a 5th wheel. We have stayed here 3 times and love it. We stayed in section A which is on a feeder to the Arkansas River. At $9/nite with a Senior Pass, it was a great deal with electric & water only. It is a few miles south of I-40 and east of I-46. Sites and roads are paved and in very good condition. Nestled in the woods with a lot of room, it was very serene. The sites are back-in with picnic tables and a fire pit. We camped at Springhill COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Springhill COE has two camping areas, A and B. We spent 7 nights in site B2 ($20/night), which like many sites is quite large. 'B' side is more wooded. B16 and B18 had small shelters over their picnic tables. 'A' side has a different feel, being situated along a wide, quiet river with fewer trees and closer sites. All the A sites appeared to have double wide paved areas. Bring your mountain bike as the 10 mile mountain bike trail is a lot of fun. My kids (7&9) and I biked it in 2-3 mile segments over a few days. We camped at Springhill COE in a Travel Trailer.

This COE Park was a find! At $9/nite with a Senior Parks Pass, it was a great deal with electric & water only. It is a ways off of I-40 (about 15-20 miles to the south) but the setting can't be beat. You are located on a offshoot of the Arkansas River in the woods with a lot of room. The sites are back-in with picnic tables and a fire pit. We camped at Springhill COE in a Motorhome.

Very nice COE park. Lots of space between most sites. A few sites had dried mud on them from recent rains, but overall a good campground from which to visit the Fort Smith area. We camped at Springhill COE in a Travel Trailer.

Overall a very nice place to stay for a night or longer. I paid $10.00 per night for one of a few full-hookups spaces using a senior all America pass. Plenty of room between well shaded sites. Quiet, peaceful place but plenty of things to do for kids. We camped at Springhill COE in a Motorhome.

Shore services good. Many 30 amp only sites but there are some 50 amp. Good water pressure. We stayed in area A which is along the river bank. Sites are asphalt and easy to level. There are no planes, trains or highways near by so it is nice and quiet. Each area is a long drive from the main gate, roads are good. Satellite might be difficult at some sites. We had to put our dish almost in the neighbor's site to get reception. There is a lot of room between sites. Putting out an awning would be no problem. Showers are a pretty long way, but they are very nice. They have the toilet, sink ,and shower in each room. It is much more private. Dumpsters are in a inconvenient area. You can't drive by when leaving and deposit trash. My Sprint air card worked very well. You can use a credit card if the volunteer hosts are not there. The volunteer's can not use the computer or credit card system. The dump station is in a strange location. You have to drive off the road to leave the park and make a tight left hand turn to get into the dump area. They allow you to dump gray water with a hose at the camp sites, so we didn't use the Waste dump. Many of the camp sites have only electric, but no water. We would stay here again. Our rate reflects using the Golden Age Pass. We camped at Springhill COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Friendly and helpful staff. Huge mature trees, so lots of shade after mid-March. Side A is more manicured with sites closer together, fewer trees, but close to the water. Side B is more hilly, with many trees and sites farther apart. All sites are back-in and some 90 degrees to the road, so they are more difficult to get into if you're not a skilled backer-upper. Restrooms have a push-button water supply with no control over the temp, but are reasonable, and showers are individual rooms with locks. Limited to 2 weeks per site, but extensions are possible. Very close to lots of shopping and restaurants in Fort Smith, but far enough out of town to avoid most of the noise. Military aircraft do fly over frequently, though. Mama's Cafe in nearby Barling is a must - meatloaf or chicken & dumpling specials are YUM. We camped at Springhill COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice COE campground. Lots of room sites are long not all are real level. Lot of area for kids. They have water and electric but no sewer but has a dump station. Only reason I didn't give it a 10 is that it doesn't have sewer hook-ups. We camped at Springhill COE in a Fifth Wheel.

A nice local park with some great campsites for all types of RVs or tents. Very shaded. One loop is right on the river and the other is on a hill in the trees, some with river view. The ones in the loop are bigger campsites, but if you are bringing your boat, you might want to stay in the river loop. There are 2 wonderful campgrounds for the kids to play on and lots of places for them to ride bikes or go on walks. It is very dog friendly too which is important to us. They also have great trails for bikes. Our only dislike is that they don't have sewer hookups and about 1/2 of the campsites have no water hookups, but overall it's a great park.

Price reflects Interagency Senior Pass. Sites are nice, all back-in, but plenty long. We parked in Loop "B" and the sites were far from each other. Some sites had water, others did not. Showers clean with plenty of hot water. We camped at Springhill COE in a Travel Trailer.

We have the "geezer" pass which got us our camping for half price. We have camped in the A Loop which has only 30 AMP service and water for the past three years. Our preference is to camp in the A Loop. The pads are asphalt paved with a paved area for your towed auto or truck. Beautiful park close to the lock and dam on the Arkansas. Real close to Ft. Smith with great shopping. We love to geocache at the old Ft. Chaffee. We will definitely come here again. We camped at Springhill COE in a Motorhome.

Good signage from SR59. Signage within the campground could be improved. No office operational when visited, but honesty box for camping fee payment. Good access roads within campground. Campground A had water frontage and 30amp electricity and water. Campground B was heavily wooded and had a mixture of electricity(50 amp) and water sites and electricity (50amp) only sites. Not all sites were level but all large. Good quiet location for visiting Van Buren/Fort Smith. Not quite up to usual standard of COE sites experienced elsewhere. We camped at Springhill COE in a Motorhome.
