14 Parks near Benton, Arkansas
Nov 2015 - $32.00
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

If you need a quick place to spend a night or closer access to Little Rock, one would manage fine here. We stayed one night but had a large mainly level, gravel pad. We chose not to have sewer connection but they were available. Quiet wooded location with many permanent, non-intrusive residents. Management was kind and checked on us after finding location to see if our needs were met. No amenities except laundry which looked clean and presentable. Did not use restrooms. It had rained and continued to do so during our stay but we were safe and were able to maneuver the grounds easily. Used antennae for tv and had good reception. Do not know if wifi was available. - Lone Star Traveler

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

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 park has great views . Drive is steep but manageable. Restrooms extremely clean. Park shows lots of hard work my owners. Game room has large TV with lounge chairs, pool table and an outside large deck with rockers to enjoy the view. Sites are gravel and very level. Great campground just 13 miles off I-30 and 10 minutes to Hot Springs. Definitely would stay here again. - Happy Retirees

It is a steep road but doable. The park is roomy and clean. Nothing to do at park but not far from hot springs. People were very friendly and helpful. I would stay here again if in the area. Very safe feeling. Go slow up the road in case somebody coming down and you will be fine. - Pam_Ricky

This is just an excellent park. Short but steep asphalt road up from the highway with a couple tight turns. No big deal. Asphalt interior roads with gravel sites. Pull throughs are nice and long with very good spacing between sites. The back-ins are mostly double wide so you can park your truck next to your camper. Lots of trees surrounded by forest. Very nice and helpful management. A short drive to downtown or several close state parks. I will always stop here when in the area. Rate is based on weekly rate. Note that not all sites are 50 amp. - GoPackGo

One of our favorite places to stay on our way cross country. It is a few miles off the North loop around Little Rock but usually quiet. Located right on the Arkansas River. Some sites back right up to the river on loop B. Most sites on Loop B are shade or partial shade except for sites on far end. - 1texan

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

We found this campground more than adequate for our stay; where we did some sightseeing and visited friends. Neighboring lots are nearby. Sites are gravel and mostly shady. Features a picnic table.
While a few miles out, it is a quick trip into Little Rock and quite quiet despite being in close proximity to I-40. The owners are great. Our site could have been a bit more level. - dandd

Not very appealing!!!
Does not stand up to the KOA standards! Will never stay here again!
Lot was asphalt with some shade, and featured a picnic table. The interior roads were easy to navigate in our coach. Our pull through site was just long enough that we did not have to disconnect our tow car. - Gene and Pat 1

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

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
May 2016 - $32.00
We just finished a week-long stay. Our site was on the water. Everything worked perfect. Water, sewer, and good reception from our Tailgater satellite antenna. During the summer months, sites not lakeside may have trouble with satellite due to trees. - reuben james

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

I enjoyed this park, however some of the tenants within this park looked too permanent. They had belongings all around their RV. If I had to stay here again, I would go back. I would just like to be placed farther away from these sites. - AJ's

Well marked, easy access from I30 Westbound from Little Rock. Paved interior roads, gravel sites, terrific views! Very nice clubhouse, with home baked treats. Very friendly and helpful staff. Designed and built to be "big rig friendly", even back-in sites are easy to access. You can always tell a campground, designed and built by campers. This is on our A list. Rig is 32'. - Dale-from-NC

A small campground area in a wooded area. A small unisex bathroom and shower on-site. The sites are not level and required about a 12 inch rise on the front wheels of our 30ft Motorhome. Access to the sites to backup a motorhome is tight. Although the campground is just off the highway it was remarkably quite. We were the only unit at the park when we visited in March. Overall a very nice RV area if you like a quite secluded wooded area. - Harold_J

Immaculate grounds, accommodating and service oriented managers. Pay for 6 nights, get 7th free. No wi-fi or cable, but satellite friendly. No tent camping sites. Under expansion with 6 large shaded sites and 6 pull thrus, all FHUs to come. Reservations are advisable. - Too Tide
May 2012 - $18.00
Wonderfully friendly. LARGE sites, lots of shade. Close to WalMart (It's behind WalMart) Daily/Weekly/Monthly rates. Paved: $20 day/100 weekly/400 monthly , Gravel: $18/90 weekly/ 360 monthly. (Electric included). The Google info takes you to the wrong address. Look for WalMart and you can't miss it. - louiskathy
