The city took the police department parking lot and added electricity, water, swear & cable to back of each parking space and called it a RV Campground. Sites very close together: open awnings and touch neighbor. Utilities at back of site so need long hoses, especially sewer. Price is right, you are well protected at police department. Great cable service. No reservations and fills up at hunting season. No other advisable campground in area. We stay here visiting family every year. Caution: Big Tree in middle of lots and small posts in front across narrow street...we crushed our motor home bumper backing in trying to skirt tree in back and not seeing post in front which was below eyesight of driver. - Too Tide

Seven small back in spaces that can handle up to a 40 ft. camper. Sites are fairly level and are concrete but close together. Quiet and secure. Located next to city park and police station. Walking trail, fishing, and picnic area in park. Pet friendly. To secure a site, contact the police dispatcher. They are polite and friendly. This is a dry county, so all alcohol will have to be consumed inside your camper. Magazine Mountain State Park is nearby. Great fishing and hunting. Will definitely stay again! Walmart just a few blocks away. Crosby's automotive located a few miles East of downtown can repair or maintain most motorhomes and trailers. - Gadzilla

Midpoint stop for the night. Reserved site was marked. Spacious sites with a small pond down the hill. We pulled in late and left early. The campground entrance is not clearly marked at night. - Rivercityjeff

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

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

We were looking for someplace we haven't been before within just a few hours of home, for a quick, short fall break trip. This place hit all the marks. Located just a few miles off of I 40, it's easy and convenient to get to and from. Beautiful trees and located right on the Arkansas River. The kids had a blast and mom and dad got some much-needed downtime. We were in loop B, backed up to the river, with a playground only a few sites over. The train on the other side of the river can be annoying, especially if you weren't expecting that, but it's really not as bad as some people make it out to be. The kids enjoyed the river, fishing and watching the barges go by. The weather was beautiful, and the huge old trees provided great shade. Definitely a place will be back to. - rHuke

Backed up to river, nice park. Typical back in sites in loop "F" and side of road away from river. On river side a bit different. A single drive way accommodates 2 sites in a Y configuration. OK, but coming in and looking for site many available sites were blocked by vehicle or objects from the occupied side of the Y. - abqnm

I love this place. Spent 4 days here in July. Very quiet and peaceful. Used as a stopping point between Memphis and Branson and it turned out to be a nice surprise. Sites are large with plenty of room between them. Very easy to get to from 40. Road through campground is wide and it was very easy to back into my site. Nice location right on the water. I had electrical problems with the pedestal but 30 mins after I told them at the office someone was there to fix it. They replace the breaker, 30 amp plug and some wiring. Everything worked great after that. Bathrooms and showers are nice but they are a hot box in the summer. No ventilation. Gave it a 9 only because there are no sewer hookups at the sites. But they do have 2 dump stations. There's a boat ramp near the back of the campground so there is some traffic from local fishermen. - Wills on Wheels

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 campground is easy to find, just follow the Garmin. Check-in was quick and easy. Staff was friendly and helpful. Interior roads are paved, but narrow. Our site was long, but narrow and not very level. Sites are also kind of close. Full hookups worked as expected. WIFI worked well. Verison had four bars. OTA TV worked great. This is a great place for pets, lots of dog walking room. This is an older campground with a few extended stay guests at the upper end. It's also a really pretty park with lots of grass and mature trees. This is a decent place to camp, but we probably wouldn't stay here again. - Hurqleez

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

This park is now closed. Do not be misled by the web site that is still up or the phone number that is still working. The sign for the park has a small "closed" sign affixed to it. - nanzhere

We had a great experience, stayed several nights. Easy off/on I 40. Close to Arkansas River for great fishing. Free laundromat was a big plus. - Emerald City

Excellent park for easy access to Ozark, AR and surrounding area. Close to fishing, fuel, food, and stores. - Emerald City

Knew from other reviews what we were getting into so we're fine with it. Parking lot to winery had water/electric and a picnic table. That's it. But we knew we would be not be cooking out or doing fire so it suited our needs. Especially for the price:) close to the grape festival and all wineries, drive to Mt.Magazine and Mt.Nebo. Enjoyed a slow weekend w husband:) - Cowancamps

Basic park in the Winery parking lot: water and electric only, but water was still off for winter and electric was only 20 amp. Four miles off interstate on narrow winding road, climbing a mountain. No problem with our fiver and heavy duty truck. We were the only people here, very quiet. Nice restaurant and good food, but not light fare. Be ready for a big, sit-down dinner. We would stop again if in the area. - Dennis M

This park is really a gravel lot with electric and water hookups. The winery is nice and the sites are flat. The low price and the excellent staff make it a 7. I would worry about power surges as the street lights lighting the park flickered a lot and other campers mentioned power problems. Good place to use a surge protector. - x2tpd
