Make sure to enter and exit in the driveway next to the house (office); the other two are too steep for motorhomes or towables. Gravel roads and sites (most level) are not wide, but are negotiable; three concrete pads near the front. We pulled in after two days of rain and the roads and sites were drained well and solid as long as you stay on the gravel; grass strips between some sites was still pretty soft. The park is clean and well maintained and the full timers sites were tidy. Bathhouses were in a mixed condition. Toilets and sinks were clean. Showers had deteriorating paint and one had melted soap in the soap dish which made it appear dirty; floors needed a good wet mop. This and the rusty supply cupboard and cleaning products clustered around the unconcealed water heater made the bathhouses uninviting. Utilities worked and the free wi-fi and cable worked well. There are no picnic tables or fire rings, but our dogs loved the 5 open acres of grass. The adjacent Tyson plant (100 yards away) produced a constant low frequency rumble that was only noticeable outside; it makes baked goods, so no bad odors. The owner takes only cash or checks, but is friendly and helpful with local information. This is not a destination park, but as the only park in Fayetteville, it is an acceptable base to see the surrounding area. We would stay again. We camped at Southgate RV Park of Fayetteville in a Fifth Wheel.

Rate included Good Sam discount. Entrance (downhill). When leaving, you are directed to another exit which is easier. Gravel lots; long enough. Grass mowed, utilities worked good. Payment cash or check. No one worked in office; owner out and about in park most of the time. Were given lot assignment over the phone (were asked to call ahead when were approx 60 min out). We camped at Southgate RV Park of Fayetteville in a Fifth Wheel.

There weren't many options available in this area. We chose this as it seemed near the interstate. We got there near dusk and had a very difficult time finding the place and once there had difficulty figuring out the sites available. Once parked, it was a muddy mess. The owner was friendly enough but we'd rather park at Wal-Mart than be in this mess, once a mobile home park in process of converting to RV park. We camped at Southgate RV Park of Fayetteville in a Motorhome.

Sites are mostly gravel, or old asphalt. Full hookups, but some of them look as though they could use some TLC. Ours worked fine however. There is shade, but mostly for seasonal rigs. Plenty of grass if your dog behaves well and can be off leash to chase ball/frisbee. Next to a Tyson plant, but we didn't notice much in the way of bugs or odor. We didn't use the laundry or showers/restrooms, but did check them out. Pretty basic, could maybe use a bit more cleaning. The owner/manager was very friendly and helpful. We were there 2 nights so we could see some of Buffalo National River and Ozark National Forest. We would probably stay again. We camped at Southgate RV Park of Fayetteville in a Motorhome.

No one at office. Had no idea if rates on sheet in pocket includes discount. Way overpriced for what you get, but it is the only thing available in the area. Sites poorly laid out, especially the sewer connections. Fortunately we did not need sewer tonight. About 5 of the pull throughs are long enough to keep the toad connected. Bathrooms are painted a dark tan; floors dripped with paint. Cleaning supplies stacked around the water heater. No towels or dryer for your hands at the lavatory. In general, I was not impressed. We would plan to stay elsewhere. We camped at Southgate RV Park of Fayetteville in a Motorhome.

This small private park sits alongside a state highway in a small urban environment so has a fair amount of road noise. We did not use the bathrooms but they looked decent. Our site has a level paved area for our trailer. Water, cable, electricity and sewer are on the left side of the trailer so work well for us though the sewer is towards the front. Both WiFi (no password) and the cable TV worked very well. The guy in the office was very helpful. Sites are generously spaced. Verizon 3G cell coverage was good. We had something like 80 channels on Cox cable with excellent quality. Many sites are drive through. Big rigs should have no problem with the drives or obstacles. There is an incline when you enter the park, but if you come in the main entrance that should not be a problem. Southgate was just fine for an overnight. It was easy to get in and out. The services worked great and the price was reasonable. We paid $29 with the Good Sam discount. We camped at Southgate RV Park of Fayetteville in a Travel Trailer.

Great owners! We stayed here during Bike, Blues & BBQ ($500/site during the event), but stayed on afterwards for a week with full-hookup for $23/night. Basic gravel parking lot of a campground with not much going on for it. Bring a raised fire ring if you wish to have a fire. Convenient location, but in an industrial area.

This is a fairly bare bones park but it is quiet (in spite of being next door to a Tyson plant) and the owner is very nice. The Wi-Fi and our cell phones worked great. The laundry left a lot to be desired (we went into town) and the restrooms are pretty dilapidated. There is a nice grassy area for pets and areas adjacent to the park for walking our dog. We felt that the pull through sites were fine in size. We would return to this park. We camped at Southgate RV Park of Fayetteville in a Fifth Wheel.

This park is a fairly nice no frills park conveniently located close to I-540. Can be a little tight for big rigs and water pressure is rather low. The park has a nice grassed in park type area that is a nice view from some sites. The owner charges up big time when U of A athletic events are in town, there are almost no other RV parks around! I don't blame the owner for his pricing policy, if it was mine, I would do the same. We would stay again. We camped at Southgate RV Park of Fayetteville in a Motorhome.

This is basically a bare bone RV park. The inside road is gravel and most of the sites are gravel; the rest were on grass. Most of the sites were pretty leveled. The electricity is on the low side, and I had to watch my electrical usage. Note that the park was ¾ empty and A/C was not needed. The one washer ($3.50 per load) and one dryer (free) was in one of the two bathrooms. The two showers were clean but not appealing. We opted not to use them. Verizon air card and cell phone worked well here. This campground also had free Wi-Fi, but we did not use it. Tyson processing plant was next door and a prison was about ½ mile away. There was very little noise at night. We would probably come back again because there were very few campgrounds in this area. We thought that $29 per night was a bit steep for what we got. We camped at Southgate RV Park of Fayetteville in a Fifth Wheel.

This was a very clean park with a No Frills offer. The price reflects a strong 50 amp service, good water pressure and a level site. It was quiet and the owners were great. This is what it is about. No Frills, don't charge an arm and a leg but give the basic service. One of our favorites! We camped at Southgate RV Park of Fayetteville in a Motorhome.

This is a simple, no frills park, convenient to the interstate and to town. We really liked it here as it had large grassy areas around the edge of the park and it was very quiet. We stayed briefly as an overnight stop so did not explore the park, and only spoke to the owner/manger on the phone as he was not at the park that particular day. It was nice that he always answered the phone and was very friendly and helpful. We would like to return. We camped at Southgate RV Park of Fayetteville in a Motorhome.

Very nice place to stay: previous to this we had been volunteering and were staying in a forested area. Opening the door to a wide spacious meadow and able to see the sun rise was a treat. Friendly staff, showed us where our site was, and asked if we needed any help. He gave us the history to the park and that helped us to see why the park was laid out the way it was. He was out and about for a couple hours and visible outside the following day. I can see it could be a problem if it rained very much, however, was very, very nice, and for me a 9 is almost impossible to achieve, so I rated it very high.

The owner is very nice and helpful. A lot of the sites are full-timers. The pull-through site was mostly grass mixed with gravel and a little wet due to all the rain recently in AR. This is an overnight park. But, you do need to see "The Castle" in Wilson Park Fayetteville! This is cash or check only park. Restroom and laundry are combined; clean but definitely in need of repair. Would stay here again overnight due to low price for full-hook ups and free Wi-Fi that works and cable TV.

Nothing special and a bit over-priced at $28, but the park offers easy access to Fayetteville and management is very friendly. The bathrooms were clean, but could use a little sprucing up since the concrete floors and cinder block weren't very inviting (we were happy to use our own self-contained facilities). Wi-Fi works very well and we weren't at all bothered by any road noise, barking dogs or the Tyson plant next door (don't worry, there's no noise and no smell at all from the facility). Be sure to check out Mrs Deen's Southern Food just down the street; it's a Fayetteville institution and a great place to sample real Southern Home Cooking at very moderate prices. We camped at Southgate RV Park of Fayetteville in a Motorhome.
