8 Parks near Forrest City, Arkansas
Aug 2016 - $25.00
As you drive into the RV park on the access road (kinda from the grocery store parking lot and behind the restaurant) you might wonder what you are getting into. But the park is a very nice place to stay, especially if your on the road. The park only has about 25 sites as of now but there are about 10 pull thru sites in the middle that can handle the biggest coach with tow attached. No showers or restroom but still a good value as full hookup and cable were very good. You do get some noise from the interstate but not unbearable. Level gravel site with nice grass between. - 1texan

Of all our years RVing, I don't think I have ever run across any park owner more involved and more caring than here. And it's always kept in pristine condition. We were here one time for several weeks, and my husband helped him out with some of his landscaping. This guy works hours and hours every day keeping this place immaculate; we are very impressed.
One of the cool things is if you call him and ask him if he has space, he will let you know. But then he will even put a cone on one of the lots for you to reserve it if it's filling up and you know for sure that your coming. Then he will send you a text with a great map and directions on how to get into the park. Don't tell him this, but he could charge way more than what he charges.
All of the sites are from what I can tell completely level. We have never had to do any leveling as many times as we have stayed here. Almost all of the sites are pull-through. E-Z Check In & Out because if he's not here, you can stop at the Ole SawMill Cafe when you arrive and check in there, or you can stop as you leave in the morning and pay up. The rate is $25 for 30 amp and $30 for 50 amps. It's a deal!
It is well lit at night, he has security cameras everywhere, and keeps an eye on the place via his mobile phone.

A simple overnighter stop. Far enough off I-40. Watch closely for the blue/white signs for the Colony Inn and the campground. Be prepared to turn right just past the Exxon. It will look like you are pulling into a Food Giant grocery store parking lot. Which you are. But keep looking to your right for the last blue/white sign which directs you to the campground. The owner is very concerned that you are taken care of. Nothing fancy but does the job. - CharlieB

We love it here. I'd say our only complaint here is how poor the fishing is from the bank. No pier
.. and we dont gave a boat.
Otherwise... love it. - ASHLittle

Very nice park with nice campsites. Pads are concrete with asphalt drives. Some of the sites have very good shade. Pull-through sites are available. Very spacious sites and not at all crowded together. Lake access is provided with a swimming beach. We stayed in campground B area which was full hookups with 50 amp service. - Harleyjt1

As other reviewers have said, the park is several miles from commercial shopping and unless you have satellite TV, you are off the grid unless you travel to Forrest City (13 miles) or Wynne (about 7 miles). That said, it is located in the Crowley's Ridge area of Arkansas, a unique area that contrasts sharply with the surrounding delta farmland. Wildlife can be seen throughout the park. For golfers, there is a 27-hole course that is just as unique as the park is. Staff at both the park office and the golf pro shop were both friendly and helpful. - Lakewood90

I was tired, it was dark, and I didn't know what was ahead. Saw a sign that said an RV park was off the next exit. I pulled into an empty campground. As I sat there wondering what to do, a guy came over from the hotel lobby and told me to check in there.
When he told me it was $30 for the night, I said, "You're kidding me". He shrugged, I shrugged, and I paid the fee. I feel like he made up the price on the spot, and I wondered if I was even supposed to be there. The park looked abandoned. Many of the utility posts were broken and tipped over, junk lined the area, and it had a bad feeling about it. Not a deal at even half the price I paid. - Doggie Mom

The previous review is still accurate, except the cost went up $1.00. The bathrooms were not open, and they did offer us the use of a hotel room to take a shower in. We used it as an overnight stop while on the road. The sites are in various degrees of disrepair, not all full hookup sites where fully functional. It appeared that all RVs that showed up were able to get full hookups. - Mariposa Paul

The campground is right across from a very busy truck stop and next to the interstate as well, therefore it is very noisy. No discounts available and overpriced. The grounds were not kept up and needed maintenance. Easy in and easy out is about the best I can say about this campground, it was good for an overnight stay as we were tired. I would try to avoid it and plan my stop in another city. - Heureaux

This is a relatively new state park.... i believe that i read that it is the newest Arkansas state park. It is small and very nicely laid out on what appears to be a small island in the lake connected by a causeway. We really liked the park, and it was a great place for kids to explore and play with very little traffic. The only negative is that there is very little to do or places to eat in the nearby town. so if you like to set up and stay put, then this is the place for you.... if you like to set up and hit the road exploring the area... you may find yourself back at the campground after about an hour. I will say that the new visitors center is very nice with lots to look at for the kids. - Bama Bill

This is the newest state park in Arkansas and it is wonderful. Sites are all level, full hookup. Bathroom facilities consist of 4 lockable rooms, each with a toilet, sink, and shower. Very nice.
Sites are well spaced, and every one has a view of the small lake. There is a nearby swimming beach area, in addition to a boat launch ramp.
There is a nice hiking trail across the road from the campground, with signs identifying the various species of trees found in the forest, some of which are fairly old. - HercMaster

This was our second trip up there (no phone service with verizon)! We had #4 first time and #14 last time! These are great lots & from Monday thru Wednesday we were the only ones there. We love going to the mouth of St Francis River on the Mississippi River and fishing! Caught nice size blue cats!! Love it up there! - sjall242

In very poor condition. I tried two pedestals and my power management system rejected both because the ground and neutral were reversed. Got my money back and went to Forrest City. - camprats

There may be some confusion in which park this represents. It is on the north side of I-40 behind a Motel 6. There is a excellent Mexican restaurant in the office complex. My overall rating represents the poor maintenance in this park. It does have concrete slabs in all sites and concrete roads. The far right row of sites have full hookup with 30amp power. We have stayed at this park more often than any other in our 12 years on the road. Main reason is location from home (easy long day of travel), plus the Mexican restaurant. Good for overnight, but would not want to stay much longer at a time. We will definitely stay here in the future for the reasons noted. Point of interest: don't try the RV park on the south side of I-44. It also is behind a motel. We stayed there once and were concerned we wouldn't be able to get out, due to the poor roads. - WAM

We only stayed here because an accident on I-40 had created a traffic jam. The park is located behind a Motel 6 north side of I-40 at exit 218. The only positive thing was that we had a level and spacious pull through site on a concrete pad. Negatives are that it is not secure and is located in a seedy area, and the facilities are in a state of disrepair. I was shocked to find no less than six dead crickets in the bathroom sink and toilets and showers that had not been cleaned for quite some time. - Altoflyfisher

We arrived at the park and we were taken back by the condition. It honestly looked like the place had been abandoned. Several electrical boxes with wires hanging out. Grass was knee deep and I wouldn't ask my worst enemy to enter the shower/bath house. NASTY!!! Do yourself a favor and go elsewhere. - rynho29

Stay away from site #4 unless you want to get a tingle from an ungrounded power box! We had left a nice Super Walmart in Dothan, AL, that morning, but realized our trailer generator was not working up to par, and we were low on propane. We decided to find a park close to I-40 and out from Little Rock (the highway from Birmingham to Memphis had taken its toll on us). The best thing I can say about it is that most of the electrical hook-ups worked. We were able to turn on the electric element in the hot water heater and use our electric space heater and then get the heck out of here early the next morning. In our situation it was worth the price for a ONE night stay. Although they say all lots are pull-throughs, you had better walk it first. The tree limbs are not trimmed back enough to safely pull through with a rig that is nearly 13' high, and it is difficult to find a pad site that will accommodate a 53' rig (left connected for a fast exit). From the look of it only sites 5, 6 and maybe 7 were able to be backed into, if the cars of the motel "guests" weren't in the way. I'd pick pad 5 (easier to back into and less likely to get blocked in). Oh yes, the night manager really doesn't seem to care about much of anything. - Okie Drifter

This place is right next to IH-40 and US-49 intersection, so the trucks go by all night and its not quiet. But the 30amp elec worked and we could run our AC. The pull-through gravel sites are mostly level. I've seen outhouses with less bugs and that had been cleaned more often than the RV park bath-house. One sink worked in the men's restroom, and the toilet looked like it hadn't been flushed or cleaned in a while, although it worked. The woman's toilets had not been flushed in a long time, but there was the bird's nest with a house wren in it. No continental breakfast, unlike what the flyer for the park in their office states (when I asked, the guy behind the counter said he would start in a few weeks). We stayed here in a pop-up trailer. I would stay again if I was dead tired and needed a place to sleep. - wbmoore

This is an RV park not a campground. Thus, there are RV sites, not campsites. The sites are large concrete pads with FHU and cable TV. There is no internet service. - Jerry S

Excellent campsites with paved pads, tables and grills. All are pull-through with water, sewer, and 50 amp power. The laundry is quite good and reasonably priced. As stated in previous reviews, call the hotel on the phone at the bath-house before pulling into a site. The very low cost makes this a nice place to stop for a while. We would definitely stay here again. - wandrr
Oct 2015 - $1.00
Previous reviews have mentioned how to check in. We have been here numerous times over the decades. Our rate based on free nights from the casino. This park has FHU sites with large, level cement pads and patios. The cable TV is 70+ channels and most sites appear to be satellite friendly. There is no 802.11 network connection in the park - you may be able to get one in the hotel lobby. The bath and laundry facilities were dirty and inadequate for this park. For those of you with a certain perspective, there were some customers here you might classify as a potential threat to your safety. The sites are great, but the lack of a check in office and internet in the RV park and poor bath and laundry facilities lowers my rating substantially. As usual in the region, there was no recycling. - Jerry S

Again, this is an RV park not a campground. My review of last fall gives more information about the park. The sites have FHU but can have leveling issues and be tight if the park is crowded. For my third visit in a row, the park was only about 15% occupied. There is cable and unreliable internet. I still consider the check in at the hotel an unacceptable inconvenience. Not staffing the RV park is one reason the bathrooms and showers are not clean. - Jerry S

As the name states this is a casino RV park. No patio, picnic table, grill or place to relax outside your RV. It is a nice clean well maintained place to park your rig however. The property is manicured and pleasing to the eye. Let's face it; the owners want you to park and head to the casino We are not gamblers so the casino is of little attraction to us. But we did enjoy a few day to relaxing and shaking off some road rust. There is a very nice golf course next door and I recommend it. Interior roads are paved with nice concrete pads to park. All the utilities are in one location at the back of the parking pad. If like me, you may need extra sewer hose. And yes ..... you have to check in a the hotel. It's not a big deal. Times are tough in the casino business so the office at the RV park remains closed. - bamawig
