8 Parks near Forrest City, Arkansas
Feb 2017 - $25.00
Good overnight stop. Area near entrance is questionable. Gravel interior and sites but they all appeared level. For $25 you get what you paid for...A level, full hookup site. I would pass on the cafe out front as the food was marginal at best. - usernametaken

Great overnight stop at a good price. For the money I could have easily given it 5 stars, but there are no amenities and it's not a fancy place, as others have noted. The area around the entrance is seedy, but it's a plain and simple place to hang your hat when traveling I40. It was muddy when we pulled out (access just gravel). The owner was a gentleman, very friendly and welcoming. - Menno

Our favorite Arkansas State Park. Loved this site, we were in full hookup section #60, in the first loop to left. Sister and family and friends came on weekend and we had the whole loop to ourselves. Nice group setting. Quiet during week, but full weekends during fall months. Went to Cowboy Church & outdoor breakfast in Equestrian campsite around the bend on Sunday. Had good friends with us the whole two weeks. Hiking, kayaking, biking were excellent. Geocaches fun, tho we found those on earlier trips. Parking in our site was perfect, room for two vehicles even after parking RV. - Damon-Becky

Camped there years ago. Has been updated and improved campsites. Great park away from it all. Terrific people at the visitor center. Miles of trails to hike. Mountain bike and horse trails, too. It is not too far off I-40. - firerescue712

Positive: We visited this awesome park because of the previous reviews. They are very right, this park is awesome and well worth the 20 minutes off the main highway. The park and bath facilities are very well maintained and the bath facilities did have climate control. The staff is extremely courteous and so were the rangers. Awesome trails and not to far from wynne or forest city.
Negative: There are about two spots on the campground that if you hold your phone just right and the moons align, you can get AT&T cell signal. We are really dependent on cell service and we saw "no service" the whole time there. We had to drive 2 miles outside the park to get cell service. Staff claims Verizon service may be stronger there.
Will we stay there again?....good question. We have to be prepared to be detached from civilization completely. - DuranDDuran1

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

Internal roads are paved, sites are level and are spacious, facilities worked well, site was satellite friendly. Staff were friendly, T-Mobile cell service was very good. The park was quiet. Pull into the park (last entrance to the casino lot), park, use the phone to get your site, setup and then go register. We would stay here again. - KDSpree

As usual, we had a large, FHU site with a long, cement pad and patio. There is grass between the sites. The 50+ channel cable TV was OK but there is no internet in the park. You can get Wi-Fi in the hotel lobby. We did have a major issue with the utilities. An hour after hooking up, the grassy area between our site and the site on the passenger side of the RV was flooding. Nothing (hose, faucet, water inlet) seemed to be leaking, so the leak must have been something underground. Because they no longer have an office in the RV park, I had to call the hotel front desk and wait an hour for the maintenance person to show up. We had to pack everything up and change sites. The maintenance worker was told by the front desk that we couldn't get any of our nightly fee back but we could get a free breakfast buffet the next morning. The individual bathrooms are in two sets of disguised trailers and the floors tend to get slightly flooded after someone showers. The last time I checked, the 4 machine laundry in a smaller trailer between the bathroom trailers did not have hot water. For the cost, this is an OK park for an overnight en route, but it lacks the facilities and amenities for a longer stay. - Jerry S

Nice RV park with paved main roads with wide concrete site pads with patio, table and grass yards. Separate RV area away from Casino and parking lot. Full hook ups, located mid-site. No trees for good satellite signal, no wi fi but free cable tv. 5 bars and 4G Verizon signal. No pool, rec center or playground. 15 miles to Memphis.
Pull in past the casino and stop at RV park and use direct phone to front desk for registration. Good place for a base to explore area and Memphis. Roving security patrols. Would stay there again. Very long back in and pull thru sites. No discounts. - Pepper Dan

Once again, the cost is the only good thing about this park. The RV park office is still unmanned and it is still a hassle to check in at the hotel. The hotel check in staff is clueless about RVs and the sites in the park. Except for one pull through row in the back of the park, all the sites are back in. These site pads are cement and the roads and most of the rest of the park is asphalt. My site and most of the ones I saw was not level and would have been very tight to back into if there had been RVs and toads on each side. Fortunately, the park was (once again) only about 20% full. All sites are FHU with decent able TV but the Wi-Fi was useless. The bathrooms are inadequate for size park and are not cleaned often enough because there is no RV park staff. The laundry cost is still reasonable but, again, there are not enough machine for this park. There is nothing recreational in the park. This is the 6th or 7th park in a row as we traveled through OK, TX, La, and MS on this trip where the park has no recycling. - Jerry S

Very nice park with concrete sites and grass area between sites. Some pull throughs and some back in's but either way it is an easy park to navigate. A very nice golf course right next door and another very nice one five miles away but still in the casino area. Easy hook-up's and very good free WI-FI. Considering it is just a casino RV park it is a very nice park. - Linda Allan

We wanted to spend some time in Clarksdale but this was the closest acceptable RV Park. It's about a 50 minute drive to Ground Zero Club.
The spaces are very tight and the area is lit up like a football field at night. We were there on a weekend with a car show across the street at Sam's so there was quite a party going on in the RV Park. Still, a good value with access to the hotel facilities, pool, etc. The shower/laundry was spotless-very nice showers-and the grounds were spotless. I only gave the "service" 3 stars since check-in is at the hotel desk and a challenge as far as maneuvering. Drive around the back of the hotel and park in the casino Iot. I suggest picking an unoccupied spot before you check in since the hotel staff doesn't seem to know how long the spaces are. - J & J
