11 RV Parks near Fort Smith, Arkansas
Jan 2016 - $25.00
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 stayed here for 3 nights at this lovely park. The spaces side-by-side were close, but long enough for our 37 ft. motorhome and towed vehicle. Plenty of nice shade trees in most of the spaces, which were not numbered. Our space was level on gravel with grass between. Shared 30 and 50 amp available, water good pressure and dump was not bad. I did not use the laundry, because there was only one working washer and unsure of the 4 dryers. The room was dirty and unacceptable to use. However, the ladies bathrooms (2) were individual and clean with shower, toilet and sink. We enjoyed our stay here and the lady in the office was very helpful and pleasant. Some of the spaces were tight to get into with many trees between, but do-able. Will stay here again next time we come to Van Buren. - We3Travel

Due to a breakdown enroute, we had a reservation, cancelled it, and re-instated it. We got the last 50a site available, paying in the office on arrival at 5:15pm. $35 a night for the weekly rate with Good Sam discount seems a bit on the high side, but it is what is it. We had a nice pull through site under the trees with plenty of toad parking, but impossible to get our satellite TV. A cable box was available with a $70 deposit, but that would only serve one of our TVs so we passed, getting by on about 18 local OTA channels. Be sure you use a water pressure gauge as mine indicated 112psi. Sewer fittings are slip-in and the neighbor's overflowed when I dumped my tanks. We had a peaceful week there and will stay again to visit family. - AFChap

Arrived to find office closed (even though sign on door said it was open). Called the number on door, husband answered and said he was surprised his wife wasn't in office, advised us to pick a site and he would sort out when he got off work. After we parked AND hooked up, wife arrived and told us we were in the wrong spot - in fact she told us she had no record of our reservation! In fairness to us, she allowed us to stay in the spot and agreed to move the other party when they arrived - she did have the grace to apologize profusely for the mix-up. Then, the sites, all sand with a bit of gravel, not marked in any way, not sure the rate warranted the charge made for what we got. Campground does not have a map, so finding a site was not easy. Did note that when husband was there, he showed everyone to their site. Otherwise the campground is pretty, and not many "permanents" in pleasant surroundings, but would hate to think access would be like during or after a rain. - Retired Wanderers

This is a bare bones over night type park. If self contained it is adequate for stays as long as desired for other outside activities. The park is strictly for travelers or workers. It is not family oriented but is pet friendly. Payment is cash only, and they will accept checks from travelers. WiFi is not great, but available most of the time. - Oddyssey

Sites are gravel (very little in some sites) and are not level. Hookups are at back of site so we were unable to leave our tow vehicle hooked up. CG is very close to I-40 and there is a lot of noise. This CG is convenient for a 1 night stay but I would not like to be here for more than overnight. Tow vehicle had to be parked in front of our motor home. - Grammy8

We stayed here on our way home. The lots are angled, making it easy for us to get into. There was quite a bit of highway noise. The lots are long and they have Wi-Fi, but it was spotty. The bathrooms were tidy, and we had phone service. We enjoyed our stay, but we will probably find one a little further from the highway to avoid the noise next time. - lougreene67

This park has 2 parts. A backs up to the water with a picnic table behind the camper and close to the water. All sites are asphalt and level. There is a nice space between the campsites with grass in between. B is in more of the woods, with more space in between sites than A. We drove around B. B 23 is very unlevel but the rest looked fine to us. - National Parks Traveler

On the day we arrived we had friends get here first to someone setting up in their reserved site. No reserved signs were put on either of our sites. We had a tent camper in our site. He had packed up to leave when we arrived. The site has a nice creek view. The mosquitoes were bad, the grass was high and weedy. The pad is asphalt with gravel patio. Partial shade. It was real quiet on Thursday pretty quiet on Friday. Then on Saturday and we were in A loop lots of folks come to bank fish and one had his German Shepherd roaming no leash and was nose to nose with our little dog properly on a chain at our site. One close camper had some kind of large dinner with tons of cars parked which I thought was unsafe for the kids on bikes. There is only one dump station. Our site had water and electricity. Nice to have water but still have to be conservative without the full hook up. Nowhere for it to go. Fishing here was pretty nonexistent. It was one hot October weekend. Bank fisherman don't bother to take their trash with them. Saw trash bag thrown on ground at the pavilion. There was no host Thursday when we arrived, glad our tent camper problem had been dealt with by our friend before we got here. There was no help to be found. We called the phone number, got answering machine. - AR Traveller

The B loop is 50 amp and forested. The A loop is 30 amp and has water views. All sites had water; none had sewer. Most sites at B loop were excessively out of level. Our front jacks were fully extended and we were still not level. There is a nice hike/bike loop through and around the campground. - Wandering With Us

Site was rustic. Needed a long sewer hose because we moved forward to use Satellite. Gravel and not level but scenic once settled. Narrow access on the turn to RV section. Suggest going through the parking lot to access. Facilities were clean and our interactions with staff was wonderful. - godoit

This is a small Military RV Park but very well maintained. We stayed 2 nights here and we will definitely be back. Everyone there was really nice. Interior roads were weathered and a little tight for my rig but it was easy to navigate. - Keith Goins

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

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

A 30-yr-old campground that looks like it. No WiFi; cable access discouraged. I will look for another park next time. Tight sites; had to share a patio and table with the neighbors. - AvalonDF41

Always clean always friendly staff would have given 10 but sites need some work leveling. This is my go to place on I-40 travel. Only used site with water and electric didn't need full hook up. - USMC47

Just came in for one night. It is located way off road, up through a beautiful residential area. With no signs telling you where to go. This is located in a private beautiful golf course. Only one row has full hookups, the other row has electric and sewer. The road coming in, had some low tree branches, so that it a little challenging. - RV Roving Seeker

This is a very quiet park behind the golf course that is not easy to find. We were visiting family that live on the golf course so it was very convenient. Water pressure is good, 50 amp hook-up works fine and the grounds are well kept as you might expect at a golf course. I don't think that this park gets much use and we were the only RV there. It is mainly for golfers but they seemed happy to have us. We will certainly be back when we are in the area. We have a 40 foot 5th wheel. - KD7UCH

Eagle Crest RV campground and golf course was most unusual . You find the RV park by driving through a residential area and into the golf course parking lot. The RV ( 18 ) sites are down the hill and past/behind the gold cart storage building. The park is a tall grass field with some small patios and offers FHU. It was basically deserted ( one other coach ) when we arrived. There are no trees for shade, no tables, no wi-fi, no fire pits and no showers so you better be self contained. It offers highway noise throughout the night. They say they have a host, but he lives on the golf course – not at the campground. He was good to come down and introduce himself and offer assistance. We came here to take advantage of the golf special, but upon arriving, we learned of a tournament, and our promised two rounds of golf might not be possible. I think that the golf professional knew that when he took our call, but he still said come on to the campground. The course wanders through a residential neighborhood and looks fine. I didn’t get to play it because of the tournament. Our below rating covers only the campground. The overall rating might have been higher if I could have gotten on the course. We’re pretty sure we would not consider this facility for a future stop. - 5thwheeler

From a big rig perspective only; I have a 42' tag. Low hanging branches on narrow paths in the park were a problem. This is more a 5th wheel, tow trailer type of park and I would not recommend it for most Class A units, especially 40' or longer. Also, unless you have a portable satellite, satellite is not usable in this park. Verizon, AT&T work OK but the park WiFi was better and pretty good.
The park itself is not a bad place. A little noise from Highway 59 but not so bad. Nice pines, quiet. I had to smile some because their park rules state you must keep your site clean, yet, there were many permanent/long term campers that kept their sites anything but clean and uncluttered.
I would return with a different rig but not with the big rig. - R_R PRanger

We would of liked it better if the restrooms didnt have mold in them. We stayed there because our son lived close by and we were traveling through and wanted to visit. The price was good with the PA discount . The sights were level they were concrete strips. We would stay again if we had too. - cindy coffey

This is an old, tree covered park, but well maintained except for fallen leaves, and picnic tables need paint. Some full-timers with typical outside storage items. Gravel roads with adequate travel width and high-branched trees. An eclectic mix of gravel, paved and concrete pads, all level. There are four short-term 30 amp pull-thrus with double-strip concrete pads; the three short-term 50 amp pull-thrus were gravel. It rained every day and night, but the roads and pads, with a few low spot exceptions, drained well leaving the surfaces useable. Utilities were serviceable; antenna TV reception was excellent. AT&T cell was adequate; park internet was adequate for web surfing when others were not using it. The indoor pool is available only in the summer. Some road noise, but quiet at night. Excellent value with PA. Would return. - LoneWolf

The folks who run this park are among the nicest we have ever encountered. One of them even helped me install new wiper blades on our pusher (a job I am really bad at doing). This park has something I've never seen before. When we checked in (late afternoon) the park was almost empty. After dinnertime, it was almost full. By the time we go out of bed in the morning, almost every coach and trailer was gone. Every day we were there it was the same thing. I guess they have a lot of one-nighters. Our site was nice and level with lots of room for our friend's car in front and our towed in back (plus our 37 ft. MH). Utilities were all fine. Cable was good. WiFi was adequate. Most sites were at least partially shaded, a big plus. While the price might have been a bit high for the overall quality of the park, we would absolutely camp here again. The only real complaint I might have is the area's general air quality. There was some kind of chemical smell in the air that reminded me of Bakersfield, CA, where you can almost slice the air with a knife. This in no way is the parks fault; just an observation. Daily trash pick-up was a nice touch. You can also order pizza, wings, and a few other items from the office. Fort Smith, AR, is a short drive east, and there are a LOT of interesting historic sites to visit. I even earned a clean bill of health at Miss Laura's, a famous brothel ! - dhaney1944

The park is peaceful and quiet. The check in people were friendly. It was an easy stop for an overnight stay on I-40 East. - bwandwhitey

KOA discount for an overnight stay. Site was level, dirt surface, and pull-thru with FHU and 50 amp electric. Most sites and interior roads were muddy. We had good Verizon voice and data reception. Easy access from Interstate 40. Friendly and efficient reception at the office. We would stay here again. - Dave51
