4 Parks near Gillham, Arkansas
May 2016 - $8.00
the rate reflects a 50% Federal Senior Pass. This is a very nice COE park on the Cossatot River just after it comes out of Gilham Lake Reservoir. It is showing its ware and could use some spiffing up, but still nice. You do not want to let your GPS guide you to this park. You will want to take the turn-off just north of Gillham on Highway 59 and follow the signs. It is well-signed on the Highway, then there is one well-signed left turn. It is always good paved road. Once you get to the park, the sign is confusing. You will want to take the right turn to get to the campground. Some of the sites are on a bluff above the river, others are a little away from the river and more wooded. We liked the river side for the view and for the sound of the river. We had good 50 amp service. You do share a water faucet with a neighbor, so do bring some extra hose. We were partly under trees, so had to use our portable satellite dish to get DirecTV. We had strong Verizon voice and data. The sites are large and level. Some sites can be reserved, others are first-come. You pay at the booth as you enter the campground area. This made an excellent stop for a few nights for us. We would stay again. - TheJim

Though this was a nice area to stay overnight finding this campground was very difficult. We ended up on a locked gate road to Coon Creek and had to back up for 1/4 mile to turn around. Each campsite shares water with the next so have lots of water hose to get water to your RV. The stream running by was quiet and peaceful but after the adventure we had getting there I doubt we would try this spot again! - Gloria S.

This a very nice small park on Dequeen Lake. All of the sites have at least a water view of the lake. Some of the sites are a little small with your slide outs, but they all have a lower deck with a table, fire ring and a barbecue grill. The upper level site have a lot of shade which is nice, but tough if you want a satellite signal. We will stay here again. - TEXASBOY

Wonderful COE park with a beautiful view of the lake. We stayed in the off season and, with America the Beautiful pass, our rate was only $5! Our site was alongside the lake, a drive-through site with a terraced deck which had a picnic table, BBQ grill and a firepit built in. It was quiet and very peaceful. Great view of sunset and sunrise. Would camp here again. Only drawback is the road down to the lakeside sites is a bit narrow for a big rig, but still doable. Great satellite and Verizon reception. - 2006dsdp

This park is on the north side of De Queen lake. COE outdid themselves on this park. Good level paving to park RV. All sites except waterfront in shade most of the day. The unique thing is the terracing. Picnic table & BBQ grill were 3' lower, then the fire ring was on a lower terrace. Fishing pier also. There are 2 other parks on the south side of the lake. If they are anywhere near as good as Bellah Mine, they shouldn't be missed. - Friz

Beautiful park in a secluded and very quiet area on DeQueen Lake about 8 miles from town. Extremely clean facilities. Very polite and professional camp hosts. I stayed in the section near the boat ramp, which is newer and sites are paved, level, and well separated. Nice shade throughout the park. - 2bearbill

This is a very pleasant and well-maintained public campground with spacious sites. It is managed by the US Corps of Engineers, so fees are inexpensive. Verizon voice and MiFi coverage is excellent. Many sites do not have satellite view from roof-mounted TV dishes. Based on our motorhome's power center, the campground's 50-amp receptacle seemed to be wired for 30-amp, at least at Site 11. - Ray Czaplewski

This is a nice park on a small lake. The sites in back of the park are where you want to be. All of the sites on the right side as you drive in are very shaded and level. These are all back in. The sites on the left side are pull through, some with a water view. The front of the park have all grassy sites: some which didn't look all that level which is why I gave this park a "7" rating. Would definitely stay here again. - TEXASBOY

Beavers Bend State Park is eight miles north of Broken Bow, Oklahoma in the Kiamichi mountains.
It was constructed by the CCC in the 30's. Great hiking and scenery.
The park has four camping loops for RV's all with 30A electric and water. Some sites with great views of the Mountain Fork river. Only Buckeye Loop (B loop) allows site specific reservations.
We were in river front site 12 in Buckeye Loop. - drfife

Very scenic park, lots of hiking. Swimming available as well. Only negative was the pay showers (25 cents for 3 minutes- I only needed 2 quarters per shower, I'm bald lol). - Bob806

One electric loop, with a new bathhouse. No swimming allowed at river in front of campground and old electric grid wouldn't allow for a 10, although an engaging and attentive park host was a bonus. ATT seemed to work better than Verizon for a change. Lots of shade makes for bearable summer camping. - Airstream 25
