8 RV Parks near Greenbrier, Arkansas

Most of my comments have been covered by other reviewers but here are a couple observations. We were camping in a 35' 5th wheel. The sites down by the water (1 - teens) were mostly too short for our RV. Site 1 is a pull thru that would work. We stayed in 22 and as others have noted, was slightly unlevel. The view out the rear was green trees and very peaceful. Several of the sites on the upper loop would be a pain to get a trailer into, e.g., the camp road for one site was level then had a sharp drop off just past the site. The tow vehicle would be over the crest of the hill, making visibility into the site very difficult while backing up. ATT was very limited with 1 bar coming and going at various spots in our coach, only good for texting. We found better reception down by the snack bar. Ironically, tv antenna reception was decent. However, we were there for peace and quiet and for that it was perfect. For the active ones, there's a really nice walking trail around the lake. Be aware it's strenuous and 3+ miles. The grandkids came up one day and we went swimming in the lake, which was nice but cost $ on top of camping fees. We love camping in the Arkansas hills and this place didn't disappoint. We'll be back. - Motorcyclekelly

Great state park with very nice staff. Spacious sites with many having a nice view of the lake. Some sites are not level and the first we were in we couldn't get the coach level without the front wheels off the ground. Contacted the ranger and we moved to another site. Very helpful. Hookups work fine. Verizon signal is poor and only 3G. Lots of campfires and smoke on the weekends. - RoadtripImages dot com

This is a spectacular place to go rest for a few days. Here are a few notes from our 2 night stay in September:
Excellent and speedy service - there was a problem with our water hydrant. I reported it to the office, and the ranger beat me back to the campsite to fix it.
Nature programs - We attended several naturalist programs. They were informative and added to the value of our stay.
Utilities - all worked well and hookups are well placed.
Sites - all are asphalt, but bring your boards! Wow, they could have spent an extra $75 a site on a bulldozer to level them. All but 3 or 4 sites would require boards. Most slope both front to back and side to side.
Trails - could use some upkeep. They are very narrow and don't appear to have been maintained as well as other Arkansas State Parks.
Internet - You can make a phone call, but don't expect to use much internet. AT&T signal was non-existent. Verizon was minimal. I finally took our Verizon router outside and set it on the power pedestal. I then had enough to do some minimal work, but we couldn't stream anything.
Overall, we were quite pleased with this park. We'll be back to relax, and we won't expect to get any work done next time we stay. - dad2aprincess

Saw the name Toad Suck and thought we HAD to stay here.
It was awesome!! Tons of amenties-basketball court, volley ball area, playground, picnic pavilion, shower and bathrooms, great fishing area. Really nice park. It would be a 10 if it had sewer. Gorgeous view of the river and you can watch the boats load and unload in the locks-part of the Mckellen Kerr navigation system. - Lydia1A

Great COE park. The volunteers are friendly and very helpful. Restrooms/showers very clean. We stayed in site C01, it was a level site. Enjoyed watching the barges and boats going through the locks. There were basket ball courts and play areas through out the park. There are many sites that are for "walk-up" and even more that can be reserved. If you are going to stay here during the weekend or holidays I would reserve a site. The park is very popular during the summer. We will definitely stay here again. - Outwest63

This park was a few miles off the main highway but accessible. We pulled in around 1 am and found it easily. A 14 requires some leveling but was not bad. We were staying in the Conway area for a conference and just drove our motorhome back and forth everyday since it is only 24 feet. The park attendant was friendly and the park was clean. We were close to the water and fished but didn't catch anything as it was cold and rainy. Overall a nice park on the Arkansas River with good parking. - SWilk

Really nice people live/work here. More of a community than an RV park, this is a small, very well managed campground with seasonal and permanent residents. They don't advertise, nor need to: they are usually full. (One Yelp page reported they were CLOSED - and they are not.) The park is near I-40 and they will extend themselves to fit you and your rig in when bad weather or poor health dictates you find a place to dock soon. Twice we have halted there; both times the manager met us at the entrance, walked us to the one pull thru site she had opened up and helped us get in and setup. Sites are close together but are level, have good water pressure and reliable 30/50 amp power. Permanent sites are tidy, well maintained and Quiet Hours are observed. The only drawback is that the entrance is at a sharp left angle and down into the campground (which is probably why we were met at the entrance and walked down into our site.) If you are seeking a swimming pool, entertainment, and a campfire every night....best go elsewhere. These are wonderful people who do not want to be a KOA, just a community of really nice people. - Mom_of_Two

This is an excellent COE campground with easy access to Little Rock. Our site was on the river and we got to watch the barge traffic on the river. The site was quite large with plenty of room for our 50 pound dog. AT&T cell phone was good as was Verizon MiFi. Dish TV was not accessible through the trees, but we were able to get OTA TV easily. We have stayed here before and will stay here again if we are in the Little Rock area. - Bobbi1948

This is a campground next to a lake that used to be the site for Bluegrass shows. There are no more formal shows but the owner and manager says people still come to "pick". There was no "picking" while I was here. The campground is easy access off highway 107. It is run down but pleasant nonetheless. Peaceful and quiet but for the sounds of nature. On the periphery, there are some permanent residents with run down units but the central area by the lake has the visitors with newer units and tidy spots. My spot was frightfully unlevel and the other sites did not look much better. But for $12 a night-fifteen if you do not belong to Escapees, this annoyance can be overlooked. That is what levelers are for. It has no WiFi but I got a bar or two with Verizon and was able to get online well enough. If I come back through Arkansas I will stay here again; only longer than the two days I stayed this visit. - nanzhere

The other comments are true! Don't stay here unless you are dog-tired and have to stop. That's what we did and we didn't sleep much given the noise of the highway. It is more intense than other grounds near the highway as there aren't any trees or walls, etc. to mitigate the noise. The roads in are unkept with many potholes. The grounds are also dirty with litter, broken glass and the site wasn't level. The trash was overflowing and smelled with flies. The inhabitants (which there are many) are a little scary. Staying in a WalMart parking lot would have been better. - RoamerswithHerbie

We spent one night here in our fifth wheel. Don't stop here if you plan to sleep during your stay. The interstate is so close, you are essentially right beside it! The sites were extremely unlevel. We looked at several because we didn't plan to unhook. We had to unhook because there were no sites level enough to stay hooked up. The park was dirty & poorly maintained. It was well lit, so we could take our Yorkie out at night. However the Interstate was less than a football field length away. All night long we could hear cars, trucks using their jake brakes - it was very noisy. We have been fulltime RVers for 10 years & this is in the bottom 10 of the RV Parks we've stayed in. We would never stay here again - a Walmart Parking lot would be preferable. - Gypsy3

This was just an overnight stay and was very convenient to the interstate, but the noise from the interstate was very loud. It is very obvious that most of the campers here are long term. It resembles a mobile home park more than a RV park. Our site was VERY unlevel. We had to jack the front end of the travel trailer so much that it made me quite nervous. Another complaint was the location of the electric: wrong side of the RV. We had to run the cord under the camper. Convenience was nice but does not outweigh our complaints and I would not stay here again. In fact, a Class A pulled in next to us, didn't even get out and left immediately. - tlcmom

We pulled off the interstate shortly after lunch due to a series of heavy thunderstorms moving through the region. There was a wreck at the exit to this RV park and we decided to call it a day and stay safe. We are both glad we made this decision, even though it put us behind schedule. When we arrived at the office, we found that only 1 site was available, having just been vacated a short time before our arrival. This park holds a number of permanent residents. The park has few amenities, and due to the recent rains our site was in a shallow pool of water. The owners evidently don't take care of this facility and it looks like it's been cobbled together over the years. On the positive side, the man in the office was helpful and friendly. It was a good refuge from the storm, but quite pricey. - Piperjim

This would have been ok place to spend night except rate was about twice what it should have been. This should have been a $20 a night park. However manager who checked us in was very nice. Even gave us her cell number just in case we needed anything after closing. Would not stay here again because of price. - Mississippi gal

We stayed here for 2 years (for work reasons) because they were the only site in North Little Rock that allowed our type of dog. The site is run down, the owners don't care what you do, and despite being a 'gated community' the gate is often open and the park is easily accessible to anyone on foot. The owners are whimsical and will enforce some rules, not others according to how they feel on the day. The electric charges if you want to stay longer than a week are exorbitant.
Home built so electric, sewer and water available, but sometimes difficult to access. This was the best site as it was the last and had views of field and woodland. Site backed onto septic tank access. This frequently stank and overflowed in heavy rain.
Easy on off to the I-40. No amenities for children. Basic park. Big rigs beware. Although there is a turn round, you cannot make it without unhooking tow and then will still have difficulty. Park is run by an old couple not interested in improvement or maintenance. Very run down which is a shame as it could be a great park. - TheraBrit

Sites are very tight in the transient row. Many permanent rigs and some quite messy. Had some druggies behind us who were rather scary. Wi-Fi did not work. Nice field to walk dogs. No one in office as there is no office. Only one washer and dryer. - dotr

The park is fine for an overnight stop. They keep two sites just for this purpose. Both have electric and water, no sewer, but there is a dump. Sites weren't perfect, but were reasonably level. Grassy area to walk pets. Laundry room with one washer and dryer. There was no one there because there is no office, but there are three phone numbers to call, very clearly posted. The water was good, restrooms and showers clean, and there was a nice sitting area. There was only one other spot open. Looked like lots of long term residents. We probably wouldn't stay more than a few nights because the sites were close together, and we like a bit more privacy. The owners were very nice. - vidwiz20

We loved this RV Park. Has good prices and is very clean. We would recommend staying here on your next trip to the area. It's trash free. - sdfsdfsdf

Called and made reservations for three days and was very specific that we have a 40 foot coach with toad. This place is NOT big rig friendly so we didn't stay. Access roads are paved and OK but then you get to the dirt/gravel loop roads and you find sharp curves, steep grades, unlevel sites, and trees close to and overhanging the roads. We looked in C loop and A loop and decided to leave. Stay away if you value your rig. - Pjoe

Finding a hidden gem doesn't come along often, but Fairfield Bay was one. Almost all sites overlook Greers Ferry Lake and all are in a beautiful forest park. Some have 50 amp but most have 30 amp. Water is available at most all sites. Check with the city and make reservations. If you are looking for natural beauty, peace and quiet, with lots to do in the area, check this place out. To the best of my knowledge, however, only 2 pull throughs exist, so call ahead. You will not be disappointed. - Gus the Fireant

The COE Van Buren Recreation Area is currently under long term lease to the community of Fairfield Bay. This rustic park sits on the northwest shore of Greers Ferry Lake. Interior roads of the campground are rough. Many of the sites would be challenging to level in. E/W/Wi-Fi is good in loop D. The only bathhouse is located about 3/4 mile from the D loop at the entrance to the campground. Some sites are lakeside, with most having a view of the lake. A small swimming area is adjacent to the camping, as well as a nearby marina where boats can be rented. We have camped here twice, there never being more than 3 or 4 others in the loop during our stay. The $8 per night fee is a year long special to draw new campers to the campground. We would hesitate to pay more that twice that until infrastructure improvements were made. - TnEagle
