Super quiet RV park that is pet friendly and motor-cycle friendly. Off the beaten path, but easy to find and work the few minutes to get there from the highway. The park is replete with mature oak trees that offer great Summer shade and there is a medium-sized in-ground pool. We camped at Shady Oaks Campground & RV Park in a Motorhome.

Nice place and close to the Buffalo River NRA. Camp host was very helpful answering questions about the area. Campground is kind of small but with so much to do in the area, it didn't matter to us. We were here off season on a fall trip, but it looks like the pool & playground would be nice for families. I'd stay here again. We camped at Shady Oaks Campground & RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Buffalo River NRA nearby. Grocery shopping & beer, liquor just down the road. Beautiful area of Arkansas.

Super quiet RV park that is pet friendly and motor-cycle friendly. Off the beaten path, but easy to find and work the few minutes to get there from the highway. The park is replete with mature oak trees that offer great Summer shade and there is a medium-sized in-ground pool. Shady Oaks is less than an hour away from just about every Ozark attraction; including Branson, MO; Eureka Springs, AR and Mystic Caverns. We stayed a week and had a great time. We'll be back for sure. We camped at Shady Oaks Campground & RV Park in a Motorhome.

A nice older park in a beautiful wooded setting. Like being in a state park campground, but with full hookups and room for larger RVs. There is a pool, unusual for a park this size. Owner is nice and helpful, showed us to our site and can answer questions about the area and what's going on. Location is outside Harrison but close enough to be convenient to stores or events. Off the major highways, it was very quiet at night. All sites are shaded. Forget your satellite but the cable is good. Verizon phone and internet worked here. We stayed a week and wished plans had allowed for longer. We camped at Shady Oaks Campground & RV Park in a Motorhome.

Some of the sites have tight access trying to navigate around the many trees. I managed on two tries to make the turn into the site. All roads and parking sites are gravel. The sewer connection was actually higher than the tank outlet, so dumping the tank was a bit of a problem. The 50 amp service had only 108 VAC on one leg so I had to use the 30 amp outlet. The owner is very nice and accommodating and offers a 15% discount for Veterans. Had to pay cash for a one night stay. Lots of bikers staying at the campground, but noise wasn't a problem.

We visited this campground while on vacation in Eureka Springs, AR. We knew we wanted to camp somewhere in Harrison and there aren't a lot of options in RV parks. We found Shady Oaks on the internet and it turned out to be one of the nicest of all available in the area. The owner, Terri Cochran, took time to chat with us and show us around. We liked what we saw. Plenty of room, lots of trees to provide shade, a pool, a pavilion, clean restrooms...a very nice set up. Several weeks later, we stayed for 3 nights. We didn't take advantage of the pool, but still enjoyed our stay. Lots of great road in the area for motorcycle riding, which is why we wanted to stay there. I would recommend Shady Oaks to anyone camping in the area. The other parks are more like a big parking lot. Thanks to Terri for keeping up such a nice place and making this an enjoyable stay!

Really love this place. It is secluded and the owners are great. We have stayed here a few times in the past and have enjoyed touring "Arkansas' Grand Canyon." Shady Oaks is a little rustic and that is just the type of campground we prefer. Very peaceful but not too far from town. We will be back. We camped at Shady Oaks Campground & RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed four days. From the area and now living in an RV, we needed a place to stay so that we could go to doctors and get scrips at the pharmacy. Our lot was not very level, the owner neglected to give us the access code for internet and even though we had her business and cell phones, she did not answer our call or return our call for that information. When we go back to the area again in August, we will not be staying here again. She would not honor our Passport America membership for more than one night in the off season (February).

This is a good campground with clean bathrooms and showers. The sites are on soft gravel and not very level. Also, the playground is a bit old and rickety and I had to really watch my little one, as it was a bit dangerous. We stayed here for one week and it was a good home base for exploring the Buffalo National River. We camped at Shady Oaks Campground & RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

What a wonderful park. Close to Buffalo River and Harrison. Owner was very friendly, fun and interested that the park is kept neat. Beautiful view. I would absolutely stay here again when in the area. We camped at Shady Oaks Campground & RV Park in a Motorhome.

Extremely friendly owner and host. They make you feel very welcome. Shady is the correct name. There are shade trees everywhere. Not a large park, but it accommodates large rigs. The restrooms and showers are very clean. There is a pool and playground for kids. Close to Harrison, Jasper, and the Buffalo River. We will go back several times to camp here.

This was a great park. We stayed here 2 months for work. The kids loved it. They went swimmimg everyday and were able to ride their bikes all around. The owner was very nice and the hosts were too. The park is very nice and clean. The cost was $325 a month. We camped at Shady Oaks Campground & RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is one of our favorite RV parks. We stay here at least once a year. The staff is great, the sites are good, the park is awesome. Our only concern is there are only a few sites large enough for 40 foot motorhomes like ours. Travel to Branson, Missouri is easy with excellent roads and a relatively short distance.

This is a shady park with lots of room between most of the sites. The sites and roads are all gravel and level for the most part. The laundry room has two washers and dryers that were reasonably priced. There is a very nice pool which we did not use but it is available. Don't know if campers are charged extra to use it or not. The owners live onsite and try very hard to make your stay pleasant. Owner is also a beautician, has a shop behind the office and gave me a great haircut. Pet friendly park. Many scenic drives and hiking trails nearby. We camped at Shady Oaks Campground & RV Park in a Motorhome.

This was a very nice park. Sites were gravel but they were level. Large oaks all over the park. The owner/park manager came out and welcomed us and helped us park. She checked with us through out our visit to make sure we were ok and to tell us about the town. Verizon cell phone and broadband card worked great. Nice laundry and pool. Very clean. Rec area for grownups and play area for kids. We will stay here again. We camped at Shady Oaks Campground & RV Park in a Motorhome.
