10 Parks near Heth, Arkansas
Feb 2015 - $30.00
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

We love it here. I'd say our only complaint here is how poor the fishing is from the bank. No pier
.. and we dont gave a boat.
Otherwise... love it. - ASHLittle

Very nice park with nice campsites. Pads are concrete with asphalt drives. Some of the sites have very good shade. Pull-through sites are available. Very spacious sites and not at all crowded together. Lake access is provided with a swimming beach. We stayed in campground B area which was full hookups with 50 amp service. - Harleyjt1

As other reviewers have said, the park is several miles from commercial shopping and unless you have satellite TV, you are off the grid unless you travel to Forrest City (13 miles) or Wynne (about 7 miles). That said, it is located in the Crowley's Ridge area of Arkansas, a unique area that contrasts sharply with the surrounding delta farmland. Wildlife can be seen throughout the park. For golfers, there is a 27-hole course that is just as unique as the park is. Staff at both the park office and the golf pro shop were both friendly and helpful. - Lakewood90

This is an RV park not a campground. Thus, there are RV sites, not campsites. The sites are large concrete pads with FHU and cable TV. There is no internet service. - Jerry S
Nov 2015 - $20.00
Excellent campsites with paved pads, tables and grills. All are pull-through with water, sewer, and 50 amp power. The laundry is quite good and reasonably priced. As stated in previous reviews, call the hotel on the phone at the bath-house before pulling into a site. The very low cost makes this a nice place to stop for a while. We would definitely stay here again. - wandrr

Previous reviews have mentioned how to check in. We have been here numerous times over the decades. Our rate based on free nights from the casino. This park has FHU sites with large, level cement pads and patios. The cable TV is 70+ channels and most sites appear to be satellite friendly. There is no 802.11 network connection in the park - you may be able to get one in the hotel lobby. The bath and laundry facilities were dirty and inadequate for this park. For those of you with a certain perspective, there were some customers here you might classify as a potential threat to your safety. The sites are great, but the lack of a check in office and internet in the RV park and poor bath and laundry facilities lowers my rating substantially. As usual in the region, there was no recycling. - Jerry S

What a nice park! EXCELLENT and efficient service on check in. The weather was not good, so we couldn't explore like we wanted to, but we enjoyed the views of the river from the second row. Next time we stay here we will ask for a river site.
This place is huge and one thing I wish they had was a dog run, because they certainly have room for one. I really like when we get an escort to our site so we don't have to wander around looking for it. Water, sewer, electric all worked just fine. No electrical problems as someone else mentioned. Everything in our coach worked great.
Friendly guy who escorted us and picked up garbage at site. Getting in and out was fine and not too far from the Interstate. We will make this a definite stop anytime we head this way. - tb919

We only stayed overnight & were impressed by the friendliness and efficiency of the staff. Our receipt and papers were already filled out & waiting for me when we arrived and were escorted to our site. Second row but a good view of the river and barges. Only problem we had was electrical. I wanted a hot shower but with the 2 ACs on, the fridge, & the TV, the breaker switch popped when I turned on the hot water heater. The plug-in voltage reader was just barely in the green. N0 problems with tree limbs or bad roads as has been previously mentioned. Not an easy off and on but a good place to overnight if needed. Definitely would stay here again if in the area. - 1alfa

Very spacious, peaceful campground. Long road into the site. (A bit scary at night for 1st time visitors: very dark.) Once in the park, it is very spacious. We had a gravel site, but there were cement pads intermittent in the park. Pretty level.
The River is right there! We walked over in the morning and it was very peaceful. If it weren't for the A/C on the motorhomes right there, there would be no noise. Wildlife, birds, peaceful atmosphere. 3 sets of sites. We were in the set with very mature trees, well maintained, with river views. There was a loop out on the riverbank, but they did not have trees. Restrooms extremely clean and very nice. Great shower with nice water pressure. Only 2 of them in a loop, so we had to wait just a minute, but worth it. A/C in the restrooms. No amenities on site (no pool, etc.). Tons of mosquitos in the evening/night, which you would expect on the river. Coming from Disney, we forgot about them! Would recommend this RV park for the Memphis area. Very close to the city. There are not many to choose from, and we were very happy we found this one. - User3110

Again, this is an RV park not a campground. My review of last fall gives more information about the park. The sites have FHU but can have leveling issues and be tight if the park is crowded. For my third visit in a row, the park was only about 15% occupied. There is cable and unreliable internet. I still consider the check in at the hotel an unacceptable inconvenience. Not staffing the RV park is one reason the bathrooms and showers are not clean. - Jerry S

Stayed 5 days. Pool is available in the Hotel. Good golf next door - nice sites with plenty of room. - wchape

As the name states this is a casino RV park. No patio, picnic table, grill or place to relax outside your RV. It is a nice clean well maintained place to park your rig however. The property is manicured and pleasing to the eye. Let's face it; the owners want you to park and head to the casino We are not gamblers so the casino is of little attraction to us. But we did enjoy a few day to relaxing and shaking off some road rust. There is a very nice golf course next door and I recommend it. Interior roads are paved with nice concrete pads to park. All the utilities are in one location at the back of the parking pad. If like me, you may need extra sewer hose. And yes ..... you have to check in a the hotel. It's not a big deal. Times are tough in the casino business so the office at the RV park remains closed. - bamawig

Park CLOSED in June 2014. It is now overgrown and sits forlornly waiting for someone to resurrect it from the dead. Sad as we rated it a 10 last year. - RVInn

We have reservations for this park in June and just received a call from them that they are closing down in May as they say Harrah's Casino is closing for good. If you have reservations or plan to stay there, I suggest that you call and check to see how much longer they will be open. - Luvtheroad

Now this is what an RV Park should be. Spacious level sites with concrete pads, grass, picnic tables, "night" lights at all sites, and trash receptacle at each site emptied daily. Bathrooms and showers were spotless. The clubhouse was spacious, clean, and included pool table, coffee, vending, and television. Outdoor seasonal pool with covered patio and tables. Dedicated pet and children area, playground, and ball courts. Also, had an hourly shuttle to Harrah's casino. Gated entry added to the security. We stayed 4 nights, and ventured into Memphis (20+ miles) and Tunica area. Normal rate is $14 but we were comped our stay by Harrah's. Most of the sites were empty this time of year. Staff was extra friendly and helpful. Great stay. Would come back here any time. - MissMyGolden

As you drive into the RV park on the access road (kinda from the grocery store parking lot and behind the restaurant) you might wonder what you are getting into. But the park is a very nice place to stay, especially if your on the road. The park only has about 25 sites as of now but there are about 10 pull thru sites in the middle that can handle the biggest coach with tow attached. No showers or restroom but still a good value as full hookup and cable were very good. You do get some noise from the interstate but not unbearable. Level gravel site with nice grass between. - 1texan

Of all our years RVing, I don't think I have ever run across any park owner more involved and more caring than here. And it's always kept in pristine condition. We were here one time for several weeks, and my husband helped him out with some of his landscaping. This guy works hours and hours every day keeping this place immaculate; we are very impressed.
One of the cool things is if you call him and ask him if he has space, he will let you know. But then he will even put a cone on one of the lots for you to reserve it if it's filling up and you know for sure that your coming. Then he will send you a text with a great map and directions on how to get into the park. Don't tell him this, but he could charge way more than what he charges.
All of the sites are from what I can tell completely level. We have never had to do any leveling as many times as we have stayed here. Almost all of the sites are pull-through. E-Z Check In & Out because if he's not here, you can stop at the Ole SawMill Cafe when you arrive and check in there, or you can stop as you leave in the morning and pay up. The rate is $25 for 30 amp and $30 for 50 amps. It's a deal!
It is well lit at night, he has security cameras everywhere, and keeps an eye on the place via his mobile phone.
Enjoy! - ASHLittle

A simple overnighter stop. Far enough off I-40. Watch closely for the blue/white signs for the Colony Inn and the campground. Be prepared to turn right just past the Exxon. It will look like you are pulling into a Food Giant grocery store parking lot. Which you are. But keep looking to your right for the last blue/white sign which directs you to the campground. The owner is very concerned that you are taken care of. Nothing fancy but does the job. - CharlieB

Only stayed one night and it was raining so were not able to use the pool, but the park and grounds looked clean and well-tended. Office staff were very nice and helpful. Location convenient to I-40 (7 miles north), they offered BBQ for delivered dinner, breakfast in AM (didn't have either). Some slight distance train and highway noise but not enough to be really disturbing. Would recommend this KOA. - Ilene S

A very nice park. Lovely area with a lot of amenities. We pulled in late last night and it was very nice that they had a cafe when we were too tired to cook. The pizza was delicious. You can tell that the owners care a great deal about keeping this park looking great! - cmiller

We would rate this KOA best we'd ever stayed at if it weren't for the mosquitoes! They were huge and traveling in battalions! There was just no fighting them. We don't know if the park is always like that or just because they had recently had rain, but they were more than we could take. The KOA workers and service was great and we wish we could have stayed. - LittleChilds

Great place. The ranger office was closed, but a ranger nearby told us where to find the campground manager. We were allowed to check in early, and were offered other sites as there were openings and people had previously complained about the site we were assigned. Bathrooms, showers, laundry, an ice machine, and a playground. - charles_from812

Arrival: Approach from the north (most common) has many chuck-holes and RR tracks. The registration office is separate from the campground. The park itself has tight spots but is passable. Limited parking for rigs, but it is capable. They close at 4:30 PM so if you're late, you'll have to pull in and then go back in the morning.
Sites: Use caution with all the sites, especially the pull-thru's -- they are short. Don't expect to park more than your rig. Expect gravel sites and limited area. Water and electric on some sites are at the rear so front tanks require longer hoses.
Restrooms: Dirty. Open shower plan that only those that are brave enough to use. Trash and bugs prevail.
Cost: $28. 10% Good Sam's discount. Survivable for a short stay.
Local Area: Just outside Memphis. You'll have to drive through some very unsavory neighborhoods between all the attractions, but main roads seem safe enough.
Internet: None. Sketchy cell-coverage due to location and surrounding trees. Not sure about satellite, but there are no clear-view sites for your dish to have easy access.
Other: Bugs! Get used to it... it's the south. Between the bugs, the shrubs, and the location it just doesn't make a visitor want to visit again. Staff seemed to care less...about everything. Lots of "killer" dogs including the camp host that drives around in his Gator with a pit bull... that's comparatively well behaved. When we were there the numerous "killer" dogs of the other guests made us quite uneasy. Will not stay there again. - JC Penny

Park is spacious and well laid out. A lot of room between sights. Most sites are large enough to accommodate any size RV. Downside is the pervasive foul odor reminiscent of parking next to a feed lot or open sewer. Will not stay here again. - Bruce and Nena

We camped here because we couldn't find any campgrounds available. Didn't have reservations. Called at night, lady answered. Waited for us. Nice older lady trying to run park alone. She needs help. Didn't see anyone else there. Were a couple of autos next to older looking campers. Couldn't use bath house, really nasty. Also really close to highways. Didn't bother me, but my sister couldn't sleep. Did look like a bad neighborhood. A dilapidated/vacant motel or apartment bldg,right in front of campground . Sign said 'Good Sam'. But it isn't. On the bright side, the WiFi was EXCELLENT! Fastest I've ever encountered. Lady was real nice, friendly. - ParisMarie7

This is an older park but it was secure, the park no longer honors Good Sam nor do they take credit cards. But, the attendant was nice, showed us to our site, even offered to show us around town. Although close to the highway the noise wasn't too bad. The sites are level, 50 AMP service and for the price it's hard to beat. We would stay here again. These are nice people. - Jim Tadlock

This park has recovered from the flood. Extremely helpful owner and staff. Many concrete pads right on the Mississippi River where you can watch the barges travel by. Clean, Good 50 amp power and free Wi-Fi. Very convenient to downtown Memphis right across the I-40 bridge. This will be my choice for a campground in the Memphis area. - spitfirepete
