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

Camped there years ago. Has been updated and improved campsites. Great park away from it all. Terrific people at the visitor center. Miles of trails to hike. Mountain bike and horse trails, too. It is not too far off I-40. - firerescue712

Positive: We visited this awesome park because of the previous reviews. They are very right, this park is awesome and well worth the 20 minutes off the main highway. The park and bath facilities are very well maintained and the bath facilities did have climate control. The staff is extremely courteous and so were the rangers. Awesome trails and not to far from wynne or forest city.
Negative: There are about two spots on the campground that if you hold your phone just right and the moons align, you can get AT&T cell signal. We are really dependent on cell service and we saw "no service" the whole time there. We had to drive 2 miles outside the park to get cell service. Staff claims Verizon service may be stronger there.
Will we stay there again?....good question. We have to be prepared to be detached from civilization completely. - DuranDDuran1

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

As usual, we had a large, FHU site with a long, cement pad and patio. There is grass between the sites. The 50+ channel cable TV was OK but there is no internet in the park. You can get Wi-Fi in the hotel lobby. We did have a major issue with the utilities. An hour after hooking up, the grassy area between our site and the site on the passenger side of the RV was flooding. Nothing (hose, faucet, water inlet) seemed to be leaking, so the leak must have been something underground. Because they no longer have an office in the RV park, I had to call the hotel front desk and wait an hour for the maintenance person to show up. We had to pack everything up and change sites. The maintenance worker was told by the front desk that we couldn't get any of our nightly fee back but we could get a free breakfast buffet the next morning. The individual bathrooms are in two sets of disguised trailers and the floors tend to get slightly flooded after someone showers. The last time I checked, the 4 machine laundry in a smaller trailer between the bathroom trailers did not have hot water. For the cost, this is an OK park for an overnight en route, but it lacks the facilities and amenities for a longer stay. - Jerry S

Nice RV park with paved main roads with wide concrete site pads with patio, table and grass yards. Separate RV area away from Casino and parking lot. Full hook ups, located mid-site. No trees for good satellite signal, no wi fi but free cable tv. 5 bars and 4G Verizon signal. No pool, rec center or playground. 15 miles to Memphis.
Pull in past the casino and stop at RV park and use direct phone to front desk for registration. Good place for a base to explore area and Memphis. Roving security patrols. Would stay there again. Very long back in and pull thru sites. No discounts. - Pepper Dan

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

The drive into the park is through an industrial part of West Memphis, but once you drive over the levee and into the wooded park, it is another world. You are right on the bank of the Mississippi. There are 3 parking areas; two along the river out in the open and a third set back in the trees. We stayed in the trees for the cool shade with full hookups and it was a little quieter since the tug boats on the river can be a bit noisy. Our only complaint was that most of the interior roads are gravel and can get a bit dusty. We ended up staying 3 days and visiting Beale Street and Graceland. We would definitely go back when in the Memphis area. - pklhead2

Price reflects back row in the woods farthest away from the river. Easy access from I40 and I55. Neat to see tug boats and barges go up and down the river. No cable but decent OTA. Okay Verizon signal. Some sites have concrete pads while others are gravel. - Bobco
Oct 2016 - $40.00
Our first time here - have tried to visit previously but flooding along the Mississippi caused us to change our plans.
This park is right on the bank and the front rows offer excellent views of the river traffic. It was a little scary following the road over the levee to the campground - it was in very rough condition. But once in the campground the roads were fine and very easy to navigate.
We would definitely come here again! - MerBee

We wanted to spend some time in Clarksdale but this was the closest acceptable RV Park. It's about a 50 minute drive to Ground Zero Club.
The spaces are very tight and the area is lit up like a football field at night. We were there on a weekend with a car show across the street at Sam's so there was quite a party going on in the RV Park. Still, a good value with access to the hotel facilities, pool, etc. The shower/laundry was spotless-very nice showers-and the grounds were spotless. I only gave the "service" 3 stars since check-in is at the hotel desk and a challenge as far as maneuvering. Drive around the back of the hotel and park in the casino Iot. I suggest picking an unoccupied spot before you check in since the hotel staff doesn't seem to know how long the spaces are. - J & J

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

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

Exceptionally nice little park once you get by the café and dirt entrance. When I told him one reason I came was the $25.00 for an overnight noted by others here, he stated that it would be $30.00 for a 50 amp hook up. Since it was 90 degrees outside, I agreed to pay the extra. It would be nice to have pricing on his website. He fills up almost every night and when called for a reservation, he saved a site. Call in advance if you want to stay here. - Eagle06

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

I'm not at all sure why this KOA only rates a 7. It's one of the better parks I've utilized on this cross-country journey. It is clean, well treed with amply spaced and adequate length individual sites. The hosts were friendly and helpful. The BBQ was good (although the portions for the sides were more than a bit small). Wi-Fi signal is strong with fast internet access. Even in the prime evening hours access to Google Maps was quick. I was able to view a couple of Youtube videos also. Gnats were a distraction in the evening. There are rice fields nearby that can harbor mosquitoes, but the park has a great many Purple Martin nest boxes to help combat these pests. The park is a reasonable distance from the various attractions in Memphis itself and there is a shuttle bus service available for those that do not wish to drive their own vehicle. The park is a good overnight stop and/or a place to stay for a few days while enjoying the areas attractions. - Retired-n-Roamin

This is a very nice campground. There is lots of well kept grass, mature trees, and sizeable level sites. It is an easy drive to downtown Memphis. The office staff was very nice and helpful. The only downside is the truck noise from the close highway and the train whistles from the nearby tracks. We kept the air-conditioners on at night so they didn't impact our sleep. We would definitely return here. - Dapper

The park advertised free cable TV. I stopped as I wanted to watch the football game. The cable TV channels were limited, quality was good, but they did not have the channel for the game. Was escorted to my site by park personnel. Site was clean, table, but no fire ring. Was not a good value for the nightly fee charged of $47.00. Food service is available for evening meal and breakfast. - Sunchaser v

This State Park was OK with exception of the site assigned to us was very rough and not level. We did move after getting permission but since the park was only 25% full we felt they could have put us in a decent site to start with. The bathrooms and showers were not good and this is probably due to not being kept up but also a real lack of attention by the camp host. We would think twice about staying there again. - Stan from idaho

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

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
