We camped here on the way to Minnesota. It is a quiet area and the owners are very nice. Will stay there again on our way back home! We camped at Shadow Mountain RV Park & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Owners were working hard outside on property. They have WiFi, but not strong enough to stream video (Netflix) This was a quiet place to camp. Site was gravel with concrete pad and included a picnic table. We camped at Shadow Mountain RV Park & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We camped here for three weeks while working the Mena, Arkansas area. The staff led us right to our spot and filled out the paperwork as soon as we exited the RV. Our view placed the fishing pond in the foreground with the mountains as backdrop (#10). Cable and Wi-Fi worked flawlessly during our entire stay. Certainly, the aesthetics have seen better days, but the 'dated' nature didn't detract from our stay at all. Plenty of room to spread out between the neighbors, and each site has a picnic table. We frequently fished in the pond catching plenty of Bluegill (Brim here) and Largemouth Bass. On numerous occasions, deer playfully ran through our campsite on their way toward the pond.

We enjoyed our stay here, and would definitely return again. We camped at Shadow Mountain RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

Relatively level, tree-shaded FHU sites built across a fairly steep hillside that slopes away from the highway. The owner led us to our site on her golf cart and filled out the registration forms right at the site. But, be prepared, as they don't take credit cards, so we had to write a check for our two-night stay. Seems a little overpriced for the off-season in a town as small as Mena. But better here than nearly being blown off the top of the mountain at Queen Wilhelmina State Park like the last spring we camped in the Mena area! We camped at Shadow Mountain RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Very nice, beautiful pine trees, level gravel type site. WiFi and cable available and both operated well. There was plenty of space for slides and awning plus a picnic table. It is a wooded campsite not a resort so keep that in mind. I did not use the restrooms or showers so I cannot comment on them. Some noise from Hwy 71 but not bad. Especially nice was that even though it was raining when we pulled in the owner came out to greet us and escort us to our site. She then returned with the registration papers and a very nice (handmade by her) gift. All in all we were very happy. The only reason I gave it a 9 was because of the highway noise.

This campground is a little on the rustic side, but has very friendly owners. Full hook ups, with 50amps. Big rig access is marginal, pull throughs, the road is paved but the pad is gravel. Space around the RV with shade trees and picnic table. Small pool. The Wi-Fi is great but we could not get any cell service at our site. Its only seven miles to Mena with food shops, restaurants and sightseeing. The bathrooms and laundry are old but clean. There is a little road noise, but it did not bother us. This is fine for a one night stop over and we would stay here again if passing through the area. However, we did feel that it was overpriced for what it was. We camped at Shadow Mountain RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

For a one night stop over it is okay. Sort of old and run down, with nice folks running the place. Good TV and Internet service, good water and electric. Highway noise is mostly semi's jake brakes. Level sites but the ground around the site is very rocky and hilly and rather dirty. Price is too high for what they offer. We camped at Shadow Mountain RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

We really liked this park. It's a few miles out of Mena and just off Highway 71, but we noticed no road noise. We were able to choose our site, rather than have one arbitrarily assigned. The site was level, roomy and shady. Cable TV and Wi-Fi worked perfectly. The pool was nice and clean. The owner was very quick to respond when we thought we might have a low voltage issue affecting our air conditioners, it wasn't a voltage issue. Later her spouse came to our RV to see if we were still having problems. This is a very friendly place and we will stay here again when in the area.

We've stayed here overnight 3 times while traveling in the area. Nice park, friendly staff takes you to your site and guides you in. Sites are clean and mostly level, nice pull throughs. We will definitely stay here again when in the area. We camped at Shadow Mountain RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

The $33 price is for full hook-ups, 50 amp service, cable TV and an RV over 30 feet long. $22 is for water and electric only and RV under 30 feet long. The nice things about this former KOA park are the oak trees and the space between the sites. It is very "outdoorsy." We're 13 feet tall and had no problems with tree limbs. We had plenty of room for the awning and every site had a picnic table. Location is right off Hwy 71 and a short 6 mile drive to Mena, AR and the Talimena Scenic Drive up to Queen Wilhelmina State Park atop Rich Mountain. Sites and driveways are crushed shale gravel and sites are terraced and fairly level on a hill side. Wi-Fi signal was good with good fast response. Water pressure was 60 psi (use a regulator) and the 50 amp service was good. There are only a few sites with cable TV, which was excellent after I wiggled the connection. The cable connections are consolidated 4 at a service point so the distance can be a stretch, but no problem because the friendly hosts will provide cable long enough if you don't have it. Verizon cell service was "two bars." There was no service available on ATT, but Skype worked well. We would stay here again. We camped at Shadow Mountain RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

This is an ok campground, friendly staff, older and worn around the edges. Grass and gravel sites are fairly level. I had no service on my T-Mobile cellphone. We camped at Shadow Mountain RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

OK place. Present owners were in the process of selling. Work was needed all around the grounds. Would go back there again. We camped at Shadow Mountain RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
