Site was a pull-through with a view of the river. Park is located between the two lighted bridges over the river and next to the walking bridge to the Clinton Library in the city. The lighting show is excellent! The sites are basically parking lot with hookups, but there is grass and picnic table all along the river and a pavilion for group events. The park is in a seedy part of the city, but it has a good security fence with a coded entry gate starting at 6 pm and city police patrols are frequent. This is a Little Rock city park. We camped at Downtown Riverside RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

This isn't a fancy park and the sites are sunny but the river is scenic with the city center just on the other side. The light show on the bridges is not to be missed. It is in a rather seedy part of town of mostly minority population. Diesel fuel was available at two nearby stations, but both of them were priced about the same as other areas for gasoline but $0.50/gallon more for diesel than at the Murphy Oil some 7 miles away. The park has a laundry and game room and seems to be very friendly.

I'm sure a last minute reservation didn't help matters, but it was a holiday weekend, thus the park was rather full. While I have no issue with back-in sites, I wasn't thrilled that I had to get within a foot of the rig behind me to get my 33' trailer out of the road. All of the sites are 50 amp and that's the only plug on the post, so have an adapter if you're not a 50 amp rig. The water pressure was good and for a park smack dab in the middle of town, it was rather quiet, all things considered. The park does sit right on the river across from the Clinton Presidential library. One of my only gripes was there was only two sewer drains between the four rigs where we were parked....even though there was four of everything else; thank goodness we had a tote for the gray water. It's not a bad place, maybe it's a lot better on non-holiday weekends. We camped at Downtown Riverside RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We didn't have another unit behind us in the pull-through. Power was good and water pressure good. 50 amp only at our site. If wishing to use Passport America, there are some steep restrictions. Only ONE shower stall for men and one for women. The location is on the river but no swimming. The bridge light show was good. No trees or grass, except for at the river bank. Staff was very helpful. Security was good. Because this CG is owned by the city, it is patrolled by NLRPD. Would return again. We camped at Downtown Riverside RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Clinton Library, downtown Little Rock. Be sure to get a day pass for the trolley, it is worth the $2.00. Also visit Rock Town Distillery tasting and tour for whiskey. Location is 1216 6th in Little Rock.

The only women's bathroom was large but unappealing. Toilet tissue had run out the second time I visited it and the trash can was overflowing.

The small gravel and dirt in the lot were a nuisance being tracked into our motor home.

Despite those facts, I really liked the park. It was great looking out my RV window and seeing the activity on the Arkansas River. It was convenient to many interesting sights in Little Rock. Particularly enjoyed the Saturday morning Farmers' Market and Esse purse museum with it's adjacent bakery featuring delicious pastries. We camped at Downtown Riverside RV Park in a Motorhome.

This park is pretty much a parking lot. Full hookups, except no cable. Wifi is the best we have had. It is located right on the Arkansas River and right across the foot bridge from the Clinton Presidential library. It is also right on the River Bike Path, which is a great bike path. Great location to visit Little Rock. Would definitely stay here. Price reflects Passport America rate. We camped at Downtown Riverside RV Park in a Motorhome.

Like others have said no frills. But if you are visiting Little Rock this is the place to stay. We were on site 7 which is a pull in for a motor home. The sites on either side were back ins for trailers so the hook ups were on the correct side. Great view of downtown Little Rock. Bridges are lighted at night. There is a foot bridge to the Clinton Library. The WiFi was very slow at peak times. We would stay here again. Easy to get in and out. Office is friendly.

Basically a parking lot, but with a pretty good view. Right on the banks of the Arkansas River, just upstream of the Clinton Bridge and facing downtown Little Rock. Access is via a relatively narrow opening in the seawall (good enough for two cars to pass, but we wouldn't want to try and pass another rig there) then across the boat landing parking lot to the campground. Single lane asphalt access road with packed gravel sites (mix of pullthrus, backins, and pullins). The riverside row is alternating pullins / backins with good space between sites on the patio side. Second row is alternating direction pull thrus while back row is alternating backins and pullins. Each pair of sites share utility pedestals. Grassy area with two or three trees (and the only shade) between the front row and riverbank is treated as a common area for all sites, but we never felt invaded by others. Campground is fenced and gated (one vehicle, two pedestrian gates - one of which provides direct access to the Clinton Bridge). Relatively quiet at night, but somewhat noisy during the day since I-30 crosses the river just upstream of the campground. Power, water, sewer ok, but sewer does not have threaded connections. Wifi had good signal strength and good to adequate data speed (they intentionally throttle video streaming). Verizon and Tmobile both had moderate signal strength and speed. Aluminum can recycle on site. Great access to the Arkansas River Trail for bike riding along both the south and north sides of the river. Loop of about 17 miles is possible by crossing on the Clinton Bridge and the Big Dam Bridge. North side of the trail is much more scenic; south side requires a good amount of street riding (due to bridge construction) and you can't see the river for about 5 miles. We will definitely stay here again. We camped at Downtown Riverside RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

The Clinton Bridge is lighted at night. Watch for the short light shows at the top of the hour. On weekends, Junction and Main Street bridges are also lighted and put on short light shows at the top of the hour.

WE stay here everytime we pass through LR. All utilities work fine. Very good wifi. We use the antenna for TV and get a wad of digital channels. Great views at night. A little hard to find if you have not been here before. We will always stay here. We camped at Downtown Riverside RV Park in a Motorhome.

In reviewing this park one has to take into consideration the purpose for visiting Little Rock. We wanted urban adventure and this park was great since we weren't toading. We specifically went to visit the Clinton Presidential Library and downtown Little Rock. There is something to be said for location! With this park all of the above are within walking distance. Literally the park is at the foot of the Clinton Presidential Bridge which is lit up every night with dancing lights. Quite the show over the mighty Mississippi River. We walked over the bridge (not handicap accessible) and visited the museum and the Anne Frank Tree (Google this project. Amazing and beautiful monument). From there we walked the Arkansas River Trail to the River Market District. There are several restaurants, another nature museum (free!) and a discovery museum aimed at children. The community obviously sees this as an area for families because it was bustling. Little Rock loves this green space and beautiful sculptures reflect a proud history. The Arkansas River Trail is a destination itself as it goes for 44 miles, all the way to Pinnacle Mountain State Park! Because of all of this I ranked this park high; it more than met our objectives. But, to be clear, it is really a large parking lot. There are full hookups with sewer, no cable but easy to get about fifteen channels. The riverfront lots are the only lots with grass and they are truly right on the water. We had a center pull thru facing the water and downtown. However, the person who came in next to us had to pull in the opposite direction due to the manner of the hookups; you share a pedestial and the water and sewer are opposite directions. There is no grass between the sites. We walked our Bichons along the river and in grassy areas towards the front where they even have pet waste stations, but there is not a designated fenced dog area. This one is about location, no frills. The wifi is good as well. You can't beat the price! We camped at Downtown Riverside RV Park in a Motorhome.

Only spent one night and had a fabulous view of the river and the city skyline, not bad to find off I40 and had no problems heading East on I40 again in the morning, I'd definitely use this again for an overnight or more! Sunny and open with gravel sites. We were only staying one night and chose this place because of the high ratings and feel that our decision was a good one! The evening view of the city was beautiful and a little romantic too! We camped at Downtown Riverside RV Park in a Motorhome.

Location, location, location and only $24 for pull thru FHU and 50Amp This is a nice campground even if it is a gravel car park. They have some nice long pull thru sites that allow big rigs to stay hooked up. They have 50 Amp FHU available. The park is clean and tidy with nice grass on the River front. ATT & Verizon work well. Plenty of clear sky for satellite set up. Restrooms are a single container cubicle, one for men and one for women but clean. No train and minimal Hwy noise. Free WiFi doesn't really work. Sites are the buddy style so not ideal. There is no dog run.
This was the first PPA park in 15 years I have not been able to use PPA as park full every night and only limited sites for PPA. So reserve early.
As others have said easy walk across the bridge to town, Watch the dancing bridge lights on the hour after dark. Watch for blue signs for directions to park. Will stay again. We camped at Downtown Riverside RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Must do. Just behind the Clinton Library is a Street Trolly stop and for 50 cents you can take a just short of an hour tour thru little Rock over the bridge to North Little Rock and back to the Library. Interesting tour and the conductor will point out places of interest. Well worth the hour and the 50 cents.

Location, location, location. If you want to visit Little Rock, this is the place. Right across the Arkansas River from the downtown area where there are all the sites. Large gravel parking lot with grass only near the river. Not much in the way of amenities. Friendly staff. WiFi was very good. View of the river and the bridges was nice. Price was excellent. Muddy after a rain. No picnic tables. We had a facing-river space on the middle row. We camped at Downtown Riverside RV Park in a Motorhome.

Take a walk across the bridge. It's worth it. If you go to the Quapaw Quarter to visit the old homes, do it on a bike. By car it's very difficult to navigate with the traffic. WalMart is only 5 miles away.

Bare bones park. Passport America rate only gets a back-in site. Hookups were reversed; was not told that when reservation was made. Sites super close together. Gravel with weeds at the back of the site. No cable, Wi-fi poor, no amenities. Only good thing was a view of the Arkansas river and right downtown. Would not stay here again.

Rain made for a lot of pooled water and mud throughout the campground especially at the entrance to the pedestrian bridge. A little more gravel may go a long way.
The location is outstanding, as others have noted. We walked across the bridge to the Clinton Museum and then to the River District. Lots of restaurants to choose from. We went to the Flying Saucer famous for their selections of beer.
There is also a bike and walking path along the river that goes for several miles.

Not a park for an extended stay. We camped at Downtown Riverside RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Take the Pedestrian Bridge across to the Clinton Museum and then to the River District, 2 blocks up. On a nice day, ride your bike or walk on the miles long trail along the river.
Plan your visit accordingly. Rain and extreme heat would make the park less pleasant
