Another gorgeous COE RV Park. Roads are paved and easy to navigate with a big rig. Huge grassy sites with paved pads and parking space for towed vehicle. Crushed stone patio with picnic table, fire ring, and lantern stand. No problems getting level. Electric and water hookups. No individual sewer connections but dump station is available. Boat launch in the park. Clean rest rooms and showers. Park is well maintained. Quiet, friendly campers. There is an adjacent day use area with picnic tables, playgrounds, tennis, volleyball, walking paths, mountain bike and hiking trails, disk golf, picnic pavilions, soccer field. Park is on the Arkansas river at the dam and lock. Awesome. I have to say we did notice the factory "hum" a prior reviewer mentioned, but it wasn't enough to bother us. Also another reviewer mentioned ants. We had to watch out for ant hills while walking the dogs, but that seems to be the norm in this part of the country. No problems with ants at our site. Really enjoyed our stay here. We'll be back. We camped at Old Post Road COE in a Motorhome.

I took the comments about ants seriously and carefully looked around the rig after we parked. I saw a stream of black sugar ants but didn't see any that were approaching the rig, so I didn't spray around the tires. Wrong. Next stop - I found ants in the wet bay which I think I evicted. Would recommend an aggressive approach to protecting your rig if you stay here. Also - watch for fire ants when walking the dog. A double ant alert. The park itself is nice with mature large trees providing much welcome shade. The water in the river was down quite a bit so the scenic view was not quite as nice. However, there is a factory in the distance and there is a CONSTANT hum in the air. We were still using AC's so that masked the noise. It's not the park's fault, just saying it really detracts from the camping experience. The park gets good traffic and many sites were occupied, but I think I will pass on a return trip, especially if it was in the shoulder season where we like to sleep with open windows - the factory noise is annoying. We camped at Old Post Road COE in a Motorhome.

Easy back in site. Sites spaced well apart.Grass needed mowing and park could use dead branches (large to small) disposed of for a tidier appearance. Men's restroom lacked soap and was not as clean as would have liked. There is a loud hum from a plant at the boat launch end of the park. We needed to turn our fan on and keep windows closed all night to sleep well. We would try another park next visit to The area. We camped at Old Post Road COE in a Travel Trailer.

Beautiful, clean, and quiet park with a lovely view of the river. We found this park to be extremely well maintained. Our site was number 20 - at the end - and our view of the river was gorgeous out our back window. We had a huge area to walk the dog. We also had 11 OTA TV channels. Great Verizon.

Tips for other Campers:

We needed to call Happy Days RV Sales & Service. They came right to our camper the next morning, did two quick repairs, and only charged us $40. The technician was extremely knowledgeable and fast.

We did day trips to Petit Jean State Park, Nebo state park, Mount Magazine State Park and Dardanelle state park. Spectacular scenery.

The only thing keeping it from a 10 is the abscence of sewer but most COEs don't have them. The sites are level, easy to back into and the hosts were great. We pulled in without a reservation and they found a spot. They even went through their open spots to get the best fit for our rig. This place is drop dead gorgeous We camped at Old Post Road COE in a Fifth Wheel.

We have camped here a few times. Very quiet relaxing park on the bank of the Arkansas River. The sites are spacious and clean. The view of the river is somewhat obstructed by vegetation. The bank is rather steep and overgrown, so you can't walk down to the river from your site. There is a boat ramp at the end of the park. On the other end of the campground is the dam and public park (the road is blocked to prevent people from the park driving through the campground). There are barges that go by from time to time. We saw an eagle fly by. Peaceful, relaxing place. We camped at Old Post Road COE in a Motorhome.

Very large sites. Good shade. Restrooms and showers were very clean. One issue was ants. Everyone seemed to have them. I sprayed my area with Homeguard pesticide and helped a few others too. We camped at Old Post Road COE in a Truck Camper.

You can put your boat in the water, and fish. Walmart is near by, all kinds of food places to choose from. There is good RV repair place 1 and 1/2 miles from the park on State HWY 7. They worked on my motor home last year and they were very good and reasonable. Their labor rate was $75.00 an hour.

We have stayed at many COE parks around the country, and this park is one of the best. We were in site 16. The concrete pad was wide, long and level. The space between sites is very large. We had a covered picnic table. There were no issues with the 50 amp electric, or water connection. Water pressure was 60#. There were plenty of trees for shade, but they did block our rooftop dish. However, we had plenty of yard area to find a spot for our portable dish that did have a view to all the satellites. Even though this park is on the banks of the Arkansas river, we did not have a problem with mosquitos. The cell signal for AT&T was strong, as was the Verizon signal for our mifi. We were only here overnight, but wish we had booked it for a longer stay. We paid $10 with our senior access pass discount. We will return to this park the next time we are in the area. We camped at Old Post Road COE in a Motorhome.

Really like the area. Our picture window looked out on the river and dam. There were pelicans, sea gulls, and bald eagles in the river and I saw a deer herd and a red fox in the park. The camp sites are level and clean. If they had sewer hook ups it would be a 10. We camped at Old Post Road COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Check out the visitor center near the lock and dam. The best burger in town used to be Whattaburger but in my opinion has been bested by CJ's just north of I-40. Check out the state park (Dardenelle State Park) while there, the visitor center is interesting with natural displays and large aquariums with big fish.

We stayed one night and wished we could have stayed longer. GPS guided us right to the campground. The hosts were great and provided great area info for places to eat. The site was a nice back in right on the river, level with good services and with nice shade and good spacing between units. The facilities were spotless and everything was neat and tidy. There were deer right in the campground throughout our stay. A bonus was getting to see a tugboat and barges go through the locks on the river. The only drawback, if you can call it that, was a little bit of noise or audible hum from industry in the area but it didn't bother us. We camped at Old Post Road COE in a Fifth Wheel.

We really enjoyed this park. It was quiet and we had a view of the river to be able to see the barges go by. A great place to rest and relax. Be sure to visit Russellville and stop for lunch at Feltners Whatta-Burger. Easy access to the park and good roads within. There is water and electric at each site. No WiFi.
