Van Buren Arkansas Campgrounds
10 RV Parks near Van Buren, Arkansas
Aug 2016 - $27.00
Sites are gravel (very little in some sites) and are not level. Hookups are at back of site so we were unable to leave our tow vehicle hooked up. CG is very close to I-40 and there is a lot of noise. This CG is convenient for a 1 night stay but I would not like to be here for more than overnight. Tow vehicle had to be parked in front of our motor home. - Grammy8

We stayed here on our way home. The lots are angled, making it easy for us to get into. There was quite a bit of highway noise. The lots are long and they have Wi-Fi, but it was spotty. The bathrooms were tidy, and we had phone service. We enjoyed our stay, but we will probably find one a little further from the highway to avoid the noise next time. - lougreene67

This is a nice campground. 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 older but clean and tidy. Roads and pads are gravel with grass but very narrow spaces. ATT & Verizon work well. Plenty of clear sky for satellite set up. Restrooms are three unisex cubicle and are clean. No train but some Hwy noise. Free WiFi works well. Park was full as only two sites available when we arrived at 1PM and some later arrivals were turned away. Many extended stay which looked like local workers. The park was tidy and quiet. Fast foods, restaurants and Walmart nearby.
Will stay again. - TedandJan

There had been some rain and the park roads and sites were very muddy. We made reservation and arrived early afternoon. No one was in the office (no one was ever in the office), we called and the lady/owner told us to pick an empty spot, she later told us we picked the wrong spot. When paying, we asked for Good Sam discount. She said we had to have the card as the number was incorrect. We printed a temp card for her (the # was correct). We were over charged $50, when we asked about the charge, she said we would need to prove it. We printed a copy of our statement, and the money was credited back. The lady was extremely rude and hateful. Her husband was pleasant. Not worth the aggravation, stay somewhere else. - mfcros

Cute park, very nice owner. Lots of trees, may not get satellite in the summer when trees are full. Lots, LOTS of pecan trees, pick them off the ground to eat! - laurly

Good place for stop-over stay. Easy in & out. Large pull-through. Level gravel sites. Full hookups, 50 amp. Lots of trees, trimmed well above rigs. Near river but not a part of river you'd want to swim in! Cable. Probably would be quiet it it wasn't cicada season. Staff (owner?) very friendly and helpful. Some long-term residents. Would stay here again. - DrM Traveler

This park is a gravel parking lot with very tight spots. The basic rate is $25 but for 50 Amps, the rate is $27. The 50 amp breaker continually tripped in site 30. Management knew it but would not fix it. I was stuck here for four days while the temperature climbed to nearly 100 degrees in my RV. Do not rely on the attached RV dealership. They did repairs on my 5th wheel hitch and the new parts fell out while I was driving to get fuel. I got back to the park and could not hook up to the 5th wheel pin. I won't be back. - KD7UCH

This is a fairly clean park with continuous distant traffic noise and some train noise.
Sites are dirt and gravel, narrow, mostly not level, in various lengths, without shade. Not all sites have sewer connections, 50 amps, or cable. Voltage is good.
Roads are dirt and gravel, in good condition.
Staff and hosts are friendly and helpful, but can be hard to find.
WiFi is strong. One afternoon I measured 653.6 kB/s down; by evening it was very slow.
Verizon LTE works well.
Showers are clean but lack privacy.
Laundry: 2 top-loaders ($1.25), 2 dryers ($1 for 46 min).
Rate is total with Good Sam. - wjzcbn

As stated by others, this is really a parking lot for the RV servicing & sales company. It is okay for an over night stay. Others have stated their site was level. Number 25 was not. Big rigs beware. I witnessed a rather large fifth wheel nearly slip into the creek that runs threw the camp grounds. The wheels dipped into a wash that had cut into the gravel roadway. Our entrance door was just 5 feet from our neighbor's full hook up drop. We were 7 feet from his unit. Staff personnel were nice and helpful. The park is pet friendly. Many "sites" appeared to be homesteading or had just dropped as a storage place. Value wise, at $25, was acceptable for clean bathroom and showers. - Laptop Willie

Springhill is another well designed COE park. Campground roads were worn, but in good repair. Interior roads were easy to navigate. Sites were not all level, but we were able to level easily. Many sites were directly along a creek which feeds into the Arkansas River with great views. Some things showed wear, including the picnic table on our site. Fishing and mountain biking are popular in this park. - NJTroy

What a little gem of a place. Am afraid to write a good review because that will send folks here. Loop A has nice river views and quiet. Only 30 amps on this loop. Loop B is nice but the spaces look very uneven and some looked unusable. When making reservations be sure to check that the site has water some do not. Close to Ft Smith. - Sharpe7tex

When booking this site I was mainly looking for value and didn't expect much for just $9.00 but were we ever surprised! I had chosen a spot that backed up to the water and the site and park are beautiful! Couldn't have asked for more. Even if we had to pay the full rate of $18.00 it would have been a good value. I just wish I could have given the park a 10 rating but it does not have sewer.
Also the park is close to Ft. Smith to go into town to tour the old fort. Very interesting and worth the time. - Rick & Karen

This campground is easy to find, just follow the Garmin. Check-in was quick and easy. Staff was friendly and helpful. Interior roads are paved, but narrow. Our site was long, but narrow and not very level. Sites are also kind of close. Full hookups worked as expected. WIFI worked well. Verison had four bars. OTA TV worked great. This is a great place for pets, lots of dog walking room. This is an older campground with a few extended stay guests at the upper end. It's also a really pretty park with lots of grass and mature trees. This is a decent place to camp, but we probably wouldn't stay here again. - Hurqleez

The campground was not terrible if it was operated better. The bathrooms were updated and clean. The pool was not so much. It was swim-able but with bugs in it. The older man who checked us in was, in a word, crotchety. I asked what time the pool closed and he said "you can do what you want, you can drown, you can catch a cold, I don't care. I am leaving." I had no response. If pressed I would stay here again for a short amount of time but hope I am not pressed. - MandM12550

Good Place to over nite or spend a few days in the area. 3 miles off of I-40 easy access. It is an old KOA but is in excellent condition with paved roads and gravel pads that are mostly level. - Danny285

Truck problems forced us to visit this RV Park. It is located in a portion of Fort Chaffee military base that was sold/gifted to the city of Fort Smith. The town is a ghost town except for a few workers here or there. The park has lots of very nice RVs; figure most are long term visitors working in the area. Only two spots were available. Price is reflects 50amp FHU, cable (only worked one of two days) and internet. Spacing was acceptable. Spot was the most unlevel spot we've encountered in 2 yrs of traveling full time and was used as someone's ash tray. Connections are at the back of the spot. - MichelleKry

This is a small Military RV Park but very well maintained. We stayed 2 nights here and we will definitely be back. Everyone there was really nice. Interior roads were weathered and a little tight for my rig but it was easy to navigate. - Keith Goins

Midpoint stop for the night. Reserved site was marked. Spacious sites with a small pond down the hill. We pulled in late and left early. The campground entrance is not clearly marked at night. - Rivercityjeff

What a gem! There's not many things to see in the area but this is that get-away-from-it-all kind of place. If you want a campground that feels like it's out in the wilds, stay here. The campsites were fairly level even though they were spread out on a hill overlooking a small pond and the post. They were spacious with lots of grass and trees. The hookups included 50 & 30 amp, water, and sewer and worked perfectly. There were laundry machines available at no cost. Soldiers were fishing in the pond. The only downside to this place was NO wifi. This is the only military installation I have ever stayed at that did not play the National Anthem in its daily ensemble of songs piped over the speaker system at 0600, 1700, and 2200 hours. - Melodycthomas

This is a very quiet park behind the golf course that is not easy to find. We were visiting family that live on the golf course so it was very convenient. Water pressure is good, 50 amp hook-up works fine and the grounds are well kept as you might expect at a golf course. I don't think that this park gets much use and we were the only RV there. It is mainly for golfers but they seemed happy to have us. We will certainly be back when we are in the area. We have a 40 foot 5th wheel. - KD7UCH

Eagle Crest RV campground and golf course was most unusual . You find the RV park by driving through a residential area and into the golf course parking lot. The RV ( 18 ) sites are down the hill and past/behind the gold cart storage building. The park is a tall grass field with some small patios and offers FHU. It was basically deserted ( one other coach ) when we arrived. There are no trees for shade, no tables, no wi-fi, no fire pits and no showers so you better be self contained. It offers highway noise throughout the night. They say they have a host, but he lives on the golf course – not at the campground. He was good to come down and introduce himself and offer assistance. We came here to take advantage of the golf special, but upon arriving, we learned of a tournament, and our promised two rounds of golf might not be possible. I think that the golf professional knew that when he took our call, but he still said come on to the campground. The course wanders through a residential neighborhood and looks fine. I didn’t get to play it because of the tournament. Our below rating covers only the campground. The overall rating might have been higher if I could have gotten on the course. We’re pretty sure we would not consider this facility for a future stop. - 5thwheeler

Beautiful state park. Well-maintained and very clean. We hiked along the trail to see the frozen waterfall, but couldn't get down to the water via the trail. Nice view, although the trees mostly block the lake view. Very quiet. The Visitor's Center is state of the art. We would stay here again. - RVerFamily

This is one of the nicest RV parks you will find. First of all I had a paved back in site that was dead on level. Which was nice seeing, how my hydraulic leveling jacks would not work when we arrived. Also every side has a level tent pad and picnic table with fire ring and grill, all very level even though the whole campground is very hilly. Nice hiking trails. You will love this place. - TazTech

The scenery is stunning and the park is very clean. The spaces on one loop are very close together and afford very little privacy. Some of the facilities were unavailable to campers, but their use was allowed for "private guests" by the Park Ranger.
The sites with 50 amps are lovely- lush and private, nestled in the trees. The 30 amp ones are like a cross between a Wal-Mart parking lot and an apartment complex where you bring your own home. - SouthernBubbe

The facility was very clean and very ample for the vehicle and tow vehicle. There was a large concrete pad, water, sewer, and electric. The park however was in a black hole and about 15 miles from the interstate on a double lane road that was quite tight. No wifi and cell provided for some issues but the stay was cozy. - Sean_Michelle

We stayed 3 nights and I was looking forward to Devil's Den based on a neighbor's previous stay. The visitors center parking lot is small so I would suggest dropping off a large camper before checking in. When we arrived at our site, it was fairly short and I could not park my truck with the camper. We enjoyed and hiked on a few of the trails but I was a bit set back by some general lack of up keep of the place. The laundry room A/C was broken, no sidewalk at the entire complex looked like it had ever been cleaned, screws were sticking up on walking bridges, the water upstream of the dam was shallow and stagnant, siding was rotting off some of the buildings, etc... The state is adding some new cabins and remodeling the store/cafe (closed since a 2015 fire) but the rest of the facility could really use some attention to make this a place I would visit again. - Iraqvet05

The site was level side to side. It was a bit tight backing in with a tree on one side and the identification post on the other. If you go here, contact them ahead of time and park first if possible. The area around the visitors center is extremely tight. I could not have gotten my truck and trailer in and out of the parking lot. - BaldGuy
