What has been said by other reviews are essentially correct. Great staff/owners who are really trying hard and working currently to make improvements. Specifically, the restrooms/laundry (currently under construction). If you are self contained, this park is fine but I have to agree a little over priced for what they are currently. I would still recommend the park in an effort to help the owners/staff get the work done that is needed to justify the price. It was a very quite park with nice fulltime residents scattered about. Nice river view and our space was fine. Some spaces are a little close to each other, while some are not. I say support this park in hopes of helping them complete their improvements. We camped at Park Ridge RV Campground in a Motorhome.

We dd an overnight here while traveling I40. They just had a severe storm earlier in the night so there was debris everywhere. The staff was friendly and accommodating. The sites were VERY close but since it was just a place to stop for the night so it was fine. We camped at Park Ridge RV Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed here for one night while traveling through the area. The staff member we spoke with was very friendly and gave us a spot that was large enough for our camper and our extra vehicle. Our site was mostly level. The bathhouse, however, and the area surrounding it, were terrible. The shower stalls were filthy, as were the toilet stalls. The door did not latch on the stall, and there were more than a few bugs. The wall separating the shower stalls was partially rotted and moved when you leaned against it. There were used band-aids on the floor, and a LOT of dirt. The men's bathroom was in similar shape and reeked of urine. There was no mirror at all in the men's room. The area outside of the bathhouse was covered with tools and cigarette butts and other small bits of trash. This was probably the worst bathhouse we have ever seen, especially for the price, which was among the most expensive of our cross-country trip. I feel bad about writing this in my review because the staff was so very nice, but unless you are completely self-contained and are sure you won't need to use the bathhouse, avoid this campground. We camped at Park Ridge RV Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

The sites have lots of nice shade. Only went to the restroom once. One toilet was stopped up and the other was out of toilet paper. The laundry room was absolutely filthy. Dryer lint was all over the floor and the trash can was overflowing. The dryers had dust and dirt on the outside. There were three washers. Two of the washers "cold" wash cycle poured in "HOT" water instead of cold. I caught one of the washers, but the other was not caught in time and the dark clothes washed in extremely hot water which messed up some of the clothes. Our site was close to the restroom and there was lots of junk and tools laying around. We camped at Park Ridge RV Campground in a Motorhome.

The first two rows of the park are a facade! They keep them empty for overnighters, clubs, etc. The bathrooms were out of order. The "playground" listed on the website was nothing more than a swingset set up by a lot of equipment such as backhoes, etc. The dock is rotted and unsafe. The "propane station" you see on the website does not exist. We were without cable for 2 weeks yet we were still charged for it. The internet is shotty at best. Some of the sewer caps were missing and when it rained, the ditch in front of our spot became quite nasty. When Van Buren received a big rain this past weekend we had to do an emergency evacuation! We moved up to another RV park and love it! Most of our neighbors from ParkRidge are staying up here as well. We camped at Park Ridge RV Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Popped in late w/out reservation just for the night and was pleasantly received by owner and son who actually led us out to site. Super nice people, very friendly. Pull thru was pretty flat albeit a little muddy from all the previous rain, but the park IS right on the creek, so I wouldn't expect it to be too dry anyway. Park was wooded and tree covered - lots of squirrels, cats and friendly people. Some grassy areas to walk pups too. Relatively quiet for just that night. Just what we needed. We camped at Park Ridge RV Campground in a Travel Trailer.

The park is a bit older but has been reasonably well maintained. The staff are friendly and helpful. The park is close to shopping and dining. The camp roads are easy to navigate. Due to the canopy of trees, satellite TV is problematic (you may only be able to receive partial or no signal). Water pressure is fairly low - you may need your RV water pump to augment the water flow. Overall, the park is a great place to stay (we were there for 3 weeks visiting relatives). We camped at Park Ridge RV Campground in a Motorhome.

Given the crowd, this is a popular park, so make a reservation. Heavily wooded and hard to get a satellite signal. Some permanent residents. Friendly and helpful staff. We camped at Park Ridge RV Campground in a Motorhome.

We have stayed here before and it is a nice park. Thing is I justb saw on the news it is flooded due to Lee Creek flooding from all the rain we have. It will probably be a while before it is usable. So sad as the is the best RV oark in the Fort Smith Van Buren area, We camped at Park Ridge RV Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Convenient to Fort Smith. Campground has a LOT of full timers and their attendant household accumulations placed outside their trailers and motorhomes. Roads and sites are dirt. Sites are mostly shaded and level. Strong Verizon signal. Okay for a short stopover. We camped at Park Ridge RV Campground in a Motorhome.

We pulled in for the night on our way to Memphis. Tight entryway. No one was in the office at 2 p.m. and no registration packets waiting for you. Just a note saying fill out the form and find a spot. Roads were very muddy from earlier rain and a little tight for big rigs. Sites were not well marked and were dirt. Water connection was below ground in a valve box under six inches of water. Restrooms were old but clean. Would not stay here again. We camped at Park Ridge RV Campground in a Motorhome.

On the plus side, the electricity, digital cable channels and Wi-Fi worked well. On the minus side, the analog cable channels were snowy, the roads were muddy, and the last two rows of permanent residents looked like a third world country. This is an OK park for overnight but I would not stay here any longer. We camped at Park Ridge RV Campground in a Motorhome.
