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.

Mostly long-termers, dirt/gravel sites. Helter skelter sites. Small place. Bathrooms dated and few for number of people. We camped at Park Ridge RV Campground in a Truck Camper.

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.

Tips for other Campers:

If you aren't into WalMart for groceries, try CV's Family Foods. Good selection and reasonabe prices.

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.

Tips for other Campers:

Go to Forts Smith and Historic Van Buren.

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.

This is a nice campground. Not many amenities. The roads are dirt, the WiFi is very good, and the cable is great. Plenty of shade. It is an easy off and on I 40. We would stay here again. We camped at Park Ridge RV Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a nice small older park on a creek. Pull-thru's are adequately long and reasonably wide. Easy access from I-40, but far enough away for the noise to be slight. Very quiet at night. Power, cable, and Wi-Fi were good. There was a small inexpensive laundry and a rustic but clean bathhouse. Sites could have used some more gravel and there was a lot of standing water after rain, but as there had been quite a lot of rain in the past few days this might not be the usual situation. Our site was very level. Turns are a little tight for big rigs but quite doable. The entrance driveway had some potholes. About two miles from Walmart and other shopping/restaurants. There were quite a few of what looked like seasonals or permanents. The owners are very friendly. We camped at Park Ridge RV Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We were here for 3 months. Compared to the other parks in the area this was the best choice. It is $325 a month for rent, $30 for internet and $37.5 for cable TV which worked out to $392.50. There are a lot of trees for shade in the summer and it is on Lee Creek. Of course the trees deposit sap on your rig if you are here long term. They are pecan trees so you hear them fall on the roof but you can harvest them. Lots of friendly long term residents in the back by the road. The owners are on site but not always available. There is a campground dog Snoopy that is friendly and someone dumped a dog off while we there for the long term residents to fed that was friendly. We acquired a kitten while there as someone dumped it. The wifi worked good and the only TV is off the cable which is included in the nightly rate. When in the area I would stay here again. We camped at Park Ridge RV Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Rate reflects Good Sam discount on weekly rate. Heavy tree cover makes satellite TV difficult/impossible but they do have good free CATV with 52+ channel. Advertised free WIFI was not accessible from our site in the second row from the office. There are many quite permanent residents here with lots of "stuff" under and around the RVs, and one even has a very permanent looking wood fence!! Dogs must be leashed and picked up after but the friendly campground dog Snoopy runs free and does his business where he pleases. If you can deal with the rough edges, this is a fairly pleasant place to stay. We camped at Park Ridge RV Campground in a Motorhome.
