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.

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.

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.

Nice people run this place. RVs and trailers stacked in here like cord word. Location on creek is nice. Prices here higher than any other place we stayed. Owners live on site. We camped at Park Ridge RV Campground in a Motorhome.

The large trees were nice, but the dirt sites and roads were awful when it rained hard while we were staying there overnight. There is obviously no drainage. Additionally, the sewer drain was cracked and the water faucet was in a shallow well in the ground full of spider webs. We never saw anyone who worked there. The office was closed and dark when we arrived at about 2:30 in the afternoon. I stuck $30 in cash in an envelope and dropped it in the slot as the sign said. My wife checked out the showers and said "We' ll shower in the RV." There apparently was Wi-Fi available but you had to call a phone number to get it. That seems to imply that Wi-Fi was NOT free (most RV parks offer free Wi-Fi). In a pinch this park would be OK, but I would not come back here unless there was no other alternative. We camped at Park Ridge RV Campground in a Motorhome.

We did not stay here, but had 2 sets of friends that did on their way north after spending the winter in Texas. We visited them several times while they were there, and it seems there are new owners. Our friends said they were friendly and helpful. Cable TV, good wi-fi, and so on. The roads are dirt, and the sites are grassy with some dirt. We got 2 inches of the rain the other night, and the roads were not muddy when we went over after the rain, and it took the park about 3 hours for the water to drain off. It seems the new owners are working on getting the park in better shape. We camped at Park Ridge RV Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed here after it rained, and the park smelled of sewage. The laundry room was dirty; the lady in the office seemed abit rude. I won't stay again! We camped at Park Ridge RV Campground in a Motorhome.

We paid the Good Sam rate. The park is a study in contrasts. It boasts a beautiful location, good layout, and is well shaded by many large trees. The teenager who checked us in and took us to our site was pleasant and efficient. But there is a dark side. The Wi-Fi was free and functioned. The office porch is filthy, and the office is dark and smells. the laundry room is semi-clean at best, although the broken machines from 2 years ago have been replaced by functioning well-used ones. The pre-teen manager's son roars about the campground on a quad-runner, stirring up dust from the gravel roadway. Still, it is an acceptable place to overnight, or to base camp while touring Van Buren or Fort Smith. We camped at Park Ridge RV Campground in a Travel Trailer.

There is dirt everywhere. It is not a well kept campground. They also charged me for WIFI that would never connect. When I asked for a refund on the WIFI, I was told it was "part of the camping fee" and wouldn't refunded. That was an obvious lie. The book clearly states WIFI is extra. So I asked for someone to come and look at it. She said she would send her husband but he never showed up. There is no Guide for the cable TV. When I asked about the channels, I was told "you are on your own there because I don't have anything". Of course, I could have looked it up online if their WIFI worked. I would never recommend this campground to anyone. We camped at Park Ridge RV Campground in a Motorhome.

Very nice campground with lots of shade trees and large sites. Laundry is clean and reasonably priced. Quiet in the evenings even tho it is fairly close to I-40. Only negative is construction equipment sitting around grounds. We would stay here again. We camped at Park Ridge RV Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
