7 Parks near Walnut Ridge, Arkansas

As previous evaluations have stated, this is a good place for an overnight stop. The park is run down and had a neglected look to it. The sign advising campers of rules and rates is out of date and needs repair. All hookups worked fine and the wifi was excellent. Most sites were taken by permanent residents. We had to take a site next to the highway where traffic was constant. It was very noisy. - Melodycthomas

A recent detour on our way to South Dakota brought us to the attention of this small RV Park. The owner and manager were extremely hospitable. While mostly a self service park - perfect for overnight guests - we planned a much longer stay. Many of the park residents appear to be of the permanent variety, but most appeared friendly. Clean showers, rest rooms and laundry facility exist, but with heavy rains, the gravel sites and roadways transform into rivers and lakes.
A generous cable lineup along with more than adequate Wi-Fi round out the few amenities, but overall, you really can't beat the price for a monthly stay ($360).
Should fate ever again send us a detour this way, we'd certainly stay here again. - Todd and Heather

Called in advance and guy was nice and said he had one pull-through for travelers but would not be on site. Snow was on ground but warm-up was in progress; got stuck a little but cable and Wi-Fi were great. Self pay; rate is for 50 amp service; didn't wander out due to snow and melting. Suggest owner invest in a snow plow. Most people are permanents. Would stay here again. - dirtfan1946

Very nice greeting from lady at office. I prepaid for one night and was told which one it was beforehand. There are maps on the website so you can see where you will be. There are more pull thru's now--probably around 5 with 50 amp--so I got one of those. Depending on where your utilities are located, it might require longer hoses. Sites are hard surface and level, with picnic tables and fire rings. My 32' plus toad was accommodated OK, but I think a bigger rig plus toad might be a bit snug. Just electric and water with dump station at entrance. Interesting historical site and information to walk around. Very clean restrooms (2 showers, 3 toilets), and I was only 1 of 3 people there that evening. - cinharover

My wife found this park and was interested in the Old Davidsonville town site location. Since it was on our way to a rally, I called to make reservations and felt that the person I talked to was excited that I wanted to stay here. This park is a pure gem! The park is well kept, sites very level, lots of trees (I don't care about satellite reception). Of the twenty four RV sites, the first night there were only three campers, last night only us. The park is in the northwest corner of Arkansas, so I guess its mostly locals that use it, but it works for us. There is a nice small lake, level hiking trails, river access, and of course, the site of Old Davidsonville. Garbage bins are handy, picnic tables and grills at each site, and a porch swing donated by a local Good Sam chapter in 1992 sitting in the middle of the camping loop. Downside - there is only 1 50A space (we have it), but power is clean and consistent. Water has good pressure. I would stay here again, if in the area. - kco

Stayed here first time, great park. Several areas, we chose the area with sewer. With our discount, $24 for weekends, $16 for weekdays. Other areas cheaper with water/elec. Our site was perfect, lakeview, and lakeside sites are wonderful with big picnic patios. Good trails, good sites, easy access. Fishing was good. Space between sites was good. - Damon-Becky

This heavily forested park is reached by a five mile drive along the Black River in the Ozarks. There is no parking at the entrance check-in for large rigs, well anything over ten feet and/or pulling a trailer. The staff are friendly and helpful. The park is well maintained and all sites look easy to get in to. Our site was 99% level, spacious with best views. - MyVoice

We've stayed here three times and although it's a pretty campground, getting there is challenging. The road from Black Rock to Powhaten and then on to the park is narrow, winding and rough. The roads within the park are also fairly narrow. The sites are well spaced and most are long enough for almost any rig. The concrete pads are in rough condition and few of them are very level but each site has a fire ring, table and grill. Our surge protector system disconnected us a couple of times, first time in a long time, so their 50 amp service in the site (#81) we were in had a problem. The views from the sites in the E loop of the lake are great and I'm sure this is a nice place to be in the summer. - PegL

Most sites are fairly level, some might require a bit of leveling. Bathroom very clean. Sites are reasonably close to one another, even though the park itself is quite large. Several nice hiking trails. - HercMaster

Great one night stopover. Lots of amenities for a family, including a swim area and playground. Group sites for large gatherings available.
History buffs will enjoy the history behind the park. It was a CCC project with a vision.
Park staff very friendly. - pennyp

I took the camper for the post-winter trip to this park and was pleasantly surprised. There are plenty of spots, with enough space between yourself and your neighbor. All the parking spots were equipped with water and 30amp service. I would caution that not all sites are level, some with some major dips, and uneven surfaces. You should call the office and check which one would work best for your length of trailer. There are plenty of walking trails nearby and a swim lake is also inside the park.
One word of caution, cell phone service is about nil in the park, I found this out and actually moved sites to get better reception (only 2 bars!) to stay in touch with the outside world! There was a problem with the water at my site, and the park superintendent came by and made it right. Very impressed with the service. - mghurle

1 overnight stay. 1 back-in 50 A site left & we got it. Our site was on the outside edge of the park next to single wide mobile homes. Neighbors were friendly and helpful....offered a flashlight for our hooking up at dusk.
This park is in need of lawn/tree maintenance.
Gravel site, level enough with the levelers making it right. FHU. Cable did not work.
Mostly a long term CG/mobile home park. The owners daughter was on duty and was very helpful and accommodating. This was a pleasant experience and we would stay again if in the area.
Very easy access from/to the interstate. - D Curf

We have been staying here monthly. The park is quiet and convenient. The owner is on site every day and keeps the park clean and neat. It is great for what it is, a place to park while visiting Jonesboro. - Bruce and Janette

This is a nice little park. Owner was very nice. Large site with plenty of room. The rate was the weekly rate. We will stay there again. - Mike and Darcy

This is a city park with a limited number of spaces. Park is kept picked up but the Canada Geese make this place a mess. Geese are there by the hundreds. It is located on a very small lake. There is fishing from the bank. Staff at community center which runs the park are very friendly and will help all they can. Some spots are shaded. We were visiting relatives in Paragould. - travel2011

Rate reflects Senior discount. Most all previous reviews are accurate and reflect our feelings about this campground. We chose this place as convenient and inexpensive. It is also very peaceful, calm, and a wonderful place to stay for several days and explore the area. There are some downsides, which is why I gave it a 9. First, no Wi-Fi or cable. However, we did pick up local stations over the air, so we could keep up with news and weather. Second, the roads in the park are narrow and windy. Not a problem if you are comfortable with your rig, but it is slow going. Third, though they advertise "swimming" at the park, it is Not allowed currently due to too many geese swimming and using the beach. Finally, directions to the park are not clear. Do not take SR-1; this will force you to take the Craighead Forest Rd which is narrow, has tight turns and blind hills to get to the park. All this, the camp host was wonderful, the sites very level and wide, and the bathhouse clean and well maintained. As mentioned, there is free firewood at your campsite and the sites are far enough apart to be comfortable. There are woods all around and wonderful walking trails to enjoy the beauty of the natural surroundings. We would stay here again. - Too-wow

This is an excellent park to stay in for anyone passing through or visiting in Jonesboro for a few days. Very friendly host, free firewood, easy in and out. We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it. - Haggbloom

Incredible! We were completely spoiled during our stay here. We would have stayed longer if we had not made appointments for personal business elsewhere. The camp hosts are amazingly welcoming and friendly. The laundry facility, bathroom and showers were spotless. The feeling of instant community is one that we have compared to everywhere we have stayed at since. Well Done! Looking forward to getting back here and staying again! - ColesCruising
