I was very impressed with this campground. I had driven past it many times and seen RVs lined up backing up to the highway. I was afraid that's what we were in for. Thankfully, I was 100% off base. Those RVs are either being stored or are for sale. The actual sites are either behind a row of trees or down in a 'lower loop'. The full service sites are on the upper level and are much farther apart than some places we've stayed. We chose to stay in the lower loop which has electric service, but not water or sewer. That being said, a staff member filled our water storage tank on our way in and there are 2 dump stations on the way out. The lower loop was filled with families with small kids, which some may object to. but we loved listening to kids running around playing. It was such a refreshment from watching kids sit around with their noses in their phones. We had a lovely time and we'd stay again in a heartbeat. We camped at Chalk Creek Campground & RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Lots of rafting companies nearby, as well as a natural hot springs. The office staff is very helpful and friendly. This is an extremely well run campground. Definitely in the top 5 of anyplace we've ever stayed.

Don't arrive 1 minute before 1 pm. Treated like kindergartners in regards to "the rules"..no trees in upper area..for the price it's nothing special.

Road noise quite evident all the time.

Superior acting personnel. Sorry..this one is OFF our list!! We camped at Chalk Creek Campground & RV Park in a Motorhome.

This park is very nice. We stayed in the upper campground in our RV and had a very nice end space with views of the mountains. The owners are very friendly and accommodating. When I called to make the reservation I told the owner we had three dogs and she made sure to put us right by the fully enclosed dog run (which my 3 pups loved!). The park is really pretty with little streams running through it, and of course the river if you are staying in the lower campground. The WiFi was OK, but we were visiting during the very end of season so there weren't many other guests. We were not able to get any local TV stations, though. We camped at Chalk Creek Campground & RV Park in a Motorhome.

High priced for what it is. We only had electric hookup. And pay for showers on top of that? A lot of traffic noise in lower lot where we were if you aren't right on the creek. But in the fall one can close windows. A lot of shade and fall colors in the lower lot which was nice. Wish campfires were not allowed, the smoke was very present in the evenings. Didn't see any operators. Had to search out the camp host for the WiFi code. WiFi was very good. We camped at Chalk Creek Campground & RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Park is very organized and neat. Lower area is for tents or RV's with no sewer hookup. Some lower sites have creek frontage. There is a dishwashing station and bathrooms for the tenters. Sites are gravel and dirt, the full hookup sites are roomy. We were in a "Deluxe" site but our view was a storage yard with RV and Trailer storage and noisy as they move in and out. A pity since there are great mountain views. The Wifi is agonizingly slow when you can connect. We camped at Chalk Creek Campground & RV Park in a Motorhome.

Close to rafting and tubing on the Arkansas River. ATVing all over the area is a big sport. Many hiking trails.

Just got back from five nights at this park. Pull through spaces were nice and wide with picnic table included. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Sites were gravel. The negatives of the park are - no cable, had to pay for the showers - also not a very pretty view. There are two different areas in the park, one is down by the creek where we did not stay. Much prettier down by the creek. We camped at Chalk Creek Campground & RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Stayed in a pull through in our motor home, basically a dirt parking lot with a view out our front window of an RV/equipment storage lot and beyond that a salvage yard of some type. Grossly overpriced for what they offer! We camped at Chalk Creek Campground & RV Park in a Motorhome.

Stayed here off season in mid October. Had no other campers in the lower campground (electric only sites). Wonderful site next to the creek, good size site, many trees, enjoyed the two nights we stayed. Rarely use campground restrooms, but due to cleanliness used their facilities. Very friendly and helpful staff. Stayed here in a small motor home, large rigs may have difficulties negotiating the lower campground. Will stay here again to spend more time exploring the surrounding area. We camped at Chalk Creek Campground & RV Park in a Motorhome.

We had site 27 a lovely site by the beautiful Chalk Creek in the lower camp ground. The place is kept immaculate and is possibly the best kept place we have ever stayed in. Very friendly owners. The only thing letting it down is the proximity to the main road and the inherent roar of trucks at night. Lower campgrounds sites don't have water and sewer, but are worth it for the shade and the stream. We camped at Chalk Creek Campground & RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The park has a creek running through the lower section, but the sites there may be difficult for larger 5th wheels or motor coaches. Upper section is basically a gravel and dirt parking lot with utilities. There are trees around the campground, but none/no shade at our premium site. The campground has some very nice surrounding mountain views. No real walking or biking areas. We stayed a week and didn't even bother taking the bikes down from the rack. The lower section has many tent campers who come up to the upper section showers (coin operated). Sitting outside at our premium site, there was always a slight whiff of sewage/garbage that my wife and I both noticed. Possibly something in basement of the cabin next to our site. Lots to do in the local area, but I'd stay elsewhere next time. This was way overpriced for what they deliver. We camped at Chalk Creek Campground & RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice staff and sites but 40/nite is steep for electric only. Good Wi-Fi although the campground guidelines warned us against over using it. Most of the low score comes from the attitude shown on the guidelnes given at time of induction. "Violations of any of the guidelines may result in expulsion with no refund. Please advise the office of any infractions so that they may be addressed" yep in the Guidelines! I have never been ask to inform on my fellow camper before. As I said the staff did not represent this attitude. I think Col Klink may have had something to do with the guidlines. We camped at Chalk Creek Campground & RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed in a full hook up site with our 38' 5th wheel. Spacious site with wonderful mountain views. The campground was spotless and the staff exceptionally friendly and helpful. Restrooms and showers were truly exceptional. They also have electric only sites by the creek, under lots of trees. Those are beautiful sites also. We will return!

We stayed here for a month while we photographed the area. The park is divided into upper (RV Full Hook Ups) and Lower (Electric only). The Lower campground is nicely shaded and on Chalk Creek. The upper campground is partially shaded and has pull through's and back in's. There is a small irrigation stream that flows between some of the sites in the upper campground. The owners and staff are extremely friendly and the park is immaculate. There is a small store, game room, and the WiFi works well. There are pot lucks and some other activities on busy weekends. We felt very welcome here and would definitely stay here again. One of the best parks that I have stayed in. We camped at Chalk Creek Campground & RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We got the last site available for a busy Saturday night, it was the overflow site up against the bathhouse but with FHU and 50 amps. Yes, it was all gravel but very nice, immaculately clean. Friendly staff and folks. I do not like pay showers, but we used our own. However, for the people in the lower campground with grass, trees and stream there were only portal potties. They had to walk up the hill to get to the really beautiful bathhouse. What really impressed us about this place was that two rigs came in with no place to go on a Saturday night, so the staff parked them in a grassy field and ran extension cords so that the people could have electricity overnight, instead of just turning them away. This gave us a warm feeling about the place. No cable but there was a sign in the office that there was no digital TV in the area. We turned our converter box off, and had good network TV. We will definitely return. We camped at Chalk Creek Campground & RV Park in a Motorhome.

Upper campground is like a parking lot for RV's but has full hook ups. Lower campground is very small and the sites are so close together that I would not come back. The campground is very clean though. If you plan to hike or take day trips and only be at campground to sleep then it is OK. If you like to hang out in your campsite and read a book or lounge in a chair I would NOT recommend this campground. We camped at Chalk Creek Campground & RV Park in a Travel Trailer.
