We visited this park in a travel trailer in July, 2018. It was so crowded with loud atv noise at all hours of the night. Their website said wi-fi, cable, and splash park which were not there. The store was a disappointment. We parked up by the store and the sewers were cleaned out beside us leaving a horrible smell and flies This is a great spot to begin floating down the river. The sandbar and beach were too crowded to find a place to let the kids play in the water. We camped at The Family Campground On Current River (Formerly Deer Run Campground) in a Travel Trailer.

The following comments are related to the RV sites in the office area. We did not explore the RV sites near the Current River. Positives about Deer Run Campground: 1) Our RV Space was a level concrete slab with lots of shade. Negatives about Deer Run Campground: 1) Poorly maintained campground. Piles of trash and debris everywhere. 2) There seemed to be no one on the office staff with any sense of ownership or pride in maintenance. 3) Absolute ripoff at $51 a night. Half that price would still be too much. 4) Our site was supposed to have cable TV, but the cable adapter was broken. When I mentioned to the office staff, they said "We don't have cable TV." 5) Very nasty looking pool area. Pool water in desperate need of a shock treatment. They would have to pay me $51 a night before I would even think about staying here. There are lots of decent campgrounds in this area; avoid this one. I recognize that Van Buren had massive flooding last year, but it is still a crummy campground.

Great park. The new owners are working to make this a very clean family-oriented park. The location is just beautiful, on the Current River. The sites all have nice level concrete pads with full hook-ups to include cable and free wireless internet. The camp store was pretty well stocked and the employees were all very helpful. We will stay here again. We camped at The Family Campground On Current River (Formerly Deer Run Campground) in a Travel Trailer.

This really is a great campground. We stayed here a week and loved every minute. The bathrooms and showers were very clean and centrally located. The pool was cery clean and well kept. The owners are friendly and are working very hard to improve the grounds and facilities. This is a very family friendly campground. It sits directly on the Current River and is about a 10 minute drive from Van Buren. We camped at The Family Campground On Current River (Formerly Deer Run Campground) in a Travel Trailer.
