Most of the sites do not have shade and there are almost no pine trees, but, other than that it is almost perfect. The short-term stays are assigned to the center pull-through spaces which are level and paved. It is very easy to stay without unhooking a tow. The utilities were all very good. Satellite is certainly not a problem since there are few trees. We had a very strong Verizon cell and data signal. It is on a busy highway, so there is traffic noise, but it was not too bad at night. One thing worth noting. It is not really the campground's fault, but we had a terrible smell from the near-by paper mill all night, but that is true of the entire area. We would certainly stay here again. We camped at Shady Pines RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

There is an Albertson's Grocery about 8 miles away with a very good food selection. The main center of Texarkana is about 20 minutes away.

Great pull thru but no one around for 4 hours like registering late at night
This was at 1pm. Showers were a joy but only one restroom for each gender seemed a bit "small." Had tornado sirens for two hours but no one knew where to go. Only thing open were the showers and the laundry room where the manager holed up. Not much shade given its name but overall it was good. We camped at Shady Pines RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is one of our favorite places to stay when making our trek to FL. Road and sites are all concrete. Sites are extra long and very level. Free wi-fi. No cable but we can pick up several channels with our antenna. Lots of open grassy area to walk the puppies. Picnic table and concrete patio at every site. Very clean facility. Would recommend this park to anyone for an overnight or longer stay. We camped at Shady Pines RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a first-rate campground. Clean, level concrete sites as is the roads with well maintained grass between sites and picnic table. It's not a large campground but the individual sites are large, we had a pull thru that we always like but even the back-ins are good size. There is fishing pond that is stocked. Excellent Wi-Fi, no cable, but the TV had good reception on antenna. We camped at Shady Pines RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Shady Pines is an every year stop for us on our way to and back home from Alabama for the winter. A bit out of the way however worth the time and effort. Well maintained and managed. Highly recommend. One big strength to me is that the utilities (electrical, water and sewer) are all on a concrete pad which is very nice.

Sites are spacious, sunny and open with a patio and picnic table. We camped at Shady Pines RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a really nice park. We stayed here for a couple nights as a stopover on our way home. We found this park on Allstays and it had good reviews on RV Park Reviews and decided to take a chance. It was a pleasure staying here. All nice level full service concrete sites in a park that is well manicured and kept neat. The people were friendly and helpful, the showers, restrooms and laundry were all good. Not sure about cable. We used our satellite system and there are several local area stations. Very impressed. We will stay here anytime we are going through Texarkana. We camped at Shady Pines RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Check is was very fast and efficient. The sites are concrete with about 20 feet of very nice grass between them. Hey are long enough for our 36' motorhome and a tow. Navigation was fairly easy. There is no cable but we were able to pull in several stations with our antenna. There is wifi, but like most campgrounds, it is very slow. My Verizon signal was adequate but was only 3G at times. Here was some road noise from highway 67, but I didn't notice it much. I should say here that noise doesn't bother me much. While there isn't a dog run at the park, there is plenty of grass for them to walk on. We overnighted here while we were traveling on I-30, and would overnight here again.

Nice little RV park. The outer ring of sites appeared to be monthly renters and the inner sites were all pull-throughs. Vice nice paved and level sites. Well manicured grass and enough separation.

Only two small unisex bathrooms and 4 separate Shower rooms. But were clean.

All in all a solid 7.5 to 8.0 on our personal grading scale. We camped at Shady Pines RV Park in a Motorhome.

This was a very impressive park. It is exceptionally clean and well-maintained. Almost all sites are pull-through, and quite spacious. The pads and roads are all concrete, and the utility connections are all in great condition. There's a stocked fishing pond as well.

On the night I stayed, I was told there was no reservation needed, so when I got there I just chose the site I wanted and pulled in. Since I arrived after hours I just left cash in an envelope at the office drop box.

It's a little far from the main highways, but I thought it was worth driving a few miles. I would stay here again. We camped at Shady Pines RV Park in a Motorhome.

We came to this park without a reservation after we bailed on another local park. There was no problem - we were given a pull-thru plenty long enough to stay hooked up, cement pad, level. The grounds are beautiful, the site was spacious. It is a little off the beaten path, but it turned out that we were able to re-route our trip and not lose any time. Really one of the nicest parks we've stayed at. We would absolutely come here again, and probably make it a destination rather than just a one night stop.

After being held up in traffic due to nightmarish construction around Little Rock, we were slated to arrive after their office closed at 6PM. No reservation required, park yourself, said the pleasant voice on the other end of the line.

Well, that kind of casualness makes all our hair stand up, right? I know what you picture too, when you hear those words: a grasscrete patch between two permanent residents on a windblown stretch of trash-strewn grass overlooking an Interstate. Our apprehension was compounded by our size: 45 foot rig pulling a 20 foot enclosed car hauler.

Imagine our surprise, discovering a spacious, luxuriously paved park with landscaping on par with the White House lawn. I'm simply dazzled by this gorgeous park. After a 3,000 mile trip packed painful arrival surprises, this crown jewel of Texarkana is one of the best we've ever visited.

The entry to the park is after the RV dealership of the same name, heading south. They've installed a nice wide driveway, so there is no harm no foul to coasting in on the shoulder for the last 200 yards. We camped at Shady Pines RV Park in a Motorhome.

We stay at this park twice a year for overnighters, and this year we decided to spend three nights since we enjoy it so much. Beautiful manicured landscaping in a lovely country setting with a small lake and lots of trees surrounding the park. No pool and no cable TV, but otherwise a solid 10. We camped at Shady Pines RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
