Rare to find a nice quiet wooded and secluded campground this close to a major city. Located in a huge city park with bike trails and hiking trails, and all sorts of activities. Plenty of shade trees on each campsite. New restrooms/bath house. Paved, with paved parking pads. Lots of space between campers. And ONLY $18/night., because it is owned by the city. You can't find a nicer park for this price. Very quiet. Friendly campers and friendly managers. Close to everything in Little Rock. I enjoyed it.
The best thing about this park is that is owned and operated by the Corps of Engineers, therefore seniors get half price. So you can camp in nice wooded and paved campground with electric and water for $9/night. And as if that weren't good enough, there is a campground below the spillway for $14 that you can get half price senior rate for $7/night. It is paved with paved pads, has electric hookups, and a central potable water supply, and nice clean close restrooms. And the river below the dam is literally 20 steps from the back of your camper with great fishing and fish cleaning station. Picnic pavilion close by. Where you going to find a campground like this for $7/night ???
Definitely a very nice, clean, new RV resort. The cleanest restrooms and showers I've seen anywhere. It's not cheap, but you get what you pay for. Very nice fitness center, kitchen, laundry, meeting room, park store, etc. Nice lake in the center with concrete walkway all the way around. Bath houses front and rear of park. And it has gates that close at 6pm. Yes, its nice. The only thing keeping me from giving it a 10 is something they can't do anything about and that's, location. It is bordered on two sides by very busy roads with considerable vehicle noise. And one of the roads has an EMS ambulance office located on it, so you get sirens at all hours of the day and night. If you want a peaceful, quiet, spot in the wilderness, this would not be for you. The other thing that would help this park would be for more landscaping in the form of maybe palm trees and flowers. It's a new park, so most of the trees and bushes are going to take a few years to grow. Don't look for shade because you're not going to find any. Would have been nice had they planted large trees between campers. It does have nice grassy areas between campers and plenty of space between neighbors. It has a lot of positives. I personally was very impressed with it and like it despite the road noise and the need for some more trees and shrubs. Love the large concrete pads and roads. I hate parks where you have to park your RV on grass or gravel. I would recommend it for anyone to give it a try. If it's not your cup of tea, fine. But you simply will not find a newer and cleaner park than this.
