We stayed at Cloud Nine for 7 days in July 2005. We are fulltimers and pull a large rig, so we were a bit apprehensive about the "long winding uphill road" comments, but the road has been newly asphalted and is among the SMOOTHEST Rv park entrances that we have found in a hilly environment. It's actually easier to enter and leave Cloud Nine than many flat-land parks! The hosts are gracious and reponsive to every need. We had a problem with the wi-fi, and they had the repairmen out the same day, and although not completely fixed, was still usable. But the real star of this show is the friendly and fine attitude of the hosts. About the park: Cloud Nine is situated on 65 acres of flat top mountain, and overlooks the vast green umbrella of oak, hickory and pine forests for as far as the eye can see. There's NO road noise and all 5 of us slept like logs. If you can back in, the views from the rear window are simply breathtaking at sunrise and sunset. The park is very clean, and there are walking paths that are kept groomed through the otherwise dense and fragrant forest. The geology has a vein of crystal running through the park and we picked up some beautiful stones here. The park is located about 2 minutes from a water-slide and roller coaster amusement park, with a go-kart track nearby, so the kids can have a ball while the adults enjoy the relaxation. Hot Springs, AR offers a wide variety of tourist attractions and activities, and Little Rock is about 40 miles away. I would give this park a solid 9 rating, saving the 10 rating for a similar high-quality park setting with a pool. This park is the closest thing we've found to a natural setting like a national park, but with all the conveniences of 50 amp outlets, wi-fi, cable, cleanliness and non-intrusive institutional hosts and rules. This "hands-off" approach to guests and their privacy is always much appreciated by fulltimers, and too often overlooked by the nicer parks.
We parked here overnight because of positive ratings on rvparkreviews. com, and found the previous reviews to be right on target. The manager/owner is very friendly and when we discovered that the $10 thirty amp hookup wasn't going to power us with a second air conditioner, the manager allowed us to just drag our land line over to an adjacent 50 amp site and pay the 3 dollars difference. We saw numberous rv'ers camped overnight in the local "picnic areas" and out in the texas underbrush off the road, but for 10 or 13 dollars, you can get a good night's sleep at this park. A real no brainer.
