For what it is I would give the park high marks. That is, it is a place to stay while visiting the area. As was said before, lots of workers and permanents, but no problems and my neighbors were all friendly. It is mostly gravel with lots of trees. Cable was great and no, there is no shutoff or breaker in the box for electric. Just shut down your trailer before plugging in. But is pretty much in the middle of Jonesboro so its great if your visiting there. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Perkins is not a 'glamorous' park, but it excels at what it is. It is a place for long-term transient workers or 'snowbirds' to stay. When you are used to 'Good Sams' parks and resorts, you may be wary about staying here, but don't. It is a nice, quiet park with friendly guests and owner. The property has an RV side and a Mobile Home side. Althought there were several homesteaders (RV's with huge external propane tanks and residential refrigerators/freezers outside) they were all well kept and appear to be in good repair. There were several overflowing garbage drums around the park, but I believe the owner was busy keeping the grass mowed and just got behind. He is a nice fellow, and was very busy, allowing me to just drop a check through the mail slot when I got a chance. They DO NOT take credit cards. I wasn't bothered by the road noise, but we didn't spend much time at/around our site, and it never woke any of my family up. The water spigot has a 4-head adapter that feeds different adjacent spaces, but we never had any pressure issues. The sewer hook-up never back flowed, but did leave our downspout messy. The other issue I had was with the 50-amp service. It was just a plug and NO breaker: a cable running under the pine needles. I prayed, plugged it in, went inside, restoring the circuit breakers, everything worked, but it was a bit unnerving. The cable TV worked great, but we only watched the Weather Channel due to tornadoes in the area. No Wi-Fi but my Sprint phone and Verizon Aircard worked fine in 3G mode. There are phone company demarks at each space, so you could get a phone line and DSL if you are staying for a month or more. This park beats staying in a Wal-Mart thanks to the hook-ups and level spaces, so do not hesitate to stay at Perkins, despite its 'dated' look. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Park is located with easy on and off Hwy access but does have a lot of traffic noise. Sites are level and have good drainage, but narrow. They do not have any showers, bathrooms or laundry on site. There are many permanent RV'ers living on the premises who are very friendly. The owner is helpful and very nice. The park is conveniently located near many stores and restaurants so you can shop and eat until you drop. BYOB as it is a dry county. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park works as an overnight stop. It's right next to a very busy highway and is extremely noisy between 5am and midnight. The owner is friendly and helpful but this is a very old park with mostly permanent residents and reflects that in appearance. If you're tired, it's after dark and choices are limited (and they are in this area) then it works fine. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park is right on the highway and is great for an overnight stop. It's mostly long term trailers but the few spots they have open are level, full hookups with cable. No Wi-Fi at all. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Convenient as it is right off the highway, although you can hear the buzz of the highway when outside your rig. Nice camp hosts. There are few shade spots but there is a forested area with a small pond that you can fish in, but I cannot vouch for fish since I didn't try to catch any. Not all sites are 50 amp and not all sites are full hook-up. Great place to stop if you are passing through and want to leave first thing in the morning. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
