There are very few RV parks or campgrounds on I-22 between Memphis and Birmingham that are within a few minutes of the interstate highway. This place is easy access about 5 minutes off the highway and very quiet. The amenities are scarce but all sites are full hook-ups. Payment is cash only.
There are several trees but we were able to get the satellite working on site #2; only one over the air channel was available. This place would mostly be good for an overnight stay if you don't want to take on the big city traffic late afternoon/early evening.
We stayed here one night in a travel trailer and would stay again.
Very convenient to all that the St Louis metro area has to offer, with excellent access off the 370 highway, as well as I-70 but not close enough to hear the noise. Level sites with some paved but mostly gravel sites with good spacing between, many sites have a terrific view of the adjacent lake. The sites are plenty long so RV's of any size/type as well as your tow/toad vehicle will fit. All sites are full-hookup and easy to access. All have a concrete patio with a picnic table and fire ring. The park is patrolled by park rangers daily and we saw them several times making a loop of the RV park and adjoining property.
There is no shade here so it can be quite hot at times; satellite reception is excellent at all sites. There is no cable television service offered but all of the major networks are available with your over-the-air antenna. The park has wifi but it is not strong along the perimeter sites.
There is an excellent 4.5 miles paved trail around the lake, it's great for an early morning walk or bicycle ride. There are other parks nearby and closer to the city, but they do tend to be noisier, more crowded, and more expensive. This park is only 5 years old, in excellent condition, and serves as a terrific base to explore the local area. We stayed here 3 nights in a travel trailer and would visit again.
Not much to do but a fairly quiet place to spend one night or even a few more. The traffic noise from nearby Main Street quiets down around dusk and is pretty quiet all night long. Level asphalt paved sites, a few pull thru's but mostly back-in sites. Generous space between sites. Satellite antenna works well at nearly any site, a few over the air channels are available.
Because this is a city owned park it isn't private meaning anyone can drive or walk thru the place at any time of day/night. That wasn't really a problem but you do have to get used to vehicle traffic occurring a few times per day.
We stayed here 4 nights in a travel trailer and would stay again.
A beautiful COE park adjacent to Beaver Dam. There are 48 sites scattered into 3 distinct areas but most are located on a small island just offshore and connected to the mainland by an earthen levee. Most sites have generous spacing between them. Don't worry if you don't have a waterfront site because every site has a view of the water and in every direction. Fairly level sites, electric only, paved, some shaded, some near the water not shaded. There isn't water at the sites but there are 3-4 water taps scattered around the park to fill up on your way in. The dump station is located just off the main entrance road.
There is no cable or wifi here but several over the air channels available with the rooftop antenna including 3 of the 4 major networks. Satellite antenna worked well here and would do so at nearly every site. There are a handful of sites near the water with a lot of trees that might pose a reception problem. Cellular signal was very strong.
This is a fairly quiet, peaceful and beautiful setting. There is a sister park below the dam; either park offers excellent fishing and this park with its' boat launch also offers excellent boating activities. Go outside well after dark and check out all of the stars in the sky, you won't be disappointed. We camped here 2 nights in a travel trailer and would visit again.
Convenient, clean, well maintained RV park. Plenty of shade, all gravel full-hookup sites. Most are pull-thru some are back-in. If you are looking for a swimming pool and loads of costly amenities this is not your place; instead you'll be relaxing in a comfortable setting with a nice country feeling. The park has a very small clubhouse that is not open all of the time; there is also a small camp store but we did not visit. The park advertises wifi but it did not work well most of the time. We were able to use the satellite antenna but that would not be the case at every site. Received 3 television channels via the over-the-air rooftop antenna.
The park is very close to many natural areas and water based attractions nearby and much of that is referenced on their website. This is a good place to stay for either an overnight or a few days to experience the local area. The park has their own hiking trail that is very well done. The only negative about the park itself is that it is located adjacent to US Hwy 60 and there is a good deal of road noise during daylight hours; after dusk and overnight that wasn't as noticeable.
We stayed here one night in our travel trailer and would visit again.
This is a family owned campground that is very well maintained and very quiet especially in the evenings. All gravel sites separated by well mowed grassy areas. Space between sites is adequate but not spacious. The park is all pull-through sites in the middle with back-in sites along the perimeter. Most of the sites are full-hook up and fairly level. The park is close to all of the caves in the local area and only about 2 miles from the entrance to Mammoth Cave NP. Additionally the Lincoln birthplace and Lincoln boyhood home locations are less than one hours drive to the north and well worth the trip.
Wifi signal worked well most of the time, all of the major television networks are available with your over-the-air antenna, and most of the sites have minimal tree coverage so satellite television works very well on most sties.
This is not a fancy over-priced park that is full of amenities you won't use. But if you want a clean, quiet, full-hook up site and good wifi signal in a convenient location it fits the description. We stayed here 4 nights in a travel trailer and would stay again. Daily rate reflects Good Sam discount.
This is a beautiful campground with almost 400 campsites spread over a large area. Some leveling will be needed on just about every site, and the access for long trailers or RV's is tight for some sites. There is plenty of shade but many spots in the Dogwood Loop sites 1-31 offer clear sight lines for satellite television reception. There are other sites that might offer reception with some maneuvering of your antenna. Only received PBS channel over the air; there is no wifi available, and at least for us no cellular reception.
This is a really nice campground for kids as well as adults. Numerous speed bumps slow down the traffic throughout the park and there is plenty of things to do including hiking trails. Very quiet most all of the time, it's well off the major highways and super quiet in the evenings. If you are close to the lake there might be boat noise but most days it's sporadic and limited to the daylight hours.
Seasonal camping is allowed in certain areas; several local residents take advantage of this and use their sites on both a semi-permanent basis and a limited (occasional) basis. Most of these sites are well kept.
We stayed here 4 nights in a travel trailer and would stay again. The daily rate in my review reflects a full hookup site in the Dogwood Loop, and seems a bit high to me for no wifi and no cable.
This is a gravel parking lot behind the Lambert's Cafe. All sites are pull-thru and full hook-up but are close together. Wifi works excellent, your rooftop antenna will receive all of the major network channels from nearby Springfield, and satellite reception is excellent because there are no trees.
It's a very basic RV Park with no other amenities, and good for an overnight or a short weekend stay. The price should be lower in my opinion, but it is still below most of the other full-service RV Parks in the area.
There is something for everyone here at this state park. Agree with the previous reviews already posted here and will avoid repeating them. I will add that many of the sites will require some leveling, and none of the sites have a water tap. Fill your fresh tank on the way into your site and ration accordingly. We stayed in Campground 1 and found it to probably be the most quiet of the 3 campgrounds; it's a bit removed from the nearby highway unlike campground 2,3. Excellent restrooms and shower rooms, the entire park is extremely clean. This park is one that the state has installed complimentary wifi and at least in campground 1 it worked very well thru the entire campground. There are some sites nearest the restrooms in campground 1 that will allow use of a satellite television antenna but the further back in the loop you go the thicker are the trees. I could not get a single over-the-air channel with my rooftop antenna.
Recommend hiking a portion of the trail system here. It's quite extensive, some are simple (The River Trail), others are more difficult (Fire Tower Trail). My favorite was the Eagles Nest Trail but all of them are great. We stayed here in a travel trailer and would return.
What a great location, easy on/off the interstate highway and right within the heart of the city. There is some highway noise but I've experienced worse noise in many other locations. Two nearby pedestrian bridges connect to downtown Little Rock.
This RV park has all gravel sites, the are fairly close together with full hookups. The electrical service is 50 amp only. Most sites have a slight slope towards the river so some leveling will probably be needed. There is no cable television service but all major networks are accessible with the roof-top antenna. Satellite works very well here because there are very few trees. Wifi was excellent and one of the best I've ever used in a campground. The gates are secured overnight for security but still accessible with a code provided when you check in.
