Super convenient

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.

We stayed here in a travel trailer and would visit again.

Quiet and scenic

This park is super quiet except for the occasional boat traffic on the adjacent river, but even that is normally during daylight hours. We stayed in the river loop and those sites are pretty level with decent space between. Grills and picnic tables at each site. The loop road is a bit narrow, making it more difficult than most parks to access your site given that all sites are back-in and not pull-thru. Even so there are numerous Class A RV's that are parked here. There is asphalt thru the entire park on both the loop roads and RV sites.

Wifi works fairly well here. All of the major television networks are available with the over-the-air rooftop antenna. Satellite television is widely used here but there are some sites that may not offer clear sight lines due to trees. There is no sewer at the RV sites but there are two dump stations, one in each loop. The bathhouse and shower are excellent alternatives if you're spending several days here. The park and especially the river are beautiful and well maintained. There is a short nature trail in the river loop and a pretty nice playground for kids in the original loop nearest the access road. For additional hiking take the short drive to Fontainbleu State Park. There is also a nice sandy beach there on the north shore of the lake. But to me this campground is nicer.

We stayed here in a travel trailer and would return.

Far from perfect

There are several other reviews posted here that are very positive and for the most part it's a very nice park but there are some issues we encountered. The park itself has very level pull-thru sites and is easily accessible off of the interstate highway. The sites are fairly close together and at times makes site access difficult if vehicles are parked in the roads. It's very noisy from both the interstate highway at the front of the park as well as a state highway at the rear of the park.

The park offers cable television but it did not work at our site. Fortunately several channels are available using the rooftop antenna and satellite works fine as there are no trees in the park. The park offers 30 amp and 50 amp service of course but the 30 amp did not work at our site; we simply plugged into the 50 amp using an adapter. The park offers complimentary wifi but it does not work thru probably 75% of the park; you can receive signal only from about the first couple of rows of sites that are near the office. This is a huge frustration for all of us; if wifi is advertised we expect to be able to at least use it for email and basic web information from the comfort of our RV's. The park offers a free breakfast but it's hardly anything worthwhile and normally sparsely taken advantage by guests. The park offers an exercise room, but it's just one lonely treadmill in a small room with books for sharing.

The bathrooms and shower facilities were top notch, and the playground is excellent for children. We also used the laundry facilities and they worked very well. The folks in the office could use some lessons in courtesy and having a sense of urgency towards some of the issues that exist. Things could be improved to justify what is a very expensive nightly rate for what was a very average stay for us. We stayed here in a travel trailer and might stay again if some of the shortcomings were resolved.

Alternative to staying in Austin

We could not get into any RV parks in Austin so moved a bit east and stayed here. It's about 15 minutes drive into the city if the traffic cooperates. Mostly permanent residents but still fairly quiet especially at night. Wifi system worked fine, over-the-air channels are numerous and all from the Austin area. There are some trees in the park but our site allowed for satellite reception just fine.

There isn't anything special about this park and it's a little expensive for the amenities and setting, but it's fine for a few nights and provides convenient access to the entire area. There are several other parks nearby including several in the Bastrop about another 8 miles further east.

We stayed here in a travel trailer and would stay again.

Easy access to Dallas

Located on the east side of Dallas, away from most of the congestion and noise of the big city. All gravel pull-thru sites, they're fairly close together but mostly level. No trees so satellite reception is great, and over the air channels abound because of the close proximity to the city. The wifi system worked very well. Very quiet park at night, and no highway noise at all.

The park is still recovering from a Dec 2015 tornado but the sites that are in use are in full working order and free of debris. We stayed here in a travel trailer and would stay again.

Scenic and Relaxing

Very close to all that Memphis offers yet little of the annoyances and noise. Conveniently located about 2 miles off the interstate and there is no highway noise. Interesting watching the river traffic moving along the nearby Mississippi River, and some sites are so close to the river bank the barges are easily in view.

The park offers sites that are in a wooded area or an open area near the river bank, also gravel or paved sites. Space between sites is about normal, not too close but not wide apart either. It's a very level park and probably no side-to-side leveling will be needed for your RV. Full hookup sites are everywhere.

There is no cable television here but we picked up about 35 local channels by roof-top antenna including all of the major networks. Satellite reception will be excellent at most river-front sites, but suggest making that request when placing your advanced reservation. There is complementary wifi and it worked well most times; like other parks it is stressed by the large number of devices that are connected.

This RV park is very peaceful and relaxing, with a scenic direct view of the river. Our site was paved and directly adjacent to the river; however during the summer months it could be very hot because there is no shade there. We stayed here in a travel trailer and would visit again.

Affordable and Quiet

Very quiet location, full hookups, mostly level sites. It's about 2 miles off the interstate highway so no highway noise at night. The access road is a bit narrow but doable for even the largest RV's. While the campground itself has some rolling hills the sites are all mostly very level. The all gravel sites are a bit narrow as well but reasonable space between your neighbors.

Very strong wifi signal, you can get a few over the air tv channels including some of the networks. We used the satellite television system here but there are some sites with trees so be sure to mention that when making your reservation.

The price is right to stay here, very reasonable for the location and services offered.

Very basic and overpriced

This park is not a value for the nightly cost and offers no services. No wifi, no cable tv, tight spaces, only one picnic table for the entire rv park, no street lamps so it's very dark at night, and of course it's pretty noisy from the interstate traffic that is quite close. There are not many choices in this area, that probably has a lot to do with the overnight rate that is charged here. While it's convenient to travelers and offers full hookups there is nothing else to get excited about.

I would not stay here again but instead plan my route with a few additional miles to locate an RV park that offers services that really matter.

Excellent

Completely new within the past 10 years, this park is convenient to the nearby interstate highway but wonderfully quiet. Fully paved concrete sites with asphalt roads throughout the park, there are 20 full hookup sites. Didn't have to even do any side-to-side leveling at the site either, and all sites have picnic table and most have partial shade.

Most of the full hookup sites will offer satellite reception, and there are a handful of over-the-air antenna channels available including most of the major networks. Be sure to ask when making your reservation if you can use a satellite antenna at the chosen site. There is no wifi service thru the campground but is available at the visitor center, plus cellular service is very strong all over.

The hiking is very good here with hikes of 1m, 4m, and 10m+ readily available. Highly recommend hiking a portion of the Ozark Highland Trail which has its' western terminus right behind the park's visitor center. Even covering a short 2-3 miles of this trail on a day hike you'll get a solid feeling of the ruggedness of the Ozark mountains where you're camping.

We stayed here in a travel trailer and would return. Don't be put off by the winding access road from the interstate, the park is only about 6 miles off the highway. Just slow down, it's very drive-able including for those with large RV's.

Very nice park

This is a really great RV park that is convenient to the adjacent theme parks, the KC metro area, or other nearby towns. Despite some confusion on how to enter the park and the exact location of the office to complete the check-in process the sites themselves are really nice. The park is adjacent to the Worlds of Fun and Oceans of Fun theme parks, and offers a view of the roller coaster. Although the theme parks were not open the day that we arrived one could imagine the coaster in plain view and hearing the screams of delight from its' passengers.

There are 80+ sites here and they're pretty long, mostly level, concrete pad, some are pull-thru, others are back-in sites, and the park roads are also concrete. Cable television is included in the daily rate, all major networks also available with your over-the-air antenna, and a satellite antenna would work well because while there are trees/shrubs at nearly every site they are still very young and not tall. The downside is potentially not much shade on a very hot day. The park offers wifi service but the entire time we spent there it seemed overwhelmed with the number of users and as a result was not reliable. However because of the city location cellular service is terrific. Every site has a picnic table, a grill, and a trash can. Several cabins and cottages are available for those without an RV.

The park is very popular and sells out many weekends and during holiday time periods. There is some traffic noise from the interstate highway, but mostly from the adjacent access road to the park itself and especially from a truck/trailer maintenance facility that lies south of the RV park. The park was very clean and well maintained, we stayed here in a travel trailer and would stay again.
