14 RV Parks near Alma, Arkansas
Jun 2015 - $27.00
This park is a gravel parking lot with very tight spots. The basic rate is $25 but for 50 Amps, the rate is $27. The 50 amp breaker continually tripped in site 30. Management knew it but would not fix it. I was stuck here for four days while the temperature climbed to nearly 100 degrees in my RV. Do not rely on the attached RV dealership. They did repairs on my 5th wheel hitch and the new parts fell out while I was driving to get fuel. I got back to the park and could not hook up to the 5th wheel pin. I won't be back. - KD7UCH

This is a fairly clean park with continuous distant traffic noise and some train noise.
Sites are dirt and gravel, narrow, mostly not level, in various lengths, without shade. Not all sites have sewer connections, 50 amps, or cable. Voltage is good.
Roads are dirt and gravel, in good condition.
Staff and hosts are friendly and helpful, but can be hard to find.
WiFi is strong. One afternoon I measured 653.6 kB/s down; by evening it was very slow.
Verizon LTE works well.
Showers are clean but lack privacy.
Laundry: 2 top-loaders ($1.25), 2 dryers ($1 for 46 min).
Rate is total with Good Sam. - wjzcbn

As stated by others, this is really a parking lot for the RV servicing & sales company. It is okay for an over night stay. Others have stated their site was level. Number 25 was not. Big rigs beware. I witnessed a rather large fifth wheel nearly slip into the creek that runs threw the camp grounds. The wheels dipped into a wash that had cut into the gravel roadway. Our entrance door was just 5 feet from our neighbor's full hook up drop. We were 7 feet from his unit. Staff personnel were nice and helpful. The park is pet friendly. Many "sites" appeared to be homesteading or had just dropped as a storage place. Value wise, at $25, was acceptable for clean bathroom and showers. - Laptop Willie

Just came in for one night. It is located way off road, up through a beautiful residential area. With no signs telling you where to go. This is located in a private beautiful golf course. Only one row has full hookups, the other row has electric and sewer. The road coming in, had some low tree branches, so that it a little challenging. - RV Roving Seeker

This is a very quiet park behind the golf course that is not easy to find. We were visiting family that live on the golf course so it was very convenient. Water pressure is good, 50 amp hook-up works fine and the grounds are well kept as you might expect at a golf course. I don't think that this park gets much use and we were the only RV there. It is mainly for golfers but they seemed happy to have us. We will certainly be back when we are in the area. We have a 40 foot 5th wheel. - KD7UCH

Eagle Crest RV campground and golf course was most unusual . You find the RV park by driving through a residential area and into the golf course parking lot. The RV ( 18 ) sites are down the hill and past/behind the gold cart storage building. The park is a tall grass field with some small patios and offers FHU. It was basically deserted ( one other coach ) when we arrived. There are no trees for shade, no tables, no wi-fi, no fire pits and no showers so you better be self contained. It offers highway noise throughout the night. They say they have a host, but he lives on the golf course – not at the campground. He was good to come down and introduce himself and offer assistance. We came here to take advantage of the golf special, but upon arriving, we learned of a tournament, and our promised two rounds of golf might not be possible. I think that the golf professional knew that when he took our call, but he still said come on to the campground. The course wanders through a residential neighborhood and looks fine. I didn’t get to play it because of the tournament. Our below rating covers only the campground. The overall rating might have been higher if I could have gotten on the course. We’re pretty sure we would not consider this facility for a future stop. - 5thwheeler

Very friendly staff. All sites were grass, they have full hookups available, but we just used water and electric. Some pull-through sites, the majority appeared to be back in. Would stay here again. - Len Fletcher

We decided to give this place a try looking for something east of Oklahoma. The ladies in the office were very helpful. I find this to be a great place for an over nighter and a nice day run from Amarillo. However, based on the number of RV Parks in the region, might need to stay longer and look around. Sites were clean. Lots of trees for shade. Pool was nice since it was about 85% humidity due to the Hurricane working it's way north. Definitely would go again. - sadiesassy

We have stayed here several times before. We were always in the "premium" sites, which were nice. The area around the pond is delightful. This time we stayed up on the hill. There are numerous long-term campers with a lot of junk accumulated around their campers. It is very unsightly. The sites on the hill are also very narrow. - Dreaming

This is a no frills RV park and not a destination. But it is just fine for a few nights, either just passing through, or to visit the area. It is self reservation, you pick a site, and put your money in the envelope. Utilities were fine. The campground is older, but the grass is mowed and it appears to be maintained. The bathrooms are old, but are clean and fully stocked. It's right off I-40 and made a great place to stop for the night. - Moo1966

This is a bare bones over night type park. If self contained it is adequate for stays as long as desired for other outside activities. The park is strictly for travelers or workers. It is not family oriented but is pet friendly. Payment is cash only, and they will accept checks from travelers. WiFi is not great, but available most of the time. - Oddyssey

Sites are gravel (very little in some sites) and are not level. Hookups are at back of site so we were unable to leave our tow vehicle hooked up. CG is very close to I-40 and there is a lot of noise. This CG is convenient for a 1 night stay but I would not like to be here for more than overnight. Tow vehicle had to be parked in front of our motor home. - Grammy8

The park owners are very nice but, the park is sorely in need of some TLC! The sites are not numbered and I was directed, by telephone, to the "50 Amp" row and to pick a site. Most of the residents are full timers. The sites are dirt/gravel and the entire park became a "mud puddle" when it rained. The electrical hook up worked but, was held up on a precarious angle by a wooden post. One of the photos I posted is a picture of our sites BBQ Grill... That's it sitting, rusted through on its mount pole. The sites are close... Very close where I couldn't deploy our window shades without touching our neighbors rig! When paying for our site, I asked if there was a preferred exit path... I was told their is but I should figure it out. If you're driving a Big Rig I suggest you walk the exit paths, our neighbor pulled out before us and turned left, I opted to go right. I noted he could not make the turn and had to "maneuver" their way out of the tight turn. A cable box was offered at an additional cost. We were able to pull in all of the major OTA channels. No WiFi was offered. Water, sewer and electrical all worked! - Stealth01

Arrived around 5pm after driving in 7 hrs of rain. Rang the "evening" bell, lady came right out, and proceeded to explain the area, grounds, cable booster deposit. then, altho still raining, drove her golf cart directly to our site, helped us get aligned, said if any problems the ph #'s were on our paperwork. Due to all the rain, we had to put a length of 2X8 in front of the tower to safely access the outlets, but the actual gravel pad was fine, level & mostly dry. once all hooked up & operational, hooked up the cable booster, hoping to watch the Redsox kick butt, but could not get the booster to work, tv showed "call 1-800-bla-bla". so figured cable was out due to the heavy rains, but since we had the office #, decided to just ask. The lady said, now dig this, "wait a couple minutes, ill send someone down and get you working". Was she serious? Its past 8pm, sat nite, raining, and shes sending someone??? true enuff, a man came down, showed me we simply need to shut (our) cable booster off (sumthing i didnt know about as we're only 1st year rv'ers), and the cable worked perfectly. We were so grateful (and kinda embarrassed) that we didnt think to give him a tip, altho next day we did a little sumthing for them. next day we did laundry, clean, adequate, (bring 1/4's), trash barrels easy access, and we were off. We have been learning new things about our rv each stop, from NC, to Lake Tahoe (north route) and back to NC (thru az, texas, etc), but wont forget the folks at Park Ridge!! - mike & rosie johnson

We stayed here for 3 nights at this lovely park. The spaces side-by-side were close, but long enough for our 37 ft. motorhome and towed vehicle. Plenty of nice shade trees in most of the spaces, which were not numbered. Our space was level on gravel with grass between. Shared 30 and 50 amp available, water good pressure and dump was not bad. I did not use the laundry, because there was only one working washer and unsure of the 4 dryers. The room was dirty and unacceptable to use. However, the ladies bathrooms (2) were individual and clean with shower, toilet and sink. We enjoyed our stay here and the lady in the office was very helpful and pleasant. Some of the spaces were tight to get into with many trees between, but do-able. Will stay here again next time we come to Van Buren. - We3Travel

Checking in may or may not find an attendant. Our site was on a cul de sac loop right on the water. Looks like there had been some serious flooding in areas of the park, but this campground loop was fine. Simple enough to get into the site, but too difficult to access the only dump station with our long bed truck and our 40 ft 5th wheel. - Mamag76

This park has 2 parts. A backs up to the water with a picnic table behind the camper and close to the water. All sites are asphalt and level. There is a nice space between the campsites with grass in between. B is in more of the woods, with more space in between sites than A. We drove around B. B 23 is very unlevel but the rest looked fine to us. - National Parks Traveler

On the day we arrived we had friends get here first to someone setting up in their reserved site. No reserved signs were put on either of our sites. We had a tent camper in our site. He had packed up to leave when we arrived. The site has a nice creek view. The mosquitoes were bad, the grass was high and weedy. The pad is asphalt with gravel patio. Partial shade. It was real quiet on Thursday pretty quiet on Friday. Then on Saturday and we were in A loop lots of folks come to bank fish and one had his German Shepherd roaming no leash and was nose to nose with our little dog properly on a chain at our site. One close camper had some kind of large dinner with tons of cars parked which I thought was unsafe for the kids on bikes. There is only one dump station. Our site had water and electricity. Nice to have water but still have to be conservative without the full hook up. Nowhere for it to go. Fishing here was pretty nonexistent. It was one hot October weekend. Bank fisherman don't bother to take their trash with them. Saw trash bag thrown on ground at the pavilion. There was no host Thursday when we arrived, glad our tent camper problem had been dealt with by our friend before we got here. There was no help to be found. We called the phone number, got answering machine. - AR Traveller

Site was rustic. Needed a long sewer hose because we moved forward to use Satellite. Gravel and not level but scenic once settled. Narrow access on the turn to RV section. Suggest going through the parking lot to access. Facilities were clean and our interactions with staff was wonderful. - godoit

This is a small Military RV Park but very well maintained. We stayed 2 nights here and we will definitely be back. Everyone there was really nice. Interior roads were weathered and a little tight for my rig but it was easy to navigate. - Keith Goins

Midpoint stop for the night. Reserved site was marked. Spacious sites with a small pond down the hill. We pulled in late and left early. The campground entrance is not clearly marked at night. - Rivercityjeff

Truck problems forced us to visit this RV Park. It is located in a portion of Fort Chaffee military base that was sold/gifted to the city of Fort Smith. The town is a ghost town except for a few workers here or there. The park has lots of very nice RVs; figure most are long term visitors working in the area. Only two spots were available. Price is reflects 50amp FHU, cable (only worked one of two days) and internet. Spacing was acceptable. Spot was the most unlevel spot we've encountered in 2 yrs of traveling full time and was used as someone's ash tray. Connections are at the back of the spot. - MichelleKry

We live in Arkansas and have camped at several of its State Parks, Lake Fort Smith ranks right up there in the top 3, if not number 1. This is a great park with nice trails, marina, pool and visitor's center. - markjamestx745

Beautiful campground with sites wide spaced. Restrooms excellent. Sites paved, relatively level. Some designated accessible and others were fully accessible without designation (especially the 50amp sites). No access to or view of lake, but very quiet and peaceful, and cool due to altitude and trees. - MBAustin

This is a typical Arkansas state park with beautiful scenery, spacious sites, and moderately decent amenities. From a big rig perspective, there are really only three or four sites we would feel comfortable in. Fortunately, there are numerous photos online of each site. Most sites are level for 25' or so, but become sloped the longer your rig is. We managed to level our 40' Class A without boards on one of the 3 pull-thrus. The utilities all worked well, and we found the park mowed and well maintained. The pool was open while we were there and didn't shut down throughout the day like many state park pools. (There is an extra charge - I think we paid around $5 each to use the pool.) Firewood is sold at the visitor center for less than $5 a bundle. I recommend disconnecting your toad in the visitor center parking lot before navigating the hills of the campground. The natural beauty is where LFSSP really shines; we enjoyed hiking the trails and seeing the wildlife. Be sure to bring your own food, as it is a very long drive for groceries. The visitor center sells a few supplies; there is no restaurant on site. We did encounter some low-hanging branches on the state roads approaching the park. Fortunately, there was very little traffic, and we were able to drive in the middle of the road to avoid getting smacked. If you plan to explore the park, you will need a car. There is a nice playground, a marina, and a picnic area, but all are a significant and hilly walk or bike ride away. We saved the walking for the trails and used the car to get around the park. Bring your supplies and groceries. "Town" is roughly 45 minutes away. - dad2aprincess
