Positives: Recently built so all new infrastructure including city water & sewer with all FHU sites that include 50amp service. All driveways and sites newly asphalted and level. Spacious sites, plenty of room for 40 ft Motorhome & tow vehicle. Negatives: Still a work in progress so no office, no restrooms, no showers, no laundry, no playground or amenities. So, the price was on the high side for just hookups but everything worked great. All open, no trees, some grass in between sites. It was fine for an overnight stop. You call the manager when you enter, pick a site, and she comes later to your site to settle up. Near the interstate but park has trees on three sides and noise was minimal. I think security needs to be improved. Very dark at night, seemed like a safe area but there were only a few of us in the park and very open with no one around. - SD_EWALD

I'm giving this an overall rating of 9, but only 3 stars for Value because, for what it is, it is fantastic. Right off of I-40, very easy to get to and back on the road again when you leave. Very clean, level, paved sites, no trees. Pull-throughs handled our 45 ft rig and tow vehicle easily. Has a number of area security lights. Convenience store about 300 ft away. We were not bothered by the nearby I-40 traffic. Light sleepers may have trouble. GREAT overnight spot. However, there are no restrooms, showers, or other amenities. Management is offsite but reachable by phone. Person came by and collected our fee before dark. Again, for an overnight spot, it is GREAT, yet a little pricey at $35. - Mtidwell

New...nice and clean with level hard surface pads, no onsite staff, but she came over quickly to collect for the night. - Steve Vanleigh 375FL

If this was the last campground on earth, pass it by. Electric boxes are a mess, wiring exposed. Roads are poor. This park is getting no maintenance, they are just collecting the money. - Tom Ahlgrim

T Ricks is right off of I-40. All they have is water and electric hook ups. They are putting in showers and a Subway. So they are trying to improve. I would stay there again for a overnight stop. The concrete slabs are sloped, but they are OK for one night. - Nedrs

I truly wish there was a rating lower than one. After a long day of hard driving with strong winds, rough roads, heavy truck traffic and construction, we tried to find a campground before we got to Little Rock and rush hour traffic. We settled on T Rick's which is basically a service station with RV sites behind it. Sites were covered with dry grass that must have been a foot high when it was mowed. At 2:00 am a semi truck pulled through the site next to ours to turn around (it sounded like he was coming through the bedroom!) then parked on the road exiting the park. When I opened the blinds in the morning every road in and out of the park had an eighteen wheeler parked on it. Going back to sleep after the eighteen wheeler passed through was almost impossible because of the road noise. With any luck we won't have to drive through Arkansas again, but if we do and need a place to park we will go to the Walmart in Carlisle. We have never stopped at Walmart but it would have to be much better. - ccc24

Due to a snow storm, Interstate 40 was shut down in the direction we were going. Instead of taking the alternate route, which fortunately someone at Kroger told us was not a good option, we chose to stay here. The overnight rate was good, had concrete drives and pull through pads that were fairly level. However, the electric hookup 50 amp, which we tried, was obviously wired incorrectly since it kept tripping. Finally just hooked up to 120. Even then it periodically went off and back on. Just enough power to run the fan on our LP gas heater on a freezing overnight. Had to run the generator to make coffee. A previous review, which I didn't read until this morning said that the ground and neutral were switched. Too bad they can't get it fixed. We will not be back. - Texas E-S

Give it no stars. 2/3 of park has no power. Trash every where, dumpster not emptied in several weeks, or maybe months. Trash on ground around it and all smells bad. Weeds 2 to 3 ft. tall, hasn't been mowed in over 2 weeks, grass 10 in. high. I was worried about snakes. No full concrete pads, only power I could use was in a back-in space. Motel manager said there was WIFI, No WIFI that would reach out to behind motel, only one free air TV station. Have to go to front desk to get key for restroom. Worst site I have ever stayed at. - Grandpa TJ

In very poor condition. I tried two pedestals and my power management system rejected both because the ground and neutral were reversed. Got my money back and went to Forrest City. - camprats
Aug 2015 - $18.00
Hookups were satisfactory...no problems.
Person in charge was very helpful and efficient. The long time residents weren't friendly. The trash cans did need emptying.
Lots of character, shade trees, convenient to shopping and fast food. It's on main street (also highway 49)..
The night manager was a friendly and charming fellow .
We will visit again.

We arrived at the park and we were taken back by the condition. It honestly looked like the place had been abandoned. Several electrical boxes with wires hanging out. Grass was knee deep and I wouldn't ask my worst enemy to enter the shower/bath house. NASTY!!! Do yourself a favor and go elsewhere. - rynho29

Stay away from site #4 unless you want to get a tingle from an ungrounded power box! We had left a nice Super Walmart in Dothan, AL, that morning, but realized our trailer generator was not working up to par, and we were low on propane. We decided to find a park close to I-40 and out from Little Rock (the highway from Birmingham to Memphis had taken its toll on us). The best thing I can say about it is that most of the electrical hook-ups worked. We were able to turn on the electric element in the hot water heater and use our electric space heater and then get the heck out of here early the next morning. In our situation it was worth the price for a ONE night stay. Although they say all lots are pull-throughs, you had better walk it first. The tree limbs are not trimmed back enough to safely pull through with a rig that is nearly 13' high, and it is difficult to find a pad site that will accommodate a 53' rig (left connected for a fast exit). From the look of it only sites 5, 6 and maybe 7 were able to be backed into, if the cars of the motel "guests" weren't in the way. I'd pick pad 5 (easier to back into and less likely to get blocked in). Oh yes, the night manager really doesn't seem to care about much of anything. - Okie Drifter

Convenient to I-40. VERY NEAT AND CLEAN. Gravel sites FHU. Great for one night stay. Only a few sites for transient. Cash or check only. Nice owner. - Joyce Denke
May 2018 - $20.00
For $20 a night it was a great location. There are only about 3 or 4 sites that are open for public, rest are permanents that work in the area. They are quiet and clean, everyone of them. Super nice owner, very easy going runs a clean ground. It is 90% gravel with some areas of concrete. We were in a pull thru that faced his and his wife's house. Out in the distance you can occasionally hear a train. Only when you are awake and quiet in RV. NOTE: he only accepts cash or check. We stayed here 5 days. The dogs were allowed to be walked anywhere. We didn't use our leads as it seemed no one else here had dogs. Nor did we see anyone except when they were coming home and then didn't see them after that. I would stay here again if we were passing through again. - Victoria Grace

This little park is mostly seasonal or permanent but everyone keeps an immaculate site. Owner lives in home on site and was very friendly. When we called ahead there was only one site open so be sure to call. (870-589-0850) Park is about 4 miles off 40 and roads going through town are narrow but manageable. Going Eastbound on 40, take exit 216 not 202 as our GPS suggested. Turn right on 49 then after 3 miles turn left on 49. As soon as you are on top of bridge slow to turn left at 2nd drive. If coming in at night be careful of culvert when turning into park. Pull in to the right to go around pole barn. No amenities but satellite and Verizon worked fine. Grass for pets. - blumarlin

It was poring down rain when we got there about 10 pm. The owner was out there helping us set up. Now let me tell you that it was an 80 year old gentleman. He was very helpful and told us how to set up. It was our first time to stay in the camper. We are going back there in July. Very nice gentleman. We only stayed one night and left early. Our site was across from the office. What we saw was very clean. - Sue Varvil

Nice park to spend the night. The owner is very nice and helpful. Occasional trains but no problem. Slept good. Sites are back to back. Slide was very close to camper next door. - Chuck McC
Nov 2016 - $17.00
We stayed for a couple of days in a pull-thru mostly level site. Sites are side by side hookups, so you are close to your neighbor with space between the pairs on the other side. Laundry facilities with 4 washers/4 dryers at a very reasonable price. Owner came right over when we arrived and called, and was very nice. Quiet park and we slept well. We would stay here again. - User2260

This is a good gravel park with electric water and sewer. Very accommodating to over-night stays. Some Traffic noise but not bad. Good value and easy access. - Volunteer Rambler

This was my second stay at this park under the new management. The owner is a nice young man trying to attract business. I don't believe he has a website but is very responsive to a phone call or text. He keeps the park clean and it is very quiet despite the fact that it's just of the interstate. There are some long term residents but they are working people who are very quiet. Wifi was recently added to the park and it had laundry facilities. Each site has full hookups so there is no bathhouse. If you are passing through the area or attending a function at Harding Univ, I highly recommend this Campground. - TNknitter

This park is recently under new ownership. The young man is eager to accommodate short term stays. Most of this campground is occupied by long term workers but, after having spent several days, I can say that it was quite during the day and they are all newer rigs. This campground is located immediately off the exit so you can hear interstate noise but leaving our fan on helped that. While there are full hookups, this place is nothing fancy. The sites are gravel but it took very little to level our trailer. It doesn't have a bath house but does have a laundry. It is a great overnight stop or if you need to be in Searcy, just one exit away. Much more convenient than the other campgrounds an hour away. - TNknitter

Pretty spot beside the White river . We stayed one night. Back-in sites . Nearby trains overnight, didn't keep us awake. 50 amp power and water.
Drop toilets. Call in to City Hall to pay (cash/cheque) before going to park.
Crushed rock and paved sites. Area has fire ants.
It was fine for an overnight stay. $15 included tax. - Kings USA Travels

This is a bare bones park. Long dirt road to the park. All back in spaces. Good for one night. Would be a mess if it rained. - arkietraveler

This is a municipal park with no facilities but full hook ups. All sites are paved. Need to check in at City Hall. There is a sign on the approach road (2nd St) indicating a low height of 11'10". This is misleading as there are no height restrictions. We checked at City Hall and the Tourist office about this and they had no idea why it was there. I believe it may have been put there while some major bridge construction was being done on the new US79 bridge across the White River but is no longer valid. We are 13'6" and had no problems. There is a rail crossing which is quite steep on both sides but we didn't bottom out with a long 5th wheel so unlikely to pose any difficulties. People at City Hall and Tourist Center are very helpful. The campground is popular on weekend during hunting season so pays to call. - KiwiRVer

Mostly construction workers and long term residents. Train whistles all night long kept us awake. - lburas

Nice Owners. Clean & Neat little park. Good for a stay over or long term but not ness. for a fun filled family time. In other words, not a vacation spot. Has an older trailer park next door and though some of the travel trailers in the park look ancient, everything is clean, neat, well maintained, and safe. Only 10 minutes from Searcy and minutes away from a great place to eat called "Who Dats". - kap7893

My take: Fourteen sites. Nothing fancy; barely a campground. $20/night, $100/week, $375/month. No electric meters. Safety: no concerns - peaceful. Access: Take exit 48 off US-67 north of Searcy, AR. Go west to next intersection and turn right (north) on AR-385. Go 1.7 miles. When you see the street sign for "Mattie Lane", start slowing and signal a left turn. Big sign easily seen from the road. Short, narrow, unlighted, dirt/gravel road in "ok" condition which becomes a private driveway. Office: There is no office. Call (501) 593-9007 for a spot. Facilities: No facilities. Campground: Very close sites are all back-in; no tent area, yurts, or cabins. No overhead obstacles. Some sites are 30A, others at 50A but not both. Sites are gravel/dirt, almost level, no landscaping, with utilities at rear of your rig. Sewer pipe is about 3" above ground level. Water bib (sites 117 and 119) is in an enclosure below ground level which becomes a mini-pond when raining. No room for patios or picnic tables. Good satellite views. Ground fires not permitted. Adequate water pressure and taste. No propane sales. No cable TV. OTA TV found 24 channels. No Wi-Fi. Verizon coverage at "3-bars"; 4G at "1 bar". Distant railroad. Insignificant road noise, no aircraft. No recycle bins. Bug Report: Tiny black ants came up the water hose and electric cable. Runners: Roads not suited for running. Yoga: Ground surface not suitable for mats. Conclusion: If a spot is available, this is okay as a short stop-over. Most CGs in the area are filled with pipeline workers (April, 2017). - StephenK
