Large pull through. Lots of space. Very nice park. Full hookups. But... There is no-one on site so you have to phone them to come check you in. It is right next to the highway so there is road noise. IMPORTANT: It can be hard to find. From I-40 turn right at the first traffic light, between the Exxon and the McDonalds. Then the next right into the park. There are small blue signs but they are easy to miss. Google may lie to you. - sfrantz

Small park but great for an overnight stop. Host is very welcoming and helpful. No facilities but not a problem since there are full hookups. - Iamspoiled

This is a modest campground that we used for a simple overnight stay while on the road. I noticed a lot of trades vehicles encamped here; I assumed for skilled workers being mobilized far from home. The real gem here was the owner (operator?). My wife had been making advanced calls while we were on the road looking for a place to stop for the night. The owner's response was: "Hang on, I'm going to text you a set of directions from the highway" included in that text was a map of the campground and instructions that we could select one from a particular range. That was - and remains - one of the most helpful responses we've ever received. While we were there, there was a torrential rainstorm going on and the owner offered to drive down to pick up our $30 so we wouldn't have to venture out into the weather. He was a very friendly and helpful guy - and what the camp lacks in bells and whistles, in my mind, is made up for by the solicitous owner. This isn't any kind of elaborate campground - you're not going to bring the kids and hang out for a week I don't think. But for an easy, no BS, overnight stop, with a cheerful and helpful owner after a long day on the road you can't go wrong. A few other reviewers have mentioned the hair-raising exit and I must agree. It is abrupt - be forewarned. - WitmerWinnie

We were in 46 which was a back in site. We were there 4 nights and in December you are pretty much alone there. Occasionally another camper there for one night. It's very well lit. 46 is by the bathrooms there were not locked for the winter, by the playground and swimming area. There is some drive through traffic and some fishermen. We have Verizon and we had mostly one bar sometimes two but until we were at the visitor center we always had a little service. We also had a few TV channels by antenna. Had the major stations, had to turn the antenna and re-scan frequently. Lots of deer so drive carefully. The park is very scattered out. From where we were it took about 1o minutes to get out of the park. We are from the area and knew we could take the Hwy 1 bypass to Colt then 306 (I believe) to the park turn off, less curvy, much better route. It's very quiet (again it was December, two weeks before Christmas). I wouldn't camp in that spot in warm weather, we don't have small kids so the playground being right there might be a bit much. Most campsites in the B loop have lake views. Lots of dumpsters in the lower campground, just cans in the B loop. - AR Traveller

Similar to our other encounters at Arkansas State Parks, Village Creek SP is terrific. The 13 miles from I-40 were very slow due to narrow, winding, freshly graveled roads and a surprising amount of traffic. The interior roads are in excellent shape but long and winding. Our site, B46, is a back-in with full hookup and 50 amp service. It is a cement slab with plenty of length, but required some side to side leveling. Be advised that the sewer is at the back of the site, so an extension may be needed depending on your rig configuration. This was an overnight stay only, so we didn't get to enjoy all this park has to offer. So peaceful and quiet. Can you believe tennis, golf and TWO lakes? There is an impressive equestrian loop that we toured due to a wrong turn. No AT&T cell service. Our only real negative would be the aroma of an animal carcass near our site. - Scott & Nancy

Very nice park. 13 miles off I40, at Forrest City, between Memphis and Little Rock. Park sits in a valley between two ridges. Absolutely NO CELL service, and it was wonderful! We talked and played cards and had a good time, knowing it was for a short time. Restrooms were new. They are rebuilding all the cabins. Sites with sewer are $10 more. Small lake, but access is down steep hill. - Mike from Bama

I can not believe that they are a Good Sam Campground this is the worst camp ground that I have ever stayed at. no service what so ever. the first place I tried to plug in did not have electric and box was about 1 foot off the ground had to lay down to plug in. The next one electric was ok but water line was about 8 inch off ground and pointing down had hard time hooking up water, it was a pull though full hook up never did find the sewer hook up. if you need a place to stay you would be better staying at a rest area or Walmart - LannyH

At this park you are checked in at the hotel. There is no building, no showers, no trash cans, no bathrooms, not sure the water ran and no caps on dump site. Was told to park wherever. Bugs and weeds horrible. Expensive for lack of any amenities. Does show Good Sam but definitely not up to standards. The clerk in the hotel was nice but did not say anything about the area. There is a hotel next door and a truck stop across street. Noisy. - BarbaraJo

We had been driving 9 hrs and I was exhausted. Knowing that we would have about 30 more minutes before Memphis parks, I pulled into this park. It is actually a bit of a scary looking area and directly across from large TA truck stop. The price was laughable and the young men shrugged off my dismay. But, I was exhausted so we stayed. Looks like they are trying to make things better as there were intermittent concrete slab pull thrus that looked newly poured. Only 1 camper and it looked like a fulltimer that worked in area with ladders etc strewn about. I plugged in and, although my surge stated it was ok electric, running the TV, microwave, and ac, tripped my fuses. I would NEVER stay here again. But for a night of sleep, it'll do. Hopefully safety through eve prevails. - CJ Jay

This is an excellent small park. The visitors center was exceptional with friendly and helpful staff. The small museum was educational. There was a variety of programs scheduled throughout the year. Because of our schedule we were unable to take advantage of any of these events. It is peaceful and very beautiful, but especially so this autumn when fall foliage was in full swing. We stayed at Beech Point Campground in site 10, a Class AAA site with water, 50 amp hook up and sewer. This was one of several pull through sites. This site was level concrete with a gravel sitting area. Just like most sites it had a metal fence around the back. The bathhouse was centrally located with four facilities. Each room had some heat, toilet and hot water for the shower. We had plenty of space for our 33ft toy hauler fifth wheel, two vehicles and our fishing boat. Almost all of the sites would have worked for us because whoever planned the layout made sure you were able to get your RV turned around where you had plenty of space to back in. The space between sites seemed just right, not too close. The rangers came through the park several times a day. We came to the park to get away and to do some fishing. There was a nice easy accessible concrete boat ramp which made it easy to launch and take out the boat. Our problem was our main boat motor was to large for the Bear Creek Lake, we had to use our trolling motor all week. We did understand the regulation. There were two courtesy docks provided that gave you lake access. We did catch several large catfish on jugs. One of which weigh over 20 pounds. There was not much to do in the area but we did come to fish and to get away. We plan to come back. - Debra D

Newer State Park on Eastern Border of Arkansas. It is ~ 1.5 hours from Memphis. There are not many sites in the CG, but they are all beautiful - and FHU! We were in space 4, which was on a peninsula in a lake. Plenty of space between sites. Cell and Dish were fine. There is a nice hiking trail in the CG and another up at the Visitor Center (which was a 20 minute bike ride through forest and meadows). We were also able to ride our bikes for a couple hours on the "Great River Road" which passes through the CG. Visitor Center is well done and all staff we encountered were very friendly and helpful. - Davishouse2

14 full hook-up RV sites. Some back-in, some pull thru. Sites are level concrete with a gravel sitting area. Some sites are a little close, but in general they are spaced fairly well. Site 14 (back-in site) is the nicest site in the campground. It's more private than the others and has access to it's own peninsula complete with bench seat for viewing the lake or fishing. This site, like some of the others, has a metal fence around the back of the site. Someone did a nice job of spacing the utilities out so they don't interfere with slide outs, however, the sewer connection is just "stubbed up" with no threads or bayonet connection - (why?). You'll have to use the resident rock to hold your sewer hose in. Water pressure was OK at 60psi. The campground is flat and bicycle friendly. There are nice hiking/biking trails in the park, and a small swimming beach is adjacent to the campground. There are 3 tent sites in the RV area (if you like improved bathrooms), but a better pick for tent campers would be one of the 8 tent sites in the Lone Pine campground down the road (in the same park). Those are much more rustic and private. Although access to the campground is not controlled, it seems secure and park rangers were seen several times during the day. Signage in the park is good, all except the small one that tells you to check in at the Visitor's Center before setting up, and the Visitor's Center is about 4 miles before you get to the campground. Most campers just get a note from the ranger to come back to the Visitor's Center. There appears to be an active schedule of nature programs by the park. - Bama Camper

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

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

Check in was NOT friendly. Not a bit welcoming. Essentially you're in a casino parking lot with full hook-ups. No wireless. Sites are level and open. Not a tree in view. Certainly worth the money. If you're there to gamble it works. It is away from all but one additional casino. - M and S

The physical aspects of the sites (long, level cement pads and adequate space between sites) continue to be the best thing about this park. Like most sites, ours was satellite friendly. We didn't bother with the cable TV. The lack of in park personnel and Wi-Fi are the big negatives. Not having personnel in the park also causes the poor quality trailer bathrooms to not get cleaned often enough. - Jerry S

This RV Park is well maintained. There are full hook ups and the roads are paved as well as the sites, which are level. There is a grill and picnic table at each site. The grass is cut and the picnic tables are metal and in good shape. There is plenty of room to walk your pet if you have one. We have stayed here in the past and played at the Casino so our sites were compensated. - Bosshoss

Checking in is a challenge, the RV office no longer exists so you have to troop up to the hotel check in. My site was fine, back in but easy to navigate. The trash was piled up everywhere, not good. - RVDolly

We've been coming to this RV park for many years. This year was quite different. The RV park office no longer operates. You must park your RV in back of the casino and register at the hotel desk. Trash pickup was a problem everyday ( we were there for 8 days). Everyday we had to call the hotel to get someone to pick it up. The park was far from full, but each site leaves their trash out, so all those trash bags baking in the sun for hours wasn't good. The fields surrounding the area were being plowed and the dust was so thick, it left all the vehicles in the area with a thick layer of the stuff, and we couldn't sit outside without being covered with dust because of the wind. This went on for the majority of our 8 day stay. I went to the pool/gym area everyday, and everyday I had to go to the hotel desk to get someone to unlock the area even though it was well past the opening time of 8am. The sewer dump on our site clogged. When we called to report it, we were told we had to move to another site to dump. We were able to dump enough to keep from having to move off the site. Pulling out on our last day, we went to the main sewer dump by the gate. To our dismay, this dump was clogged as well. We had already hooked up our vehicle, so we maneuvered our RV very close to an empty site, connected two sewer hoses and ran this to a working sewer dump. So very disappointed in what used to be one of my favorite RV parks! I must say, however the sites are spacious and level and very clean. The wi-fi, cable, and satellite reception was very good, as was the 50 amp and water. Check your sewer before setting up!!! Pull around the back of the casino to park while checking in, or if you arrive early or late in the evening. There's plenty of room back there. There's no grilling at your site, but there are plenty of paved gazebos with picnic tables and grills very near the sites. You will have full access to the indoor pool and gym, and the casino during your stay. Ask for pool access card when checking in. Will have to think about our trip next year... - Summrbrz
