This is a great campground for an overnight stop. It is easy on/off the nearby interstate with long pull thrus. Since the interstate is nearby, noise might be an issue for some. Site was long enough and level enough that we could stay connected and we had room for our car we were driving separately. We only hooked up to electric but water was available at each site as owner had the water connections protected against the cold weather. Owner was not available but instructions for where to park and a phone number we could call was posted. Owner came by sometime later and left his card with a thank you message. There are nearby amenities including fuel, grocery, restaurants, and a Walmart. We would stop here again. - roadking

This is a great overnight place. No significant amenities, although they do have good wifi. But not having many amenities is not always a bad thing. For a reasonable price ($37) they have easy to access sites, grass islands and good wifi. Just what you would want for an overnight. I rate this as an "8" not for its amenities, but value for the money. - rpfix

This is a very nice little park. Easy on and off I-40. The owners are very nice. Our site was a long pull thru and very level. The park is clean and well kept. There is a restaurant and grocery store within walking distance. There was a little bit of highway noise but not bad. We would stay here again. - cgsmom

I initially booked for two nights but had to cancel the first night due to weather conditions at my previous location. They did not charge for the first night that I was not here. Nice facility, very few campers, but is is 18 degrees. I stayed at campsite #49, a pull through and did not have to disconnect. - 66 Mustang

Love Arkansas State Parks! We were just passing through and called on a Friday night and surprisingly the park was very empty. This park is off Interstate 40 a good 10 miles or more, not bad roads but it is a drive. They were changing their computer systems and apparently that diminished their usual volume of campers. All the spots in our area were back-in but we saw a lot of pull throughs on our way to our section. They have all the amenities and the spaces are long with extra space for cabanas or tents and a concrete pad with picnic tables and fire rings, very spacious and shaded. The cabins at the park are lovely and most were booked. I can see bringing a non-camping friend along for a great experience. The beach at Lake Dunn was a work in progress but it wasn't inviting. They had just graded it with heavy machinery - before and after it rained. There were fisherman there but no swimmers. We didn't see the Beach at Lake Austell, maybe it was better? Very good experience we would definitely stop again! You rock Arkansas Parks! - WindRiver

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

The only reasons we continue to stay here is that it is cheap and, if you are headed south from Memphis, there aren't any decent RV parks between here and Vicksburg. My reviews from last May and September are still accurate. As usual, we had a level, pull through, FHU site that was satellite friendly. There is no in park staff or Wi-Fi. The big negatives are check in with the hotel, having to go to the hotel lobby for Wi-Fi, and small, dirty bathrooms. - Jerry S

Nice long level pull-thrus with full hookups. Have not checked out laundry or restrooms as we have our own. For the price you can't beat it. Not much to do in the area but geocache, gamble, and eat. - The Gunny

Nice Park, but site 62 is positioned to not be able to follow the exit. Park is very new. - Jim and Lynda

This park continues to be a disappointment compared to what it was just a few years ago. The fact that there have only been about 10 RVs in this park the last few times we have stopped here indicates others feel the same way. From the closed park office forcing you to check in at the hotel to the poorly maintained bathrooms, laundry, and garbage containers, this park has only the reasonable cost going for it. The sites are mostly FHU, back ins that are small and not level. The sites are satellite friendly so I haven't tried the cable TV. We lost the internet connection several times during our stay. The bathrooms are inadequate for this park and were not clean. The small laundry cannot handle more than 2 customers. Typical of the area, there is no recycling. - Jerry S

Clean sites, small grassy area for each site. No picnic tables or fire rings - wjs225

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
