Check in staff were super helpful and our site was nice....39' "just" fit but once parked we were fine. FHU all worked well and we slept very well. This was our first trip to Hot Springs, but definitely not our last. Highly recommended park and location is great. We camped at Hot Springs National Park KOA in a Motorhome.

This park gets high marks for friendly staff and a convenient location. However, the sites are very close together; the majority of sites are back-in sites on a steep drive, with little room to park a tow vehicle. We camped at Hot Springs National Park KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Let me start by saying this is our second visit to this park in the last 2 years. Also, be aware that the park is doing a significant makeover to the tenting area. To its credit, this park is a KOA trying to adapt to the realities of "big-rigs" and the accompanying toads. The approach into the campground is steep and the mandatory office checkin is reminiscent of what worked for RV parks 20 years ago. We have a 33' 5th wheel and many of the turns are tight even for our rig. I will say that the staff are very friendly and helpful. We stayed on site L2, which was very narrow (like all of section L) and relatively short. We stayed hooked up as our gravel site was reasonably level, however, many of the other L sites were not level and required a great deal of parking gymnastics to keep from blocking the narrow access roads. The sites are very level - we could put out the slides, but not our awnings. Our camping neighbor started a fire in his campfire ring which was situated about 6 feet from out slide. We will look elsewhere the next time we are in the Hot Springs area. We camped at Hot Springs National Park KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Overall Rating:

This campground is not within the National Park but is only about 15 minutes away. If you want to camp in the woods, this is the place for you. RV sites and cabins are in various clusters throughout the heavily-treed park on the side of a mountain. Satellite will not work in most sites but there is a good selection of cable channels. Within the clusters, sites are packed closely together with no free space. Whoever designed the park did not consider things like a place to hook up your toad or parking at the club room (which is a long way from many parts of the park). Interior roads are asphalt with curves and steep grades. Some sites appeared level, others, including mine, had a significant slant. Escort led me to my site and helped me park; I was backed up flush against a steep hillside, making it impossible to get to the back of my motor home. Wi Fi worked well. Good breakfast available at the club room on weekends. We camped at Hot Springs National Park KOA in a Motorhome.

Tight, tight roads for a 40 footer, up and down. The entrance is STEEP. I was in a site called the Garden. Friendly staff greeted and escorted me to my site. WIFI good. Located right outside Hot Springs. I had to use some blocks to level out left to right tilt. 5 bars on ATT and Verizon. Trees on most sites, on mine, so no satellite but cable had plenty of channels. Nice pool. We camped at Hot Springs National Park KOA in a Motorhome.

Very nice KOA. Great service. Everything clean and neat. Guided to our site. Close to downtown and all of the attractions. Winter so we didn't use the pool. Didn't use the restrooms or showers but would have. They were quite clean. Nice laundry. Nice store. Just a nice KOA, maybe the nicest one we have stayed at. We camped at Hot Springs National Park KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Some tight turns in and out, but 41' MH and towing no problem. Pull through sites have no foliage, mainly used by satellite folks. If you do not need, get a back in closer to office, nicer portion of park. We camped at Hot Springs National Park KOA in a Motorhome.

Beautiful, woodsy above average appear for a KOA. The terraced sites were pleasing and afforded more privacy than many KOAs where sites right next to one another. The dog park had a rustic feel with a wood fence. The fence was very low so if you bring a large dog that likes to jump, be careful. The dog park was muddy and part of fence splintered. The staff fixed it right away. The staff were very friendly. We really enjoyed staying here. Not too far from the Hot Springs NP which was fascinating with its restored bathhouses, and lovely town with restaurants. This RV park highly recommended. Hoping dog park fence redone with higher fence, mud covered with gravel or grass. We camped at Hot Springs National Park KOA in a Motorhome.

We stayed in Site D26 which is down by the duck pond and across from the bathrooms. It was fairly level, good electric and water. Would’ve given it five stars however, the bathroom/shower is not handicap or wheelchair accessible. The showers are very tiny. The drain running behind the showers definitely needs to be cleaned it looked disgusting. Otherwise, nice place. We camped at Hot Springs National Park KOA in a Motorhome.

2nd time staying here but probably won't stay here again. Water pressure in the section we were in was terrible. Called office to complain and they sent out a nice young man and lady who proceeded to tell me it wasn't their fault it was the City's fault. No city would have water pressure below 20 lbs. We were lucky enough to be there during a Motorcycle Rally. Nothing like several Harley's riding around the campground at 1:30 am gunning their engines to hear them pop and hollering. When we complained to the office they said there was nothing they could do about it because the bikers come every year. We won't be staying here again. We camped at Hot Springs National Park KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Changed to this KOA on the fly based on good reviews. We were not disappointed. Very personable staff, sites were level, clean and had the best water, electric and sewer set-up of any place we have ever camped. You need to see it to believe it. Free shuttle to and from Hot Springs. Good camp store and the free water from the on-site spring is delicious. We camped at Hot Springs National Park KOA in a Motorhome.

This was our second time to stay at this park. It is typical of most KOA's, with good facilities throughout. There are a mixture of pull-through and back-in sites. Our site (D-8, a pull-through) was easier to enter than to exit because of a tree that limits your pull-out room. I don't recommend it for larger 5th wheels or motorhomes. The park has better pull-throughs available - ask when you check in. They have a nice pool and a playground for younger children. They also advertise a fishing pond, but in reality, it's a muddy duck pond with a fountain in the middle. The office can provide fishing rods but you have to furnish your own bait. All fishing is catch-and-release. One of the nice features is Grandpa's Grill, which provides a full breakfast menu Friday-Sunday morning. Wifi and cable reception is good. The park staff are courteous and professional. Access to this park is very easy. I recommend it for either short-term or longer stays. We camped at Hot Springs National Park KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

This park is close to Hot Springs National Park and is only a few miles from the Oaklawn horse racing track. The Magic Springs water park is only 1/2 mile away and provides great summertime water activities. They also have various rides (roller coaster, etc.).

This is a great place! We extended our stay because it was so nice. Everything is pretty close together so its easy to run out for bit to eat or activities. The bath houses are about 10 mins away and so much fun. Staff was great. We didn't have to level anything and lots of different kinds of spots to choose from. The hill to get to the campground is a bit tricky. Had to move the gear shift into 1 just to get up it, but not too bad. Lots of big 5th wheels and class As made it up with no problem. We camped at Hot Springs National Park KOA in a Motorhome.

Office personnel were extremely polite on check-in, and we were guided to our pull-through spot. Ours was far from level, and there was little room to park our truck after setting up our 33' 5th wheel. 50 amp service is good, but internet service drops repeatedly, and we resorted to our iPhone hotspots for reliability. This park is extremely crowded with RVs, tent campers and cabin dwellers. We stayed two nights, and it was OK, but we will look for another park if we return.
