Rate reflects average of PA and veteran discounts for our length of stay. Only 2 negatives are the large gravel rocks at the site and no fenced dog run. Both my wife and I tweaked our ankles on the big gravel. Not a really big deal, just something to be aware of. Sites are "buddy" sites, but if you aren't traveling with a buddy, you don't get one. Instead you get both sites, making one big site. First thing I noticed when I drove into the site was the very nice looking picnic table. Had a lovely stained finish, coated with urethane. No fire ring, but I'm sure I would have gotten one if I had asked. Plenty of places to walk the dog, but I like letting them run off leash so they can tire themselves out more easily. Owner came around to warn us of potential bad weather coming and told us where to go if we wanted to hunker down in a block structure instead of the RV. Luckily the storms weren't as bad as predicted, but the warning was a nice touch. Quiet short-term sites away from the road. WiFi worked well in the RV. Easy to get a sat signal. Good water pressure and no issues with connecting, especially since you have the option of connecting to one of 2 places (buddy sites). Not much in the town of Shirley. Gas station, car wash, one cafe. Closest town of size is Clinton, about 15 miles (20+ minutes) away. Great motorcycling roads here (twisty and hilly). Would definitely stay here again if in the area. We camped at Golden Pond RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Stayed here for a week over Labor Day for family get-together. Since all the family is in and around Greer's Ferry it was perfect for us. The owners are a very nice young family who bought the park fairly recently and they take a lot of pride in it. They are constantly upgrading the facilities so it is getting better every day. All hookups were fine (water pressure was about 65 psi). I said I was in site D1 and D2. They gave me the site next to mine for free so I wouldn't have a close neighbor! The only thing that keeps it from being even better is the one thing out of their control. It's that the park is a little remote, it's about a 25 minute drive to Clinton for supplies. Last thing is DO NOT rely on GPS. it will route you south on 16 and it is a narrow, twisty, hilly road. There is an alternate that is WAY better - call for directions. I would stay here again in a heartbeat. We camped at Golden Pond RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

There is a small grocery store called Craven's a few miles down Hwy 16 towards Greer's Ferry that has really excellent quality meats. I bought a prime rib roast and a porterhouse and they were excellent.

A little too remote for my wife's, taste hence the 8, but a wonderful little park. Very quiet and neighbors are friendly. New owners did everything possible to make our stay enjoyable. If I find the need to be back in this part of Arkansas again, I will be staying here. We camped at Golden Pond RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Very friendly and helpful owners. Reasonable Wi-Fi, nice pull through sites. Very quiet and excellent for one or two nights (or longer if you like fishing!) We stayed here with PPA. We will come back. We camped at Golden Pond RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

A great stop for passing through. Rustic bathrooms but clean. Bathrooms had 2 showers and 3 stalls. Pressure was good and water was hot. Cable TV was fuzzy. Wifi was good for checking email (probably sat). We camped at Golden Pond RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is as good as it gets in this part of the world. It is a nice park to do what you need to do in the area. Some longer term people and many passing through. We were here for a week and will be back for another week for work reasons. The owner can not be outdone for friendly and helpful service. Everything worked well and was in good shape. We camped at Golden Pond RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is an older park and the owners are in the process of redoing a lot of things. Very friendly staff.restrooms and showers were clean. Has small laundry room. Also has a lot of perms,most keep their sites clean. We stayed on the hiway side,quiet at night,but lots of traffic during the day. Wifi good in sites close to office. We stayed here on an RPI membership. We camped at Golden Pond RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice little family park. Owners were very friendly and helpful. The park was laid out so that if you used a pull through sites you faced your neighbors. We would stay here again. We camped at Golden Pond RV Park in a Motorhome.
