Lakeview, Arkansas- Corps of Engineers Park

There is a beautiful camping area in Lakeview, Arkansas. It is a Corps of Engineers Park on Bull Shoals Lake off route 178. Great water access, kid friendly (playground), sand beach and very nice bathrooms with all the amenities including A/C in the summer. Fills up pretty fast, so you may want to make reservations well in advance. Hope this helps.

Most of the CGs on Lake ouachita are nice! The best campground in the state (Albert Pike) was closed due to the huge flood. I had been going there since i was born (30 now) and my dad since he was 8 and he's mid 60s. So it was sure sad to see it go.

Lake Catherine and Lake Dardanelle are favorites with us. There are some around the Hot Springs area that I have seen but not stayed in. I don't think you can go wrong with an Arkansas State Park.

Just got back from Maumelle a few hours ago (@ Little Rock)...it is a COE park right outside of Pinnacle Mountain....I would highly recommend. Very neat, clean and well kept. We were right on the Arkansas river and watched the barges going by was fun! It is about 5 minutes from town, groceries, eating , etc....but felt like it was way out of town.

Check out Petit Jean SP, DeGray Lake SP, Devils Den, Bull Shoals and Lake Catherine.

That should keep you busy for a while....

Arkansas has come of the nicest and cleanest state park campgrounds in the country. Do a google search of Arkansas State Parks and you will find all of the info you will need. I grew up in Arkansas and have camped at Village Creek, Lake Catherine, Lake Degray, Lake Ouichita, Greers Ferry, and a ton more.

WHOO PIG SOOIEE!

I totally agree with you all that mentioned Lake DeGray. Didn't RV camp there but we spent a "picnic" day there a few years ago and it is definately on our list of stops when we take the Jayco that direction.

I have reservations for Devil's Den and Petit Jean State Parks in May. I noticed on the websight they say to avoid coming into Devil's Den via 74 if towing a large trailer and suggest coming in via 170 to avoid the steep switch back road on 74. To those who have stayed in Devil's Den, would that same warning apply to a 31 foot class C? 170 will be a bit out of my way, but if 74 is too hairy..... what say you?

I'm going to Devil's Den in June. I'd like to hear of problems with 74 towing a 35+' 5th wheel.
