About Maumelle

Maumelle Campground offers 128 spacious campsites with electric hookups, along with eight large group picnic shelters. Amenities include a dock, hot showers, a boat ramp and playground.

Natural Features

The campground is set on the McClellan-Kerr Arkansas River Navigation System, a series of navigation pools used to help ships navigate upstream toward Oklahoma.

The Arkansas River is one of the Mississippi's largest tributaries, flowing 1,450 miles from the Rocky Mountains of Colorado, through to Kansas, Oklahoma and Arkansas.

Wintering eagles can be seen in large numbers along the Arkansas River. Most of these eagles migrate from Canada and the U.S. Great Lakes region.

Great Campground

We stay during the cooler months. Easy access to the river trail cycling.

Maumelle Campground

Camped here at a tent site. Clean heated bathrooms with a shower, and we had a great spot on the river! No complaints, good spot while driving through Little Rock on a road trip!

A favorite place to stay

Great park, inexpensive and great views. Lots of space, and lots of trees.

Great place to camp and climb Pinnacle Mountain

Pretty little park that we stay in to have a great weekend of hiking at Pinnacle Mountain. Pinnacle is less than two miles up the road. 

Hiking Pinnacle has great views and two ways up the mountain. The main trail up is well defined and moderate to strenuous. The other side of the mountain has a trail that is strenuous to difficult. That trail looks like most other trails until you get to the base. Then it is a “bouldering” trip to the top of the mountain. 

Maumelle has many good sites from tent to 50amp and some nice fishing opportunities.

Maumelle Campground

Stayed here on our way out West. Great spot, easy access, really peaceful and nice view of the river. Dogs swam in river, kids fished and biked. 20B is a great slot on the river and relatively secluded. Facilities looked fairly clean, but given COVID-19, we utilized our water and 30 electric hookup in the camper. Would stay again for sure. Recommended.

RV-Centric Suburban River Camping

Maumelle was full of RVs. I think we were the only tent-only campers. Being a Saturday night, it felt like a lot of locals and the mood was pretty lively. Our site was right on the river, pretty spacious, but not very private. There was no wood for sale, but our ring had leftovers, plus hot ashes- boo! RVs pretty much had string lights and music, but no generator noise since there is electricity. No-see-ums were bad once the sun starts to go. Bathrooms were clean, not covered in bugs, but short on TP. No soap. It seemed like there may have been a smelly, leach-field of some sort nearby. I think this is a convenient and nice spot, but you really have to be prepared and accepting of the openness and RVs. The host was very nice and proud of the park.

Better by the River

Get a site by the River on the east side of the park. Bathhouses clean. Crowded on Holidays since close to the City.

Maumelle Park

Nice park located on the Arkansss River with river access and lots of campsites. Sites are level with water and electricity and picnic tables and fire rings. Restrooms and showers.

Beautiful campground

This campground is beautiful, well maintained and has clean facilities for showering and restrooms. There are several dump stations which are convenient and maneuvering into your space is very easy. Each site has a picnic table, fire pit and grill. The Rangers were very helpful and provided all the information we needed for a wonderful weekend.

Clean and shady

There is plenty of shady spots on a first come first serve basis
