If not for the bee infestation in the water pipes at the forst site, the rating would be MUCH higher…
Overall, we had a good time camping here. The only problem was the bugs (mosquitoes, spiders, etc.), but that's a risk of camping. Our actual, reserved site was overrun with bees in the water tap, though. We told the rangers who set off to spray them, and who also gave us a new, slightly bigger site to set up our tent. This one had many mosquitoes under the picnic table, but no bees! And mosquitoes happen, so we dealt with it:-) The bathrooms were GREAT, and even Air Conditioned! The firewood which was officially purchased there and covered in spiderwebs took a LONG time to get burning, but once it was, it burned hot and well into the night. It was a good stay, with the exception of getting stung by the bees, but thankfully it was only me and not the kids who were stung.
Surprisingly empty, given the very few options shown to reserve online. Maybe many people cancelled?
One thing to note: the office has WiFi during open hours…otherwise, we didn't even have ANY phone signal in the area. Good while camping, so not a complaint…just an observation FYI.
This park is one of a kind. The campsites have plenty of space and the park was very clean. We saw tons of dear and birds. We stayed during thanksgiving so it wasn’t real busy. The kids loved playing in the leaves. We can’t wait to come back next year.
We stayed on a super cool double decker campsite in Loop A. This particular site wasn’t very level for a camper, but we made it work because we wanted this site! It would be super cool for several tent campers to use. We love the privacy of the suite style bathrooms! There is a creek that runs behind sites 1-22. We explored behind the single digit sites to check out the creek. Not sure how much water is in it during the summer, so it could be a mosquito trap!
We took a wonderful guided hike on a portion of the trail of tears. I hear the golf course is amazing, but we didn’t have time to check that out. The park offers several planned activities throughout the day. They also offer tennis courts and 2 different lakes to fish! Boat rentals are available, but we didn't look into any of that. They have wood for sale at the office.The Class AAA campground (loop B) was really nice. Loop C is a Horse Camp. The only draw back was that we had absolutely ZERO cell service (AT&T). Zero. Zilch. Nada.
We really enjoyed our Fall Camping trip here and love the proximity to Memphis. It was only about an hour drive for us.
Only an hour from Memphis, this campground is VERY nice - three camping areas, two lakes with boat rentals, 6 cabins, and a gorgeous 27 hole golf course. It is always well kept, the staff is pleasant and they have a small store at the visitor center.
The roads leading to this campground are fantastic for bikers, and the lakes have produced state record fish. It's well maintained, and has a lot of options. Not the biggest or best park in the state, but a good one, with plenty to do, and usually not very heavily populated, even by the locals.
Lots of trails and activities to do around the area. Wish we weren’t staying in a tent and would have come at a cooler part of the year. Was too hot to do anything at the beginning of July. Ended up leaving early.
VERY nice state park! There are 3 camping areas, two lakes, and a gorgeous golf course!
Nice campground along rt 65, surrounded by river on three sides. The campsites are not immediately next to the water, but still close enough to enjoy. You can see a lot with a very short walk and the drive is also pretty.
Yay: very peaceful place, some educational programs, kayaking, fishing, small hiking trails, quite clean
Nay: very open and sunny. The water can be dangerous so talk to the rangers.
Surprise: Go in autumn!! It’s open all year.
Bring your horse, bring your bike, bring your yak and pole, decisions, decisions. Camping areas and day use are more or less on seperate sides. Horse camping complete with covered stall area and trail. Camp sites are spacious and bath houses co located. Well maintained areas and friendly helpful staff.
There are nearly 100 sites here at Village Creek State Park. They are Spacious, paved and well maintained. The campground is spread out on plenty of land. 2nd largest park in Arkansas in such a tiny town. Many deer walking freely at night. Water and electric hookups, bathrooms and a museum too. They have concerts occasionally here in the big field. Cabins are great too above the rim of the lake. Many hikes to take here and so peaceful. There are stables and horse trails as well as mountain biking. The park is located in Wynne, Arkansas. I have visited here many times camped in RV and stayed in the cabins. The rangers are always friendly and it is close to my relatives in Forrest City.
