Clean and well located!

Really clean and well maintained. Bathrooms were cleaned few times per day and had A/C! Spots were generous and most had a covered picnic table. We had plenty of space, 50/30/15 amp service and water at all the sites. Great views of the lake and Bull Shoals Dam, just about 5 miles from Bull Shoals State Park on the White River for some world class trout fishing. The lake has all the fishing you might want, bass, crappie, and walleye are abundant.

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.

City Campground

Stayed at this KOA so we could spend some time in the city. It is what you’d expect from a campground beside the interstate. It was pretty full, there were sparse trees, and we could see everything our neighbors were doing. The bathrooms were very clean and the showers hot. The only downside was the traffic noise from the interstate, but that was to be expected.

Great diverse area!

Love this spot! There is so much to do in this park, I love it. There is golf, disc golf, dog park, baseball and softball fields, cabins, archery, amusement park, and more! It’s very family friendly and pet friendly so everyone can enjoy the fun. It is very clean and fairly quiet. It also isn’t far from society and stores, so if anything is forgotten then it’s not a big deal to go grab something. I go to this park at least once a month and always find something new and fun.

Gorgoeus park with fun activities

We visited Cane Creek over Memorial Day weekend. The sites were level. We did have several fire ant hills that we had to deal with and quite a few red wasps. We were able to watch numerous birds (pileated woodpeckers) and even saw a swamp rat swimming in the lake (resembles a beaver with a skinny tail). There are water and electricity hookups with a bathroom close by. We rode bikes so it didn’t take long to get the the restroom. You can rent kayaks for very reasonable. Do it! The water trail is unlike any I have seen. Don’t miss out on the hiking trails, but watch out for ticks!

Our first camping trip was a great success. We camped 2.5 days at Cane Creek State Park in Star City, Arkansas.

Our Review: The camp sites were very nice, all had either 30 amp or 50 amp electric hook ups and water. The electricity was super convenient with having the space heater in the tent. Most of the sites have nice views of the water too! It was a little too cold to fish but from what we’ve gathered from the visitor’s center they have some decent fishing and lots of other activities! Cane Creek offers several options like fishing, boating, canoeing, kayaking, hiking, biking, etc. There was a boat dock specific for campers closer to the campsites. We were very pleased with the bath house which was really clean and fairly central to all campsites. We will definitely be back when it warms up to test out the fishing!

It is no more !!! We drove by it June 14, 2019 at 2pm and it is currently being Bull Dozed over...

It is Leveled as of June 14, 2019 at 2pm… Don't know what is going in there…

Not meant for big rigs.

Sites are poor, at best. Concrete is broken and gravel is used to fix problem. Gravel was new and not packed…almost got my rig stuck. Electric hook up was okay…water and sewer were in need of repair.

Cane Creek

We are from Star City so we have visited the park often but finally decided to camp there and it was so nice. The campgrounds are nice and the visitors center offers fun activities for the kids.

A quiet and pleasant place

I grew up in Star City and have been to this park many times. It is not a breathtaking place, but it accurately portrays the nature of south Arkansas. I have seen ducks, deer armadillos and eagles live here as well. The playgrounds are good. The pavilions are clean and the AC works well. Halloween brings thousands of visitors each fall. The campsites all decorate for the holiday and everyone wants to see it!

Great Quiet Place to Stay

We stayed here with our dog and the place was super friendly. It felt like being in the forest. It had many trees that provided a lot of shade. It’s secluded but just minutes away from everything you could need. The park is clean and quiet and was very very enjoyable.

City views!

Great parking with easy access to Little Rock by walking across the bridge. Bathhouse isn’t very good so plan on showering in your RV. Good pavilion space for hosting events.

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.

Clean and convenient to downtown Little Rock but nothing fancy

We stayed there for a couple of nights. Lots of pull through and back in sites, some are long enough you can put two rigs in (and they're are hookups for two as well!)

It's nothing fancy but you can take a walking bridge across the river directly into downtown Little Rock.

Totally decent place in little rock

Just passing through, but was a nice campground. Looked like it was well taken care of. Barely talked to the staff. Late checkin and early depart for me. Cable and wifi worked.

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.

Great if you want to be by a lake but not too close to the water.

Easy to get into most spaces, flat long, asphalt RV sites. Quiet. Dock is just down the hill from the RV spaces.

Army Corp park

Small Park but has a brand new shower house

First to Review
Beautiful

On the Arkansas River, it’s a clean and beautiful park. Rv spots on all on the rivers edge. Plenty of room. Price for rv camping was very good.

Clean and shady

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

Just okay campground

We stayed here to try out our new camper without going too far from home. It's not the most beautiful campground, but it's nice enough. Some of the sites have full hook up and others don't. There is not way I'm aware of to make online reservations, but you can call or stop in. There is a disc golf course and mountain bike trails in the Burns Park as well as a golf course and several other activities. The staff was nice and the facilities were clean.

Nice campground near Pinnacle Mountain

Maumelle Park is a nice campground located on the Arkansas River. They have some water front sites and several in wooded areas. The campsites are a little close together and there aren't as many trees as we typically like for privacy and hanging hammocks, but it is a nice park. They have several day use areas, a few playgrounds, and basketball courts. We stayed at site B23, which was just okay. The restroom facilities are nice. They had 2 dump stations. They do not have designated tent pads, but do have a fire ring and picnic table at each site. The campground is very close to riding trails and Pinnacle Mountain which is a fun area to hike.

Moments From Historic Pine Bluff

Just on the opposite side of the highway from historic Pine Bluff and within the same area as their Nature and Conservation area this reasonably priced camp is pretty nice with water front views.

The only downside no tents!! It really is ashes because the views here are some of the best I found in Pine Bluff of the river.

This is a Good Sam campground and thus meets a certain type of amenities. Had they accepted tents it would have been a much higher rating (probably a 4)

Fresh Water, Dump Station and 20 amp hook ups available.

Fire Ants!!

Stopped off hoping to stay here when traveling out to the Louisiana Purchase State Park (which does not offer camping because it is a swamp area) this is the closest campsite in the area so I was very hopeful.

Arrived and began to survey the site which is pretty basic only to realize it has a severe ant Infestation!! There is no way as a tent camper I could have stayed here because of this.

The camp itself is pretty basic with gravel pull ins and few amenities. It is a city operated site (that is who you pay).

So unfortunate that I had to find a place further away to stay instead of being able to enjoy this one. Still very worth the trip here perhaps if you have a contained unit as it is closer to the state park than any other.

No Tents & High Prices

I had just been combing through some of the back roads of Arkansas and was looking for a good place to relax for the night and found this site. Nearly $40 and it not only did not accept tents but it also seemed to be pretty basic for even an RV. I wouldn't ever stay here for that cost considering what I saw. Small, limited amenities and nothing really of significance.

Overnight Stay

Good for an overnight stay. Access from I 30 was easy enough from West/South bound Lane. Only 12-14 Pull throughs. Seems to be all used for overnighters. All are long enough to park w/o unhooking the tows.

Convenient location but not ideal for tent campers

Located within a 20-minute drive of most Little Rock homes, and just about five minutes from Pinnacle Mountain and Two Rivers Park, this campground is conveniently located for local recreation. The campsites along the Maumelle River have a pretty view, but tend to be already held down by RVs like ducks in a row. There are some nice sites on the other side of the road, even if they offer little in the way of privacy. If you might make use of the large field for a ball game or kite flying, for instance, you could choose one of the sites that back up to it. Among the downsides, you can't escape urban markers like fencing, lights, and noises at this campground (there is a marina close by). However, you can get outside, enjoy a fire and some fresh air, with easy access back to the grocery store or restaurants as needed.

Ultimately didn’t stay here

This is 100% an RV Park next to I-30. I didn’t see any showers, so for $37.50/night it was too steep for me.
