This is a city campground that is part of Burns Park. The park complex has soccer, baseball& softball fields as well as tennis courts. There is also an equestrian and archery area. Boating, fishing, hiking, and biking are also a part of this park. The bathhouse looked like it had been recently built and was clean, although one of the two showers did not work. We had a W/E site, but I think there were FHU too. They did have wifi, but we never could get it to work, and our cell signal with Verizon was not great. We did have a picnic table and fire ring.
Some sites have sewer hookup, all have water and electric. This campground is in an area of town that really isn’t the nicest. When I got to my campsite there was trash in the fire pit and in the grill. The sites are pretty close together. The campground manager was nice and helpful. There are trails and a park nearby. The bathrooms are very nice!
Great location, walkable to downtown. Good WiFi, great reception. All facilities like bathrooms and laundry are completely closed due to covid so make sure your tanks are empty, propane full, and clothes clean. Overall, we both thought this was a great and unique “campground” with full hook ups and a great price. It was nice to be parked in a place that didn’t require driving to explore.
General: Understandably, there are not many camping options in urban areas so Burns Park is a nice option. Although located in a city park, the campground is privately owned. Reservations are made by calling and the staff will assign you a spot.
Sites/Facilities: When we arrived, we found we had been assigned Site 7, which would have had us sandwiched between huge RVs with virtually no privacy for our campervan. We asked if we could switch and since it was a weekend, there was only one other option available – Site 43– so we took it. Site 43 is a wooded site with one site close by on one side but only trees on the other, so it suited us much better. There is a total of 44 sites, and they are varied: tent only, 30 amp/water/no sewer, 30 amp/water/sewer, 50/30 amp/water/no sewer, 50/30 amp water/sewer, and 50 amp/water/sewer. Some pads are paved, and some are gravel. Most are level but be aware that Site 45 is decidedly NOT level.
Bathhouse: There is one bath/shower house centrally located which requires a code to enter (although this was not activated all day Saturday). It was clean during our stay but there was no indication it had been cleaned while we were there (most people were in RVs and used their own facilities). There was plentiful water for the shower and the water pressure was ok.
Activities/Amenities: There are roads and trails (some paved and some not) in the park and I enjoyed a nice run to the covered bridge and then along the Arkansas River.
Conclusion: Whoever said this was a quiet campground, however, must have worn earplugs. It is located near I40 and you will hear road noise as well as occasional trains. My only other complaint is that the picnic table in our site had seen better days – it was old and saggy with lots of moss growing on it. But for a city option, this suited our needs for two nights of exploring the Little Rock area as well as Hot Springs.
We just stopped as we are passing through. Bathrooms and showers were clean. Smaller campsites with lots of trees. Could use some updated picnic tables but not bad. The rest of the campground was well maintained. Looked like there was a lot to do for longer stays. I’d definitely use this place again.
Kid friendly. Great upkeep and sites that are easily accessible. Playground, splash pad, and pool. We were not able to access the pool because of the time of year, but we will definitely be back in warmer weather. Staff super friendly. Not one complaint.
