This is a National Park, full hook ups, creek, bathrooms only, less than 5 miles to Bathhouse Row in Hot Springs. Horse Race Track and Cosino.
Small quiet camp. Grassy and shaded along a creek. First come system. No reservations. Old but clean facilities. Access to hiking trails from the camp area. Good location to explore the town from. Dogs welcome.
We were so blessed to spend 14 days at this camp ground. They take no reservations it’s first come. My suggestion is to get there at 11:30 so if a site is available you can get it at 12:00.
We got a site right on the river it was heavenly . We have a clam was able to set it up right behind our rig. I lived in it and at night sitting there right by the river and seeing lightening bugs were so restorative to the soul.
Also it’s close enough to town if you are in shape could walk there or if you have a bike ride it into town.
Speaking of the town downtown was so quaint. I went to one of the bathhouses and it was a fun experience.
The sites are very spacious and nicely shaded.
With cities basically closing, and no work to go to… My best friend in life, and our dogs decided to live out the chaos in nature, away from mass society. We have a nice 27ft rv. So boondocking and dispersed can get tricky sometimes. But we make it work! We pulled into this campground by chance. Because it was the closest to us. The Hiking right here is amazing for day hiking with the family. Beautiful creek flowing directly behind our camper made for great soothing sleep with the windows open! Would definitely recommend this area for any campers looking to just enjoy it!
Drove through a rough part of town n roads, to get to park, a bit confusing to get there w GPS, arrived w no reservation definitely need one or arrive very very early in day.
Was full, not able to enter, turned around to find alternate park for night.
This small but beautiful campground nestled in the Gulpha Gorge sits along a creek with crystal clear water. Fall is probably the best time to visit, the leaves would be amazing!!!
In the summertime, I imagine families cooling off in the stream.
Restrooms are ok, bring your own toilet paper. Some sites are a bit close together for my taste.
Gulpha Gorge is beautiful. It’s close to downtown and close to Magic Springs. The one downfall is they are FCFS only.
Gulpha Gorge is a great campground. There are lots of good hiking trails in the Hot Springs National Park. While they do have nice restroom facilities, they do not have showers. The campsites are first come (not reservable). The sites could be a little better spaced apart, but it is still a nice campground. There are mountain biking trails and a disc golf course just up the road at Cedar Glades Park, which is nice.
I would reccomend this place to anyone who wants to just get away from the fast paced world we live in. Try it out and get away from the real world for a couple days!
