Western Arkansas

We were thinking about heading to SW Arkansas and working our way north, any good places to see and stay at with a big rig?

My wife and I stayed in Mount Magazine State Park in early June and it was wonderful, especially if you like hiking. We also stayed at Petite Jean State Park, but would only recommend staying there if full hook ups are available. All are full at Mount Magazine. Google each, perhaps you would like them. Each was very scenic and great hiking at both!

We also stayed a night at Lake Dardanell State Park on the way up, and one night at Crater of Diamonds State Park on the way home. We were VERY IMPRESSED with Arkansas State Parks.

Devils Den State Park South of Fayetteville is a great park but the road in is a little steep. Hwy 74 from the South is not good nor recommended for large RV's. Hwy 170 from the North is still steep but I have been there with my 40' without problems.

Very good point! If you decide to visit Mount Magazine, call first for "rv" directions!

Another place that I have planned on visiting (but haven't yet) that sounds really exciting in Eureka Springs is the Turpentine Creek wildlife refuge for big cats. They have 6 full hookup sites for $25. Check out their web site www.turpentinecreek.org

On my way to Eureka Springs Wednesday. Excellent site seeing, wonderful town with awesome restaurants. Staying at Wanderlust on Passion Play Road for the 4th year in a row. It is on Trolley route or a short drive to town.

Lake Catherine SP has some full hookups and we stayed there a couple of nights before heading up Scenic 7 last month. We have liked every SP in Arkansas we have visited so far!

Hot Springs ar is a good place between 2 small mountains.
Lots of lakes and campgrounds. Very scenic and lots of things
to do. Campgrounds and state parks (Lake Catherine) popular.
Historic town, horse racing in spring. Coy's steak house on lk
hamilton is good.
