Question i-40 Arkansas sights

Driving through Arkansas next month & would like to know if there is anything worth stopping for along i-40 to see? Not seriously interested in knowing about every tourist trap along i-40, but a few wouldn't be ignored.

If you click http://www.rvparkreviews.com/regions...t_Springs.html
you will find a lot. Gorgeous old town with great history and sights. The bath houses. Horse racing too. And a fun Gangster Museum. All the big baseball greats like Babe Ruth and all the big gangsters would carouse there.

We stayed at Cloud Nine, but Catherines Landing is also nice.

Are you trying to stay on I40? In that case you'll miss Hot Springs. Anyhow, Arkansas is a beautiful state and you'll enjoy the drive if only for the scenery! Have fun.

There are no tourist traps... Hardly any towns... Be very careful on i40 between Little Rock and Memphis,,, construction.... In North Litte Rock there is a downtown rv park on the Arkansas river. You can walk across the bridge to the Clinton Library. Having lived in Arkansas for 60 years it is a beautiful state, very natural, not large cities.... Hot Springs is great ifyou are towing, not a rv driving town.... But beautiful lakes...

Arkansas I-40

While traveling I-40, you might want to stop at Toad Suck Ferry Park and spend a night or two, nice park on the Arkansas River, rates at 10 bucks a night if you are over the hill, lol just 30 miles west of Little Rock, and about three miles off of I -40 well marked. ENJOY!!

Clinton's Presidential Museum is in Little Rock.

We've visited all the Presidential Museums except for the newest Bush Museum in Dallas.

If you like to visit Winerys you could try Wiederkehr Wine Cellars at Exit 41. They have an RV Park, if it should be close to stopping time.

Several Core of Engineer Parks located along I-40. Most are good camping sites for $10. May have electric only. Some are located at Lock and Dam so you can watch the river traffic.

Little Rock has the Clinton Library and a neat downtown area if you want to kill some time.

Check out Petit Jean State Park atop Petit Jean Mountain. The views of Arkansas river valley great from the east end of the park near Petit Jean's grave site.

Beware the construction between Memphis a Little Rock. I had the luck of going through on Memorial Day weekend and was okay. People I met up with told of two-four hour waits in traffic. Yuck.
The park in Little Rock on the river is very nice. Stayed there a couple of years ago. On the east end West Memphis is Tom Sawyers Mississippi River RV park. We got there just after it reopened (being under a few feet of water for a couple of weeks...) No real amenities, but from the front of my rig to the water was maybe 50 feet. Nice to sit and watch the barge traffic go by. Highly recommended. (smoke a cigar to chase off the skeeeters. )
