This place was full, even in the middle of October!

Noise level and overall “feel” of the park?
The owner, Jim, was fabulous and worked hard to please
everyone.  He led us to our site upon arrival, and helped us in
every other way he could.  There was no noise from the
perimeter road, and even within the campground it was fairly
quiet considering how busy this place was.

Road and site access/type?
Paved from the street, then gravel interior roads and gravel sites.
The pavement part was in bad shape, but the gravel was nice.

Spaciousness/levelness of sites?
Many sites were “back-to-back” to the utility box, so spacing
was very tight for those sites.  Others were for individual units.
The “levelness” varied wildly; our site was pretty good, but we
saw others where the front wheels of coaches were 4″ off the
ground!

Utilities and WiFi/cell reception?
The 50-amp electric was strong, water pressure just adequate.
Most sites were full hookups.  The Verizon signal was strong.

Picnic table and/or fire pit?
Picnic table yes, fire pit no.

Facilities – bathrooms/showers/laundry room?
Spotless, big points here!  The bathrooms and showers were
super-clean, and the showers had hooks and benches, which is
a big plus as far as I’m concerned.  The laundry room consisted
of 3 washers, 4 dryers and a nice folding table.

Pet and/or kid friendly?
I wouldn’t say it was particularly friendly for kids, although
there was a pool which was sparkling clean all the time.  No
other kid activities and no kids that I noticed.  Not really dog
friendly either – no large areas open or grassy places to take
them.

Bike/walking trails nearby?
This was the other downside here.  We had to drive to a “real”
park to do our walking.

Grocery stores and other services nearby?
The historic area of Eureka Springs was just up the road, and
folks could take the shuttle right from the campground if they
didn’t want to worry about parking.  There was a grocery
store within 3 miles, and other services were also in the area,
although this was a small town without “big box” stores.

Comments:
I would love to give this park a higher rating, but site spacing is a
big deal for us and most other people so I couldn’t do it.  Besides
that major “ding” it was a nice place and had everything we
needed for an enjoyable stay.  The historic section of town was
just a few minutes away, with a great restaurant/shopping
district – not to be missed if you’re in the area.  Be sure to stay at
least a couple of days, and consider taking one of the guided
historic tram tours that they offer at a reasonable price.
