Depends upon what type of park you are looking for
COE parks are plentiful. Many have water and electrical hookups. Sewer is usually a dump station.
Examples: Maumelle Park near Little Rock. Some sites right on the Arkansas River front. Reserve early for the choice sites. Some walk ups available but back in the woods.
Toad Suck park near Conway. Also near the Arkansas River.
Narrows or Dam Site parks on Greer’s Ferry lake etc.
https://www.recreation.gov/
KOA Parks. One in North Little Rock

Tom Sawyer Park in West Memphis. On the shore of the Mississippi River

State Parks such as Petite Jean State Park near Morrilton Arkansas, Mount Magazine State Park (highest altitude point in Arkansas) in Logan County,
plus many others https://www.arkansasstateparks.com/a...ations/camping

There are many other possibilities too. Lots of trees too.

We stayed at the Springhill COE park, which is near Barling this past spring. I will have to say its not one of the best COE parks around. Go to RV parks and reviews for more information. After that being said I would go back.

One of my favourite sites to stay at is the Downtown Riverside RV Park in North Little Rock. There are no trees but the views are unreal. You are right on the River between the bridges, and every night you experience a light show when the bridges light up. Close to the walking bridge and Clinton Presidential library. Lots of walking and bike paths.

The Eureka Springs area is also great! Lots of interesting things to do and see in the area. I don’t know when it shuts down, probably already, but the Passion Play is fantastic!!! I’ve seen the play at least 10 times and enjoyed it every time!!! On the main drag in town is 2 Dumb Dames Fudge Factory, you have to go there, best fudge you will EVER try!!! Lots of places in Ridleys Believe it or not there, the only church you enter thru the bell tower!

All of the campgrounds I have been to in AR are wonderfull. If your in the NW part and central part of the state - Lots of trees

The SE part (Delta area) not so much.

Do a search and some sites allow you to see pictures of the campsite that you want to reserve - that way you an see if the are wooded.

I also use google map and zoom in on the campsite.

All of the suggestions above are awesome. I also like Heber Springs / Tumbling Shoals (Greers Ferry Lake). Very clean lake and they dont allow much buidling on the lake (so very few houses and docks).

Lake Degray state park is also beautiful. Any of the parks around Greers Ferry are good.

I worked at the National Guard Armory in Heber Speings for about 3 years. Heber Springs and Greenbrier and both great little towns. I have two of my kids that live up your direction in Pea Ridge and I get up that way visiting or going to Hogs games often.

We have a 2018 Thor Freedom Elite 30FE. Fingers crossed but have not had any major issues with it yet. I will update my profile when I get a chance to take pic of motor home.

Petit Jean

My wife and I love staying at Petit Jean State Park. Great RV sites with full hook up next to the lake.

Hope you will try it.
