Overall Rating: Nearly Perfect
We stayed for two days at the North Little Rock KOA in Arkansas – Mar 2015, on our way up to Branson for KOA Boot Camp. Since we are new KOA Work Kampers, we try to hit as many KOA parks as we can. You never know when might be working at one!
We drove up in pouring down rain, but lucked out and got some beautiful spring weather while here!
Setting: Beautiful wooded setting. Lots of large hardwoods. We were parked in a premium site which offered a concrete slab, along with a nice little patio and table and chairs. It included a gas fire pit on a pedestal. Nice!
Because of the time of year, they were in the process of lots of upgrades. This is an older campground, but seems in good repair.
The pads are very even and spaces seem far enough apart all throughout the park to provide a little elbow room. It was nice to be in a park that didn’t put folks so close that you could look out your window into someone else’s.
Bathrooms were in great shape and very clean.
WIFI- The park offers it for free and while it might be different during peak times, I never had an issue getting on line.
Laundry- They have a nice laundry room available 24 hours a day. The laundry room was just off of a game room that included a pool table and small ice cream parlor. Plenty to keep you entertained while your clothes are drying!
Activities- this park includes a swimming pool, fitness center (for adults only), and sauna/hot tub. They also offer bike rentals.
To the back of the park are some nice rental cabins along with wooded areas to picnic.
Staff was friendly and available to help out if needed. I went ahead and purchased my KOA Value Kard while I was here which gave me an automatic 10% discount plus 500 points towards discounts on future stays.
Dog Friendly– This campground had not one, but two dog parks. Nice! One park was meant for the small dogs and the other was a much larger area. Both fenced in with trash cans and bags offered for doggie deposits.
The positives? Great park! We were basically just a two night-stand, but I could see staying here for a longer period of time. There was plenty to do nearby in downtown Little Rock.
In the area and looking for something to do? We recommend the Arkansas River Trail. The trail runs through Little Rock and North Little Rock, connecting 38 parks, six museums and 5,000+ acres of federal, state and local parkland. The loop is an impressive 88 miles, runs largely along both sides of the Arkansas River and is nicely paved.
A great place for hikers, cyclists, skaters, joggers; and beautiful views of the Arkansas River!
