Watch the tugboats float by at this hidden gem campground

Downtown Riverside RV Park in North Little Rock, Arkansas, is a hidden gem campground on the Arkansas River. The park is right on the bank and with our pull-in site, we are able to watch the river flowing by out our windshield! We are just waiting for more barges and the tugboats to float by.

The park is next to the Clinton Presidential Pedestrian Bridge and has access at the back of the park. The bridge spans the Arkansas River, and goes directly to downtown Little Rock and to the Clinton Presidential Library and grounds. There are a number of interesting museums in the downtown area, a scenic trolley stop and numerous catfish and rib joints.

The Arkansas River trail is considered an outstanding hiking and biking path. It borders the park so you don’t have to walk far to get started.

A hidden gem campground

This hidden gem campground has 61 sites with 50-amp electric service, water and sewer. They, thankfully, are not price-gouging RVers and have remained at $33 for a river site and $30 for the others. It has great WiFi, a clubhouse, laundry facilities and a guest pavilion. The entrance and gated walkway are closed at night. The sites that face the river are pretty tight (think RV parking lot), but the amazing view more than makes up for it.

Enjoyed our stay at this park! The headquarters for Heifer International is behind the Clinton Library. The gift shop is fabulous. We were there at end of 2021 and due to Covid the tours had been cancelled. Could still visit the animals outside at the farm.

We’ve stayed there as well and really enjoyed it. Wonderful walk across the bridge too. Watching the colored lights on the water at night is just as enjoyable!

We stayed there and enjoyed the river, the submarine museum just a walk away, and the changing lights on the bridges at night. Very nice. Just be SURE you know where the 1 entrance/exit is so you dont get trapped on the wrong street.

We’ve stayed there several times. Very nice and peaceful. Great farmer’s market just across the river. Clinton library too, if you are interested.
