Campgrounds around Razorback stadium
« on: April 19, 2017, 09:20:16 pm »

I apologize because I think this has been discussed in the past, but I do not know how to search through older posts. Is there a campground around the stadium for travel trailers besides the Road Hogs park? My family just purchased a new trailer and want to spend some extended time around a couple games this year (we live in Misery (Missouri) now). Might even camp during one of the "big games" and watch the game from the trailer but still enjoy some tailgating.

Thanks in advance for your help.  :razorback:

There's several KOA locations around Yosemite that, for me, are the apex of camping.

It is close to Beaver Lake a big Corp of Engineers reservoir with the associated campgrounds they normally have. Probably about 6 or 8 large camping areas. All are about 30 minutes to an hour away. Also about three state parks within that same time frame and one National forest area camp ground at Lake Wedington. That one and the State Parks fill up fast however. There are some private campgrounds in and around the area.

Pratt Place has a few spots that will accommodate your trailer. At one point they had no water/power hookups but I think they've remedied that since. Good place to tailgate and hangout and they do free shuttles down the hill to the stadium and back.

Sorry, I threw up in my mouth a bit. Not at Yosemite, but KOA as the apex of camping.

Especially in Yosemite, you gotta strap on your backpack and head out into the wilderness.

We camped at Devils Den for all home games for five yrs straight. Great park and beautiful scenery/trails for Sunday! Reservations are limited. We would call and reserve our spot as soon as the schedule came out. We would drive up from Benton after work on Friday evening.  If you have kids they have a nice pool and paddle boats, too. Absolutely beautiful when the leaves change.

I've tried there before and could never get a site during a game weekend and that was trying to book in advance a little. I'd be surprised if they aren't already booked up.

We camp extensively in the NWA area.  Times to the exit for Razorback Road (towing...your truck will make better time) from various local campgrounds we stay at:

Devil's Den SP 30 minutes give or take.  DD is a great area, especially campground "E".  It has full hookups.  Make reservations early, however.

Lake Fort Smith SP 45 minutes up old Highway 71.  Our favorite spot, very new, and has full hookups in 20 sites, water and 30 amp in 10 more.  Dump station available.

Withrow Springs SP (Huntsville)  45 minutes via Hwy 412 and SH 45.  You will have to drive thru town to get to the stadium.  Nice campground, as are almost all Arkansas State Park venues.  Full hookups at all sites.  Also very new, the old sites were washed away in a flood a few years ago.

Horseshoe Bend  45 minutes via I49 and old Highway 71 into Rogers.  It is a Corp of Engineers park, cheaper than the State Parks.  Good campground.  A few sites have water, none have sewer, though there is a dump station.

Hickory Creek  30 minutes via I49.  Electricity only.  Also a Corps of Engineers park. 

OK.  Devils Den, LFS and Withrow have limited Cell coverage.  Streaming a game will be iffy.  LFS does have good cell coverage if you are on AT&T.  HB and HC are good to go as far as cell coverage.

Edit:  Be prepared to navigate narrow roads and steep hills to get to these great spots.
