Hot Springs National Park KOA
We stayed at the Hot Springs National Park KOA for a weekend. This is a pretty park in the woods, on hills with a nice little pond, but don’t let the name fool you; this is not part of Hot Springs National Park and is NOT the National Park Campground (Gulpha Gorge Campground)
The RV spaces at the Hot Springs National Park KOA are very close to each other, sections separated by hills, valleys to give some sense of space. Picnic table and fire pit at each site. We had a nice little fire (fire pit very close to neighbor’s RV though).
The Hot Springs National Park KOA Campground provided a $5 shuttle to the Hot Springs National Park (in downtown Hot Springs) and KOA’s weekend pancake breakfast smelled very good (already had breakfast supplies when we arrived so we did not take advantage of the camp breakfast option). The also offered a shuttle to the horse tracks.
Great TV channels selection (got to catch up on episodes we missed while traveling and watch the new episode of The Walking Dead) but very poor Internet speed. Saturday evening 6ish until Sunday morning at 9 there was no Internet at all, before and after that it was barely usable.
The bath house was clean enough and plenty of hot water. No where near as nice as Leisure Landing RV Park though. No fitness center, although there was a game room and pool table.
First night we had a very loud kid / family next to us, and Saturday night the teenage campers were up late partying.
While a very nice park (all the RV parks we visited in Hot Springs area are very nice), at $41 we found it to be overpriced (as are most KOA’s). We decided to stay another night in the Hot Springs area before moving on, and we chose to return to Leisure Landing RV Park.
