HS Nat Park has a nice little creekside campground at Gulpha Gorge. A forested setting right on the east edge of town. $30 full hookups, inc 50 amp. ($15 for us old folks.)
The racetrack is on the south side of town. This would let you avoid some of that mayhem. Traffic isn't too bad from 1:00pm to 5:00 pm. Folks are at the track.

Garvan Woodland Gardens is worth checking out. Also the HSNP tour to a natural spring under one of the bathhouses.

I live in Hot Springs. Feel free to shoot me a PM if you have any specific questions. All the suggestions mentioned are worth checking out. But, for your stay, see if you can get a spot at Lake Catherine State Park. Full hookups and a great park. That's where we go for a quick outing. From there, you're 15-20 minutes from the center of town. Oaklawn is running, so it's worth stopping in for a corn beef and cold beer. Maybe drop a dollar on a race or two. Garvan Woodland Gardens are worth checking out as well. Last, but not least, stop by our little BBQ joint and introduce yourself! [url=]

I like to walk the Promenade. I usually start somewhere around Bathhouse Row.

DeGray State Park is a beautiful, quiet park with full service 50 amp sites,near Hot Springs.

But is you are in Hot Springs, you must "Take the waters!" The baths at any of the remaining bathhouses are by appointment only. It is a trip to the 30s style of pampering for both men and women. One side is for women and the other is side for men. Relax and enjoy for 2 to 2.5 hours.
