Kirby Landing COE park Kirby, AR (45 min west of Hot Springs) is awesome...beautiful lake, restaurant at marina, small motel and the sites are huge, flat and we love it so much we have stayed 14 days one trip and stayed the whole month of October the second....and we used our Golden Ager card for the half price discount both times. The lots are huge and above flood level the sites are full hookups. No cable and can't pick up any tv channels but with a satellite you're good to go. Cell phone service is great. Really really pretty place. Oh yes, new bath houses...no laundry at the upper loop (newest) where we stayed but the old loop does have a laundry I think.
We went to DeGray year before last (not camping) visiting friends who were camping and the sites were so weedy it was scarey to even walk from the truck to the campers....I think they said they hadnt had time to weed eat but they forbid you to weedeat your own site.
We camp in N. Louisiana most because we are only 13 miles from the N. Louisiana border. Lake Claiborne State Park is great. We have a site reserved in March. We camped there twice last year and once the year before (we got our first camper late in the season). We also love Jimmie Davis State Park near Jonesboro/Hodge LA. Beautiful lake....nice sites and a place at Claiborne AND Jimmie Davis to tie our party barge up close to the camper.
