sayoung, we love the area around Huntsville/Berryville. We used to travel through that area going to Eureka Springs. Hope you can have your reunion, we usually have one in Iowa during September that is on hold until we get the go-ahead.

Sorry to hear that it's not for out-of-staters. I'm not going to abandon my lifelong Texan status to move to Arkansas, as nice as it is. I'll spend my money in Oklahoma state coffers until Arkansas decides to allow out-of-state coughers. (COVID humor)

Have any of you looked at the COE parks in Arkansas. Granted they may not be in the area you are interested in, but there are several of them to choose from in the state. And generally speaking, we have never been to a bad COE park.


Our 2351D Phoenix Cruiser, Jack, has turned us from campers into RVers and loving it!

Some weeks ago ALL COE parks were closed and I have not heard of them being opened. I agree, they are a great choice.

It appears that Arkansas is now allowing out of state campers. Those form New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, the city of New Orleans, and all international locations are being advised to self quarantine. Here is a link:

Thanks dallassteve I have been a little busy and was going to update but got behind. Yes, out-starters can use State Parks, but I recommend calling ahead to the specific Park to check on availability. People from "hot spots" will be turned away. Of course "hot spot" changes every week. Lodging at cabins and resorts is limited to 3 day stays over the weekends. Come on down the weather is fantastic! I am not sure of the status of COE parks, I am assuming they are following State guidelines.

I was trying to reserve an Arkansas State Park last night on their website. I never got to a page where I could pick my spot. It was more like just fill in your name and credit card info and pay for a night. All the other states I've tried have a map where I can click on the site I want (if it's available) and then pay for it. Do you know if Arkansas works that way?

Anyway, I may be going back to Texas. They sent me an email saying I my qualify for more unemployment due to the COVID panic. If they're giving away free money I may have to actually be in Texas to collect it and I can't pass up a deal like that.

sayoung, if I were you, I would still call the park and confirm you reservation. This virus stuff has muddled up a lot of things around here. It might save you hassle later, just saying from a retired State Employee......??

Allways double check our reservations as we usually set this trip up late Dec early Jan. Our get together is still in MAYBE mode. There is a new private park that's still convent north of Forum we could use if Arkansas changes its mind
