We spent a week in Hot Springs at J & J RV Park, with the main goal of seeing the National Park and Bathhouse Row. Although, there is also mini-storage on the property, the campground area felt completely separate. It is also in a convenient location to quickly get to the National Park or out to other parts of town for grocery shopping or other errands. When we arrived, the owner met us at the office to check in. JJ spent some time telling us about the area and giving us some restaurant recommendations. Since it was a bit into the off season, the park wasn’t too crowded, so we were given our choice of spots. Steffanie took a quick golf cart ride to see what was available and picked us out a nice spot right along the stream that runs next to the property.
The only downside to the spot we picked is that we were nestled right between two other RV’s and didn’t have room to put our awning all the way out. It was well worth it because the view out our bedroom window in back was the stream falling over some rocks. We loved listening to the stream every night as we went to sleep. We were lucky enough to have some warm weather during the day so we spent some time working outside overlooking the flowing water.
We did notice that the National Park in Hot Springs has a campground with full RV hookups as well. If we knew that ahead of time, we may have made a different choice. Many of the National and State parks don’t always have electric, water, and sewer. Even after seeing that campground, we were completely satisfied with our stay at J & J RV Park. We would recommend it and would definitely repeat if we ever went back to Hot Springs.
