“Lovely Little Campground ”

Reviewed Nov 14, 2017

Overall Rating

Gulpha Gorge really is a lovely little campground. We love the 1st come 1st served model (thanks Gulpha!) and had no issue finding a site at around 10am on a Sunday morning in November - even with a 40' rig. During the week we were here (early November) there was always a site available. Road noise can be a bit much if you're lo... more

“ Scenic and nice ”

Reviewed Aug 06, 2017

Overall Rating

Nice area with scenic views. Water that flows down a steam that you can relax in and rock climbing. Just beware of the crawfish that might pinch your toe. There are toilets but no shower areas for those who may need them.

We arrived to a "No Vacancies" sign. The precious camp host saw us and gave us an available hostess site. We were so grateful. The campground is very peaceful with the Gulpha creek running along side it. Our children (10 and 5) thoroughly enjoyed playing in the creek. (Rocks on the bottom of the creek are extremely slick.

Previous commentators have done an excellent job pointing out the assets of this beautiful campground. I simply want to add that they also offer a half-price discount to holders of the nps senior pass. Our site was next to the creek, which was fantastic. It was level, paved, and provided us with water, electric and sewer. As has b... more

“Creekside camping at its finest! ”

Reviewed Jun 12, 2017

Overall Rating

There are a few things this small campground has going for is. First is the creekside location. Even if you can't get a site right next to the creek (although they are clearly the best), you can still hear the creek from all over the campground. Second is the proximity to numerous trails - even one that leads right into town. Finally, ... more

We arrived on Thursday about 1. There were plenty of sites available including 4 along the creek. Site 36 is level and deep enough for our 32' motorhome and toad (but just barely). 50 amp/water/sewer at all sites but some don't have fire rings. Clean bathrooms but no showers. Easy access to NP downtown, hiking trails, supplies etc. Som... more

“Loved the creek, Hiking Trail into Hot Springs”

Reviewed Jun 08, 2017

Overall Rating

We arrived on a Thursday and there were about 15 sites to choose from. I think we got one of the best, right on the creek and by a little water fall too. The camp hosts call into the rangers at 10 and 4 and give them the number of open sites left. We called on our way in and got the good news, though I would recommend having a p... more

“A small campground that doesn't take reservations. Sites next to the creek are really hard to get. We arrived on a Wednesday and they were full. ”

Nice access to trails. You can hike into Hot Springs which is nice! The highway next to the campground is noisy and the sites offer little privacy.

This is a comfortable national park campground. There are actually full hookup sites! This is the most "RV park" feeling national park campground we've ever stayed in. And it's a great location. 3 minute drive to Bathhouse Row, or a 1.5 mile hike on the Dead Chief Trail. We opted for the primitive sites to save some money. Dry campi... more

A few sites along a small creek and the rest arranged along a couple parallel loops. The real attraction was either a 1.4 mile hike or a short drive into the town of Hot Springs to tour the bathhouses or grab coffee or a nice dinner. The town is definitely set up for tourism which can go over the line towards kitsch, but the history of... more

We had an amazing stay at Gulpha Gorge in Hot Springs National Park. The setting in the gorge makes it feel like you're 100 miles away from town when it's actually just a few minutes drive.
