“Great campground”

Reviewed Aug 01, 2018

Overall Rating

Really nice campground. Great park. Lots of trails.
Wish I had known about the overflow parking sites. Cheaper and with a lake view. That said, the regular sites are great. Quite spaced out so you don’t have close neighbors.

“Beautiful ”

Reviewed May 20, 2018

Overall Rating

I don’t know how I lucked onto a lake spot, but all the sites in A loop are supreme. Paved, level sites with an established tent pad plus lots of room away from your neighbors. Very peaceful & laid back. Bathrooms clean, a little air to cut the humidity & free, hot showers. Lake Water is peaceful, looks to be fun fishing, easy kayaking... more

“Lakefront overflow parking”

Reviewed Apr 14, 2018

We stayed in the C loop the first night planning to spend a night or two and continue our journey west. But the hiking trails were so beautiful, the bike path so much fun for our kids and the park so clean we decided to stay longer. It was the beginning of Easter weekend though and they said the park was fully booked. Then a nice man c... more

“Beautiful park with an amazing waterfall!”

Reviewed Jun 12, 2017

Overall Rating

The first thing to know about this park is that there are two distinct sections. The first is an open loop with views of the lake. Here you will find concrete pads, full hook-ups and very little privacy (those lake views are awesome though). The second section is a series of loops set deep in the woods. These sites have electric & wat... more

“This is a jewel”

Reviewed May 06, 2017

Overall Rating

We booked our stay at Petit Jean with no prior information about the park, but when we arrived, we were blown away by the beauty of the park. Our site faced the lake, and our stay was quiet, peaceful, and definitely one of the best of 2016. The approach to the park is a steep climb from the river valley from Morrilton, Arkansas, but... more

“Best campground of our trip!”

Reviewed Oct 11, 2015

Overall Rating

Our 7,000 mile trip took us through a variety of places to stay, from dispersed camping, national parks, national forests, and state parks. Petit Jean was the nicest of all the campground we visited. The park is sited on the top of a high plateau. The road up the plateau is steep. It's worth the drive. You kind of feel like you are on... more
