Alongside the Arkansas River

We pulled out of Atlanta, TX this morning at 8:45 and headed toward Little Rock, AR.  It was a beautiful day for a drive with smooth roads and nice scenery.

You can’t help but notice the hi-tech sun shield around our notebook.  In its previous life it was the top to a box of copy paper from Office Depot. 

We are in a truly beautiful Army Corp of Engineers campground.  I have talked to three different campers here and each one says it is their favorite and they come here often.   The campground is  Maumelle AR/Murray Lock & Dam COE Park alongside of the Arkansas River.  (Note:  location added in response to a reader's request.)

We took a walk on this nice path through the camp ground.

This is the camp host’s site.  I had to take a picture of the row of lights he made using small replicas of an RV illuminated from the back with a light bulb.  My RV readers will enjoy this photo.

We never get tired of looking at rivers or lakes.  This one is so serene.

There is not a lot of autumn foliage on display but it has been so long since we’ve seen any that this looks pretty good to us.

The other side of the river is so inviting.  We need a kayak.

Here is our campground for today.

Stay tuned.

  1. Nice campground and I like the high tech sun screen. Did it come with any warranty :)

  2. George and Sandy, which COE campground are you in? Ellie and I are looking ahead trying to make some plans as we head further south. Like many RV'ers, we love COE campgrounds.

    Enjoyed the pics, thanks for sharing.

  3. John & Ellen: It is Maumelle AR/Murray Lock & Dam COE Park. It may be also called "Maumelle Park", but you will find it under the first name on the recreation.gov site. It will also show it as full hookups, but there are a limited number of full hookups here. But they do have 30 and 50 amp with water and convenient dumps. Something new that we saw here was medical sites with full hookups that you can stay in if you are in Little Rock for medical issues.
