Little Rock

Downtown Riverside RV Park
Little Rock, AR

Here we go again, getting from point A to point B.

We had an uneventful trip from El Reno, OK to Little Rock.
As you know, we usually are on our way somewhere,
with not much time to 'stop and smell the roses' so to speak.

I found this great little park on the Good Sam website.
We pulled into our 100'  pull thru site at

This is a small park, only 61 sites, but it's right on the
Arkansas River, with incredible views of the downtown skyline.

We chose a pull thru site for ease,
but the back in sites have the nicest view.

After we got settled in, we took a leisurely stroll across the
Clinton Pedestrian Bridge.
This bridge used to be the Rock Island bridge,
built in 1899 for the Choctaw and Memphis railroad.

It's a lovely pedestrian/cyclist bridge,
spanning the river, and taking you to the
Clinton Presidential Library and Museum.

We weren't all that interested in going into the library,
but the grounds are lovely.

There are some interesting landmarks in the river itself,
including this small lighthouse structure..


We were told when we checked in to the park
that we were in time for the bass fishing tournament.

There were quite a few bass fisherman vying for the title :-)

As we were getting set up, I also noticed another Vilano
pulling into the park.
Of course we went over and introduced ourselves!
We recognized each other's names from the Vilano Facebook group.

I took a picture of both our rigs from the bridge..

David and Debra Fuqua came over and enjoyed a
glass of wine and conversation.

It was nice to meet another proud owner!

Tomorrow we head over to the VanLeigh service center
in Tishomingo, Mississippi.
We'll be there for a few days, time to explore!


  1. You certainly makes the most of your short stops. Nice to meet fellow VanLeigh owners and compare notes. As if you needed an excuse to meet and share some wine... :cD

  2. We camped along that river but at a COE park. We added the Clinton Library to our short list of Presidential Libraries we've visited..... Eisenhower, Lincoln, Geo HW Bush and Hoover. As you say..... lots to do.

    Can't wait for your visit!

  3. That bridge looks pretty cool. We'll have to stop there and check it out. Have fun this week.

  4. Surprised to not see any pictures about the night time lights. The light show is something else. Whenever I am in the area we always stay at the Riverside Park.
