We visited another incredible Army Corp of Engineers park today. We always try to visit any that are nearby. With Jerry's Golden Age pass, we can stay at them for half-price. We would have stayed at this one while in Arkansas, but it didn't have Wifi. I am transferring a lot of data from my old computer to my new one this week, and I had to have good Wifi.

The park is located about 12 miles from Little Rock. We loved it and highly recommend if you are in this area.

Paste of info from their site..

Overview

Maumelle Campground sits along the beautiful Arkansas River, offering boating, fishing and birding for outdoor enthusiasts.

Natural Features:

The campground is set on the McClellan-Kerr Arkansas River Navigation System, a series of navigation pools used to help ships navigate upstream toward Oklahoma. The Arkansas River is one of the Mississippi's largest tributaries, flowing 1,450 miles from the Rocky Mountains of Colorado, through to Kansas, Oklahoma and Arkansas.

Wintering eagles can be seen in large numbers along the Arkansas River. Most of these eagles migrate from Canada and the U.S. Great Lakes region.

Recreation:

The Nuttall Trail runs through the park, offering visitors hiking opportunities. Anglers will find a selection of crappie, bream, hybrid bass, white bass and more.

A boat ramp is provided for campers to enjoy the river.

Facilities:

Maumelle Campground offers 96 spacious campsites with electric hookups, along with eight large group picnic shelters. Amenities include a dock, hot showers, a boat ramp and playground.

Nearby Attractions:

The Pinnacle Mountain State Park is just two miles from the campground. The 13 mountain trails here range from easy to strenuous, and each one promises captivating scenery.
