Aug 2, 2017 - Lake Village, Arkansas

Aug 2, 2017, Everything is finished so we get checked out. Bill is just under $500 but not a bad price for all they did. 5 days in camp came to $100, even that is cheap for full hookups with 50 amps. We head out towards Arkansas. Our park tonight is the Pecan Grove RV Park in Little Village. We are right on Lake Chicot. This is a Good Sam park, full hookups, 50 amps, for just under $40.00.

Off to Indianapolis

Nov 17, 2013 - Lake Village, AR

Last night we discussed our route. We decided to head northeast and try to parallel the interstate. This does not sound like us. Contrary to popular belief, we do check the weather. Northeast will take us toward bad weather. We head east instead. The roads are good. There is no traffic. We travel through forests. Although past their prime, the trees still have fall color. We see rivers and lakes with water in them. In fact, the entire state looks like it has had a lot of rain. We travel on a Civil War Trail and the Trail of Tears. We do...

Apr 7, 2013 - Lake Village, AR

4/7/2013 Sunday Hattiesburg, MS to Lake Village, AR 200 miles Pecan Grove RV Park Some travel days are not as pleasant as others mostly due to the poor road conditions. Today was one of those days when the road conditions make for a miserable day. About 10 miles before we reached I-20 in Jackson, MS the road deteriorated and was bad until sometime after we turned north on Hwy 65 in Louisiana. Once we were on the long two lane stretch running parallel to the Mississippi River the road smoothed out a bit and became much more pleasant. We...

Dec 2, 2011 - OTRA – AR - Lake Village

12/2/11 Wow! We traveled through 3 states today… out of Arkansas into Tennessee then to Mississippi and back into Arkansas. Of course, it took us almost 4 hours to do this as we traveled from almost the northeast corner of Arkansas to the southeast corner of Arkansas. Most of the drive was in Mississippi, right down US Highway 61 past miles and miles of farmland, through a couple of too-many-traffic-light towns, along about 5 miles of what could be called casino row, and finally, over a HORRIBLE Route 144 to Lake Chicot State Park, our home...

Apr 27, 2011 - Lake Village, AR

We see a little lightning overnight but the weather is not severe. It is raining in the morning. We take a drive around Lake Chicot. The road is high. The houses are on the high side. Each house has access to the water and a dock. We eat lunch at a café/bait shop next to the golf course. “Heaven, we’ll in heaven . . .” But I get ahead of myself. Our drive around the lake takes us to the Chicot State Park. It has a good museum. I learn a new word. Batture is the area between the levee and the river. We head north on the Arkansas side of the...

Apr 26, 2011 - To Lake Village, AR

We are both awake at 3:00 AM. It is very windy and there is lightening. I watch the sky out my window for a while. We fall back asleep and wake to a beautiful day. The shuttle picks us up at the RV Park and takes us to the casino for breakfast. The casino restaurant overlooks the Mississippi River. The water is high and flowing fast. We watch the barges go by. We watch the debris go by. We try our luck in the casino. This could be AC. We get a little play but it is not long before we are on our way back to the park. We head to the Vicksburg...

Nov 21, 2009 - Road Food Jackpot

Fred was so excited about our latest culinary adventure, he came right home and tapped out this little blog: You know how we're always stopping at these little shacks on the side of the road and sometimes enjoying surprisingly great food? Well yesterday we hit the jackpot – the all time best ever. We decided to do a little birding and exploring when we finally got up yesterday, but came out to find the passenger side front tire looking a little low. When I hit it with the pressure gauge it only read 30 pounds and it's supposed to be 60....

Sep 27, 2009 - Lake Village Arkansas

9-27 to 30, 2009 We stopped in Lake Village at Pecan Grove Campground. This is next to Chicot Lake; the lake is in a half-moon shape several miles long next to the Mississippi River. The campground is large with many Pecan trees. We are using this for a couple days rest since we have been on the go for two weeks. We plan to move on to Natchez on Wednesday for a night and then head northeast on the Natchez Trace. It was a very muggy 89 degrees when we arrived here, but yesterday was a pleasant 79 degrees.

Sep 13, 2009 - Biloxi, MS to Lake Village, AR

Alarm went off at 5:30am. Aargh!! Earlier start today but not as early as planned. Ron wanted to make some alterations to the tow dolly before departing. He went searching for a few parts, found what he needed, and went to work in the pouring rain. Yes, more rain. Rain all day for that matter. Then the day was shake, rattle, and roll for 300 miles. Mississippi and Louisiana are not known for their smooth, well maintained road system. Good news, however, the ole’ Duchess took it in stride. Bad news, the cats sure don’t know where to position...

May 19, 2009 - Branson, MO to Lake Village, AK

Our departure from Branson started with a trip to Wall Mart for an oil change (over 3,000 miles already). We were at the door at 0715, and all went smoothly. We were on the road slightly after 0800. We headed south through the Ozarks (reminded me of the Blue Ridge), a pretty, but very bumpy ride. The roads in Arkansas are narrower than most; guess it's cheaper to build them that way. There are few RVs on the road, and even fewer RV Parks. We drove far longer than we wanted, in hopes of finding a place to stay. Thought we might be in a Wall...

Fuehr's Tours 2009

May 6, 2009 - Lk Chicot St Park

Wed, May 6 Left Hot Springs in the morning and headed south on Hwy 270 and 65 to Lake Chicot State Park. Our campsite was right on the lake. This lake was part of the main channel of the Mississippi River, but the river changed course and left a "C" shaped lake. I can see why they call it the "Muddy Mississippi" But I noticed that most lakes and rivers in this area are muddy. We received the Sr price for our camp spot, with power, but it also came with ants of which we went out and purchased spray to keep them from coming inside. We only...

Dec 8, 2008 - Our Stay In Branson Ends

Our wonderful stay in Branson has come to an end. Last night Branson had a parade which had many bands and floats. Since the RV Park is a City park, it served as the staging area for the parade. We got to hear the bands and see the floats right from our motorhome. This started at 5:00 p.m. and bands and participants were returning to the park as late as 9:00 p.m.. It was quite a parade. We packed things up, double checked things before saying goodby to our neighbor RV'ers. They too were both leaving as well. Our drive south on the next leg...
