Interstate 40 is a major east-west corridor across the nation. It dissects the state of Arkansas, entering the state near Memphis, Tennessee, on the eastern border and Fort Smith Arkansas on the western border. The total distance across the state is approximately 300 miles and will take you from the flat lands of the delta to the hilly areas of the Ozark mountains. There are several quality RV parks along the route to provide a rest from the road.

KOA Parks along I-40 in Arkansas

There are three KOA parks located along I-40. None of these are located in the eastern half of the state, so if you prefer a KOA park you will need to stay in central or western Arkansas. The North Little Rock KOA is located just off I-40 but is directly adjacent to I-430, so you will have some traffic noise. Take the Crystal Hill Road exit off I-40 and follow the signs. The park is nice with pull-through sites up to 95 feet. Lots of mature trees, Wi-FI connections and cable TV are available. Farther west you will find the Morrilton park convenient to the interstate and close to some of the best parks in the state. This park offers weekly and monthly rates for those looking for an extended-stay location. Take exit 107 onto Highway 95 and then turn left on Kamper Lane. Near the Oklahoma border you can stay in the Alma KOA park, which is just 2.3 miles north of I-40. Located near Fort Smith and Van Buren, there are several interesting day trips available while staying in this park. To find this park, take exit 13 off I-40 and travel north 2.3 miles.

Central Arkansas

Little Rock is the state capital and the major population center of the state. If you are looking for just an overnight stop off on your travels or wanting to explore the capital city, the NLR RV park is in a prime location. Located on the banks of the Arkansas, you can catch a trolley to the Bill Clinton Presidential Library, the Little Rock River District, Farmer's Market and the North Little Rock Maritime Museum. You also are only a trolley ride away from minor league baseball and several fine nightclubs and eating establishments. Take I-30 south to the Broadway exit and you are within a block of the park.

Also in Central Arkansas is the Burns Park RV park. Take the Burns Park exit off I-40 and follow the signs just a short distance. Burns park has a great deal to offer and the RV park is surrounded by heavy woods. There are several nearby trails as well as great golfing, horseback rides and playgrounds. You can watch deer grazing along the side of the road just up from the campsites. You will need to navigate a twisting park road to reach the campsite, but it should pose no major difficulties.
