Campground Review: Mission RV Park, Russellville, Arkansas

Mission RV Park

We stopped for the night at Mission RV Park in Russellville, Arkansas. It was a very short drive off exit 78 on I-40. The campground is run by the owners, who live on the property. They have quite a few permanent residents here, but they don’t allow residents to accumulate a lot of junk on their sites, so the campground looks very nice.

The campground has 45 RV sites, with about a third of them being pull through. The sites that back up to the lake are for campers who stay for more than one night. Rates for a 30 amp site are $27 per night plus tax, making it $29.43 for up to four people on the site.

Our site was quite level on the pad

The site we stayed on had a concrete pad that was very level, but but the concrete pad was very short and probably wouldn’t accommodate a longer RV. While the site itself is long enough for larger RVs, it gets out of level off of the concrete pad.

View of Lake Dardanelle from the activity building

While there is a view of Lake Dardanelle from the campground, there is no boat access or easy fishing access from the campsites. There is a Corp of Engineers boat ramp nearby.

The laundry room

The laundry room has two washers and two dryers, and an iron and ironing board for use by campers. The showers are also in this building.

You are only two miles from Arkansas Nuclear One, a power generation plant on Lake Dardanelle, and they even tell you that on their website:

What they don’t tell you about is the train tracks that run along side of the campground. The trains run on a very regular schedule and can be quite loud as they rumble by. I would however, recommend this park to anyone who is traveling thru the area on I-40.
