Campground Review 

This park was very well kept during our stay. The pool was a great place to relax after exploring Hot Springs during the hot summer while we were there.

Our site was close to the main roadway. However, there was very little noise, and it was not an issue for us at all. It was well kept and large enough for all of us.

The staff was more than helpful and very kind They gave us some great tips for visiting Hot Springs National Park and the surrounding area.

The biggest benefit in our opinion is the shuttle that runs from the KOA to the entrance to the National Park. It is a quick 10-minute or so drive, and drop off and pick up is very simple.

Our Hot Springs National Park KOA Experience

The Hot Springs National Park KOA was a two-night stop over for us on our cross-country trip to Big Bend N.P.  

After a 400+ mile drive from Nashville, we were happy to set up camp here. After a good night’s rest, we spent the next day exploring the city of Hot Springs, and the National Park.

Hot Springs National Park is one of the most unique parks in the NPS system. It is situated right in the middle of the city. In addition to its famed Bath Hosue row, there are hiking trails and other great sites. There are hiking trails that will take you right to the 216-foot Hot Springs Tower which offers spectacular views of the surrounding mountains.

Hot Springs N.P. is also the only National Park with its own brewery right on site.

We highly recommend adding the area to you.

Of course, the Hot Springs National Park KOA is a fantastic place to set up camp.
