You should be fine in that area. That part of North Little Rock, the original downtown area known as Argenta
, has really undergone a revitalization in the last few years. Main street has lots of clubs and restaurants. Near there, Dickey-Stephens Park, a new minor league stadium, is home to the Travelers
. Across the river on the Little Rock side, NLR and LR are technically different cities, the Rivermarket
(slow to load site, I didn't build it so it's not my fault) area is even more of a destination.
The RV park is only a couple of years old. Early on (Fall 2008) it was home to a national motorhome rally
with something like 1,000 units along the river. The park is not a 1,000 spaces, that was a special thing spreading along the river. It has 68-72 spaces, depending on whether you look at the website or the websites pdf map showing the layout and access from I30. (I have attached the pdf file.) It is right by I30 so access is easy. Surprisingly, traffic noise is not bad, the I30 Bridge across the Arkansas River elevates the traffic well above the park.
Lots to see and do in the Ozarks too. The southern tips of the Ozark mountains are south of I40 and the river. Mount Magazine
, the highest point in the state at only 2,753 feet, is the southern tip of the Ozarks. The rest of the Ozarks are north of the river. Some camping at Mount Magazine (not many spaces), as well as a new lodge and cabins. Near there is Lake Dardnelle on the AR River with camping too. Further north there is the Buffalo River
, the first nationally protected river. Great canoeing and fishing. More great fishing and boating on the White River, including large man-made lakes. Some near Bentonville. Beaver Lake
is something like 10 miles east. You may want to search for RV parks at Beaver Lake for a place to stay while you are visiting Bentonville. It would be convenient.
There's more in LR/NLR and the rest of AR, too. Way too much for here. Come on and visit! Be prepared, it will be hot and humid. You should be able to handle it if you're from Panama City.
