Scenic AR. Highway 7 & 9

We are going to Sedalia by way of Hot Springs,AR and planning on either Scenic hwy 7 or 9. Pulling a 25' Airstream. It has been many many years since I drove this highway and I would like to get some ideas of what to expect pulling my Airstream. Also any ideas on camping spots along the way?

We came down Scenic Route 7 from I40 just over a week ago in our 25 foot - no problem! We stayed at Lake Dardanelle SP the first night and went to Lake Ouachita SP for 2 nights - both state parks were great! Enjoy the drive

We have taken Route 7 from Hot Springs to Russellville a couple times in the past few years. The road has always been good and lightly traveled. We have stayed at a Corps park on Lake Nimrod where we paid $7 for water & electric with the America the Beautiful pass. The map makes the road look much more winding than it seems to be when driving it.

I appreciate all the information. We are at a COE on Wright Patman Lake and will be heading for Hot Springs on Sunday. Looking forward to the trip up Scenic 7.

I'll be heading up to Lake Dardanelle from New Orleans tomorrow. Not to the state park, though; I'm staying at one of the Corps of Engineers campgrounds. Looking forward to the drive, as well as to the camping.
