J & J RV Park – Hot Springs

Spread the love

2000 E. Grand (Hwy. 70E)
Hot Springs, AR 71901

I wanted to explore Hot Springs itself from a close and convenient location so I’d have more time for exploration of the historic area of town and the National Park – really both one and the same. I chose J & J RV Park because it’s only 3.5 miles from Bathhouse Row with real quick & convenient access via 70E.

J&J - Site 14

This is the rear of my site #14. I was told the creek was really down and things were not as green due to the unusually dry weather they are having, but I still enjoyed having the trickling water in my backyard.

J&J - Pond

At the end of the park is a little pond. The big RVs are in the front row of pull-throughs – lots of room here. There’s another row of pull-throughs between the ones you’re seeing and the RVs backing up to the creek in sites 18 – 27.

JJ - Campers

I enjoyed meeting Glen & Bonnie Emerson, who were here for the Open Rally from Vivian, Louisiana. They said they’ve been coming here for 4 years and one of the main things that keeps them coming back is the friendliness of the owners. That’s JJ (one of the owners) in the red shirt and I confirmed he didn’t pay them to say that! But besides that, they also said they liked the layout of the park – that it was easy to get in and out of as opposed to the KOA across the street, which has tight sites and inconveniently placed trees.

JJ - Laundry

Looking from the laundry / showers down the front row of pull-throughs.

JJ - Creek

I enjoyed having my coffee down here by the creek in the mornings – a great way to start the day!

JJ - Groups

This is a popular park for groups – they receive a discount of 10% and have use of the 20×30′ meeting room with full kitchen with this patio area outside. The laundry, showers and restrooms are also housed here. They’ve also built a nice mini-storage compound that is available for guest use during extended stays.

two-centsMalia’s 2 Cents:  One of the things that convinced me this was the right choice was my conversations with Janice, one of the owners, while I was in the planning stages.  She was always so friendly and helpful answering my many questions.  Jerrel (JJ) & Janice built the park themselves in the summer of 2000 and live onsite – you can really tell when owners have a personal interest by the meticulous way the park is maintained.  Go by and tell them fine folks Malia says hi!
