We stayed two nights at Willow Beach Recreation Area. The park was lovely, but there were tons and tons of mayflies. On the plus side, there were also many glorious fireflies. This park was 30 minutes from Little Rock, so we could explore the capitol city a bit.
This park was only $19 per night. When we arrived there were no forms, so we went to find a spot then figure out how to check in. We discovered that it was a bit opposite from most parks we’ve visited which are first come first serve. Online check in was required! Fortunately the spot we selected was available and we could quickly reserve it. Whew!
