That's right..Roosters!  This site comes with built in alarm clock set for sunrise.  You will not sleep in.  Well, if you use earplugs, are a heavy sleeper, or accustomed to farm life then you might snooze through the morning crow from the nearby coop.  There is also the potential for highway noise from U.S. 70.  If the downside seems tolerable, then let's get to the good parts!

Enjoy the lake lifestyle with a full hookup site; 30A 120V RV, potable water, and septic. This open and flat meadow is nearly surrounded by trees, has a nice view of the pond, and trail access to the nearby lake. This site is perfect for use as base camp to explore the many nearby attractions, for the fishing enthusiast, and of course to hang out and enjoy your own space with plenty of room, then mosey down to the lake whenever you feel like it .  You are welcomed here, so just make yourself at home and enjoy your own plot of land on Lake Greeson and I'll be your neighbor that has a lot of chickens! 

The site is 130 feet away from the chicken coop and it is visible.  They will freerange from about 9 am until sunset.  Most will head far out of sight but a small group will linger around coop.  My house is also in view, it's about 250 feet from site.  Trees and shrubs are scattered between, so the overall views of coop and house from camp site are partial, making it a semi-private setting for all of us.  The view ranges from thick forest to moderate tree cover with a few open areas that offer a view of the pond and another meadow.

Overall the downside is noise and the upside is it's your own 1/4 acre plot within 6 acres of private property.  Lake access from property is a short walk, however there are a few nearby options to drive to shoreline.  If you have any questions at all, please send me a message.  Thanks for visiting!

Charles is a very accommodating and concerned Host. The week I was there the Weather Channel got it AALLL wrong ! The last two days were freezing rain so Crater Of Diamonds got scratched off the to-do list. Charles loaned me a small space heater for my tent and it made a few degrees difference through the night. He also shared a 1/2 dozen fresh eggs and hooked me up with a fist full of Fatwood Splinters for later.
Rooster Row is a very large & level area and only 1/4 mile from the Lake Greeson shoreline. I suggest the ARBLM road to hike or bike your way down.
The bad thing is the drive way down to the various campsites. If you have low ground clearance or a long wheel base its gonna get sketchy coming in and if the ground is wet a frozen, like when I pulled out @20*, you better be aggressive with your momentum on your first attempt. If he had a bit off dozing or grading done it would make a world of difference.
Also, put out some better Markers or Signage at the road to show the turn into the property.
I WOULD go back if I'm ever that way again ! ! !

Hands down the best primitive, and RV camping in Arkansas! Charles was an AMAZING host! And he has a beautiful property with lake access! Morning roosters is by far the best way to wake up before taking a little stroll to the lake. And his hospitality is superb! Thanks for the battery jump!

Property is amazing! Rustic but for RVs, the hookups are conveniently located in one spot. We arrived at night so was a bit of a challenge finding since minimal road lighting. But, our host was on the side of the road with a light and guided us to our spot! His tent sites are pretty amazing too! They’re spread out so no one is on top of one another. One bit of warning...this being my first RV trip ever, it seems my trailer is considered a big rig (33’ box) and things were pretty tight negotiating it around getting out. Barely heard the roosters and even if I did, wouldn’t care. Part of the charm! Plus the host let us hold a couple of the babies! There is some road noise but minimal. Host is very personable and I would definitely recommend his site to anyone!

View from the living area View from the dining table View of the roosters! The path goes down to the tent sites...

The host was very welcoming. By the time I was arriving which was late at night, Charles was starting a nice warm fire which was much appreciated as I had been driving about 9 hours. I was able to rest by the fire and just take in the night views. The location was super quiet and very private with working electricity, which is a plus. Highly recommend!!

Lovely stay! Charles is very welcoming and accommodating and the property is beautiful. The rv hookup area is pretty loud with the traffic. Definitely need earplugs 😉 the lake is gorgeous also!

Charles was awesome, very accommodating. I am solo traveling and stayed at his other campsite ‘Fox Nook’, just for a night. Charles raises chickens. Many roosters crowing in the morning, but I personally enjoyed hearing them. Short little walk to a beautiful lake. The bathroom is primitive. I was looking for a nice little campsite for the night and I found it.
