Ready to Retreat? Come discover Brookside RV Retreat, located and surrounded by the beautiful Ouachita Mountains 20 miles east of Mena and 30 miles south of Mt. Ida, Arkansas. Our RV facilities were designed by people who understand you don't want to be crowded. This is why we have a very limited number of sites, which are spaciously arranged, allowing you as much privacy and solitude as you want.  Guests have private access to the Big Fork Creek, a great place to walk or picnic while listening to the sounds of the water. In the warmer months, cool off and take a dip in the crystal clear mountain stream. The creek runs along the backside of a 40 acre plot, all of which you are welcome to explore for swimming holes and waterfalls! Learn more about this land: We are a new 2021 RV park located in Big Fork, AR, 20 miles east of Mena and 30 miles south of Mt. Ida. We have 5 pull-through sites with full hook-ups. Sites are very spacious at 75' x 20' plus picnic, firepit, and seating areas. Guests have private access to the Big Fork Creek with swimming holes and waterfalls. We are also located near the Wolf Pen Gap ATV trails, and guests can ride directly to the trails from their RV site. Local rental companies are available for anyone not wanting to bring their own ATVs. There is plenty of overflow parking for trailers for those that do bring their own on the property as well.

Site 1 - Brookside RV Retreat
Great wide open spot. The creek is clear and pleasant and there are lots of stars for viewing.

Definitely worth staying here
Go to the back creek and walk towards right(Make sure you have some crocs or some kind if water shoes) Would be nice if they made a stairway or easier access to get there for people who cant make that walk so easy. There is a beautiful area to swim and relax with small water fall type scene. Internet can only be reached from site 1-2 from my experience. It was good because it meant more family time. I was able to use Internet for emergency situations i had to deal with from my Home alarm going off(false alarm). We had a great time staying here. They have a fire pit for smores so no need to bring one. Make sure you visit Little Missouri Falls. Its also a place worth visiting. You can take your vehicles in but probably better with side by side cuz its a tight squeeze . Its a scary drive up and down but definitely worth it. I definitely look foward to coming back and hopefully the treed they planted are taller. Im sure they will nske more improvements to this site but definitely had a good time. They were easy to answer questions. We were allowed to use our tent for a better camp feel so us guys stayed outside in tent. Im will be recommending this place to everyone i know for sure. Next time i might stay a full week cuz time flew.

Would Stay Again!
The scenery and surroundings of this campsite are beautiful! You are surrounded by forest and mountains and have access to some very cool shaded areas by the creek. The creek itself is amazing, with crystal clear water and a waterfall that I could have sat and listened to all day. The pads and camping/yard area are some of the largest we have camped at and we had no trouble leveling. The extra wide roads and pull through sites made it very easy to maneuver and set up.

Brookside RV Retreat
It literally sucked
First of all it's not a luxury resort or a retreat it's a RV camp in the middle of a field and when you dump the trash you have to get out on the highway on to Curves I almost got clipped twice. I would give it on a scale of 1 to 10 a zero there's nothing there but a mud hole. $50 a night is overpriced. $18 a night would be expensive for that place. There are no restrooms which I don't use anyway and for $50 a night there ought to be a laundry lamp post trash on site without going on the highway the pads need to be level these people have a lot to learn about an RV Retreat
