It took several years and $8 million, but there’s a new place for RVers along the Arkansas River. The new Fort Smith, Arkansas, RV resort called Riverfront RV Resort opened last week.

Located about a half mile from the recently opened U.S. Marshals Museum, the Fort Smith, Arkansas, resort has a park-like setting. An on-site manager lives in an apartment. The park also developed office and retail space. It is located just south of 330 acres the city purchased from Kansas City Southern Railroad Company for soft surface trails. There are 100 RV sites of varying sizes and 10 tent campsites. Space rental varies from $50 to $80. RV Travel
