Stopover in Little Rock

Little Rock, AR

We left Oklahoma yesterday morning driving a short 202 miles to Maumelle Park, a COE facility on Maumelle Lake.

Once more a great COE park.  Water and 30 Amp Electric for just $11.00.   We sit about 100 feet from the lake.



We took a walk around last night to check out the Marina.  Look at that houseboat.


We had visitors but they scooted off when we got too close.


Our site:


As it was Halloween, these site was all decked out.  Today the decorations have changed to just Razzorbacks.


The weather is beyond great.  Up to 75 today.    Our short visit to Little Rock would not be complete without a visit to:


Not a real pretty building.


This is only the 2nd Presidential Library we've visited, the other being the Eisenhower Library in Abilene, KS.  That building was so much more attractive.

Aside from the usual mementos of his life, campaigns and time in office there was a replica of the Cabinet Room:



And the Oval Office.

We planned on touring this Sub - The Razzorback.   However, it was closed due to the walkways needing repair.


So instead we visited Olive Garden.

We head out again tomorrow morning for a 350 mile drive where we will overnight at Camp Walmart near Nashville.    Feels good to be on the road again.

We had to make a trip to Little Rock last week and passed right by the turn-off from Hwy 10 that goes down to the park. We really wished we had had the time to go down to the park and check it out. I have a friend that works for a company in Little Rock that loves to take their fifth wheel to the park.

The Promenade at Chenal is a really nice shopping center just a quick trip from the park. We had to stop by the Apple store there for a quick fix on my Mac Book. Had a few minutes and took a nice stroll around window shopping.

Enjoy your visit to Little Rock!!!

Looks like a nice place and you sure can't beat the price.

Looks like you're doing a lot of miles. Safe travels to Nashville.

That is a nice looking COE park. We are trying to hit all the presidential libraries we can, but have not made the Clinton one yet. We really enjoyed the Eisenhower facility.

We spent a week in that COE park. Love it. There is really a ton to see in Little Rock. We did some hiking too.

Not a bad trade....Olive Garden instead of a tour. ..lol
