Shadow Mountain RV Park

Conveniently located in the Ouachita Mountains, we're just 6 miles South of Mena, Arkansas on Highway 71 South. Our location places you just across from Polk County road 78 which is a scenic 14 mile ride to Wolf Pen Gap Trails recreation area. By just crossing the highway with your SXS or ATV you will quickly be in Ouachita National Forest and near all of the outdoor activities no trailering or moving of camp needed. Eco-Friendly outdoor adventures like, ATV and Motorcycle riding Trails, Equestrian Trails, Mountain Biking and Hiking Trails, not to mention the exploring the countless walking and running paths.

Wake up to clean fresh air, enjoy nature in the cool sunlit mornings. Become part of the thrilling scenic views during the bright afternoon sunlight. Transition into the quiet evening, as the sun goes down, by gathering around a campfire. Then sit back and meld into the audience as you watch millions of stars grace the heavens, becoming actors dancing across the sky, in a timeless celestial event that's been witnessed since the dawn of time.

Shadow Mountain RV Park is a family friendly and couples retreat that's well maintained and manicured.


Okay Fellow Eclipsers,

Eclipse chasers are people who plan their lives around (and spend small fortunes on) eclipse travel. Next year, of course, they’ll be joining millions of people in the United States (Arkansas) to see the total solar eclipse of 2024.

Arkansans who didn't travel a few hours to see the total solar eclipse last will get another chance to see one April 8, 2024, when the moon will blot out the sun over much of Arkansas for a few minutes.

The eclipse will come up from Mexico, cutting a wide swath through Texas and Arkansas, then on through parts of the Great Lakes region, New York, New England and Newfoundland.

The zone of total eclipse will include Little Rock and will stretch 188 miles to the west, almost to Fort Smith. It will include Hot Springs, Hope, Arkadelphia, Texarkana, Conway and Jonesboro, Mena in addition to many other cities.

Southeast Arkansas won't see the total eclipse. Neither will a section of the state northwest of a line from Fort Smith to Harrison. But at least a partial eclipse will be visible across Arkansas on April 8, 2024.

Get a spot in Mena where you can enjoy the Mountains and the Eclipse all at once!

“Beautiful well maintained park with full amenities”

This park has new owners since summer 2020. They have maintained it well and provided clean bathrooms and reasonable laundry. The sites are wide and mostly level. There is a lake at the end of the park. WiFi is excellent though cell service is spotty. It is right on the highway so some spots have highway noise, which doesn’t bother me at all. Owners are friendly and helpful. If I’m ever in that area again I will stay here.



“Beautiful place!”

Traveling through Arkansas on the way toTexas, we called a few hours away for a spot. No problems at all! The property was clean and well maintained. We were greeted well and had a peaceful stay and a restful night after a long day of driving.
