Located in the Central Ozarks, Batesville is the largest town within a broad radius. It offers visitors many restaurants, shopping centers, banks, regional hospital and outpatient clinics, and of course, a Walmart Supercenter. Batesville is also home to two top-notch institutions of higher learning, Lyon College and University of Arkansas Community College at Batesville (UACCB), both of which sponsor concerts, plays and other cultural events throughout the year. Lyon College’s Scottish Festival in the spring is a statewide favorite as well as the White River Water Carnival in the fall and White River Wonderland during the Christmas season. And don’t miss Downtown Batesville, where Main Street showcases restored historic homes and the Old Independence County Regional Museum.
The excitement of the Batesville Motor Speedway is just four miles away. Featuring the COMP Cams Topless 100, the dirt race track at Batesville has a range of seating options, including stadium seats, family sections and lawn-chair seating. Races are held weekly April through September on Friday nights.
If you’re a fan of folk music, history and local culture, a 45-minute scenic drive will take you to Mountain View, well-known for “pickin’ and grinnin’” on the town square as well as the Ozark Folk Center. You can also go underground for a cave tour at Blanchard Springs Caverns, hang out in the trees at Loco Ropes and take in a performance at the Twin Lakes Playhouse.
Speedway RV is only 40 minutes from Greers Ferry Lake, a pristine 40,000-acre Ozark Mountain lake perfect for camping, fishing, swimming, boating, skiing and tubing; a favorite water playground nestled in the foothills of the Ozarks.
Three courses located on the Natural State Golf Trail are located about an hour away from the RV park: Mountain Ranch in Fairfield Bay, Tannebaum at Drasco and Red Apple Inn at Heber Springs.
