If you’re thinking about renting an RV in central or northeastern Arkansas, Searcy might be one of the best places to do it. The town, just an hour outside of Little Rock, is small enough that it’s easy to navigate while still having plenty to see and do.
In the early 1800s, hot springs were discovered in the area that were said to have therapeutic benefits, drawing in tourists from around the state. Today it’s home to both Harding University, a small liberal arts school associated with the church of Christ, and a satellite campus of Arkansas State University. The two schools contribute to the town’s vibrant culture and make it feel much larger than it is.
A motorhome rental in Searcy puts you in touch with nature, city life and everything in between. You’re sure to see all this interesting part of the country has to offer during your travels within Searcy and beyond.
One of the most accessible places to enjoy nature is at the Bald Knob Wildlife Refuge just outside of town. The 15,000-acre refuge is home to large numbers of migratory waterfowl and eagles during the winter months - perfect for bird watching. Hiking trails are located on the refuge’s southeastern edge, but most of the birds will be found closer to the lake in the northwest corner.
Hot Springs National Park is only an hour and forty-five minute drive away and the perfect day trip for your Searcy travel trailer rental. Much like the springs in Searcy, the hot springs were thought to have medicinal properties that could heal anything from tuberculosis to arthritis. In the present day, visitors seek out the warm waters to ease their sore muscles and to explore the historic site that cropped up around the springs.
Driving about two hours in your Searcy, AR RV rental will get you to the popular Ozark National Forest. The park covers a staggering 1.2 million acres, mostly in the Ozark Mountains in northern Arkansas. The opportunity for outdoor recreation is seemingly limitless here. Hiking, biking, and camping are common. Visitors can also swim, boat, and fish. There’s abundant wildlife for viewing and photographing, so make sure you bring your camera. Fans of the outdoors may never want to leave this natural haven.
There are several RV parks within driving distance of Searcy. Whitney Lane RV Park is conveniently located just a few miles to the east of the city center, in Kensett, and only two miles from a Walmart. The park has full hookups, laundry facilities, and some great riverfront views, making it an ideal place to park your Searcy RV rental.
There are a couple of options to call home located close by in Judsonia. Try out the Red River RV Park. With full hookups, Wi-Fi, and laundry facilities you’ll have just about everything you need. It should be noted that there are no restrooms or showers here. Also in Judsonia is the Sunshine Meadows RV Park. You can expect a more rustic setting at this pet-friendly campsite, while still having electrical and city water hookups for your RV rental.
After a long day on the road, one of the best things you can do for yourself is to take a leisurely stroll. In the spring and summer months, the campus of Harding University is in full bloom with azaleas and dogwoods, making for a lush garden of pink and white flowers amidst the canopy of old growth trees. The university theater troupe also puts on several performances each year; check their calendar to see if they have any performances scheduled during your visit.
If you rent an RV in Searcy during the month of September, you’ll surely want to check out the White County Fair, which was named by the LA Times as one of the top ten county fairs in the country. Livestock shows, an antique tractor pull, great live music, and delicious food can all be found at the fair. Searcy isn’t particularly well known for its retail options, but if you want to do some shopping it has a few gems worth checking out. The main shopping area is the Town and Country Shopping Center, which has big box stores and a few smaller ones.
Whether you choose to spend your time touring the magnificent countryside, immersing yourself in the pristine nature or seeing the city sights, there’s something for everyone with an RV rental in Searcy, Arkansas.
