Big Creek Landing Campground is at the northern end of Wright Patman Lake close to the towns of Maud and Redwater. There are almost 30 campsites in the campground, and all have electrical and water hookups. Six of the sites are pull-thru for easy access, and the maximum length rental RV allowed is 50 feet.Except for the convenience of water and electric connections, this is a basic site, with only vault toilets, no showers, and few facilities. Campsites are all under the shade of trees, so perfect for those hot summer days. There is a boat ramp, swimming area, and plenty of recreational opportunities such as hiking and mountain biking. Your four-legged friend is welcome to come with you while RV camping at Big Creek Landing Campground, but they must be kept on a leash.When you book an RV in Cass County, there are plenty of opportunities to get out and explore, with parks, lakes, and forests in all directions.

Around the shoreline of Wright Patman Lake are several park areas, including Atlanta State Park, located on the southern shore. The park offers many recreational activities, such as fishing, hiking, boating, and camping. The lake is known for its excellent blue catfish, crappie and white bass, plus other species are stocked in large numbers. If you haven’t brought your fishing gear on your motorhome vacation, rent some gear in the state park.Whether exploring the cragged shoreline of the lake or looking for the perfect fishing area, you can rent canoes and kayaks in the state park.Two good, marked trails are available in this state park. The Atlanta State Park Trail is a 2-mile out and back hike that follows the shoreline, giving nice views as you go along. It is graded as easy, so perfect for the whole family. Dogs are allowed but must be kept on a leash.The second trail is the White Oak Ridge Trail, which is a little longer and slightly more difficult. It is graded as moderate, but only because of a couple of short steep climbs over the 3-mile out and back route. From the start point, the route follows the shoreline before climbing into the trees where you can spot plenty of wildlife.To the north of Big Creek Landing in Arkansas is Ouachita National Forest, which covers a massive 1.8 million acres of forest and protected land. There is plenty to see and do here, including scenic drives with information boards, off-highway vehicle driving, with rental vehicles available, miles of marked hiking trails and plenty of wildlife to spot. There are several lakes, and many creeks, streams, and rivers criss-cross the forest. Non-motorized boating is allowed, and canoe and kayak rental are available locally.
Just a couple of miles northeast is the city of Texarkana, TX, where you can find gas stations and plenty of grocery stores to stock up your rental RV. This is an interesting town partly because it is split right down the middle by the Arkansas state line, so there are two cities called Texarkana, side by side, but in different states. The name originates from its location, but the surveyors made a small mistake! The town should have been on the state line where Texas, Arkansas, and Louisiana meet, hence Tex-Ark-Ana. Unfortunately, the Louisiana state border is around 20 miles to the south! The name was adopted anyway, despite the mistake!Texarkana is a bustling city with plenty of attractions when camping with an RV at Big Creek Landing. The kids will love the Holiday Springs Water Park in the north of the city. As you’d expect, it has plenty of death-defying water slides, a lazy river ride to relax on as you drift around the park, and a wave pool that the kids will love.After all the excitement of the water park, a little local history may be in order, and there are several historic houses in the city. Of particular interest is the Ace of Club House, and as the name implies, it is shaped like a playing card club. It also features a 20-foot high central tower, and inside is a central octagon-shaped central stairway. It was originally built in 1885 and is now owned and run by the Texarkana Museum System.On the Arkansas side of Texarkana is the Four States Auto Museum. For anyone with an interest in classic and vintage cars, place this on your list of places to visit while camping with an RV near Texarkana. Founded in 2004, the museum has a collection of beautifully restored classic cars, including Corvettes, Mustangs, Cadillacs, Camaros, and some vintage trucks. Every year, the museum holds its annual Spring Car Show in conjunction with Texarkana’s Railfest, an event that’s sure to be a hit with anyone interested in transport, railroads, or automobiles.
What type of RV should I choose?
Start by determining how many people are planning to travel with you. Going on a solo-journey? Choose a camper van or a teardrop trailer. Bringing the whole family along for the ride? Consider a spacious Class A or five-wheel.
You’ll also want to consider amenities. For example, if you’re planning to cook on the road, you’ll want a kitchenette. If your campground doesn’t have public restrooms, you’ll want to search RVs with bathrooms. Check out full descriptions of our models to help you decide here.
Do the RVs have bathrooms?
Yes. Class A’s, Class B’s, and Class C’s and five-Wheels typically have bathrooms. Depending on where you plan on camping, you’ll want to double-check the availability of restrooms if selecting a rig without a bathroom. Nervous about renting an RV with a bathroom? Owners can help show you how to clean the tank or will offer to do it for you for a fee.
