The Perfect Campsite at Village Creek State Park

Village Creek State Park Road Trip

April 14, 2006 Posted at 6:45 CST

Cross County, AR - It's getting warmer and the stars are out at night, and what do you want to do? Go camping, right? Well, we've got just the place for you. First let's go over some necessary items for your trip.

 Bug spray- we know how mosquitos get around here. Can opener- have you ever gotten in the woods with your pork-n-beans and forgot the can opener? Toilet paper- well, just don't forget it. Always bring a first aid kit, flashlights, plenty of batteries, blankets, matches, and whatever fits your camping style.

We went to Target to get our supplies and to pick out a tent. They've got a great selection, and you can even see them on display. But for those of you who like to camp in style, you can check out Mashburn's RV Center. They have pop-ups, fifth-wheels, pull-outs, and motorhomes.

Once we got all that out of the way we headed to Village Creek State Park in Wynne to find the perfect campsite. But we found way more than that.
