Blue Sky RV Park

The Blue Sky RV Park can be found in northern Arkansas, offering 38 sites. The current owner of the acreage has been running the business since 2014. Each site is a full hookup, with the inclusion of a picnic table and firepit for every spot. Horseshoes, swingsets, and live entertainment are a few activities that patrons can participate in without having to leave the property. A number of festivals occur throughout the year in close proximity to Blue Sky RV Park, namely, the Folk Festival, the Bean Fest and Championship Outhouse Races, and the Mountains, Music, and Motorcycles event. A fair amount of tourists also come to the area to visit Blanchard Springs Caverns, which offers hiking, swimming, and fishing. 


Located in northern Arkansas, Blue Sky RV Park is situated on an expanse of approximately 8.5 acres of land. A total of 38 sites are available to visitors for rent, all of which are full hookups with water, sewer, and 30 and 50-amp services. A picnic table and firepit additionally come with each unit. On the premises, a blue building that primarily functions as a clubhouse and main office building can be found. Meetings, mini-concerts, live music performances, and other similar occasions are just a few of the potential events that can be held at the blue building. In front of this building, there are five swings positioned in a circular shape around a firepit. In addition to the swingsets, horseshoes are available as an on-site activity for patrons. Furthermore, a relatively small store is located on the premises, selling things such as shirts, hats, and other souvenir items. Visitors may also have access to the bathhouse and provided laundry machines during their stay. Other amenities include Wi-Fi and cable TV offered in five different areas of the park. 

Blue Sky RV Park is located directly off of Highway 5, the main route that runs through the area. The surroundings are generally rural and secluded from more urban cities. On one side of the property, there is a restaurant, and on the other side, a place for car maintenance. Across from the RV park, there is a business that sells tractor supplies, including box blades, lawn mowers, and storage items.

Fishing tends to draw in those who are interested in spending time outdoors. Located approximately two miles from Blue Sky RV Park is the White River, where fishermen typically engage in such activities. Additionally, nearly eleven miles from the RV park is the Blanchard Springs Caverns, an attraction in the Ozark National Forest. There, visitors can go swimming, hiking, or fishing. For tourists who are interested in learning more about the historical significance of the area, the Ozark Folk Center, in particular, teaches visitors about the materials and crafts used in Ozarks during the late 1800s and 1900s. The Loco Ropes are also popular among tourists, as the area features a high wire ropes course. Over 30 challenges and three different segments are featured throughout the course.

For visitors who are searching for nearby places to eat, the owner recommends Tommy's Pizza, Angler's, and Wing Shack. Tommy's Pizza is a hippie-run pizzeria, located about a ten-minute drive from Blue Sky RV Park. Anglers can be found right on the White River, offering an array of foods. Finally, Wing Shack includes a considerably sizable porch with swings that visitors can use.


Blue Sky RV Park is geared more towards adults; however, children are not discouraged from staying at the property. Pets are also welcome to stay on the premises, as the owner of the park, Tammy, mentions that she is fond of pets. In an attempt to further emulate a relaxed atmosphere, quiet hours are implemented from 10:00 PM to 7:00 AM. Tammy explains that she wants her guests to feel "at home" during their stay. Should a problem of any sort arise during guests' visits, she hopes that patrons will contact her about such issues for assistance. Telling visitors about the local festivals and attractions that can be found in close proximity to Blue Sky RV Park is another element of operating the business that Tammy puts forth the effort to do. One visitor commented, "The owner, Tammy, is very professional but welcomes you like an old friend. The grounds are very well kept and the bathhouse is clean. She has full hookups, cable, and Wi-Fi. This campground is about 3 miles north of town but close to stores and attractions."

The RV Park is open year-round, with the busiest season occurring in the months of June and October. The majority of the demographic for Blue Sky RV Park is retirees or those over the age of fifty-five. Several repeat guests tend to come for the nearby festivals that occur throughout the town. 

The Folk Festival, which typically occurs in April, is one particular event that is recommended for guests of the RV park. Some of the activities that tourists can participate in at the Folk Fest are Music on the Square, an old-time Contra Dance, a parade, food vendors, and arts and crafts. Another notable festival that Tammy recommends is the annual Mountains, Music, and Motorcycles event. As the name implies, the festival contains biker games, a bike show, a car show, a poker run, sideshow performances, and free concerts in the town square. Picking Park is also where musical events take place. Lastly, the Bean Fest and Championship Outhouse Races is another event that typically draws a number of visitors. Patrons are encouraged to attend these festivals for the purpose of giving them the opportunity to meet new people.


Since 2014, a woman named Tammy has owned and operated Blue Sky RV Park. The park was built in the early 1980s and has developed into several different things throughout its existence. 

Tammy first became interested in RV parks when she went on a trip to Colorado with her sister. Before owning Blue Sky RV Park, she ran an 800-acre property with 11 different buildings. This previous experience gave her a sense of confidence to take on an RV park. During her search for a property that she could potentially own, she decided that she wanted to stay close to home. Eventually, she discovered Blue Sky RV Park, purchased the land, and helped it grow and develop into what it now is today. 

Some renovations that have been made during the current phase of ownership include adding gravel, upgrading the bathhouse and blue building, adding landscape timbers, tree trimming, and upgrading the water system. Initially, Tammy had started out with 29 sites within the first year of owning the business, but 8 more were added in the back, and she hopes to make those sites bigger. As for future plans, she hopes to add a fence for the purpose of creating privacy for those who stay at the property and to make the boundaries of the acreage more conspicuous. She also has the goal of developing the sites near the back of the property to accommodate long-term visitors. In the future, she plans to add ten more sites that visitors can rent.

One particularly unique characteristic of the property is that the dance floor in the blue building was a place where several previous guests had their first dance/date. Tammy mentions that one of her favorite parts of her job is hearing stories about the dance floor and how it played a role in several visitors' lives. Another notable aspect is that, according to park management, the blue building is featured in an old film called Bootlegger.
