Located in northern Arkansas, the Ozark View RV Park features 55 RV sites on the expanse of 27 acres. A three-bedroom short-term rental is also an available option for those who may be traveling without an RV. Lawn space is provided with the short-term rental, and each room contains its own bath, as well as a living room, kitchen, and laundry machines. In addition to the RV sites that guests can reserve, four storage lots and a bathhouse with two restrooms can also be found on-site. A couple of other facilities on the premises that are available to patrons during their stay is the laundromat and RV repair shop. Basic supplies such as a water hose, for example, are sold at the shop. Those who are staying at the RV park can also purchase propane. Situated right outside of the on-site RV store is a vending machine that contains various drink options.
Each of the 55 sites include full hookups with 20, 30, and 50 amp service, as well as water and sewage. A mix of pull-through and back-in sites are available among the units. Some spaces are paved, while others have gravel; however, the majority of sites are encompassed with grass areas. The sites all include picnic tables and free Wi-Fi as well. A view of the surrounding land can be seen from at least 25 of the sites, according to the owner. Visitors can explore the area along the walking trail that leads down from the property, or they can play horseshoe at the park. The owner has future plans to add corn hole as an activity that patrons can play on-site.
Ozark View RV Park encourages guests to act in accordance with the guidelines that are implemented at the property. Pets are welcome to stay with visitors, though dogs that are generally larger in size must be kept on a leash. Regarding quiet hours, noise levels are to be kept at a minimum from 8:00 PM to 6:00 AM. Beyond the previously listed policies, the owner primarily hopes that patrons will follow safety guidelines by making sure fires are put out reasonably and by putting forth the effort in keeping the park clean.
The owner of the establishment has the goal of providing a place where guests can feel "like they're actually camping," and he hopes that visitors will want to "come back and experience it again." In an effort to provide this experience for patrons, the managers try to assist guests at their sites, especially those who are first-time RV campers. Interaction between the owner and the occupants occurs often, and the owner mentions that he takes interest in getting to know those who are staying at the sites. A visitor who had previously stayed at the RV park commented on the owners' hospitality, saying, "The husband and wife who manage this park are some the hardest working and kindest people I have ever met. They go above and beyond to make sure that you are having an enjoyable stay and the extra effort they put into their job really shows."
As the RV park is open to visitors year-round, the busiest time of operation typically lasts from July to October. During the summer and fall season, the owner comments that the RV park tends to receive a fair amount of motorcyclists. The demographic of those who stay at the property is not categorized into one group of individuals, as a diverse mixture of visitors stay at the Ozark View RV Park. Though the owner remarks that due to the family-oriented nature of the RV park, a handful of families and children stay there often. Additionally, several repeat guests return to the RV park each year.
A fair amount of wildlife roams the grounds of the RV park, with the most commonly seen animal being deer. The views of the environment at Ozark View RV Park is one of the unique aspects of the property, as reported by the owner. Ozark View RV Park is situated between Branson, which is about 15 miles away, and Harrison, approximately 30 miles away. Omaha, the town at which the business is located, is generally known for the view of the Ozarks during the colder season, according to the owner. He also remarks that Ozark View RV Park is encompassed by wilderness while still being close to urban areas. One previous guest commented on this particular aspect of the property's location, saying, "It is far enough from town that you feel like you are in your own little relaxing bubble but you are still a short car ride from the tourist town of Branson." The owner notes that a number of BBQ restaurants can be found in Branson nearby as well, and he typically directs those who are searching for places to eat to those restaurants.
Ozark View RV Park was bought from foreclosure in 2010, and has had multiple ownerships since. During the early years of the RV park's creation, a cabin and four sites were the only available rentals on the acreage. Since the time of first acquiring the acreage, the current owner has added more amenities and on-site activities. He also cleaned up the park, putting effort into updating the general appearance of the park. The most recent addition to the property was the purchase of more cabins that are currently being renovated so that guests who don't have an RV can stay at the property.
One of the owner's favorite parts of running the business so far is "getting to be involved in day-to-day activities." He tries to be accessible to visitors, in case they have any questions or concerns, and he strives to "welcome them in any way that we can."
