It's camping season and if you're looking for the perfect spot to escape from the everyday stresses of life, Catherine's Landing RV Resort near Hot Springs, Arkansas is that place.

Lake Catherine has always been my personal favorite because of its tranquility and peace of mind that it gives me every time that I want to get away. Catherine's Landing has everything that a camper needs with over 400 pasture-type acres surrounded by one mile of water frontage on beautiful Lake Catherine. Abundant wildlife such as deer, rabbits, armadillos, squirrels, and raccoons, make this their natural habitat. This is a dog-friendly campsite too that even has a dog wash area for your furry friend. If that's not enough, there are even cottage rentals available.
