Economic impact of North Little Rock RV Park nears $7.4 million

The Downtown Riverside RV Park at 50 Riverfront Drive in North Little Rock announced today that it has brought in $1 million since opening on October 1, 2008 – resulting in an economic impact of nearly $7.4 million to central Arkansas.

“We are positively contributing to our city,” said Sheila Bullerwell, RV Park manager. “Beyond spending the night, visitors to the park are seeing attractions and eating in local restaurants, and sharing those experiences with other potential visitors.”
