The large field has some gravel on the north end and is fairly level.
Easy pull through and turn around provided its not too wet. Four churches (Baptist, Methodist, Penticostal and Catholic) are within three miles. Alta Vista, the original name the five Italian families gave this area over a century ago, is now called Little Italy. We are located 20 minutes from Little Rock, 45 minutes to downtown and the President Clinton Museum. 20 minutes to Pinnacle MT State Park. A half hour from the college town of Conway, one hour from Petit Jean State Park, seventy-five minutes to Hot Springs National Park and Oaklawn Race Track and Gaming (January to May racing season). We are about about 45 minutes from I-40 either from Little Rock or Morrilton ( a quick hook up with I-40 West w/o going back to Little Rock).
No smoking on property.
No running generators after 9
Put trash in solid green container.
This is atop a mountain and there are a couple of right angle curves but nothing an 18 wheeler can't handle.
You have the option of staying connected or parking near your rig
Within walking distance is the Little Italy Heritage Museum and the St. Francis Italian Festival on the first Sunday in October. 3 miles down the road is the Wye Mt. Daffodils Festival in early March. Local winery, Enchanted Evening, is just three miles away.
Nature lovers are welcome to hike the trails on our 80 wooded acres with streams and wildlife. Disc golf is available to play.
This was our second stay at Alta Vista. We had another peaceful night enroute home. Our host was just as helpful and gracious as last time. We look forward to staying here again and hope to be able to spend some time exploring the area.
The host was wonderful and generous!
He met us at his driveway to show us where to park.
Lots of room for my kids to run around, we walked down to the little creek.
Beautiful level spot.
Can't wait to visit again!
This was our first boondockers booking ever and the bar has been set high! The property is peaceful and beautiful! Host is a gracious host and allowed us to use his hookups! We enjoyed sharing stories with him! We tried to give him a tip but he wouldn’t take it! His heart is in sharing! What a sweet man! God bless you!
Host was awesome. He was waiting for us upon arrival, we had a great socially distanced chat and enjoyed the location greatly. Wish we would’ve had time for some frisbee golf. Hope to be back again soon!
Our second time using the Service and again we were thrilled how helpful and kind this Host was.
We got to visit a bit in the evening and to my surprise his son speaks fluent German, what a treat for me.
Has been to my Home country many times so there was much to discuss.
We highly recommend you visit here, you will enjoy your stay and we will stop in again on our way to the E. Coast.
Thank you and stay safe
Host is very friendly lots of room to park more than adequate Water and Electric.
Had a great time in conversation, while social distancing, with Host.
We also had an unexpected round of disc golf his private course!
Be careful on that trip to the top of the mountain!
We had a great time at this site, and Bob was simply amazing. We had the best time visiting with him, sitting in the lawn chairs under the awning and just chatting away. Oh, the 30 amp hook up and water supply were great, too.
Very nice one night stay @IittleItaly on way to visit an old friend near New Orleans.Host was great & we had a lot in common;we even grow the same Juliet grape tomato .
Nice rural setting & will stay there ago if in area & in need of a quiet place to rest.
We had a nice, level, shaded parking spot and great conversation with LittleItaly. We found that we have a mutual friend. We would definitely stay again!
Not only was it a beautiful setting but we learned a lot of the history of the area. Would recommend this for anyone traveling thru the area.
The welcome we received from this owner was sincere and genuine. He was immediately there to help us get familiar with his arrangement. The place is rather close to the road but that fact did not bother our sleep at all. BTW he provided us with directions for a shorter country drive from his house to our destined Hwy40w.
Bob is a most gracious host and shares a great piece of his property for a most enjoyable stay. He was always very responsive to inquiries, met us at the entrance to his property and helped guide us to a nice spot with electrical hook-up and water. The site also has a nice wood picnic table and stone fire ring with firewood provided. This is a very quiet location with very little traffic. The highway in and out has some steep and twisty grades but should be manageable by downshifting or using exhaust brakes.
We just stayed for the night while passing thru but there are many local state parks and other locations in the area to take advantage of if you have the time.
We highly recommend this location. Thanks again, Bob, for sharing your neat location and for the warm conversation.
Bob is an amazing guy who was kind and full of joy. His property is amazing and he gave us plenty of space to do our thing. My 7 year old daughter was so impressed that she told me “I want land like Bob.” I would highly recommend you stop by on your next trip through Arkansas.
My host help direct me in after my wrong turn (normal) and gave a level spot with everything I needed. It is a beautiful property on top of the mountain. We visited wth long conversation and over coffee the next morning. It was great and look forward to the next and his visit to mine.
LittleItaly couldn't have been more kind and welcoming to his patch of paradise, Alta Vista. We enjoyed pleasant conversation with our wonderful host and a quiet, restful night. We just wish we would have stayed more than one night. We definitely plan on coming back the next time we roll through Little Rock! Thank you LittleItaly!!!
We had a wonderful short stay at LIttleItaly's spot just outside of Little Rock, our kids enjoyed his friendly cat and biking around his yard, he had a great spot setup with 30amp and water! Would stay again.
we had the pleasure of staying at Alta Vista last evening. The host was amazing and treated us like we were special. Sort of felt like family by the time we left earlier today. The location is beautiful and well kept with water and electric convenient to where you need to park. Host was gracious enough to provide us a very detailed handwritten map for our return back to the interstate. I would certainly recommend this boondockers welcome host site. Will be looking forward to visiting again when we're back through this area.
Well what a great stay with this kind man. DUKE loved the property and open space to play. We were welcomed and even invited to stay as long as we wanted due to the quarantine. He was very understanding and kind. Thank you so much sir. DUKE and I will see you again next year. Stay safe sir.
Host was very nice and helpful. His place is beautiful, he was very accommodating. We’re glad we got there before dark, so we were able to take a walk. It’s a beautiful place and we would love to stay there longer next time. He’s very nice and welcoming. There’s enough room for 2 rigs to stay there comfortably with electricity. We were able to turn around on his lot, and it was flat enough that we didn’t have to detach the trailer for the night.
We just spent two awesome nights at this amazing site. Our host LittleItaly is a kind and generous soul, we became immediate friends. Site is peaceful and beautiful with lots of room for dogs to run! Hope to visit with LittleItaly again! We wanted to visit the many parks close by but Mother Nature had different plans😂 So we need to go back to climb Pinnacle Mountain!
Was going to stay at another location in Little Rock, but they canceled at the last minute. Was glad they did had a wonderful with time with LittleItaly. Would highly recommend to stay with him. He made us feel so welcomed with his welcoming packet of information of the area and just had a great time learning about the area from him and talking to him, hope to stay with him again
