Coming Feb. 1, Catherine’s Landing, an RVC Outdoor Destination, will be open for business.
The resort is located in Hot Springs, Ark., on one mile of water frontage on Lake Catherine and is the only outdoor property of its kind in the state and region, according to a news release. After a year of planning and construction, the anticipated Catherine’s Landing will be “your ideal natural environment mixed with your favorite hotel experience,” setting it apart from anything of its kind, the release continued.
“This is possibly the most extensive destination that we have built,” said Andy Cates, president of RVC Outdoor Destinations. “It was a blank canvas when we started, but we’ve been continually enhancing and adding to it to give people the ultimate outdoor vacation experience,” he added.
The resort offers several options:
- An RV site with full hook-ups, 50-amp service and cable.
- One of the furnished RVC Resort Cottages, all of which include a loft, washer/dryer, dishwasher, and flat screen TV.
- A yurt – a modern, round, tent-like structure with wooden floors, windows, skylights, beds with fresh linens, and heating and air conditioning.
- Rates start at $40 for RV sites, $120 for resort cottages and $36 for yurts per night.
Amenities at Catherine’s Landing include a community lodge with coffee, beer and wine bar, convenience store, fitness center, concierge service, hiking and nature trails, game room, water access and boat rentals.
Catherine’s Landing is located on the Humphreys Dairy property and is the first hospitality development that Hot Springs has seen for many years. There will be a boat ramp and dock at Catherine’s Landing as well as available pontoon boats. In addition, the location to surrounding attractions such as Garvan Gardens, the Bath House Row in the historic district of Hot Springs and the horse races at Oaklawn were other reasons for choosing this location.
In the springtime, the resort will host an “open for celebration” event. More details will come later.
