I’ve had several people ask me in the past week if the I-30 Travel Park in Benton is out of business, since nearly all the RVs have left the premises. I am close to getting the complete answer, so I love you guys, but you can stop contacting me about it now and just watch for the update on MySaline. I hope y’all are going to share this with everyone you know, because it took some digging to find out the facts. Read on for what I know so far…
A couple from Beebe, Arkansas owns the Travel Park. After getting no answer on a phone call to their business phone, and after finding their social media and website abandoned, I dug deeper and finally found a recent review of the business at CampgroundReviews.com.
A member on that website left a review recently that stated, “I-30 Travel Park in Benton, Arkansas will be closing at the end of April, 2019. The property has been sold and everything will be bulldozed to make room for a car dealership.”
I traced the ownership of the travel park to a Mr. and Mrs. Marple who also own Marple Auto Sales in Beebe. I wouldn’t assume that they will be the owners of the reported car dealership, if indeed it will be a car dealership. But the nature of the internet is that I can come back and tell you the rest of the story when and if I hear back from the Marples.
