Are you flying to Arkansas? You’ll need to select Clinton National Airport/Little Rock National Airport (LIT) and either rent a car or order a shuttle transfer to Hot Springs. If you plan to rent a car and feel that the 57-minute ride to Hot Springs would be more fun with a few friends, make sure you share your arrival and departure details on GroupCarpool.

If you’re not interested in renting a car or haven’t found anyone to carpool with on our roomshare/rideshare document or CAMP 2017 Facebook group, here are a few options to consider:

Greyhound – The station in Little Rock is a 10-minute drive from the airport; the one in Hot Springs is 5 minutes away from The Arlington Hotel Resort and Spa. A bus goes between the two cities twice a day and tickets range in price from $20 to $30 one way.

Uber/Lyft – Depending on the demand at the time and whether anyone wants to pick up that fare, sourcing your transfer this way can run between $45 to $65 one way. If you go this route, it’s probably best to share the fare!

Shuttle (book in groups to get the best price!)-
Inter-city Transportation – $70 fixed rate (per person) or discounted rate offered for groups who book together, depending on number of passengers. Individual or group must make reservations at least 24 hours in advance.
Hot Springs Shuttle Services – $90 for the first person, $20 for each additional person (up to 8 passengers per shuttle). Individual or group must make reservations at least 24 hours in advance.
