A LITTLE ABOUT US

About Whitewater RV Park

Whitewater RV Park in Mountain View, Arkansas has been around for decades. Many campground friendships have been formed and solidified under the shade of our trees. It’s our understanding that there’s a whole generation of people who consider this their home away from home. We are looking to continue that tradition of campers turned into family!

About the Owners

We are the Wadley family. We have camped in Mountain View as a family since the late 90’s, even though Glynn remembers visiting in the 80’s. We all have a passion for family and for travel. What could be more fitting than buying a business centered around families and travelers? 😉 Scroll over the images to read more about us.

Glynn Wadley

Glynn has been a barber in Little Rock since 1985. He and Becky have been happily married since 1991. They have three beautiful adult children together and one son-in-law so far, with their first grandchild due in July of 2020. Glynn is always good for a laugh and never misses a great opportunity for a perfect photobomb! He’s also multi-talented when it comes to fixing cars and even dabbles in carpentry.

Becky Wadley

Becky and Glynn have been married since 1991. Being the mother to their three great kids is her life’s greatest accomplishment. Becky has an RV blog, builds websites, and works part time in Little Rock as a personal assistant. She began playing guitar in 1983 and can’t wait to spend time learning folk music in Mountain View!

Austin Wadley

Austin is Glynn and Becky’s only son and will be managing Whitewater RV Park. He began playing trombone in his middle school band in 2007. Austin has a pitch perfect ear and loves all things music. He’s never met an instrument he won’t try, but plays djembe and cajone, trombone, guitar, and has recently taken up the mandolin.
