Take in a sweeping view of Hot Springs National Park and the Ouachita Mountains from the top of Hot Springs Mountain Tower. Give yourself a workout by climbing the steps of this 66 m (216 ft) tower, or opt for the more direct, less strenuous route via elevator. The observation level has an enclosed area as well as an open-air one, so you should be comfortable no matter the weather. Do be careful of wasps during warmer seasons, though, if you opt to take the stairs. To visit Hot Springs Mountain Tower and other attractions in Hot Springs, use our Hot Springs vacation generator.

  • We enjoyed out trip to the top of the tower. The lower floor on top of the tower was older but adequate for the history. 
  • Hold on to your lunch or just don't eat before going if you're afraid of heights. I really think that the tower should go into bungee jumping to get an all the time crowd! LOL This is a local historic...  read more »
  • We spent a week in the Hot Springs area and on our last day we visited the Mountain Tower. From the top you can see for 100's of miles with the city of Hot Springs layed out beneath you. There are inf...  read more »
  • Saw this tower thing and had to go see what it was. If you're not paying attention you'll miss the entrance to the "driveway." I call it a driveway because thankfully it's one way up and one way down. It's a fun drive up. The drive down is just as fun. Switchbacks galore! The gift shop at the base is very nice. All things you could ever want to help you remember your visit. Now I'm not one for heights and the idea of a glass walled elevator is not something I care for, so on the way up I faced the door. Yup, class A chicken here. Once on the top I really enjoyed the view. Looking down on the Hot Springs Central Avenue and all the hotels/bathhouses was spectacular. There was rain moving in from the west and that just added to the beauty. Bottom line - this needs to be on your list of places to experience when in Hot Springs.
  • The view is amazing!!! A must if you visit Hot Springs. Well worth your time to make either the hike or short drive up to the tower. It is a bit windy but not too bad. Not sure if it was the time of year (first week of July) but we didn't see wasps like others have posted.
  • I came here as a kid and was living in the very small segment of my life before my parents divorced and after 19 years I ended up visiting the same place not knowing I had been here before with my family and got some major deja vu. It's an amazing site with hardly any attention on the weekends while everyone is at church or at Oaklawn. I recommend it to the highest degree
  • Peaceful. Toward the sky. Just. Very beautiful. Took my children. Up. Very. Very nice visit. Relaxing. And nice get away
  • Even though I live in Texas I've been here several times and it does not disappoint. The views from here are amazing!! I wish admission was a bit cheaper but it's still worth the view!
