  • While this is a fun place to say you've been, it's not for those who want to get away - unless you have a LOT of money. Don't get me wrong, it's a gorgeous place to visit. But if you want to tent camp and "rough it," this may not be the state park for you. It's a good one and done type of campsite - a been there done that, don't really need to ever go there again. If you want to see something beautiful and still be in the mountains, I HIGHLY recommend Mount Nebo or Petit Jean state parks. They are beautiful, much cheaper, and still in the mountains. There are also more rock outcroppings at these state parks.
  • Great location. Nice and friendly staff. Definitely worth staying in the cabins with hot tub. Cabins are comfy and makes u feel adventurous. It offers lots of activities.
  • This is a beautiful & enchanting place. It offers a great view of the River Valley in Arkansas. The park itself has great walking trails & the staff is friendly & very helpful. I love this park.
  • What's NOT to love? We went here yesterday for a family birthday. The cabin was VERY reasonably priced, well-appointed with a large fireplace, and a porch with a (awesome) view. The cabin looks woodsy - maybe rustic - without being at all dirty, cheap or grungy. To the contrary, the lighting, the television, and the kitchen/bath equipment were thoughtfully chosen. There weren't a lot of crowds there, so wifi was really pretty solid. I understand it is less reliable in the busy season. The restaurant was much better than we'd have expected from a state park facility: really delicious. We had spinach and artichoke dip. It was deliciously creative: not expected from an appetizer. The service was excellent. The main lodge is quite majestic and charming. We will be back.
  • Great views/trails. Hiking trails with varying levels of difficulty. Campgrounds on site.
