  • This is a place everyone needs to see at least once in a lifetime. No words can describe it. We stayed in the camp ground and it was very nice and quiet. 
  • Spring, summer, winter or fall the drive to and around in Mount Magazine State Park is worth the drive. The overlooks are stunning. Be sure to bring your binoculars and cameras! My husband and son-in-...  read more »
  • We ended up here on a fluke during an internet search for caves but were pleasantly surprised by just how gorgeous these caves ended up being! Worth every penny. Tour was great. Springs were gorgeous! We really enjoyed the beauty of it all!!
  • Mount Magazine SP is gorgeous. We stayed in a cabin for two nights and can't wait to return. The cabin had everything we needed. Got to see deer, birds and raccoons. The view from the balcony was stunning day and night. It was wonderful to be able to show my kids the stars and the Milky Way. You can't miss the sunset from Cameron Bluff. Went to Cove Lake for a day and it was real pretty and relaxing. Wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.
  • Mount Magazine is a beautiful park with gorgeous views!! The trail is mostly wooded, but very pretty with lots of birds and deer to see. You drive up to the top of the mountain and park and mostly hike around the top, so there is not a lot of climbing to do. There is camping and beautiful cabins to rent. From what we could tell, all of the cabins had an amazing view! This is an all day park and definitely worth the trip!!
  • A great example of why Arkansas is the only state to ever secede from the union and still end up a decent place to live 150 years later. Because it's friggin gorgeous.
  • Wonderful place for breathtaking vistas. The cabins atop Mt Magazine have wonderful views! And a very interesting place for bird watchers. I've seen at least 7-8 different species of birds that I've never seen in the cities during my very short stay.
