Overview

High atop 2,753-foot Mount magazine, the state's tallest mountain, this scenic Arkansas state park was developed in the Mount Magazine Ranger District of the Ozark-St. Francis National Forest through a special use permit from the U.S. Forest Service. Sweeping vistas of broad river valleys, deep canyons, and distant mountains welcome outdoor enthusiasts to Arkansas's high point. This is a place to enjoy sightseeing, exploring the mountain and nature study. The park is a destination for outdoor sports and extreme adventure enthusiasts that offers rock climbing, rappelling, hang-gliding, mountain biking, horseback riding, backpacking, and ATV adventure. An ATV guide service is available. The park also offers overlooks, hiking trails, a picnic area with restrooms, pavilion, and a visitor center with an exhibit gallery and gift shop. The park offers 18 campsites (two Class AAA and 16 Class AA with tent only options). The Lodge features 60 guest rooms, a restaurant, conference center, business center, indoor heated swimming pool, fitness center and game room. Thirteen fully equipped cabins share the same bluff and seeping views of the valley as the lodge.

The view from the mount magazine lodge is very good. We did the Signal Hill trail which wasn't very scenic, except for some nice fall colors. The best thing was a lake on the way to Mount Magazine lodge. There was misty clouds travelling on...More

We were pretty disappointed to find that the tent camping area is very small. There are only two sites that have views. You’re also very close to the road. However, there is an unmarked trail right off the tent camping area that offers awesome views...More

Thank you for your question, I think all the cabins have a nice view. However, some folks do have their favorite. Cabin 1 has no other cabins bordering, except for #2 and it has great vistas to the east and west.
