“Great Views and Trails”

Reviewed Mar 25, 2017

Overall Rating

This park is on top of the second highest peak in Arkansas. Views on top are amazing. There is a lodge with dining within walking distance of the campground. There are train rides, but only from Memorial Day to Labor Day. There is water and electric at the campground, but during our visit the water was not potable. Sites are pretty level and on asphalt, but most are terraced and some have fences around parts of the site. We had to move over a bit to allow access to our utility door. This made our front entry very narrow.

Hiking trails were beautiful. More trails are in the surrounding National Forest.

Special note: If you are afraid of heights, the drive up may not be for you. There are a couple of ways up. AR 272 is only about 2 miles up, but the road is narrow and wiggly with no shoulder. We unhooked our car and drove separately both up and down. On the way down, the car went ahead and blocked any uphill traffic so the motorhome could use the whole road. If I had to do it again, I would have the car block traffic for the drive up as well.

Lovers Leap is a 1.3 mile moderate trail with breathtaking views!  The first time we started behind the lodge, and the second time we hiked it in reverse starting in front of the lodge.  You captur...
