What a beautiful place This was. The top of the mountain is the highest point in the state as well as 8 other states in the region. There are many places to camp in the mountain. Lots of lakes and high cliff tops to view amazing sights that go for miles. There is a lodge in the mountain rebuilt in 2003 that is just amazing a beautiful in bother the architecture and the AMAZING view upon the cliff face on which it stands. We were going to get a room to stay over night but every room was already filled! So book in advance of you're going to stay there. It was truly an awesome place for a honey moon or for the family or for you and some friends. I will most certainly be going back to mount magazine just to stay at the lodge.

This state park is situated between Ouachita National Forest and Ozarks National Forest. The highest point in Arkansas lies inside the park and reaching the summit is a fairly easy hike, though there aren't any scenic views from the summit. The park is wonderfully maintained and has a great restaurant inside the lodge. We'll worth stopping at.

Great place for camping. They have a magnificent lodge to stay in too, at a reasonable price. Very nice restaurant with great views overlooking the mountains. The campgrounds have full hookups and make you feel like you are in the woods. Lots of great trails to hike. Lots of fun for everyone. Great vacation spot.

Rooms and the rest of the lodge were wonderful. Meals and service at the restaurant were very poor. The view was amazing.
