REVIEWS OF Mount Magazine State Park IN Arkansas

John Workman

Mt Magazine state park is the standard by which all public access parks should be judged. There are facilities and activities for all ages. The Lodge at Mt Magazine is first rate and a great place for a weekend vacation. If you enjoy hiking and horse back riding this is also your go to place. Only Hobbs State park in AR is any comparison to Mt Magazine. The views are amazing; plus Magazine Mountain is the highest point between the Appalachian Mts and the Rockies. Put it on your “to visit” list.

Terry H

Great cabin, great service at the restaurant, great views. Food was good but not great. Price for both the restaurant and cabin were a bit pricey. We stayed in cabin 9. It was WAY big for the 2 of us and our 2 dogs. It would easily accommodate 2 families with kids. With that said, you cannot go wrong here. Beautiful views, great hiking, fun ATV tours, and local nature destinations.

Clarence Middleton

Beautiful,senic, breathtaking views. Cabins lodge , great get away. Nature trails wildlife .

Kimberly Jenae

Absolutely breathtaking. Loved being able to see for miles.

JP Kelly

Its epic in every category. The lodge us incredible, you can go see the views from all sides of the mountain, go eat Dinner at the restaurant and head down the mountain. The food here is outstanding! We got lucky with all you can eat buffet of prime rib, Fried catfish, bacon wrapped quail, fried calamari, grits, spinach, and many other incredible items on the menu. And then you get to eat in a restaurant that has an absolutely spectacular 3000 foot View. Best part is you don't have to rent a room to eat at the restaurant. This place is definitely worth going.

Rebecca McFarland

Absolutely breathtaking scenery and it's free to drive up!

Katherine Anderson

So beautiful! Very clean park and campsites! We went in winter and it was breath taking! It's defently a place you have to vist in every season. The gift shop also had some of the best prices I've seen. The staff at the visitor center were very polite and so friendly! I would recommend this park for abyone, there's so much to do!

Cheryl Bunk

It was days of hiking, high winds, and cooking outside before the winds came up! My pup and I probably walked a couple of miles two times every day except one. Wasn't quite spring on the mountain so not many flowers blooming or leaves on the trees. I had a fear that during the high winds some limbs might be on top of my slideouts but have no ladder on my motorhome. I ask everyone coming and going through the campground that I could borrow. No luck so I called the Visitors Center but because of liability they could not help me. I was so worried! But, there are good folks still willing to help. A gentleman from the Visitors Center brought his ladder the day I was to leave and checked for limbs. I am so thankful to him and the ladies at the Visitors center for their concern and help. So, not only is it a beautiful State Park but it has beautiful employees.

Lindsey Lowman

Gorgeous views, great picnic areas, all-around one of the better state parks in Arkansas.

Timothy Dickey

Enjoyed my visit and will go again April 2019.

Heath Talley

Beautiful views, lots of nature, and a wonderful experience, everytime

Biswajit Nayak

Good for short trip who loves nature

Shelley Tyler

This is an amazing hidden secret in Arkansas. Many people who live in that state do not know it even exists. All of the rooms at the lodge face the ridge. Therefore you see the sunrise and the sunset from any balcony of any room. No view is obstructed. It is absolutely a gem right in the middle of the Ozarks.


The resort is booked up year-round for a reason. Beautiful morning views and butterflies everywhere

Jacob Brady

Beautiful hike to the peak. Almost 0.5mi from parking lot to the peak. Not great views as the peak is low and wooded, but a nice hike to stretch the legs after a drive. We couldn’t get a room at the lodge, but it looked really nice and probably had incredible views.

Scott M

Beautiful views and the lodge is very nice

Wynn Farley

Loved my visit here. I even got a tpur hike with one awesome and very knowledgeable park interpreter. Thanks!

Keith Hill

Beautiful place to visit. Fun hikes and nice cabins to spend the night.

Bill Chann

Nice ride, beautiful view!

Eliseo Flores

Beatiful place to see the sunset.

Sean Gibson

Such a beautiful location. There are hotel rooms in the lodge, cabins that allow pets, and camping sites...something for every taste of outdoor living experience. The staff is wonderful. Knowledgeable about the best trails for your ability level. Extraordinarily friendly and willing to help you get the most out of the state park.

Leslie Griffiths

Very nice facilities

Leslie Wilson

Beautiful. We didn't stay the night, our visit was just a day trip.

Jeremy Skaggs

State Park is beautiful and plenty to do.


We spent our 28th wedding anniversary at the Lodge and loved it. The Lodge, room, and views were beautiful! We can't wait to visit again.

B Fulmer

Highest place in Arkansas I think great views very windy when we went up

Gabriel Romo

great place to getaway for a long weekend the view is beautiful great fall colors clean rooms.

Steven Rust

Breathtaking views, wildlife in the backyard, great food, great service and an great atmosphere. If she's working, ask for Sage at the restaurant. She is an exceptional server with a polite, friendly personality. If you're in the area, make this a "To-Do"!!

Tim W

Great ride on the motorcycle and beautiful scenery. Spend some time at the overlooks along the way and enjoy the views and soak up some nature.

Jeffery White

Nice place and well maintained. Hope to return soon to explore a little more.

Dan Hennessey

Beautiful views. Wonderful lodge and cabins. Lots of hiking trails. Highest point in Arkansas.

Rick Mannon

a wonderful & beautiful place but not as gorgeous as Kathy Clark

Terry Brady

Mount Magazine is beautiful and there are plenty of things to do!!

JoAnne Owens

Beautiful campground almost at the top of the mountain. Full hookups and lots of space. Hiking trails close by.

Chrystal McKinnie

It's a pretty Mountain, my family is from this area and going to the Mountains is like coming home for me, if I don't make a trip up there each visit, I just don't feel complete with my time back home.

Evan Beavers

Beautiful views, well maintained trails, and clean facilities.

Amit Grover

Beautiful state park, the scenic drive and the lookouts are totally awesome

H May

Beautiful place and more than worth the drive.

Tim C

Lots of great trails. Beautiful in the summer, cant wait to take my kiddo in the fall. I know they will love the view from the lookout positions. Well worth the trip.

Jessica Rensing

We go here every year. It’s a great place to get away, especially in the summer, because it’s generally a little cooler up there than elsewhere in Arkansas. The park rangers do pretty great educational tours which we always take advantage of. I recommend the star gazing lecture they do on the side of the mountain. We go every time. There’s also plenty of hiking and the campsites are clean. We like to camp in different parks every year, but we always make a point to come back to Mt. Magazine. It’s always worth revisiting. Totally recommend!

Gwen Brooks

Beautiful place! Small weddings are great here.

Iganaka 77

Truly one of the most beautiful places I've ever seen. The view is amazing.

Dena Chestnut

Very beautiful views!

Melissa Lou Gregory

This place is gorgeous. I love the serenity and scenery. BEAUTIFUL!!!!!


Glad to have such a place in Arkansas. Our tax dollars well spent. The hotel is so beautiful I haven't stayed yet. I did tour the mountain and ate at the restaurant. There are spots for tents, RV, and day use areas. There are cabins available to rent and hotel with pool and restaurants. Hangglider launch area. Mountain bike rentals.

Belinda Maxwell

What a beautiful view and awesome staff. It will leave you breathless.

Manoj Ramachandran

One of the beautiful places to see fall color in Arkansas at an elevation of 2250. This mount has couple of view points from where fall color can be enjoyed. Ideal for a day trip from Little rock. Pack your lunch enjoy the scenic drive to the top and have your lunch over looking fall color. Lodging and cabins are available for an overnight stay.

Karun Gahlawat

nice place. lots of trails. beautiful sunrise and set. there is a back packer trail about 10 miles deep in national forest if you want to try. lodge has a restaurant with decent menu and good quality food. bit pricey which is expected. cabins come with hot tub and fire place.


The restaurant here is the best, and the views are amazing! Some of the hiking trails are pretty short, which is great for older travelers or families.

Blanca Almaraz

Beautiful view and small hikes

Jeff Golias

Great place to visit and camp. Restrooms were clean and well lit. The lodge was beautiful and well staffed. The food was good. One of the steaks was way overcooked, but the staff corrected it. I would certainly visit again.

Gilbert Navarro

Very scenic. The food at the lodge is always tasty.

Kevin Hollis

Very scenic/easy drive. Multiple overlook stops on the way up, beautiful views. Once near the top multiple campsites with benches and grills. The restaurant was the highlight, decent and terrific service. Very easy hike to the highest point in Arkansas, sadly no view once there but still a nice hike.

Bowerick Wowbagger

Cabin, hot tub when sun came up, beautiful view! What more can you ask for!

Raymond Rauber

This has got to be one of the best locations to stay. Great food and the views are spectacular. Very clean and spacious. Make a reservation.

Lynn Lynn

Amazon views and cool trails! Check out the Lodge restaurant. They have omelets and pancakes so big that a family of 4 can eat off one one plate! Not only was it plentiful, it was good also. I highly, highly recommended Me Mount Magazine.

Scott Michael

Great trails, but if you rely on trail blazers and signage there are very little

samita gazi

Very well organized and beautiful site. Has no mobile network when you try to go there, but has sufficient network in rest place.

Elizabeth Hughes

Always an amazing place to go

Jennifer Bird

Mount Magazine is beautiful and serene experience, and despite it being the summer, the temperature was an amazingly cool. I loved watching the clouds roll in and so much wildlife. The cabins were terrefic: hot tubs on the deck, indoor and outdoor dining space, washing machine and dryer, fully stocked kitchen supplies.

Jackie Henning

Spacious rooms with stunning views. Lots of little places inside lodge to sit and relax with the view or read a good book. Rockers on back patio where the view is on full display. Nice staff. Small gift shop has cute things. Super clean. Love the giant fireplaces. The food in the restaurant is so much better than I expected. The rolls were so fresh, tasted and smelled wonderful.

Thomas Brown

Beautiful scenery and good service.

Pam Evans

Beautiful area, but campground is not being maintained well. Same rusted out grill as the year before, grass at campsites was tall and needed mowed and weedeating, restrooms were disgustingly dirty the entire 5 night stay even after repeatedly complaining about them and low on toilet paper. Our firepit was full and people were complaining about the trash bins being full. It's sad to see one of our favorite campgrounds go downhill.

arpit lasod

The best place for bike trailing and amazing views. Its a nice foggy place in the month of June if it rains.

Danny Steele

This place never gets old. Love coming up here and the breathtaking views.

Robin Y

spectacular views out of every window. the lodge is decorated for Christmas. There's original art on display for the month. This state park has a long history and this is the second Lodge built there. Out of the way however worth the drive. there is also a very nice restaurant there.

Eli C

The food was good however the attendant’s at the concession stand at Cove Lake were rude, you can tell they were aggravated because we ordered stuff

Jonathan McClure

Magazine Mt. offers some of the best views of The Natural State from every angle imaginable. The road up the mountain to the visitors center has several lookout points granting a beautiful view of the landscape, with even more good views at the mountains peak. Hiking trails are well marked, cleared, and easy to follow. Staff at the visitors center are also knowledgeable on both current AR events, other state park news, and goings-on in their own park.

Thomas Chaney

Such a nice, well maintained park. Well stocked visitors center and gift shop. The overlooks are marvelous. The highest point in Arkansas is here and easy to reach with a short walk.

Chrissy Sorrell

Beautiful place! The lodge was pretty as and the food was good, long wait though. We were just visiting didn't stay there but might in the future. They have camping and cabins as well.

Kelly Frigstad

Always great food, with a great view from the wonderful dining room.

Ron Siebenmorgen

It is spectacular!! The views are amazing. There's plenty of hiking trails. You can rent a cabin that sits at the edge of the cliff. Plus, each room at the Lodge faces the cliff.

Jaime Hay

Nice park! Enjoyed driving through and picnicking. Many beautiful scenic points. A helpful park ranger in the visitors center got us going in the right direction!

John Edgmon

Pretty drive we didn't stop this time. Last time we ate at restaurant over priced and food was a big disappointment service was nothing to brag about.

Matthew Noble

Always so gorgeous! The Lodge is kept clean and has a very friendly staff.

Megan Quarles - Kelly

Beautiful state park!! Can't wait to go back!!! The ground were very clean! It seems to be well kept!


The beauty of Arkansas never stopped to amaze me including this one. We wanted a campsite with water but only RV sites have water. We took it as bathhouse also only in the RV campsite area. There is no park entrance fee. The views are better in primitive camping areas. However all the beautiful trails and views are easily accessible from either of the sites. The temperature in summer is pleasant here the views are breathtaking. Definitely must visit. Next time I am planning on taking a cabin as they face the valley with beautiful view.

Naomi Smith

Absolutely amazing! Beautiful, gorgeous, breath taking aren't sufficient for the views here. Patrick, the State Park trooper, was absolutely awesome in giving us insight and making our first experience very memorable. We're definitely going to be making regular trips there. Thank you!

Kay Elizabeth Hughes Marchand

Fantastic! Mt. Magazine is peaceful and beautiful. Want to go back soon!

David Darling

Had a great time during our visit. Did some hiking on a beautiful day. Ate a very nice meal at the restaurant.

H Page

Very good place to hike and then just to be peacfull

Justin Nave

Exellent honking trails for beginners to advanced, cove creek restaurant has the best burger in logan county and proably all of AR

Wendy Pena

This is a very serene park with gorgeous views. Lots of hiking trails and biking areas. The campground is very clean and so is the bath house. We loved this place! Wifi is pretty non-existent and cell phone reception is spotty. That just meant more quality family time! We will definitely be back!

Ritesh Tarway

One of the best kept natural secrets in our natural state !!! I liked the trails, wild life, flowers and butterflies. We hiked for more than 10 miles on different trails and the views were really awesome. Next time, I will try to stay for couple of days to cover what I could not see in this trip. I checked cabins, lodge and camping area, all of them were nice and figured that they remain pretty much booked, so If I want to stay there I will have to keep looking and plan for it in better way.

Joseph Gumeny

Great place for camping, hiking, etc. Rangers and staff are wonderful. Cool info building with gift shop. Only issue is no view from the top of Signal Hill, the tallest place in AR. Just a sign. That means you made it!

Tom Rankin

Great views from the pull off, easy trail to the summit, well marked.

Jason M

Amazing views from the lodge and cabin area.

Mark Johnston

Had a relaxing hike to the highest point in Arkansas. Loge has good food and beer to finish off your day of exploring.

Joe Bob

Beautiful peaceful and quiet. Great for hiking biking and camping

Cheryl Brunk

This is a beautiful place. Been here three days and have done a lot of trail walking with my Yorkie. There is a lake at the bottom of Mt Magazine where there is swimming, fishing, primitive camping, and other activities. I'm in the campground with a few hookups higher up on Mt. Magazine. It must be a busy place on weekends because I couldn't book a full week. However, it is very peaceful right now. I love this place any time of year!!

larry qualls

The view is to die for. Eating at the restaurant is a must. Get the salmon its a wow in every bite.

Wanda Hall

Mount Magazine has many adventures to explore The Lodge is beautiful.The people are friendly.And the restaurant has an amazing menu.Many tourists enjoy the mountain and the scenery surrounding it.Magazine mountain has always been a destination of choice for my family.

Glenn Allinder

We go there about six or seven times a year. The last two times the food was just fair. We have been going up on the holidays not so sure this year.

tom warren

Excellent, but I could have used another pillow

Gina Hunt

Beautiful Lodge and the Views are Spectacular!! The Rock Formations are Gorgeous!

Md. Afzalul Karim

1st time in mount magazine state park.We camped there and the place was very piece of advice, confirm the campground before you reached there.there are few hiking trails but didn't able to make it.we are just there for one night.If you go to the lodge you will get a panoramic view of ozark forests

Rick Sparks

One of Arkansas's beautiful State Parks!

Todd Dedmon

Adam Walker

Had dinner at the lodge. Very nice atmosphere, awesome view, and friendly staff. Prices were cheaper than expected, party of 8 was around $100 with appetizers. Would absolutely go again.

Secretlynanaseharuka Cosplay

We had such a great time here as always! Came last year with my group and we had a blast too. Stayed for 2 days 1 night and the beds were very comfy. Loved the hot tub and pool area we had a lot of fun and relaxation from the stressful week previously. The lobby area with all the chairs was really pretty and I enjoyed seeing the breathtaking views. The clouds even came in and covered everything which was actually really neat to see! The staff were very kind and helpful when we asked questions (thank you also for putting up with the loud kids we brought along!) The trails were beautiful and loved all the nature we experienced. It's a great place to escape to and find some peace when your life is so chaotic and I can always count on a good time here ❤


Outstanding park with great hiking and scrambling and most importantly, climbing. The Lodge is just a quick walk from the crag, you can even just rap down and have a zero approach climb. The Lodge is a great choice for accommodation and food. Hit the restaurant for food no matter where you stay, buffet on Friday and Saturday night, also breakfast buffet in the morning with some killer bacon. Basically I could tell you more about this park, but your time would be better spent going to their website and reserving a campsite, booking the lodge, or getting in your car and driving there. Now. Get in the car. Drive there. Climb there and hike there. You can mail me a thank you card when you get home.

San Prak

Awesome view.

Michael Morrow

Excellent restaurant, expect 12-20$/plate, nice buffet, salad bar. trails below offer outstanding photo ops

Ang Cooper

Baxter Billiot

My favorite park in Arkansas hands down. Make sure to stay at the lodge or cabins

M Williams

Absolutely beautiful. Lodge and views were amazing. Restaurant, service and food was great. Highly recommend!

Heather Anon

Highly recommend. I spent 2 1/2 days there and was not disappointed. The views are indescribable and the trails were well maintained. I forgot to check availability before I arrived and the state park was fully booked but I was able to get a site in the overflow section. Tent camping, no electricity or water (just how I preferred it). Showers are available a short drive away at the "regular" camping section. My tent site overlooked the valley and a short trail led to an outcropping where I had a 180 degree view of the sunrise. A small stream ran down rocks nearby and I was able to collect and filter cold water. I recommend you treat your clothes with a tick repellent (like permethrin) and make sure your animals are on tick prevention. The reason for only 4 stars is that the bathroom in the overflow site was so vile I never used it. It was basically an upgraded outhouse, which was fine, except the stench when you walked in was too much and there were dozens of tiny gnats flying around the toilet seat. It was safer to practice "leave no trace" and go in the woods. I would be interested to know if the park ever comes through with lye to dump in the "toilets" to control the smell and bugs.

Zachary Lawson

Went to Mt. Magazine this weekend with the family, just happened to have a car show that day. The view on blue mountain lake is gorgeous and the trails around the top of the mountain are fun for the whole family. The drive is very nice not a lot of sharp turns with several really nice views along the way

Richard Redmerski

Beautiful views, at 2,753 ft. Highest point in Arkansas.

David Huggins

My favorite state park!


A great place for awesome views fun camping and lodging

This Arkansas state park is the flagship of the state parks. A visit during each season is uniquely awesome.

Joshua Lee

Absolutely amazing vistas. Beautiful and friendly place to come and relax

Bryan Patrick

Great lodge and visitor center. A great place to cool off during the summer.

Chuck Wiles

A nice garlic flavor. A great pizza. I had thin crust. Thre sauce tasted like fresh tomatoes . Family atmosphere, nice place.

Robert Perkins

This is the highest point in Arkansas. The views are spectacular. I am ready to return and hit the hiking trails with the family.

Anita Kingree

My husband and I visited Mount Magazine State Park in November, and we really enjoyed our visit there. We hiked Mount Magazine and then had dinner at the Lodge. The views were spectacular and the food was great as well!

Rebecca Hardgrave

Great place for hiking, or for events or seminars. Be careful driving up at dusk or night because you will probably encounter herds of deer. The views are great. The stars are so br6at night without much light pollution

Cindy Petted

This may be a state park but it has the feel of a National Park. Great accomodations at the Lodge. It's a dry county so BYO or join their membership. The restaurant has very good variety of dishes and the staff is super friendly. We hiked 8 miles of the trails and found them clearly marked and well maintained. Not much for mountain biking but the ride to the West ridge has some awesome views.

Tracy Geoffroy

Very nice place with breath taking views!
