  • Such a beautiful state park. The raod up can be a bit hairy for a novice pulling a trailer but once you get past the tight curve it's not bad. The park itself is just breathtaking! Our RV spot was spacious and not at all close to other campers (which we prefer). We had full hookups so we didn't use their facilities. The welcome center has a few items should you need something in a pinch. We can't wait to go back!
  • This was a wonderful experience! We spent a few days here and were able to hike many of the trails, visit the caves, and explore many of the naturally beautiful things that make Arkansas the natural state. Sunsets were spectacular and the memories are amazing. As soon as we got home the kids asked when we could go back!
