  • Mount Magazine never fails to inspire and stir one inside. The trails are plentiful and fair walking . The views are always breathtaking. The fall colors viewed from Cameron Bluff are definite telephoto lens material! This last journey was made right in the middle the walking sticks mating weird. Everything on top of the mountain needs your help, so please be safe and clean... And donate if you can.
  • 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.
