  • A small state park at the west end of Talimena Scenic Drive and Ouachita Hiking Trail. Great place for a base camp. Clean facilities and miles and miles of 1st class hiking, biking and ATV trails. Ama...  more »
  • Did this drive November 3 and it was so pretty. The prettiest part of the drive is the Oklahoma side.  more »
  • Stay here quite a bit when coming through town. There is always a hot shower and clean bathroom every time. The folks who take care of the park are friendly and care about the facility and have been for years. Great trails all around this place as well.
  • Well maintained facilities, friendly rangers, nice tent sites. Went out to hike part of the Ouachita Trail and were able to leave our vehicle in the parking lot. The bathrooms had a shower and were much cleaner than we excepted which was very welcome after three days of hiking. The trail is gorgeous although we would have like to know there was a boulder field! Great weekend and will definitely be returning.
