Mount Nebo State Park

Description

Rising 1,350 feet above the Arkansas River Valley, Mount Nebo offers spectacular views. The mountain has been attracting revelers and settlers for more than 100 years, when a resort hotel was operated on the mountaintop for steamboat travelers. In 1933, a portion of the mountain was chosen as a park site, and logs and stones from Mount Nebo were used by the Civilian Conservation Corps to construct many of the park's bridges, trails, charming rustic-style cabins and pavilions. The park offers campsites and fully equipped cabins with kitchens. Handicapped-accessible sites are available. Reservations are recommended for all campsites and are required for the cabins. Fourteen miles of trails encircle Mount Nebo. A pool, tennis courts, picnic areas, playgrounds, extra-large enclosed and small open pavilions, and a ball field are available. The visitor center houses exhibits, bicycle rentals, and a store. Please note that many private homes are also on the mountain. The park is seven miles west of Dardanelle on AR 155. Warning: No RV's or trailers over 24 feet should attempt the climb up to this park because it is steep, winding, and narrow, and could be hazardous to your vehicle and your health.
