Great free state park on this beautiful mountain called Mt Nebo on the Arkansas River Valley with incredible views for miles. There are six trails one on the Rim by the top and the Bench around the middle are all the way around about four miles, then the springs all have trails to them. Rent a cabin or private home...

We were on Mount Nebo October 18, 2014. As others have reported, the two mile drive up was a bit unnerving and had my adrenaline flowing with the extremely sharp hairpin turns along with the 18% grade. At a couple of turns we were nearly stopped coming out of the turn and then having to push the gas to climb.... More

As stated below, this park is not for the faint of heart! The dive up is twisty, steep and slow. Would not recommend pulling camper or RV or anything much over 20 feet and you’d better have the power to pull an 18% grade. Once on top, you’ll want to take a drive around the mountain and enjoy the view... More

The top of Mount Nebo is a must see, but is not for the faint of heart. Large RVs cannot make the steep and winding climb, but it is wonderful for automobiles and motorcycles. Be sure to visit both ends of the mountain - sunrise and sunset point. The views are awesome. Wild game is plentiful.

We enjoyed the magnificent view from Mount Nebo. We stayed in Russellville since it's the closest developed city that has good restaurants and everything you need. Mount Nebo was very nice. It has several hiking trails and great views of the river valley. It's also worth visiting the Lake Dardanelle Visitor's Center located in Russellville. It has an excellent view... More

We have been hearing about this park through scouting connections for awhile - this was our first personal visit. The road is crooked and steep - not all vehicles/trailers are suited. We discovered that this was the 2nd oldest park in Arkansas. We found it a little unusual that there were personal properties interspersed in the park grounds – apparently... More

There are only a few high vantage points in this area of Arkansas, right near the river. This mountain is worthwhile for several reasons: 1) Sunsets. Every day about 45 minutes before the sun goes down, people from all over the mountain walk, ride bicycles and drive cars to sunset point. The views are amazing. 2) Trails. This mountain has...

It offers bicycling (street and mountain), horseback riding, dancing, bowling,,boating,,swimming pool, and 14 miles of hiking traits which range from easy to strenuous.. Mt..Nebo offers campsites as well as cabins. The... More

Extended family just spent the Memorial Day weekend at Mount Nebo and had a fantastic time. Rented three cabins: 64, 65 & 72 and was really pleased with the whole experience. If you can, get a rustic cabin with a view but be warned that the kitchens are "apartment sized" which made cooking for our family 15 a fun challenge.... More
