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

Mt. Nebo is just one of the Tri-peaks that host events. Rich with history. Cyclists, runners and hikers train year 'round. Hang gliders and campers favor the spectacular views of the Arkansas River Valley. Favorite venue for weddings and reunions. Local bands and experts bring guest activity frequently... sunset concerts and evening with astronomers are just a few. The state... More

When we checked in to our campsite Holly greeted us and was so nice. She noticed our campsite didn't have the best views and she switched us to an open site that had spectacular sunrise views. We hiked everywhere abc the views are gorgeous. Even the actual campgrounds and bathrooms were super clean. I'd recommend Mount Nebo to anyone.

Mount Nebo State Park is a gorgeous state park with incredible scenic views. Most may knock the twisty switchback curves at an 18% grade; however, the twisting two-mile drive is definitely worth the effort. I first visited Mount Nebo in 1995, and I swam in their public swimming pool (for a nominal fee). The water is clean, and the pool... More

Mount Nebo State Park is one of the best places in the state of Arkansas for hiking. The Rim Trail gives a great view of the entire area for the duration of the hike. There are other trails that are very challenging and rewarding when you complete them. Visiting Petit Jean State Park which is less than a hour away... More

Each year, we visit Arkansas in October to ride the scenic byways, and each year, we find another great place to ride. This is one of them, especially if you combine it with visits to other area state parks like Mt. Magazine and Petit Jean State Parks. The road to the top of Mt. Nebo is short (under 2 miles)... More

Beautiful views along the many well maintained trail systems all around the mountains perimeter. The park also has great camp sites set up all along the trails, if you're wanting to sleep out under the stars. It is not uncommon to walk up on large numbers of wildlife while hiking any one of the great trails. Or if your quiet... More

Our favorite camping stop in Arkansas! In early September it was cool after the sun went down and I had to find my fleece vest. Definitely needed my sleeping bag! The stars were beautiful as was the sunset and sunrise. We had a beautiful view right from our tent campsite. There are great hiking trails. The drive up the mountain... More

We took a family Labor Day camping trip from the DFW area. Still very warm, even if supposedly cooler on the mountain. But other than the few hours in the afternoon when it's just hot, the trip was great. The park staff is super friendly, even had an ice cream social w homemade ice cream. The pool is a good... More
