I have been here many times and was a little disappointed to see the lodge closed for remodeling where I was there recently. It is a good rest stop along the Talimena trail.

The view is grand. The food was great, rooms vintage but after remodel we will have to see. Multi million dollar project. Should be grand and glorious once again.

My husband and I camped here for our first time over the long weekend. We are so amazed with this campground!!! Super friendly staff, very clean and neat and a very relaxed atmosphere with a nice view! The bath house is large and clean. Everyone walks around and visits like we are all old friends! I'm so glad we have... More

The campground was very well kept up and located on the Talimena Scenic Hwy. The short road up to the campground off of US270 (preferred way if you're driving an RV) is more like a wide driveway but very doable. There is an old steam locomotive on display at the state park along with a small train that campers can... More

We stayed here in the RV park area last weekend. It was beautiful very well kept, clean bathrooms! Few people were there so not everyone top of each other like other RV parks. Park volunteers were informative and nice too. Originally we wanted to camp in the Winding Stairs Camp Ground but when we get there it was closed! It... More

The drive through this park on the border of the Arkansas/Oklahoma line is beautiful with lots of places to stop and just enjoy the view! WE did stop by the lodge which is currently under renovation but should be opening again soon! We have pictures with totem poles made by the Quichata Indians and there are lots of rock stores...

I liked the little train ride there as did my wife and 3 year old daughter. The little store offered hand dipped blue bell ice cream which was nice. Clean park with not a whole lot to see there but a nice stop however. Lodge is still closed but wasn't interested in that aspect of it anyway.
