We loved our stay at the Queen Wilhelmina Lodge. We arrived on a Monday afternoon and enjoyed hiking and walking around the park. It was hot hot hot everywhere else, but at least 12 degrees cooler on top of the mountain. We had a King room. The room was lovely and very clean. The bed was extremely comfortable - we... More

Rooms were wonderful, very new and clean. Everyone was very nice. Buffet was pricey and not the greatest. Food was bland and not much to choose from. Supper was about $14 each. Guess you're not at the lodge to eat, but it would be nice if food was better.

We stayed there on their first night of Reopening following extensive renovation, I mean the whole place is brand new inside. The Queen sits stop the second highest mountain in Arkansas & the views are breathtaking. Often called "The Castle in th Clouds" we watched clouds go by as we ate breakfast. We highly recommend this beautiful place

No trip to SE Oklahoma and the Mena, Arkansas area is complete without a visit to the Queen Wilhelmina Lodge (QWL) and State park located just off scenic Highway 1 (if you're coming in from Talahina or Hwy 259 N, in SE OK). This place is visually one of the most stunning areas you will ever believe exists in Arkansas... More

Acturally, did not visit Mena and the area. Recently moved from Arkansas to Nevada and were simply looking back at the many places we enjoyed while living in that wonderful place called Arkansas. We miss it terribly. But, we are close to our grandchildren and that makes the move worthwhile. Love your site and always use it when we travel.

I lived in Arkansas until I was 8 yrs old. Never knew about these beautiful places. In 2012 we had a stay at Queen Wilhelmina Lodge and liked it so much we intend to return as soon as it opens again. Since we didn't have Wilhelmina last year we went to Paris Arkansas and Mt Magazine Lodge, a couple of... More

As of May 26,2013 The historic lodge and restaurant are being updated with larger window's and updated accommodations. The view will be breathtaking, probably rivaling the one at mount magazine. These Arkansas State Parks are real mind blowers and should be visited.

We have stayed at the QW several times over the last few years, and it's never a disappointment. A very quaint little inn type place where the service is spectacular. You get the whole small town feel and hospitality. The place is very quiet and relaxing - you can venture out into the state park on one of various hikes... More

Thank you for you feedback regarding Queen Wilhelmina State Park, I agree it is a wonderful place to relax or join the programs and guided hikes led by the park interpreter to learn more about this fascinating landscape. Queen Wilhelmina State Park Lodge closed on March 5, 2012, to undergo a major renovation. It will reopen in summer 2013. This... More

We stayed at the state park and absolutely enjoyed it to the max. It is a little off the beaten path, but totally memorable. The hikes and views are great! They have a miniature train that goes around the park for kids. At times it actually reminded me of the Smokies. There was mist floating by as we were at... More
