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.

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

My wife and I renewed our vows and spent the weekend at the lodge! First, we love the outdoors, and the trails and views are majestic! There was a bit of snow on the ground, and it was very peaceful! The location is less than desirable for most, basically 10 miles from any type of shopping, but that is what... More

The lodge remains mostly as it was when it was built in 1974. Wonderful hotel staff, the restaurant definitely needs help. Food is good, but slow and the restaurant staff are just complacent. The lodge needs some upgrades, and effective February 1, 2012 the lodge will close for an 18 month remodel. The lodge will be expanded by 10,000 square... More

My wife and I stayed here one night after journeying the scenic talimena highway from Mena, AR up Highway 88. There were a lot of Vista View points to pull over and just look at the valleys and mountains portraying their fall foliage colors. The trip alone would be worth it if you ended up staying in a tent, but... More

This lodge as it is called is really very nice. Our room window someone had pulled the bottom out of track, and the park had screwed the windows down with screws previously (do not know when) and then someone with a phillips screwdriver unscrewed them out: the wind is known for blowing on the south with gusts of 35 o...
