“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

My absolute favorite place in the world.
A must see in the fall when the leaves are changing.
Or, a drive to Ponca to see the Elk and stay in a unique cabin in a cave is also a must. Great fishing too!

“Pedestal Rocks Scenic Area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

The scenic area consists of 2 hiking trails Pedestal Rocks (2.2 mi) and Kings Bluff (1.7 mi). Regardless of your hiking skills, it's worth the trip. You will see unique formations, called pedestals that were formed by weathering. Kings Bluff features a waterfall that flows over the ledge. The trail is located at the top of the Illinois Bayou River Drainage and offers great views and a history lesson in Arkansas geology.

At I-40 & 7 go north about 38 miles, Right onto Arkansas 16 for 6 miles. Sign for trailhead is on your right and there is a vault toilet.

Live less than a mile away, Great deer and turkey hunting. Lots of creeks and wilderness camping. Has a new visitor center on Hwy 21 about 3 miles north of Clarksville.

“Home away from home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2012

I spend a lot of time in this area looking for places to hunt, fish and just relax. Dirt roads are inviting to me so 4 wheel drive is my security blanket and used when necessary.

“Good place to visit but come prepared”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2012

Main Forest and trail options were huge. However unlike other outdoor parks, on-the-spot camping information and maps/directions were not readily available. Gas stations are old and spread out far from each other. Most importantly, Diesel is just as in demand in this place as Gasoline, so one can easily mistake one fuel pump for another when fueling a vehicle (so be vigilant when fueling in this area). Nice quiet hiking spots though.
