We stopped at the Queen Wilhelmina Lodge for a break while riding the Talimena Trail. The newly renovated building has a spectacular view of the overlook, made even better because of the new orientation of the common room with windows in the front and the doors on the side. As I recall, the doors used to be in the front.... More

Had a multi night stay at the lodge. Rooms were clean, quiet, and spacious. I would recommend a second story room because the view overlooking the valley and distant mountains made the stay even more enjoyable. The lodge has an elevator. There is a Resturaunt attached which served good food with large portions. There also is a trail network, picnic... More

I visited here with my daughters, ages 25 and 9. The views were wonderful, with nice seating areas to enjoy the views. We had a heat advisory while there, but in the evening it was quite cool with wonderful breezes. We also enjoyed hiking the trails. The restaurant served home style food at a good price. Comfortable beds and clean... More

The lodge is very clean, big and modern. The food is also very tasty and the rooms are really clean. The location is the best part as it is on top of a mountain. The pillows are really soft and your head sinks into them so you might want to sleep on two or something.

We had a family reunion here last weekend and WOW! The best thing about the lodge and state park is that there is so much room to move around and roam! We had a large group with a number of children and it never felt like we were all squished into a small space! We spent time at the playground... More

We recently spent 3 nights at QW. Our room, a king on the 2nd floor was spacious and immaculate. We spent the days exploring the area, driving the Talimena Scenic Byway and stopping at the scenic overlooks to read the historical signs, and hiking in Winding Stair and Kerr Parks. We drove the very rough unpaved road to Little Missouri... More

Scenic summer weekend in the park's lodge for family reunion. Great overall experience. Renovated lodge has great rooms with a view, sitting areas inside and out, and an excellent restaurant with a variety of dishes and desserts - all cooked by a chef on site. Staff at restaurant and lodge were very friendly and service oriented. Jack was especially caring... More

The only weak point was the cafeteria; however, as this was a State Park lodge, we weren't going for the cuisine, but for the hikes. It was wonderful to walk in, hot and grimy after the day, to air conditioning, a clean fresh room and a modern bathroom with a great shower. If you are with kids or a group... More

Mena is dry County, the closet place to get beer was in Hevener Oklahoma which is about a half hour drive from Mena. Usually when people leave Oklahoma they get real beer from... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Queen Wilhelmina State Park Lodge on 2,681-foot Rich Mountain, Arkansas’s second highest peak, reopened on July 1, 2015, following renovation. The lodge features all new windows that will be larger to frame the views from Rich Mountain of the surrounding Ouachita Mountains. Our visitors can enjoy the more wide open views from all the lodge’s public rooms, including the restaurant and all the guest rooms. The exterior of the lodge features shingles and stonework. The lodge was expanded from 25,881 square feet to 37,029 square feet to include the addition of a new hearth room with wood-burning fireplace, two additional guest rooms increasing the total to 40, and more space within all the rooms. Two guest rooms on each floor at the west end include gas fireplaces and spa tubs. Three are barrier-free to meet the needs of visitors with disabilities. They include Queen, King, King with spa tub and gas fireplace, and King Suite choices. The upstairs meeting facility increased in size and includes a balcony overlooking the south view from the mountain. Public restrooms are located nearby. An elevator was added to the lodge, as well as more stairwells. A wrap-around porch on the building’s south side will provide visitors with comfortable outdoor space. A new porch was added at the west end. And a new fire protection system covers the entire building. Other improvements include a new energy efficient heating and air-conditioning system, energy saving lighting throughout, solar hot water, and other such features. A new laundry will serve the housekeeping staff. Queen Wilhelmina State Park is one of the 52 state parks administered by the State Parks Division of the Arkansas Department of Parks and Tourism. In addition to the lodge, the 460-acre park includes a campground with 41 campsites and a bathhouse; picnic areas; trails; and a seasonal miniature train and mini-golf course. Park interpretive programs highlight Rich Mountain’s fauna and unique flora. The park is on Ark. 88 (Talimena National Scenic Byway) 13 miles west of Mena. [For an alternate route from Mena or during inclement weather, go six miles north on U.S. 71, then travel nine miles west on U.S. 270, then go two miles south up Ark. 272.] ... more   less
