Special Notice The Hearth Room in The Lodge at Mount Magazine will be closed to the public beginning the ending week of December 2015. This great room near the lobby will remain closed temporarily until April 2016. This closure is necessary for the public’s safety while repairs are made to the bay of windows along three sides of this room framing the view of the Petit Jean River Valley. A temporary wall will block-off access to this room during the construction activity. Depending upon the progress during construction, a portion of The Skycrest Restaurant will also undergo repairs and remain open (tentatively scheduled towards the first week of January 2016). The south view scenic windows will be enclosed temporarily and obstructed for viewing during this time until approximately early April 2016. Please note that there are other public areas at the lodge and within the Skycrest Restaurant which will offer views of the Valley. All other areas of the lodge will remain open. For updated details, please contact the lodge at: 877-665-6343.

Mount Magazine State Park is on the state's tallest mountain, the 2,753-foot Mount Magazine. Sweeping vistas of broad river valleys, deep canyons, and distant mountains welcome outdoor enthusiasts to Arkansas's highest point.

The park is a place to enjoy sightseeing, exploring the mountain and nature study. It's also a destination for outdoor sports and extreme adventure enthusiasts that offers rock climbing, rappelling, hand gliding, mountain biking, horseback riding, backpacking and ATV adventure. An ATV guide service is available.

Mount Magazine is the state park system's most dramatic location for technical rock climbing. The park also offers overlooks, hiking trails, a picnic area with restrooms, pavilion, and visitor center with an interactive exhibit gallery and gift shop. Park interpreters lead a variety of programs that highlight the mountain's natural diversity and unique species.
