Mount Magazine State Park

Today we took a road trip to Mount Magazine State Park. Mount Magazine is the highest point in Arkansas at 2,753 feet. The drive took about an hour but it didn’t seem that long with the beautiful scenery to look at. We stopped at the visitor center for information on the park and then proceeded on to the lodge and restaurant to have lunch.

016 The tree in the middle of this picture is the famous lodge cedar tree because of its odd shape and that is grows from between a rock. It is the image that appears on the lodge employees’ shirts.

After having a great lunch and enjoying the scenery all around the lodge we left to explore the rest of the park.

It was late afternoon by the time we left the park. There is a nice but small campground in the park. We drove through it and will probably stay here in the future.

When we made it back to Bill and Tambra’s I remembered that I had not posted any pictures of their cows so I followed Bill out back to get a few.






We will be leaving tomorrow for Ashdown, Arkansas as we make our way back to Mississippi. We have enjoyed our visit with Bill and Tambra very much and look forward to visiting with them again real soon.

Laugh everyday. Happy trails. Stay Safe.


  1. Gotta write that park down as one to see...What fabulous views from the top!!!

  2. Gotta love those Ozarks! We visited Mt. Magazine recently and loved it! Breathtaking views! K

  3. My DW and I visited Mt. Magazine last year and loved it. We also loved Devil's Den, the Buffalo National River, Pettit Jean, Crater of Diamonds, Queen Wilhelminia, Bull Shoals, The Ozark Folk Center - heck, we liked almost all of Arkansas.
