Mt Nebo SP campgrounds is for fee camping from tent to RV. Trailers are limited to 23 ft. long because of sharp switchbacks leading up the mountain. Mount Nebo is a destination for hiking, and scenic views. One of two Arkansas parks that accommodate hang gliding. The park offers 34 campsites (24 Class B; 10 Hike-in Tent Sites) [no dump station] and 14 fully-equipped cabins with kitchens.
This is our favorite campgrounds for those living in Central Arkansas. Plenty of trails with awesome scenery for all ages and hiking levels.
Our campsite was right next to the edge of the ridge, so we were treated to an amazing view. There were trees close enough together to set up our hammocks for sleeping. The site's price was very reasonable, and the visitor center takes cards. The visitor's center also has basic supplies in case you forget matches like I did. The pool even has a shower facility which was much appreciated after a day of hiking in July.
We loved camping on the edge of the mountain with excellent views! Campsite #17 is our favorite, with 16 and 14 being wonderful as well. You just can't beat the view of the mountains, valleys, and Dardanelle Lake below. Make sure you reserve ahead for the weekend. However, it does get noisy at the pavilion next door on the weekends due to weddings and events.
A quick hike to 535ft in elevation, it's the highest point in Louisiana. Well maintained. It's worth signing in at the top, and taking the short trail that leads to a bench and a view.
The rim trail is an easy day hike with spectacular views along most of the path. If you end up directly in someone's backyard, its because the path drops down below the cliffs. Although I am partial to those cliffs as its there I got engaged <3
Great views, great hiking, great sunsets. nice campground. Primitive backpack camps also available.
