Queen Wilhelmina State Park


A spectacular mountaintop setting. Breathtaking panoramic scenery. Royal hospitality. Queen Wilhelmina State Park is this, and more. The park's crowning attraction is its renowned hostelry, a historic lodging tradition born in 1898 with the original "Castle in the Sky" that graced this same lofty locale high above the Ouachita Mountains over 100 years ago.

Today's Queen Wilhelmina Lodge offers 40 guest rooms, including Queen, King, King with spa tub and gas fireplace, and King Suite choices. Barrier-free rooms meet the needs of visitors with disabilities. Enjoy fine Southern fare in the Queen's Restaurant, and a treasure-filled gift shop.

Park campsites, hiking trails and overlooks are just a short walk from the lodge. Come experience this Arkansas state park and its mountain inn gracing 2,681-foot Rich Mountain, Arkansas's second highest peak. Of the 52 Arkansas state parks, Queen Wilhelmina is one of the state park system's eight mountain state parks.
