A very pleasant campground. If you are not a confident driver the drive up the mountain from Havana might be challenging but we are a very large rig and had no issues other than a few low hanging branches. The campground is small and has been very quiet during our stay (school is in session). A mix of RVs and tent campers. We camped in the longest site and one of two with 50 amp. The electric is not the most robust but we have had no issues and the breeze really helps keep things cool. All of the sites have some shade and many are well spaced from their neighbor. The actual site is quite large with plenty of room for camp chairs and the barbeque, plus a tent pad. The interior roads are a little narrow but we had no issue with a 38 foot fifth wheel and a semi tractor. Our site is not level and looking around that may be a frequent complaint. Another potential negative is very spotty cell phone service although the MiFi is working well. We have Verizon. We camped at Mount Magazine State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a nice small campground with spacious sites. Lots of hiking trails including the trail to the highest point in Arkansas which is right across the street from the campground. The restrooms were clean with hot showers. Great views from the lodge and they have various ranger programs on the weekends. The food at the lodge is OK, breakfast was better than dinner. There is a gas station in Cove Creek at the bottom of the mountain which has very good hamburgers, it is only about 10 minutes away. We will stay here again if in the area.

We enjoyed the park's views, backroad bicycling, birdlife, botanical richness, and breezes. Site was spacious, hookups good, although park rules were prohibiting use of onsite sewers, yet charging for sewer because we reserved a sewered site. (We had to directly contact the State of Arkansas park director in Little Rock for a refund, and the director was unaware the sewer system was not operational in the park, caused by a Barbie Doll in one of the lines.). Food at the lodge was really good. The swimming pool is off limits to campers, so a cool hose spray was the only way to cool off in the hot summer afternoons. That was disappointing. Make sure you have plenty of fuel before leaving Paris or Havana, it's a long way to walk to town. One concern was venomous snakes. We saw timber rattlesnakes, and copperheads were said to be common. We were careful on trails. Yellow jackets found every available water droplet from our AC unit, somewhat a nuisance. Overall, we thought the park was nice, but it caters to the lodge tenants, not the RVers, and that was a turn off for us. We would not return in the summer, but might consider a visit in cooler months. We camped at Mount Magazine State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Mt Magazine is a beautiful state park. The sites are spacious and shady. Campground is paved. The hiking trails are nice. We bring 4-wheelers and ride the multi use trails. We camped at Mount Magazine State Park in a Travel Trailer.

When we arrived at the park, the beautiful foliage was almost breathtaking. I chose a 50 amp site because I thought it was surely designed for a big motorhome and would be fairly level. Wrong! Our site was 70 feet long, and if we had pulled forward about 35 feet, we might have been a little more level, but we backed up to be near the connections. We had blocks under the jacks, the wheels, and our front wheels were still off the ground, which we do not like. When sites are being redone, as these have been fairly recently, how much trouble is it with a bulldozer in there to level the sites? The lodge was extremely nice with beautiful views and a good restaurant. They offered a computer room with fast wi-fi. The lodge had a beautiful indoor pool and fitness center, which only hotel guests are allowed to use, even though I offered to pay. We enjoyed our stay and the beautiful scenery. Not sure whether we'll be back or not. We camped at Mount Magazine State Park in a Motorhome.

As expected, a fantastic and relaxing stay! Sites are spacious and spaced out very well for a private atmosphere. Paved roads and sites. Temps were in the low 90's while in the valley, Paris, temps were 110*. Very enjoyable, lots of hiking and bicycling. We will return. We camped at Mount Magazine State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Very nice sites, all with full hookups. However, only two sites have 50 amp service. We had 50 amps, yet due to the cooler "mountain" temps 30 amp service would have been fine for us. The forest and hiking are absolutely incredible. Lots of birds and butterflies. Saw no bears, but park ranger said they are around yet stay away from public. We felt very safe. The mountain top views are truly amazing. We spent five nights here. A real forest / hiking treasure. We camped at Mount Magazine State Park in a Motorhome.

Beautiful clean campground. Staff are very efficient; water connection was dripping & they repaired within 30 minutes. Clean restrooms, although shower drains did not drain well, water was standing in dressing area. Would stay here again. We camped at Mount Magazine State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is our favorite park in Arkansas. Absolutely beautiful place everywhere you go. The CG is in the woods, so no views from your site. But a short walk down a trail from the CG and you are at one of the most scenic vistas on the mountain. Miles and miles of hiking trails all over this park from easy to strenuous. ATV and horse trails also available. Stunning views from all over the mountain. Awesome visitor center with friendly and knowledgeable staff. And if you're in the mood for a nice dinner the lodge in the park is exceptional. Lakes nearby also. Just love camping here. The spaces are easily leveled, and the power is steady. Black bears in the area so be smart and maybe you will be lucky to experience a sighting. We camped at Mount Magazine State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Absolutely our favorite campground. Lots of hiking trails, beautiful overlooks, places to bicycle, and best of all, very quite and peaceful at night. And another thing, it gets very dark (no street lights), you would be amazed at the stars you can see. We camped at Mount Magazine State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Beautiful scenery in park, though no mountain view at the campground itself as it is in the trees and not looking out over anything. Stayed in site 14 and it was pretty level. Nice size sites with ample privacy. Many people had satellites hooked up, though service is not available from all sites. Plan to return another time.

A nice park. The campground is well shaded. The sites are adequately far apart. Our site (#2) was not exceptionally level. The hookups were in good shape. The park employees are helpful, and friendly. The park itself is a beautiful place. Lots of hiking trails. We camped at Mount Magazine State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed here on July 4th weekend and it was very clean, very quiet, and very peaceful. Since there are only 18 camp sites, there was not a lot people. The over looks are beautiful and the temperatures were great, which is unusual for Arkansas! I would highly recommend this park for someone seeking a great camping experience, although if you want someplace to entertain small kids, this isn't it. The trails here are nice too.We camped here in a pop up. We camped at Mount Magazine State Park in a Tent Trailer.

A beautiful park to spent a couple of days. Sites are not especially long but we were able to park our truck in front of our 32' trailer and stay out of the street. This is a great summer camping spot since the temperature at the park is nearly 10 degrees cooler than the valley floor. Recreation mainly consists of hiking the area trails, but we did get to watch the hand gliders take off in the park. There were also bear sightings near the campground. The views are spectacular and overall the park was in great shape. Be sure your gas tank is full and you have all your supplies. The camp store has a very limited amount of supplies and town is about 15 miles away. We will definitely return to this park. We camped at Mount Magazine State Park in a Travel Trailer.
