We had a lovely rustic cabin with amazing views & a nice fireplace. Every evening someone would leave a bundle of wood on our porch with kindling. Not many people up here but we enjoyed the peace and quiet. We hiked almost all of the trails and had a great time. Ate several meals at the lodge. Excellent food &... More

We set up in Pavillion A the entire... More

Just left 3 days ago, and already trying to figure out when I can go back. HIGHLY recommend - there is so much to do/see. Try to stay in a cabin, but if you can't get in a cabin or the lodge, Cedar Falls Motel is right down the road.

Petit jean has always been my favorite state park in Arkansas. It's natural beauty and amazing falls makes it a must see place. Seven Hollows is my favorite trail since it covers a diverse area, rock formations, streams and forest. When you come off the trail, stop by the lodge and refuel with a burger. They are wonderful!

Be sure to visit the overlook where Petit Jean is buried. It's one of the most beautiful and has a great view of the Arkansas river.

The trails at this park are top notch. They are so well marked, and there are plenty of routes you can take to make your hike as challenging as you want it to be. Our cabin was very clean and had plenty of room. Our kids loved watching the fire in the fireplace and looking out the windows over the... More

The beauty of the views can not be described and no picture will ever do it justice. This is a place that must be experienced first hand. Brought here the first time by a friend from college it never ceases to amaze me. A perfect family destination .
