At 2,753-feet, Mount Magazine is Arkansas's highest mountain, rising dramatically above the broad valleys of the Petit Jean River to the south and the Arkansas River to its north. Graced with timeless natural beauty, this plateau-a remnant of an ancient sea floor-runs east-west stretching six miles long and up to a mile across. Rugged, isolated, and rich in natural resources including rare and endangered species, Mount Magazine has long lured explorers, adventurers, scientists, and naturalists.
Settlers came to the mountain in the 1800s and farmed here. Later cabins and lodges were built atop Mount Magazine to attract and accommodate the travelers who journeyed to the mountain for recreation, relaxation, and the escape from the heat in the lowlands below that the summit's cooler temperatures afforded.
The park's 8,000-square-foot visitor center welcomes you to Mount Magazine State Park. It is the place to begin your discovery of the beauty and fascinating history of this unique mountain. The visitor center features exhibits on the geology, history, flora, and fauna of Mount Magazine, offers daily audiovisual programs, and has a large wildlife observation area overlooking a native plant garden. This is the starting place for many of the park's guided walks, special workshops and wildlife and history programs.
