We're Open Year-Round
Mount Magazine State Park is Arkansas’s highest point at 2,753 feet. Stay in our hotel-like lodge, a cabin with an outdoor hot tub perfect for relaxing and stargazing or camp out under the stars. From its setting on the mountain’s south bluff, the lodge offers breathtaking views of the Petit Jean River Valley and Blue Mountain Lake in the distance.
Dig for finders keepers diamonds
One of the only places in the world where the public can search for real diamonds in their original volcanic source, Crater of Diamonds is a one-of-a-kind adventure that brings people from all over the world to Murfreesboro, Arkansas. Visitors to the park search a 37-acre plowed field, the eroded surface of a volcanic crater, for variety of rocks, minerals, and gemstones – and any rock or mineral you find is yours to keep!
Village Creek State Park is the perfect camping destination. It encompasses nearly 7,000 acres of beautiful forested hills and clear streams to create an environment found nowhere else in Arkansas. There are 33 miles of multi-use trails, campgrounds with bathhouses, and includes an equestrian campground with stable facilities (BYOH), two lakes, a day-use area with pavilions and picnic sites. Interpretive programs are available year-round. You can walk on a segment of the Trail of Tears as part of the trails.
