What to know

Located atop Rich Mountain, Arkansas’s second highest peak, Queen Wilhelmina offers some of the most breathtaking views in the state from the fully renovated lodge. Travel the Talimena National Scenic Byway to this park and its lofty setting. This site is as rich in history as it is in scenery. The original lodge was built in the late 1800s as a Victorian resort named Wilhelmina Inn to honor the young Queen of the Netherlands. Two inns followed the original “Castle in the Sky.” The latest inn is today’s park lodge, the crowning attraction at Queen Wilhelmina State Park. The 40-room lodge features a new look and many modern updates. Enjoy Southern cuisine and first-class hospitality in the Queen’s Restaurant. A conference room with private balcony accommodates up to 75.

The park includes 41 campsites (eight Class A, 27 Class B, five tent sites with water, and one hike-in tent site), picnic areas, and trails. Interpretive programs highlight Rich Mountain’s fauna and unique flora and connect you to the fascinating history of the three inns that have graced this mountaintop site.
