Mount Magazine, Arkansas

Over the weekend, we headed to Mount Magazine in Arkansas.  Mount Magazine is a state park lodge that is beautiful.  We had a great time.  The lodge is new and really impressive as far as state parks go.  It sits high on a cliff overlooking the Arkansas mountains and the view is spectacular.  I can only imagine the beauty in the fall.  I am sure the tree line is gorgeous!

Along the way to Mount Magazine, we stopped at Fort Smith and let the kids explore the grounds.  It was a horribly hot day, so we spent most of our time inside viewing the museum displays. 

When we made it to Mount Magazine, the kids were eager to explore the lodge and swim.  The lodge has a nice indoor pool and even a little baby wadding pool perfect for Anna. 

One afternoon we climbed to the highest point in Arkansas.  William really loved this part and was proud of his accomplishment.  But really, the "hike" was about 30 minutes along an uphill trail.  Not terribly grueling, but in the heat it was plenty.

I would love to return to Mount Magazine.  It is one of the best state park lodges we've had the pleasure of visiting.
