This is one of the nicest parks. RV camping with all hook ups avaliable and right on the lake with very scenic hiking. The entire park was very clean. The only con is the camping spots are very close together, but We had the whole camp ground to ourselves. Would be awesome summer hot spot
The only reason I didn't give this park 5 stars was because we didn't camp overnight here, we only did a day hike, so I can't rate the park on EVERYTHING they have to offer. However, everything we did have the chance to explore was GREAT.
From the visitor center, where everyone was very polite and eager to help to the hiking trails that were well maintained and clean. This park was beautiful. Plus, they didn't charge a day fee which was amazing since everywhere I usually visit has a fee to enter the park. That was great since we only wanted to do a short hike.
I did notice they also had a nice playground for the kids, as well as, a boat dock and pier. I definitely want to go back again sometime and actually stay a few days.
Petit Jean State Park is an excellent short weekend get away or a day trip! It offers 8 hiking trails and one biking trail. The Cedar Fall Trail is not to be missed with glorious waterfall and best visit right after a rainy day. Spring and summer is popular camping season so reserve ahead of time. If you enjoy the scenic route then it’s about an hour drive to Ouachita National Forest Park
This is definitely one of our premier parks in Arkansas, especially if you have a family and need outdoor activities. We stayed in the D loop. The spot was almost a little tight for our 32 foot camper. It was hard to level as many of the other reviews said. It is a nice little loop though with the trees and shade. In fact there are enough trees that it was very easy to hang up hammocks! There were lots of tent campers on this loop and small to medium size campers. You will probably want to drive to the trail heads for hiking. If you’ve never been to Petit Jean, there are tons of attractions!
We managed to snag a spot in loop A for a last minute trip and this place was amazing. It was our first trip to Petit Jean and it did not disappoint. We have already booked our trip back for next summer.
Our two kids, 2 & 5 years old, really liked Turtle Rock Trail and the cave we ended up visiting it both days we were there. We also drove to the overlooks and wow the views were amazing!
This seems like a perfect spot for a family! Right on the lake, lots of activities to do and trails for hiking. Dog friendly. Easy enough to access with our 30 ft RV. Very level site (loop A site 4) with full hookups. Friendly folks too! I’m giving this 4 stars because as a couple without kids we prefer to be a bit farther out in nature and more separated from our neighbors, but there was enough space and privacy at this park. I couldn’t make a day-of reservation online so I called and they said we could just show up and pick a spot (it was a Monday night). Make sure you put the visitor center in on Google maps and stop there first to check in. They’ll let you know which sites are open.
Petit Jean state park blew my mind! Had lunch at the Mather lodge with the amazing view. Due to Covid tables were space apart which entails a waiting list but wasn’t a long wait. Food was delicious after hiking. Campgrounds were super nice and clean with I believe over 100 camping spots. Gift shop was decent with plenty to choose from. Definitely returning in 2021. Bear cave and the Tortoises being my favorite on the trails.
