    Dardanelle, Arkansas

    Mount Nebo State Park Campground is a gem tucked away near Dardanelle, Arkansas. This place is a haven for those who crave a mix of adventure and tranquility. The campground is perched atop a mountain, offering breathtaking views that make the steep drive up totally worth it. Just remember to use your low gears on the way down to save your brakes!

    The campground is known for its stunning overlooks, especially from tent sites 17, 14, and 16, and cabins 11 and 14. If you're into mountain biking, you're in luck. The Monument Trail mountain biking system here is world-class, drawing enthusiasts from all over. Hiking trails are plentiful and well-maintained, with picturesque spots like the waterfall on Lizard Trail.

    While the campground has a lot to offer, it's not exactly a luxury resort. There are no electric hookups, drinking water, or showers, so come prepared. The park store is the only place to grab supplies, and it's located at the top of the mountain. If you're planning to stay, note that trailers over 20 feet won't make it up the steep, winding road.

    For those who prefer a bit more comfort, glamping and yurt accommodations are available. The park also features a swimming pool, which is a hit with families. Speaking of families, the playground and pool area are close to the campsites, making it a great spot for kids.

    Cell service is surprisingly good for a mountaintop location, so you can stay connected if needed. Just be aware that this is a dry county, so plan ahead if you want to enjoy an adult beverage by the campfire.

    In short, Mount Nebo State Park Campground offers a mix of rugged charm and natural beauty, making it a must-visit for anyone looking to escape into nature.
