    Mena, Arkansas

    Queen Wilhelmina State Park Campground, near Mena, AR, is a solid spot for those looking to enjoy the great outdoors with some added comforts. This place is open year-round and offers a mix of tent, RV, and glamping accommodations. The campground is perched high on a mountain, providing some killer views, especially at sunset.

    The lodge here is a big hit, boasting fantastic food and friendly staff. It's also got a restaurant, mini golf, and a mini train—though those are seasonal attractions. The bathhouse is clean and warm, which is a blessing when it's cold outside.

    For those who like to hike, there are several trails with great views, though some can get a bit overgrown once you venture into the national forest. The Lover’s Leap trail is a popular one, offering a moderate hike with a rewarding lookout.

    The campsites themselves are a bit quirky. Some folks have noted that the layout can be odd, with amenities like picnic tables and fire pits placed in unconventional spots. But hey, it’s all part of the adventure, right? Just be prepared for sites that are pretty close together.

    Pets are welcome, but keep an eye out for ticks. And while there’s no sewer hookup, there are sanitary dump stations available. If you’re into stargazing, the night sky here is incredible.

    Overall, Queen Wilhelmina State Park Campground is a great place to kick back, enjoy some beautiful scenery, and maybe even make a few new friends around the campfire.

    Wilburton, Oklahoma

    Situated in the hills and forests of southeast Oklahoma’s San Bois Mountains, Robbers Cave State Park has a history almost as exciting as the scenery and activities it offers. The park earned notoriety in the early part of the 20th century as a hideout for outlaws including Jesse James and Belle Starr. While the park recognizes this fame, today the park’s draw is as a family-friendly destination offering luxurious Robbers Cave cabins and campsites.

    Campers can stay at 22 modern RV sites with full hookups, 67 sites with water and electric hookups, and 86 primitive camping along secluded trails. For those looking for a more cozy stay, the 26 Robbers Cave cabins offer stunning park views, as well as a full kitchen, a fireplace, television and a full bathroom (these make for a reliable stay at the park depending on the weather in Wilburton, OK).

    Once you’ve settled into your stay, you’ll find countless activities in the park, enough to make you come back to do it all. There’s miles of hiking, biking and equestrian trails, swimming, fishing and paddling at the park’s three reservoirs and numerous creeks, rock climbing/rappelling, and guided tours through the historic sites that once hid outlaws from law enforcement.
