Atop Arkansas’s second highest peak, this cloud-capped hideaway reigns above the Ouachita Mountains. Located on the Talimena Scenic Drive, the park is as rich in history as in scenery. In the late 1800s, a resort hostelry named Queen Wilhelmina Inn in honor of the Queen of the Netherlands was built on Rich Mountain by the Kansas City, Pittsburg and Gulf Railroad. Two inns have replaced the original “Castle in the Sky”–the latest is this park’s focal point. The lodge offers 38 guest rooms including two Queen’s Rooms with fireplaces and two Regent’s Rooms with spa tubs. Enjoy the Queen’s Treasury gift shop. The Queen’s Restaurant serves delicious Southern cuisine daily.

Truly Spectular!

What a find, this beautiful, clean, remote lodge and campground. With a warm welcome, the genuine southern hospitality completed the great start to a wonderful stay.
The Ouichita Recreation Trail is steps from the lodge, providing opportunities for hiking the mountain.
Highly, highly recommend this national treasure.
