Arrived a little past 5 thinking they were open until 6. They had closed at 5. Fantastic view. Love the area. The kids Loved it too. Worth the extra time getting off of the interstate.

Not a lot to "do" here, but beautiful views. Don't skip it, just be aware it will not take you long. There is a hiking trail , which we did not use.

I was driving from Fayetteville to Fort Smith and had to stop here when I saw the view. Great view of the mountains and lake far below. It must be incredible in the fall. Because it was early morning I was the only one in...More
