Usually when I think of spending the night at a state park, I don't usually think that we will have a great nice new room. We were both impressed by the cleanliness and the well maintained modern room.

The lodge is beautiful!! They've recently made some beautiful changes. The lodge Buffet is great too, good food and good service. You can sit in the cozy sitting area and look out the Super large windows and see the beauty. It's an awesome place for families, a honeymoon or a beautiful picture with a beautiful background.

I REALLY wanted to love this lodge as I was hoping it would be an ideal location for next summer's family reunion which includes hotel folks, RVers, campers and long-distance hikers and the location was centrally located for most. The hotel portion of the lodge is quite nicely updated. The main reason to stay here is the view, so definitely...

Thank you for taking the time to review your enjoyable stay. We are glad you enjoyed your meals and the view. Sorry that the smoke from fireplace stopped you from enjoying our hearth room. Our staff works hard to minimize the smell, including recently having the chimney re-cleaned. Unfortunately, due to our unique location, our weather and high winds can...

Our first trip here and the view was spectacular and the hiking trails good. The lodge is new, very nice and clean. Our room was spacious, with modern decor and a very comfortable bed.

We didn't stay here, but my husband,and the rest of my family drove up the mountain and ate and explored. Gorgeous views, and this place was fanominal. I'd LOVE to stay here for a getaway.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Queen Wilhelmina State Park Lodge on 2,681-foot Rich Mountain, Arkansas’s second highest peak, reopened on July 1, 2015, following renovation. The lodge features all new windows that will be larger to frame the views from Rich Mountain of the surrounding Ouachita Mountains. Our visitors can enjoy the more wide open views from all the lodge’s public rooms, including the restaurant and all the guest rooms. The exterior of the lodge features shingles and stonework. The lodge was expanded from 25,881 square feet to 37,029 square feet to include the addition of a new hearth room with wood-burning fireplace, two additional guest rooms increasing the total to 40, and more space within all the rooms. Two guest rooms on each floor at the west end include gas fireplaces and spa tubs. Three are barrier-free to meet the needs of visitors with disabilities. They include Queen, King, King with spa tub and gas fireplace, and King Suite choices. The upstairs meeting facility increased in size and includes a balcony overlooking the south view from the mountain. Public restrooms are located nearby. An elevator was added to the lodge, as well as more stairwells. A wrap-around porch on the building’s south side will provide visitors with comfortable outdoor space. A new porch was added at the west end. And a new fire protection system covers the entire building. Other improvements include a new energy efficient heating and air-conditioning system, energy saving lighting throughout, solar hot water, and other such features. A new laundry will serve the housekeeping staff. Queen Wilhelmina State Park is one of the 52 state parks administered by the State Parks Division of the Arkansas Department of Parks and Tourism. In addition to the lodge, the 460-acre park includes a campground with 41 campsites and a bathhouse; picnic areas; trails; and a seasonal miniature train and mini-golf course. Park interpretive programs highlight Rich Mountain’s fauna and unique flora. The park is on Ark. 88 (Talimena National Scenic Byway) 13 miles west of Mena. [For an alternate route from Mena or during inclement weather, go six miles north on U.S. 71, then travel nine miles west on U.S. 270, then go two miles south up Ark. 272.] ... more   less
