Mount Nebo State Park
River Valley Region
Rising 1,350 feet above the Arkansas River Valley, Mount Nebo offers
spectacular views. The mountain has been attracting travelers and
settlers for over 100 years when a resort hostelry was operated on the
mountain top for steam boat travelers. In 1933, a portion of the
mountain was chosen as a park site. Logs and stones from Mount Nebo
were used by the Civilian Conservation Corps to construct many of the
park's bridges, trails, rustic-style cabins and pavilions.
The park offers 35 campsites (24 Class B; 10 Hike-in Tent sites) [no dump station] and 14 fully-equipped cabins with kitchens.
Fourteen miles of trails encircle Mount Nebo. For mountain biking enthusiasts, the 4 1/2-mile Bench Trail is a fairly level route encircling the side of 1,850-foot Mount Nebo. As you ride through the mixed hardwood and pine forest, you'll pass historic springs and Fern Lake, and see rock work done by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the early 1930s. This is an excellent ride for your family's first mountain biking adventure. You can choose from primitive campsites located at intervals along the Bench Trail, or stay in the park campground.
The visitor center offers exhibits, a store and bicycle rentals. Interpretive programs tell about the mountain's history and natural resources. (Please note that many private homes are also situated atop the mountain.)
