Wintertime at Mt. Nebo
Description - 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 mountaintop for steamboat travelers. In 1933, a portion of the mountain was chosen as a park site, and logs and stones from Mount Nebo were used by the Civilian Conservation Corps to construct many of the park's bridges, trails, charming Rustic-style cabins and pavilions.

Attractions - The park offers 35 campsites and 15 fully equipped cabins with kitchens. Fourteen miles of trails encircle Mount Nebo. A pool, tennis courts, picnic areas, playgrounds, extra large enclosed and standard open pavilions, and a ball field are available. The visitor center houses exhibits, bicycle rentals and a store.

Recreation - Mt. Nebo State Park offers plenty of outdoor activities. Visitors will enjoy camping, picnicking, hiking, biking, swimming, and playing tennis.
