Since the latest review is over one year old I will update by saying that the previous reviews are still accurate. The choice of sites is critical because many of the sites would not accomodate a rig beyond 35 feet long. The site we selected was # 24, one of the longest and one of the few that would allow us to park our tow vehicle within the space. We were able to get OTA television but the signal would sometimes fade from certain channels. The water supply had been disconnected for the season and we were not really prepared for that. In fact, we ran out of onboard fresh water. The proximity of the lodge with excellent dining is certainly a plus. We have stayed here frequently in the campground, but we have learned to reserve one of the longer sites. We camped at Queen Wilhelmina State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice State Park on second highest peak in Arkansas. All campsites are arranged on either side of one straight road. We stayed in #1. It was level with good ATT cell and OTA channels. Dish would not work due to trees. There was good Wi-Fi available at the Lodge, which was an easy walk from the Campsite. There is also a buffet restaurant at the Lodge - but they also have a desert only option!! The views of Fall Colors was nice from the lodge and there were some nice 1-2 mile hiking trails with nice views. While #1 was a nice site, I think the ones farther down the road had more privacy. We camped at Queen Wilhelmina State Park in a Motorhome.

Located approximately 10 miles outside of Mena on Rich Mountain. Road is a bit winding but fine. Register at the lodge before moving into a site. All sites are back-in, many are not big rig friendly as the sites are angled funny and the dead-end road is a tight space to turn around. I would suggest scouting out the campsites first. The sites themselves are fairly level, paved with nice picnic table, grill and fire ring. The electric post and water hookups are oddly located behind the site; we used every inch of our cord. There is no sewer but the dump station is spacious and clean. No amenities like WiFi, cable, pool, but we did see mini golf and a train ride that were not open the day we were there. We found the campground to be quiet. The lodge and beautiful views are within walking distance. A gift store and restaurant is available as well as some interesting programs. Nice place to stay. We camped at Queen Wilhelmina State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice park. Very scenic. Some great views ftom the lodge or if drive around. The spaces are paved and not close togeter but somewhat tight. Each has a nice picnic table and grill, usually terraced below the rv parking grade. Some sites are larger than others, so be sure and describe your rig when making reservations. The lodge has a good restaurant. We camped at Queen Wilhelmina State Park in a Truck Camper.

The RV park is good--clean, level sites, easy access. There is no wifi or sewer. I downgrade it because of the noise. The Talimena Drive seems to Harley heaven and the noise is deafening. The road is about 100 yds away and the noise rarely stops, except at night. Also, there were lots of RV people with Harleys, so they were driving up and down the campground road. If you don't mind Harley noise, this place is ok. If you want a little tranquility, stay away. We won't stay here again. We camped at Queen Wilhelmina State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Lodge is now complete and very well done. We found the camp ground to be very good. Sites were level, shaded but a little difficult to back in for some especially at night. Number of 50 amp sites have increased. No wifi & no service with AT&T. Restaurant at lodge was fair but on par with other state run facilities. We will gladly return. We camped at Queen Wilhelmina State Park in a Motorhome.

Nice park with hiking trails. Spectacular views from the Lodge. Entrance to park camping a bit unclear (we drove by 1st time). Registration is at the lodge - not much parking for your RV at Lodge. Campsites are paved some leveling required if you want perfect. Exit from camping was a "snug" turn-around for our truck and 24 ft trailer. EZ access dump station. Lodge has food service breakfast/lunch & dinner. We enjoyed our stay & would like to return in the fall. We camped at Queen Wilhelmina State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Just returned from a 3 day trip to Queen Wilhelmina, they have just added 50 amp service to most sites and will be opening the Lodge very soon. Although it rained the whole time it's a great campground with no wi-fi. We camped at Queen Wilhelmina State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Great campground on top of Rich Mountain. Very clean and quiet. The staff are very friendly plus the Camp Hosts are the greatest. I would rate higher if they had Wi-Fi and sewer. Will be staying there again. We camped at Queen Wilhelmina State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We just experienced the best and worst of Arkansas state parks. And Queen Wilhelmina has to be the worst. We were assigned a site that was barely long enough for our 32' 5th wheel and truck. But it was probably one of only 3-4 that would have worked for us. Most would have been impossible to back our 5th wheel into. The site next door had a fire pit only 5-6 feet from our bedroom slide. And of course, our neighbors kept a fire going their entire stay. No real turn around - either at the office or in the campground. We were able to back into the double site across from the food wagon - otherwise we might still be there. And there's the constant roar of Harleys on the nearby parkway. Can't say that there's a lot to do at the park - other than the parkway. The lodge is supposed to be undergoing renovations, but it looked abandoned to us. No Wi-Fi - even at the office. On a positive note, the bathrooms were clean and the ladies at the food wagon were extremely nice. We camped at Queen Wilhelmina State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Beautiful area, situated on top of a ridge along the Talimena Scenic Byway. They didn't mention when we made our reservation that the Lodge was closed for remodeling. That meant no restaurant and no wi-fi. Not a big deal for us, but check before you go if you're planning on using any Lodge services. Still a great place. We camped at Queen Wilhelmina State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a beautiful state park. Be prepared for about a 14 mile drive up the mountain, but with awesome scenic views along the way. The road to the park is very good, as are the roads in the park. The only negative for this park is that many of the sites are very close together, and all are back-ins. We would stay here again. We camped at Queen Wilhelmina State Park in a Motorhome.

Beautiful and cost friendly place at the top of a hill that seems really undiscovered. The bath/shower facilities were clean and spacious. The scenery was amazing. The only thing missing was Internet access. None until you get into the town of Mena. We had a great couple of days here and would go back if we are ever in the area. We camped at Queen Wilhelmina State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Nice park, easy access from highway. Plenty of activities including a miniature train ride, putt-putt golf and the lots of scenic rides along the mountain ridge. Some sites were more suitable for big RV's than others, however the registration clerks were not particularly aware of this. Site 7 was large enough to hold a 40' RV without a problem, and two or three other sites might be able to handle a big RV as well. The restaurant at the Queen Wilhelmena had great food. We would camp there again. We camped at Queen Wilhelmina State Park in a Motorhome.
