Rising 1,350 feet, Mount Nebo offers spectacular views of the Arkansas River Valley. 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.
Fondest memory: The park offers 34 campsites (24 Class B; 10 Hike-in) [no dump station] and 14 fully-equipped cabins with kitchens. Fourteen miles of trails encircle Mount Nebo. Facilities include a pool, tennis courts, picnic areas, playgrounds, extra-large enclosed and standard open pavilions and a ball field. The visitor center offers exhibits, a store and bicycle rentals. Interpretive programs tell about the mountain's history and natural resources.
