Southern Living Magazine Names Petit Jean State Park as Best State Park in Arkansas

Southern Living Magazine names Morrilton's Petit Jean State Park the "Best State Park in Arkansas" - and we couldn't agree more!

"Petit Jean Mountain rises over the Arkansas River valley in the first state park established in Arkansas, offering dramatic overlook views of sweeping vistas. The most famous is Petit Jean’s Gravesite at Stout’s Point, telling the legend of Petit Jean and her ill-fated journey to America. Geological features abound in the park, including an ancient bluff shelter with pictographs and rock art on the short Rock Cave House trail. Petit Jean State Park is also part of the Trail of Tears National Historic

Trail, marking the forced migration of five Southeastern Indigenous tribes westward from their lands to Oklahoma."
