In 1928, Mount Nebo State Park became the second state park established in Arkansas. The park consists of 3,000 acres on a flat-topped plateau some 1,350 feet above the Arkansas River Valley in Yell County. Among the attractions are a visitor center, camp sites, cabins, a swimming pool, hiking trails, and a spectacular view. In recent years, hang gliding has become a popular pastime on the mountain.
