There’s No Prettier Place Than Stout’s Point On Arkansas’ Petit Jean Mountain

Petit Jean Mountain has inspired visitors for well over 10,000 years. Not only was it a gathering place for Native Americans, the area also inspired the creation of Arkansas’ first state park in the 1920s. Petit Jean State Park captures so many facets of Arkansas nature between its waterfalls, caves, unique rock formations, and overlooks. Every acre of the park needs to be explored but for today let’s just drink in the views from Stout’s Point, the most famed overlook on the mountain.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

Have you traversed to Stout’s Point yet? We would love to see your mountaintop photos in our Facebook group, Arkansas Nature Lovers. You should join for your chance to be featured (like Brennen Duffield today) and to discover why there’s nothing better than Arkansas’ stunning nature.
