Located atop Rich Mountain, Arkansas’s second highest peak, Queen Wilhelmina offers some of the most breathtaking views in the state from this fully renovated lodge. Travel the Talimena National Scenic Byway to this park and its lofty setting. This site is as rich in history as it is in scenery. The original lodge was built in the late 1800s as a Victorian resort named Wilhelmina Inn to honor the young Queen of the Netherlands. Two inns followed the original “Castle in the Sky.” The latest inn is today’s park lodge, the crowning attraction at Queen Wilhelmina State Park. The 40-room lodge features a new look and many modern updates. Enjoy Southern cuisine and first-class hospitality in the Queen’s Restaurant and keep a watch out for the wildlife. 

We will meet at Buc-ee’s in Melissa, TX, drive to Talihina, OK for lunch at Outlaw BBQ. We will then drive to the Talimena National Scenic Byway one of the most scenic and fun to drive roads in America.  The Queen Wilhelmina Lodge is on the Byway where we will have dinner and spend the night. The atmosphere at the Lodge will be perfect for relaxing, visiting with friends an if you would like dominoes or cards could be played and enjoyed.

After breakfast, the next morning we will get back on the Byway and take it to the end at Mena. Lots of scenic views and pull outs present great opportunities to stop to explore and take pictures, a group picture with our banner is a must. 

We will return home through Idabel, Paris, Honey Grove and Bonham, TX, with stopping for lunch at Shumardii's Steak House American Restaurant

226 S State Highway 121, Bonham, TX 75418.
