Petit Jean Park Airport, Morrilton, AR

An airport in an Arkansas state park on top of Petit Jean Mountian. Great camping at the airport between the south end of 5000' runway and lake. Plenty of parking. Lots to see and do in the state park. Contact Morrilton Aviation for more info.

12/15/2004 - Great place for an afternoon trip. From the airport we biked to one of several hiking trails in the area, hiked a few miles, then reversed the process and flew home. Saw another pilot unloading his bike, too.
11/22/2009 - Great place to fly in and camp. Call ahead to make a reservation and make sure someone can ferry you from the airport to the Mathers Lodge for the hikes and restaurant. It's too far to walk. - Submitted by Howard Benz
5/28/2012 - Very fun, scenic place to fly for day/weekend trip. Airport FBO is small but accommodating, open until 5:00pm and owned by a pilot and his family. Self serve gas, but was out of order the day we went. Lake Bailey and camp sites are located at the end of the runway. For 10.00 each way FBO will drive you to the main lodge/main camping area. Main lodge is very large and has a modern rustic feel, with a restaurant overlooking sweeping views on site. There are also picnic tables, and grass area's to sit and eat lunch if you bring your own like we did. Scenic hiking trails are located steps from the lodge. We hiked the Cedar Falls trail with our dogs and the lagoon and waterfalls were worth the difficult hike. There are many others trails that are not quite as difficult for those who want to enjoy the scenery at a slow pace. Trails/park are dog friendly, though lodge and cabins do not allow dogs. - Submitted by Ashleigh
5/19/2014 - Wow, wow, wow! This park is beautiful and the 95 ft. waterfall was icing on the cake. We landed on Friday afternoon and contacted Mather Lodge, where we had reservations, and a member of their staff was at the airport in about 15 minutes to pick us up. The lodge is comfortable and the staff was professional and friendly. My husband and I hiked for a few hours on Friday, hiked 6 hours on Saturday, and flew home to Texas on Sunday. We will be back! :) Tips: Bring tie-downs. If staying at the lodge, request top floor as we could here the elephants upstairs above us pacing back and forth. : ) - Submitted by Tammy
