Mather Lodge

One of Arkansas's historic treasures, Mather Lodge at Petit Jean State Park reopened on May 8, 2012, following a beautiful renovation. The renovation replaced this Arkansas lodge's 1960s-era dining room with a more rustic-style design, expanded the kitchen, added a 50-person room for meetings and small banquets, relocated the guest registration desk, enhanced the 24 guest rooms, and constructed a new lodge swimming pool. Public restrooms were added underneath the pool due to its proximity to Cedar Falls Trail, one of the park's most popular hiking trails. Wi-Fi Internet access is available throughout the lodge, including the guest rooms. The renovation did not affect any of this beautiful lodge's original Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) and Works Progress Administration work from the 1930s. The renovated portion now mirrors the Adirondack-style park architecture of the 1930s portions of this mountain lodge, the only CCC lodge built in an Arkansas state park.

Near this beautiful lodge are 33 of the park's cabins. Some are 1930s CCC/Rustic-style, and others are modern duplex designs. Choices include one-bedroom, three-bedroom, and studio cabins. The cabins are fully-equipped, and 21 include kitchens. Most of the cabins are spaced along the bluff of Cedar Creek Canyon.

A short drive away along Ark. 154 is another park cabin for rent.
