Staying at Lutheran Camp on Petit Jean gives you a chance to escape reality for a while and live on top of the scenic and tranquil Petit Jean Mountain, right at the foothills of the Ozarks. Petit Jean State Park, just northwest of Little Rock and close to the Arkansas River, is an iconic Arkansas destition. It offers over 3,400 acres of forest, waterfalls, caves, canyons, mountains, and fasciting geology. This was the very first state park in Arkansas.
If you’re looking for a unique experience or the chance to explore a different way of life, this is the place for you. It’s a great place to host or attend a retreat or event, but it’s also just a great jumping off point to explore one of the best tural hidden gems in Arkansas: Jean Petit State Park. You’ll find a 100-acre lake that offers fishing and boating in the summer and a number of hiking trails, including the picturesque Cedar Falls Trail which leads to a 90-foot waterfall.
