“The best little hamfest west of the Mississippi”

Sept. 11th & 12th 2020 Friday and Saturday


Come enjoy the beauty of Rich Mountain with family and friends. Fifty one years ago a number of guys on 75 meters decided to come to this place to do just that.  Y’all come enjoy the mountain,  fellowship, and let’s get acquainted.  Just 13 miles west of Mena, Arkansas, on Hwy 88, Queen Wilhelmina State Park sits at an elevation of 2500 ft on Rich Mt.

Plenty of flea market area provided inside or outside the two tents. Bring your own tables, chairs, and electricity. All spaces under the tents and outside the tents are a $10.00 donation.  Flea market spaces are first come first serve! Limit one vehicle per tent or flea market space.
For tent and reservations please e-mail James at n5ad@att.net or call 1-479-243-4921.

Checkout Friday’s Cookout Menu here, and Saturday’s Banquet menu here. Also, this year tickets for the Cookout and the Banquet will be sold at the hospitality tent and NOT at the lodge as in years past.

Checkout the State Parks Website and make your Lodge, RV, or Camping reservations here.
Lodge and RV spots fill up fast! There are 40 rooms in the Lodge, 35 RV spots,
and 6 tent only spaces with plenty of overflow camping allowable. Overflow camping is
in an open field and does not include water, electrical hookup.
For those of you who will spend the night in your vehicle, the park will charge you for overflow camping.
* – All people staying over night in the park must register at the lodge.
* – A tent space or flea market space does not include a free night in the park.
For other accommodations nearby check Travelocity or Trivago.
