We just stopped here for a short visit on a quick barbecue for lunch. It was a rather windy day, but other than the wind everything was terrific the views were outstanding. There are several romantic spots to visit as well as family spots in general. Anytime I'm down in this direction I try to stop by it's another one of my favorite little places that are just too big to properly review. If you haven't visited Mount Magazine it is definitely worth the stops you will make while on the mount.

Always an amazing quality visit. Cabins are 12 years old, but immaculately maintained. We stated in lodge on too floor corner room. The Vista is breathtaking as was the fresh mountain air.

Nice park with a few good trails for hiking. A nice visitors center and lodge. When I visited I hiked the North Rim, Signal Hill, and Moss back trails. If you are not into hiking they have a few overlooks you can visit with your car.

Amazing place with amazing views and food! The steak is absolutely perfect every time, a little longer on the wait times but it is definitely worth it! Plus while you wait the view from the windows at the restaurant are gorgeous!
