The Petit Jean State Park’s 13th annual Mountain Rendezvous will begin at 10 a.m. Nov. 26 and allow visitors to take a step back in time and see how people dressed and lived when much of Arkansas was a wild and unsettled wilderness, a place of French exploration and fur trade. 

The camp will be open to the public from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Saturday, Nov. 27, and from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 28.

During the rendezvous, attendees can get a look at life during the 1830s and get a chance to visit with re-enactors portraying that time period. 

This event is co-hosted by the Early Arkansaw Reenactors Association (EARA).

This event is free and open to the public. For more information, contact the park at or by phone at 501-727-5441.
