Heaven's Gate RV Park and Resort
58076 Billy Creek Rd., Muse , Oklahoma
Admin: Misty Kennedy
Located at the foot of the Ouachita mountains in eastern Oklahoma, 20 miles east of Talihina, OK and 40 miles west of Mena AR. Heaven's Gate is a privately owned campground, and it is dog friendly. Multiple equestrian trails, hiking, and atv trails. ATV and equestrian trails are, by and large, separate from one another, though there is some overlap in a few places. Property is bordered by Billy Creek, and it's a great place to cool off during the heat of the day. Owner of the campground offers very well done trail maps with her welcome documents.
A short walk up/along side a county/gravel road to multiple trail heads.
