Beaver Lake, Eureka Springs

4.8
#2 of 77 in Nature in Arkansas
Hike or drive through the 12 parks that surround manmade Beaver Lake. Each park offers camping facilities and commercial marinas where you can rent a boat for exploring the water. Hiking trails weave through the parks and bring visitors near the limestone bluffs that skirt the 784 km (487 mi) of shoreline. You may want to spend time fishing, particularly for smallmouth and striper bass. If you fish, aim for the "flats" area away from the main channel for the most success.

  • Really nice Lake for boating fishing is a little slow unless you know exactly where they're at and how to catch at certain time of the year. Very beautiful landscape and scenery surrounding the lake
  • Bluffs are spectacular. Fishing can be good but sporadic. Fish the thermocline for striped bass
  • We stayed in nearby Whispering Hills Cabins during the fall. We really enjoyed the peaceful serenity and beautiful views of the lake.
  • Very beautiful lake and there is fantastic striper fishing. If you are planning a fishing trip to Beaver lake call Big dog guide service he is the best!
  • Completed our open water scuba cert here. Visibility on the first dive wasnt great, but was enough to complete all required tasks. Second day we got to dive a couple submerged items in the lake. Overall, it was a great experience.
