  • Went to the lake to relax and catch some fish. Saw deer on the drive to the lake. Actually saw several. Alot of other people had the same idea I'm sure they enjoyed their day on the lake. While fishing heard a Tom gobble at either a airplane on the beautiful morning. Succeeded in relaxing and catching fish. Awesome place to do both.
  • Beautiful water. There is a quiet (but rocky) beach over by Brady Mountain's lookout point. We swam there. The water is nice and clear with some friendly and curious fish that swam right up to us. It definitely worth the trip if you're looking for a good place to swim or have a cookout!
  • Our absolute favorite lake in AR! The water is beautiful, year-round. We camp on the southern or western side of the lake and ride jet skis to our own private Island for a day. If you venture around the Northern edges of the lake, you'll find small cliffs (people's backyards) that you can climb and jump about 25 feet or less. Of course, the lake is west of Hot Springs, so you can drive into town and ride go-karts, play mini-golf, etc in a family friendly city. This lake is positioned perfectly for long weekend getaways.
  • My favorite lake in arkansas, super clean lake I have always loved camping here. Good facilities and tons of water to play and fish on. Also has a geo-float trail that takes you on a tour of the lake and the geology of it. I always preferred brady mountain.
  • Love this place.
