Beaver Lake

Beaver Lake is nestled high in the Ozark Mountains of northwest Arkansas, the birthplace of the White River. With some 487 miles of natural shoreline, Beaver Lake offers the best in recreational opportunities for outdoor enthusiasts of all ages.  The 28,370-acre lake is the first of the impoundments created in Arkansas and Missouri along the lengthy White River system.
Taking advantage of the natural scenic beauty, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has constructed a variety of recreational facilities. Paved access roads wind through 12 developed parks. There are 2,008 acres of campgrounds and over 650 individual campsites. Visitors can enjoy such conveniences as electricity and fire-rings. Drinking water, showers and restrooms are nearby. Other facilities -- picnic sites, swimming beaches, hiking trails, boat launching ramps, sanitary dump stations, group picnic shelters and amphitheaters -- are also available in the parks.

Fishing Beaver Lake offers smallmouth bass fishing, largemouth bass fishing, and striper bass fishing, not to mention plentiful supplies of crappie, bream, white bass, channel and spoonbill catfish. Beaver supports healthy populations for fall striped and hybrid striped bass. November serves up fast-paced action for both of these hard-hitting sportfish. The lake offers clear-water fishing at its north end and dingy water fishing in the tributaries flowing in from the south. When quick rises in its level move muddy water northward, the lake’s midsection often produces outstanding shallow-water fishing.
