Water, Water Everywhere

Hit the water and enjoy the recreational activities offered by the many lakes, rivers and streams in Northwest Arkansas. Enjoy boating, fishing, swimming, camping, canoeing and so much more, surrounded by the natural beauty of the Ozarks.

Beaver Lake
Beaver Lake covers nearly 70 miles with 449 miles of shoreline, offering skiing, fishing, swimming, scuba diving, camping, marinas, excursions and guided fishing trips.

Beaver Lake Tailwaters
479-253-6154 - Beaver Dam Store
These eight-mile-long tailwaters are heavily stocked with rainbow and brown trout. Like many other Arkansas tailwaters, cutthroats and brookies will take an occasional fly.

Kings River
This stream twists its way 90 miles northward and empties into the White River, ending in southern Missouri’s Table Rock Lake. On the upper end, it cuts a narrow gap through sandstone, shale and limestone. Heading downstream, the surrounding countryside softens up a bit.

Lake Fayetteville
The nearest escape to hike, fish, watch birds, study nature or to just get away from it all. Includes a boat dock and ramp, bait and tackle shop, pavilion, softball facilities, restrooms and playground. A 5.5-mile soft trail circles the lake.

Lake Sequoyah
Here, you’ll find 1,779 acres of natural terrain, a boat ramp and a bait and tackle shop. Several primitive routes lead to the lake for fishing.

Lake Wedington 
An excellent spot for a natural weekend getaway. Boat ramp, seven-mile hiking trail, a shorter Lake Shore Trail, fishing, fishing pier, mountain bike trails, camping, group camp site, pavilion, swimming, cabin rental and lodge rentals are available.  
Lake Wilson 
A 270-acre natural Ozark environment, this woodlands setting offers fishing, a picnic pavilion and a 2.6-mile primitive trail named Joe Clark Trail.  
Mulberry River
According to whitewater enthusiasts, it provides one of the state’s wildest rides during spring, pouring over ledges, shooting through willow thickets and offering Class II/III-rated adventure.  
White River 
The White River has long been regarded as a first-class float stream among anglers of rainbow, German brown, cutthroat and brook trout. Several resorts, marinas and docks along the river offer guides, lodging, tackle, bait and boat rentals to help ensure a perfect day on the river.
