Beaver Lake

From Openwaterpedia

Beaver Lake is a man-made reservoir, completed in 1966 and nestled high in the Ozark Mountains located in northwest Arkansas, the birthplace of the White River. The 28,370-acre lake is the first of the impoundments created in Arkansas and Missouri along the lengthy White River system.

With 487 miles of shoreline highlighted by limestone bluffs, Beaver Lake offers numerous recreational opportunities. Marinas and outfitters are plentiful. Cabins, resorts and other lodging ring the lake, and campgrounds are also available in good number. Three-fourths of Beaver Lake is in Benton County, the remainder in Carroll County.
