I bring my kayak and paddle the lake for peace and quiet, and great place to hike trails, feed the geese or have a picnic. Super friendly staff also rents boats. Beautiful.

We loved hiking around Lake Leatherwood. It is a great hike with lots of views of the lake. We also enjoyed the Miner's Rock Trail. The park itself has a brand new playground for the kiddos. Other parts are dated, but with the new playground, I suspect they will make additional updates. If you enjoy hiking, this area is a... More

Went to the park to check out the dam which is a pretty walk through the woods. There are many walking trails to choose from. We were there near the end of the day and started walking the Fishermans trail towards the dam. We were told it was about a mile walk. More like 2 miles. Because of the time... More

A very serene tranquil lake. Great place to take the family. Trail is great, swimming area etc. Watch out for goose poop. Boat rental just like a mountain lake.

This is a nice lake with pretty but not spectacular scenery immediately west of Eureka Springs downtown. Located at end of Leatherwood Road about two miles off Highway 62. Worth an hour or two if visiting Eureka Springs.

We came here to ride our bikes but it was a very HOT day :) in October and I had a major headache already. Hubby did ride a short distance but the trails are definitely narrow and more for mt. biking! Lovely lake and it appeared that the campers were very happy to be here.

We don't like to camp anywhere else. Friendly staff, quiet, clean, has water, electric and sewer set up for our camper. Close to public bathrooms and hot showers, love hearing the geese in the morning. Walking trails are nice. We haven't rented anything yet but they have a little marina where you can rent canoes, paddle boats and kayaks. Maybe... More

Very nice people, secluded campground. Only problem- there is no entry gate or any way of keeping people from driving in during the early morning hours and driving around the campground. This woke us up almost every morning at 5 am. Loud vehicles or quiet vehicles playing loud music at 5 am. :( We don't sleep very late, but were... More
