I was looking for a place to do some hiking that wouldn't be too strenuous in the Eureka Springs area. This place was perfect! The trails are clearly marked, and the map (available at the bait shop or at the tourist information downtown) has very...More

Hiked the Beacham Trail from the recreation area to the dam and then back. The trail wraps around the whole lake, but the part on the other side of the dam didn't seem as open as the first half. If we'd had better walking shoes...More

We spent an entire day hiking the many miles of frees trails. It's a great spot for those who enjoy the outdoors. We will definitely go back with kayaks & poles and enjoy the lake next time.

We had a great day at the lake even though it rained on us twice while we were there. The staff was super friendly and helpful. My husband and older son fished while I hiked around the lake with our younger son. Perfect family outing.

Lots of options for hiking. Beautiful setting for outdoor adventures. We went to see birds and we're rewarded with birds and wild hogs! The dam is worth the walk and there are so many beautiful views along the way.

Rain kept us from exploring this area during our short trip but looked promising for some short hikes in the future if we return to area.

We hiked all the way around the lake and it was beautiful. The dam was in disrepair, but I believe that will be repaired soon. I would like to return and enjoy camping as well. The trail maps are accurate and informative.

We stopped to hike. The trails were quite rough and rutted up. Recent rain also made the area quite wet. It was 70 degrees when we hiked, I wouldn't want it to be any hotter as there wasn't much airflow until we got to the...More

I agree with the other answer too. The lake is really beautiful but no shore line for much of anything. Not the right place to have a wedding at
