Perhaps not exactly a secret, but located well outside the city. Great for hiking, swimming, fishing, grilling even boating. It's a really big city park that's open to all. Highly recommended to get away from crowds.

Highway 187 makes a loop off Highway 62 and passes by east end of Beaver Lake and crosses the Beaver Lake dam. This is a nice one to two hour drive and is probably the best scenery in the immediate Eureka Springs area. The shoreline of Beaver Lake is beautiful scenery and the area is very restful and quiet.

Didn't play in the lake much as we weren't prepared but there are lots of places to access the water. The Dam is just an amazing piece of construction too. Lots of nice trails and some are very challenging and steep.

We stayed there for a couple of days. Great view of Beaver Lake. The accommodations were nice and clean. Water pressure in the shower was very low. It is a drive back to Eureka Springs, so make sure to bring your groceries. Very quiet and serene.

Drove around to the Belle of the Ozarks boat ride, went on tour, they were very informative and had great stories about the lake and and how it was built, drove back around and had lunch at the Angler's Inn, very good

Beaver Lake is more of a fishing lake, good also for sightseeing, especially in the fall. We stayed in a cabin with a deck overlooking the lake and a full size private Jacuzzi that you will never get at a lodge or motel. We also had a kitchen, etc. and spent less than $200 per night. We rented a pontoon... More

My family and I went to the overlook at the dam to see the lake and take pictures. It is so pretty there. You will not be disappointed to take this drive.
