On the road to or from Eureka Springs you'll need a place to stop and get a breath of fresh air and stretch your legs. Lake Leathewood is the on-the-way place to do just that. I enjoyed a morning lakeside contemplation as the sun climbed...More

Visited in late July. Unfortunately it rained most of the time we were here, however we did manage to rent a few kayaks and get on the water. Surprisingly, the water was exceptionally warm though we fought the current the entire way to the dam....More

We went hiking on the fishermans trail. It was a good trail to hike with first time hikers. The lake is mossy but nice

Take the three mile hike around the lake! It's wonderful! Crystal clear water to fish in: you can fish your way around the lake. Well maintained trails. Cabins for rent. Showers in the rest rooms. Great place; can't wait to go back!

The small cabins, closer to the lake had AC. Our kids swim on the lake close to the shore
