This place nestled back off the road and on the lake offers great plate lunches. They serve some of the best homemade onion rings ( Thin cut, lightly battered, and crispy.) For dessert, some of the best pies on the lake. Worth the drive off the highway. Enjoy!!!

Every summer for as long as I can remember, I've spent time at Shangri La. The rooms are reasonable and clean and the restaurant has good food at good prices and excellent pie! The swimming pool is spotless and everyone will go out their way to make your stay positive. Lake Ouachita is a jewel. It is super clean and... More

We stayed in the cottages. Nothing fancy but location is great. The floors hadn't been cleaned and we were sweeping right after we got there. Great playground walking distance from the resort. Beds are older, kitchens not the best & equipped but adequate and perfect for large families staying together. Lake Ouachita is the most beautiful of lakes in Arkansas... More

I HAVE LOVED IT FOREVER!! Great family memories with friends and the Carr family😊. This 1950s lake motel is a wonderful vacation spot. The resort is The Best and Lake Ouachita is one of the cleanest lakes in the US. Our family loves water sports, but friends have enjoyed the fishing here, too. The campgrounds are well kept with bathrooms... More

My sister and I just returned from this great place. It is the perfect place for a getaway and fishing at economical prices, which is good for senior people who are on a fixed income. The food was great but the homemade pie was the best and sells out, so be sure to make your selection before you order your... More

We looked for a place to stay for a few nights in Mt Ida and decided on Shangri-La after reading it's reviews and those of a few of it's competitors in town. We were very happy with our choice! It's located literally right on the shore of Lake Ouachita - very scenic setting! There are several cabins, a court style... More
