This was a lovey lake, great fishing, and lovely people all around. Beautiful scenery and although the lake looked refreshing, it was too cool of a day for a swim.

We hiked to the dam and back. It was beautiful and fun. Highly recommended. The Dam in amazing and has a stunning view. I didn't have any complaints.

The Lake is clear but unfortunately it had a lot of trash along the shoreline. It was very deserted. There was 1 fishing boat and 1 family on the dock. Nobody was swimming even though it was a hot summer day. We took the Fishing trail then hooked onto the Fuller and Beacham trail. The trail ends in an open field and you can walk around the lake to get back where you started. The trail would be much better if it was early spring or winter so you could actually see the lake from Beacham trail. The dam is kinda neat to walk across.

The trails are great. They are well marked and there are a lot of them to hike. Mountain bikers love the trails too. Every time we have meet them on the trails they have been very courteous. There is a four mile trail that goes around the lake and over the dam. Beautiful scenery! They also have canoe rental, fishing and swimming area

Oasis of tranquility just minutes from Eureka Springs. Rented a canoe for $7.50/hr to explore the area. There are numerous hiking trails and cabons for rent. The area around the lake is undeveloped offering a respite from the Eureka Springs crowds.
