Lakes in Arkansas

Arkansas, home to the prettiest lakes you've ever seen! That's right - Arkansas has lots of gorgeous lakes for boaters and other lake enthusiasts. And 18 of them are located in state parks that offer camping, hiking and other recreational opportunities.

Check out Bull Shoals Lake in White River State Park. At over 45,000 acres, Bull Shoals is the largest man-made lake in the state. By comparison, Lake Gleeson in Daisy State Park is downright petite at a mere 7,000 acres, but it's one of the clearest, cleanest lakes you'll find, perfect for swimming, snorkeling and skiing. If it's boating and fishing you're after, be sure to visit Millwood Lake in Millwood State Park. A relatively shallow lake, Millwood has depths no greater than eight feet. It's great for canoeing and kayaking, as well as fishing.
