Gillham Lake was created in Southwest Arkansas following the 1975 completion of a dam on the Cossatot River. The 1,370-acre reservoir, located in Howard and Polk counties, features U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' recreation areas that include some 70 campsites, boat ramps, swimming areas, picnic sites and other recreational facilities.

The lake is best known among anglers for its largemouth bass, but fishing for crappie, bream, and catfish is also good.
