Located on the Arkansas River in the west-central part of the state, this lake is a major unit of the Arkansas River Navigation Project. The lake stretches 50 miles up the Arkansas River Valley from Dardanelle Lock and Dam to Ozark-Jeta Taylor Lock and Dam. About 315 miles of shoreline give the visitor ample fishing and camping opportunities. A visitor’s center, located 1.5 miles west of Hwy. 7 at the Old Post Road Park, has exhibits that explain the development of the Arkansas River Valley from the days of the Indians to the present through interpretive exhibits entitled “Renaissance of a River.”
