The trip is limited to the first 10 couples or 20 individuals that sign up. Registration and pre-payment is required. The cost is $60 per couple. Call 479-789-5000 for more information and to register.

Trail’s End Resort is located on the main channel of Beaver Lake, just a short distance from the POINT “8” marker. It consists of more than 20 wooded acres, furnished cedar log cabins, barbecue grills, picnic tables, a playground, vending machines, a modern laundry facility, and a restaurant. There are an abundance of deer, wild turkey and other wildlife in the area to watch and photograph. The covered and lighted boat dock has a fish cleaning station. There is also an open dock for large boats, sailboats, or just for fishing. Various boats are available to rent — paddle boats, pontoon boats, and even a bass boat. The resort is open year round.
