Lake Ouachita In Arkansas

Lake Ouachita, Arkansas

Boating, camping and fishing.

An excellent boating venue surrounded by the scenic Ouachita National Forest, Lake Ouachita is the largest lake in AR. The 40,000-acre lake has 690 miles of shoreline and a multitude of ways to enjoy the outdoor activities, boating and fishing. Conveniently located mid-state, slightly west of center, the lake is only 25 miles northwest of Hot Springs. Primary public access, along with marinas, boat launch ramps and camping facilities, is along the southern perimeter of the lake. In and nearby these public access areas are sections of shoreline for fishing from the bank. Bass, crappie, walleye, trout, catfish, sunfish, white bass, pike and stripers roam these waters and thrill anglers both young and old, novice and experienced. And the water is clear enough to attract scuba divers and snorkel enthusiasts. Boat rental outlets can expand options for getting on the water for water sports and fishing. Cautious use of kayaks, canoes and small fishing boats can enhance a weekend fishing and camping weekend, or a family vacation.
