The DeGray Lake Resort State Park offers golf courses, tennis courts, horseback riding trails and more along the 207 miles of lake shoreline.
The Ouachita National Forest and Hot Springs National Park are both located nearby.
Boating, water skiing, kayaking and other water sports are the biggest draw to the lake, and a boat ramp is provided.
The lake is also stocked with a variety of game fish, including plenty of hybrid striped bass, making it an ideal area for both boat and bank fishing.
