Norfork Lake stems from the North Fork River in northern Arkansas and southern Missouri. It's about 25 miles east of Bull Shoals lake, and cuts through the Ozark Mountains.
The Ozarks are made from a heavily eroded plateau, shaped and carved by hundreds of streams over thousands of years. The region attracts a wide array of plants and animals.
Head south to see the Ozark National Forest and head west to see Bull Shoals Lake, a similar man-made lake that's larger in size and equally entertaining as Norfork.
Sailing the open waters makes for an exciting water activity. Scuba diving in the lake is common, attracting divers from neighboring U.S. states.
For visitors interested in fishing, Norfork Lake is stocked annually, and it's not unheard of to catch striped bass over 40 pounds.
From Mountain Home, AR, travel 9 miles east on US 412/62, then 19 miles north on SR 101 to State Highway O in Bakersfield, MO. Follow Highway O for approximately 9 miles until you reach Udall Park.
