Beaver Lake and Dam, completed in 1966, was constructed in the White River Basin and boasts 449 miles of beautiful shoreline at the top of the conservation pool.
Although the dam was originally built for flood control, hydroelectric power and public water supply, it has also created a popular recreational oasis.
Several marinas are located around the lake, offering groceries, fuel, boat rentals and storage, fishing guides and camping supplies. Click here for more information.
Fishing opportunities are plentiful near Dam Site River Campground. Just below the dam, the cold waters of the upper White River provide a perfect habitat for pole-bending rainbow and record-sized German brown trout. Nearby Beaver Lake has more than 28,000 surface acres of water, where anglers can try their luck at catching large and small-mouth bass, crappie, bream, white bass, stripers, and channel or spoon-bill catfish.
Several trails snake throughout the Ozark Mountains, offering peaceful hiking, biking and wildlife viewing opportunities for visitors.
