What does 'Ouachita' mean?: Ouachita is a Name given to the Ouachita river during the French occupation of the region, originally the name was 'Washita', roughly translated meaning, .'River of good hunting grounds...and sparkling silver water'...
The major Indian tribes that lived along the OUACHITA were the Washita, Caddo, Osage, Tensas, Chickasaw and Choctaw. Time brought about a great change to their primitive world as the white settlers moved into the Ouachita Valley.
Is Lake Ouachita a natural lake or man-made?: Lake Ouachita (Pronounced WAH-shi-tah) is a lake created by the damming of the Ouachita River by Blakely Mountain Dam. The lake is located near Hot Springs, Arkansas. Lake Ouachita is the largest lake in Arkansas, with over 975 miles of shoreline and over 40,000 acres (160 km²). It is completely surrounded by the Ouachita National Forest. Lake Ouachita is located near two other lakes, Lake Hamilton and Lake Catherine. These three lakes, DeGray Lake to the near south, and the thermal springs of Hot Springs National Park make the Ouachita area a popular tourist getaway.
More about Lake Ouachita: The purpose of the man-made Lake Ouachita is flood control, navigation, recreation, and hydroelectricity. It is one of the cleanest lakes in Arkansas, and its wildlife is very diverse. Some people say that there is a species of rare, non-stinging jellyfish in the lake. These jellyfish are said to have been seen mostly by scuba divers diving in the lake. Also sponges are said to live here. One area of Lake Ouachita features large crystal veins, some of the largest in the world. Largemouth, Smallmouth, and Spotted bass are abundant in the lake. So is Bream, Crappie, Catfish, Walleye, and Striped Bass. In fact, Lake Ouachita is known as the Striped Bass Capital of the World. Blakely Mountain Dam started construction in 1948,was completed in 1953, and started generating electricity in 1955, the dam is 1,100 feet long, and has an average height of 205 feet. There are 21 recreational parks and areas, 150 picnic sites, 1,106 campsites, 13 swimming beaches, and 24 boat ramps.
The last review here doesn't even go with this property. This property is a trailer so there is no elevator. That review is suppose to go to property 167027 in New Jersey, this property is 167027ha. This property is by far the worst property we have ever vacationed in. It is basically in a trailer park and is renting like it's a four star hotel. When we got there we could either drive the three hours back home with our two cars, six people, jet skis, and dogs or stay here and call owner as we left since there was no way we could find another place to stay with pets and six people at the last minute. The place has holes in the ceiling and walls, dog food was left in fridge, food was burnt on the oven and microwave. The pictures on this site are even outdated. It looks good on here. The place now has vinyl that has been there for a while since it is coming up on all the edges. There was even used bar soap left in both bathrooms. The master bedroom door wouldn't latch and there is no door on the master bath. Therefore our kids and my mother in law saw my wife and I naked during this trip. The other bathroom also didn't latch so one of my sons saw him grandma naked. Yeah we had a great trip in this shack. The porch door also didn't latch and the front door didn't shut right. There is a window broken with fridge sitting in front of it. Cob webs everywhere. Was able to write on mirror in the dirt that everything's filthy. The ac filter looked like it hadn't been changed in a year or more. The grass hadn't been mowed and the place has ants and roaches. Had mildew in cabinets. Ceiling fans filthy. The owner said at first he was going to give us a credit but haven't heard from him again after several calls and emails. I wish that there was a link to load up pictures of the filth. We took over 50 of this dump. A total rip off. Don't stay here.
My family and I stayed in the cabin for the 4th of July weekend and we had a wonderful time. We did fireworks, went walking, we cooked outside, we went boating with my sister and friends. I highly recommend the cabin; the place is just beautiful, spacious, clean, the beds are very comfortable, the porch is big, friendly neighborhood, the perfect place to have a good time. I promise you will love it.
We currently just stayed in this property. It was great! I would reccomend this property to anyone. Dealing with the property owner was a pleasure and the location was perfect. Thanks!
Pirate's Cove Cabin Rental - Hideaway Cabin on Lake Ouachita, 3 Blocks from Boat Ramp, 20 miles to Hot Springs Village, 27 miles to Hot Springs
There's definitely something to be said about having your own private cabin settled on Lake Ouachita (3 blocks from nearest boat ramp), one of Arkansas' proudest State Parks, featuring over 1000 miles of shoreline... And yet only needing to travel a short distance to be in the middle of Hot Springs, Arkansas' most attractive locations for entertainment and tourism.
Probably the best thing about the location is the ability to mix the pleasure of the secluded - hiking, biking, boating, swimming, hunting, and enjoying the great outdoors like none other than 'The Natural State' can offer, along with the niceness of Hot Springs - fine dining, horse races, casino slots, bath houses, museums, and so much more.
Feel free to call and ask about nearby restaurants and attractions - we're available most of the time and always happy to help. ;)
