Ozark beauty in Beaver Lake

Beaver Lake spreads out from the Beaver Dam, which crosses the White River just outside of Eureka Springs. The reservoir is a long, snaking body of water that fills up the rock-ribbed valleys of the Ozark range. It's surrounded by pine and oak forests that cluster all over the hills of the Hobbs State Park and filter around the inlets. There are some sandy beaches and bank-side fields to relax on during the summer, and plenty of jetties that have swimming spots. For real American wilds, the Ozark National Forest beckons with its primeval woods and bears to the south.
