Bucolic Arkansas in Beaver Lake

It's a pretty moment when the Ozark plateaus give way to the glimmering waters of Beaver Lake. Just east of Rogers and Springdale, they wiggle into the mountains with cliff-ringed bays and jetty-poked inlets. Wholesome enjoyments fill the days between the white oak and pine trees there, whether that means lazy fishing sessions or wild-water swimming sessions. Hiking and camping are also popular pursuits up in the rustic reaches of northern Arkansas, or you could just book one of the luxury Beaver Lake vacation rentals to while away those country hours in style.

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.
