Beaver Lake & Dam

Constructed in the early 1960’s the dam spans the White River and creates the Beaver Lake reservoir. The lake serves as a huge recreational venue for divers, boaters, campers and fishing but also provides the water source for most of Northwest Arkansas communities. The dam towers over the tail waters below and is anchored in the limestone bluffs along one side and is a source for hydroelectric power. The south side offers a great vantage point for a scenic overlook and photo opportunity.
