Mountain Pine - Lake Ouachita State Park

5451 Mountain Pine Road

Surrounded by the Ouachita National Forest, Lake Ouachita is known for its scenic natural beauty and the clarity of its waters. These pristine waters form the largest manmade lake within Arkansas's borders. Named one of the cleanest lakes in America, 40,000-acre Lake Ouachita is a water sports mecca for swimming, skiing, scuba diving, boating, and fishing. Angling for bream, crappie, catfish, stripers, and largemouth bass can be enjoyed in open waters or quiet coves along the lake's 975 miles of shoreline.

Located just a short drive from the spa city of Hot Springs on the lake's eastern shore, Lake Ouachita State Park is your gateway to this popular water sports lake.

Great place! My husband and kids went on the Caddo Bend Trail and had a blast! We didn’t walk the whole thing but found a pathway down to the lake front and had a snack at the picnic tables! My kids are 4 and 6 and did fine on the trail! The marina also had great rates for fishing boat rentals, paddle boats and kayaks! We will definitely be back when we have more time!

It is a great state park to go to. They have big cabins with 4 queen beds, two full baths with bath tub, living room, and a kitchen. You can have the fire place going on a chilly night. Also, you could stay in the smaller cabins that includes a bunk bed, a queen bed, a table with seats, and a outside charcoal grill. It is much more affordable and still have the comfort of staying a night on a mattress. They have a great long Trail that goes near the lake so you could take a dip on a hot summer. They do provide boat rentals or even canoes and kayaks. You could also go swim at the swimming beach. One of our top parks to go!

I could go on and on about how many things I love about this whole area of Lake Ouachita. One of my favorite places to BE , on this Earth. The lake is crystal clear as long as you go a bit away from the edge where organic debris collects.. Just go there, enjoy the views, hike, walk, swim , fish , boat , bicycle, horse ride... you get the idea? Campinfo also ...

Scenic picnic spot. Lot to offer for water sports activities. Clean beach. We had most mesmerizing view of sunset on one of the most solitude, peaceful, nature filled crawdad island trail. It's been after a long while spotted fire flies. Twice I visited and both time we were the only people on the trail. Although under developed steep stay away from edges kind of trail for adventure seekers
