Lake Ouachita

Lake Ouachita (Wash'i*taw), formed in 1955, has 975 miles of rugged shoreline which encompass 48,000 acres of clean, inviting, sporting waters. Recognized as one of Arkansas' superior fishing lakes where bass, crappie, bream and catfish abound, Lake Ouachita is also stocked with rainbow trout, northern pike and ocean stripers which add to the lake's fishing thrills. Lake Ouachita's wide open waters and quiet lagoons offer fun to water-skiers, sailing enthusiasts, canoeists, and scuba divers. Situated among the beautiful pine forests at the eastern end of the lake is Lake Ouachita State Park!

With over 200 islands, Lake Ouachita stretches westward from Blakely Mountain Dam and into the headwaters of the Ouachita River, spanning nearly half of Garland and Montgomery Counties in the Ouachita Mountains of west-central Arkansas.
