Blue Mountain Lake is located in the shadow of Mt. Magazine, Arkansas highest
mountain. Blue Mountain Lake has offered many recreational opportunities since
its completion in 1947.
The excellent fishery
in the lake includes largemouth and white bass, crappie, bream, and catfish.
(Waveland and Outlet Parks) provide tent and trailer spaces, electrical and
water hookups, showers, boat launching ramps, parking areas, fish cleaning
stations, and many other amenities. For information on reserving campsites
please contact the Blue Mountain Lake Field Office.
The lake is within
easy traveling distance of many other points of interest in the state. Mt.
Magazine State Park is located just north of the lake on the mountain for which
it is named; it is accessible on very good state highways with a short 30-minute
drive from the lake. Blue Mountain Lakes location between the Ozark and
Ouachita National Forests complements the natural beauty of the area. There are
plenty of activities available to keep any visitor to Blue Mountain Lake busy.
Additional information for local attractions is available at chambers of
commerce in nearby towns.
