Situated among the beautiful pine forest, Arkansas's Lake Ouachita is the largest lake located entirely within Arkansas. It is known for its scenic beauty and clear waters. Created when Blakely Mountain Dam impounded the waters of the Ouachita River near Hot Springs, the lake is virtually surrounded by the Ouachita National Forest and has one of Arkansas's most pristine shorelines at some 970 miles.
