Beaver Lake in Arkansas Ozarks Driving through beautiful fall colors in North West Arkansas Ozarks

Beaver Lake Facts

  • Dam completed in 1966

  • 28,370 acre lake

  • Max. length: 50 mi (80 km)

  • Striper and hybrid combined daily limit is three

Ozark Mountain Views

The southern end of the Ozarks
 is called the Boston Mountains

Life definitely moves slower here, so if you can see yourself slowing down enough to sit on a creek bank with your feet in the water, chances are good you are seeing yourself in the Ozarks.



What is great about
Northwest Arkansas?

There are so many different kinds of people, all of whom find their own reasons to love it here. You’ll love the curvy roads with breathtaking views around each corner. The limestone rock formations are so unique; they seem like towering old giants. The Ozarks are the oldest mountain range on the North American continent, and as such they appear "soft". They are worn down with time; many down to the bedrock. Clear water gurgles out of cracks in the stone, creating mossy waterfalls in spring and long icicles in winter.



This page is visited by over 50 people a day who are looking for property
that is ideal for Preppers, Survivalists, Homesteaders.

Local Information

Northwest Arkansas has it all!  The national HQ for Wall Mart, Tyson Foods, J. B. Hunt Trucking, along with XNA National Airport and the University of Arkansas, Beaver lake, are all within easy reach while living in the scenic, tranquil hills.  Resort towns, such as Branson and Eureka Springs, are also just a half hour to an hour away. This is the most prosperous area in all of Arkansas.  Veterans will be pleased to hear that there is a VA hospital in Fayetteville.

We proudly boast four distinct seasons, all about equal in duration. Spring could be considered the most beautiful of all: the dogwoods and redbuds can be counted on to take you by surprise. You might not truly know how the term "spring green" originated until you spend time here in March and April. You’ll even catch glimpses of the new crop of fawns, or be treated to a wild turkey mating display. Summer is nice and hot, so you’ll be constantly tempted to leap into one of the many bodies of water nearby. The consistently cold White River is world-renowned for its rainbow- and brown-trout fishing, while the smaller Kings River is perfect for canoeing, kayaking, fishing, camping and swimming. The clean, deep Beaver Lake and Table Rock Lake are great for all types of water recreation, especially water-skiing.

If the fall season is more your cup of tea, our colors will take your breath away! Scarlet maples vie with the orange oaks and neon yellow elms for your eyes’ delight. Camping is a popular fall activity, although here in the Ozarks you can camp comfortably almost year ‘round. Ozark winters are typically mild; with days and nights cool enough for snuggling in front of a cozy fire, but rarely bitterly cold. The occasional snow is greatly anticipated, but doesn’t usually stick around long enough to wear out its welcome. Bald eagles choose to winter here, gracing our waterways with their majestic presence. All in all, the seasons strike a great balance.

As for the people, you shouldn’t find it hard to make friends around here. You’ll find hard-working farm families and good old country folks, people who have lived off this land for several generations.  You can truly have the best of both worlds: unspoiled natural beauty in close proximity along with being a great job and education opportunity area.  So whether you want to live in a small town, or on a secluded hunting retreat in the woods with a beautiful view, or raise cattle and mow hay, you need to come and see what is being offered here. Imagine deer grazing in your yard, or hunting bear, or turkey, or fishing.

Most of this land is owned by one man who is offering excellent prices and self financing. 



Owner will consider trading (up or down) for investment property, or jewelry, etc.
