Fishing, fishing and more fishing

February 4th, 2011 by

Guests who crave activity will find our Eureka Springs Cabins to be a vacationer’s paradise. A public access boat ramp just one mile from Sugar Ridge enables our guests to explore a 28,000-acre water playground. Guests without their own boats will find a variety of watercraft available for rent just across Beaver Dam at Starkey Marina. Dam Site Park is a 1,700-acre public use area adjacent to our Eureka Springs Cabins; it features swimming areas, picnic sites, and numerous hiking trails.

Scuba divers prize the clean, crystal clear waters of Beaver Lake. Folks who prefer to stay dry while admiring the lake may do so from the deck of the Belle of the Ozarks, which offers scenic cruises several times a day during the season. There are also several golf courses nearby.

Anglers will find black bass, walleye, and world class striped bass in Beaver Lake; fish from shore, or hire a guide to ensure a successful outing. White River, which winds its way from Beaver Dam to the Missouri border, is home to rainbow and brown trout. There are three shore fishing areas below the dam, including one Trophy catch and release area where a happy angler recently caught a 64.5 pound striped bass. Anglers, that could be you.
