The Area

You won't run out of things to do here, and the Beaver Lake Get-A-Way is close to it all.

Besides Beaver Lake activities, there's golf, hiking, horseback riding, mountain biking, civil war history, hunting, great restaurants and shopping.

Take a minute and tour our area. We think you'll find plenty to do year round.

Beaver Lake

Of course it's hard to overlook Beaver Lake from here. The first of a series of Corps of Engineer lakes on the White River, Beaver has almost 500 miles of shore line and over 28,000 acres of surface area. Smallmouth, Largemouth, and Striper bass, crappie, bream, channel and spoonbill catfish all live in abundance in the lake. The Arkansas State record Striper (64 pounds 8 ounces) was caught right here at the Beaver Dam. Below the dam in the cold waters of the White River, the trout fishing is some of the best anywhere.

Beaver Lake Get-A-Way is only a mile from Prairie Creek Marina (directions) with a boat launch, restaurant, live bait, and swim area. Boat rentals are also available. The north end of Beaver Lake is known for its good water and great boating. Bring your bass boat, ski boat, or personal water craft and see what a wonderful lake it is.

Golf

Excellent golf courses can be found just a few miles from the Get-A-Way.
Here's a partial list of courses:

  • Prairie Creek Country Club - 1.5 miles (directions)
  • Lost Springs Golf and Athletic Club - 7.2 miles (directions)
  • Big Sugar Golf Club - 10.6 miles (directions)
  • Pinnacle Country Club (Private) - 12.3 miles (directions)
  • Creeks Golf Course - 16.6 miles (directions)

    So don't forget to bring your clubs when you visit!

    Hobbs State Park - Conservation Area

    One of the area's greatest treasures, Hobbs State Park is only about 20 minutes from the Get-A-Way (directions) covering 12,045 acres along the southern shores of Beaver Lake. Four hiking trails including a 1/2-mile, barrier-free historical trail and 21-mile multi-use trail; an all-weather public firing range; regulated seasonal hunting; and undeveloped access to Beaver Lake make Hobbs a natural for hiking, mountain biking, and horseback riding. Hobbs is Arkansas's only state park where hunting is allowed. They don't call us "The Natural State" without reason.

    Pea Ridge Military Park

    Civil War historians can spend the day at Pea Ridge National Military Park. Less than 30 minutes away (directions), the park includes the re-creation of the historic Elkhorn Tavern, which was the scene of the two-day battle’s heaviest fighting; remnants of the original section of the Telegraph/Military Road, an important thoroughfare prior to the war; and the battlefield itself. The park also contains approximately two-and-a-half miles of the Trail of Tears as followed by some members of the Cherokee Nation.

    Ozark Arts and Crafts Fairs

    Each Spring and Fall the Ozark hills come alive with the sights, sounds and smells of the War Eagle Mill Antique & Craft Show in May and the wildly popular War Eagle Mill Arts & Crafts Fair in October. If you're coming for one of the shows there's no better place to stay than the Get-A-Way, just 10 miles from War Eagle Mill (directions).
