Prepare for your next outdoor adventures by finding a Lake Ouachita vacation home rental. Lake Ouachita is the largest lake in Arkansas, with 975 miles of shoreline and an area of 40,000 acres. Pronounced WAH-shi-tah, the lake is completely surrounded by the Ouachita National Forest. The lake is one of the cleanest in Arkansas, and the wildlife is extraordinarily diverse.

High in the Ouachita Mountains near the resort spa of Hot Springs, the exceptionally clear water of Lake Ouachita is popular with scuba divers, water skiers and fishermen. Unsurpassed scenic beauty, excellent fishing, water sports of all kinds and a prolific area for rock hounds are just a few of the natural attractions of this area. There are many campgrounds and resorts in close proximity to the Lake, and the area is attractive for laid-back family vacations. At the lake's eastern tip, the state park includes historic Three Sisters' Springs, once thought to have curative powers. This is also a prime area for natural crystal hunting and rock collecting.

Swimming, skiing, scuba diving, boating and fishing for bream, crappie, catfish, stripers and trout can be enjoyed in the open waters and quiet coves of Lake Ouachita.
