Lake Columbia is a 3,000-acre impoundment stretching for six miles along Beech Creek. It was constructed in 1986 by the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission, which provides three concrete boat ramps, two with accompanying courtesy boat docks and fishing piers accessible to persons with handicaps. A picnic area is available in a day-use area on the lake's south shore.
The lake is divided into four zones, including a small area off-limits to unauthorized visitors. Fishing is allowed on the rest of the lake, and the western half is also open for pleasure-boating and water sports.
Location: six miles northwest of Magnolia in south central Arkansas
