Ozark Lake is a major unit in the multiple-purpose plan of development of the Arkansas River and tributaries, known as the McClellan-Kerr Arkansas River Navigation System. Ozark Lake covers 10,600 acres of water area and a land area of 6,349 acres surrounds the lake and extends around the shoreline for a distance of 173 miles. The lake is situated in Franklin, Crawford, and Sebastian Counties and extends 36 miles along the Arkansas River. The shoreline varies from steep bluffs and tree-lined banks to open farm lands and level fields. Nine parks are located along the banks of Ozark Lake and just over 150 campsites are available in the area.
Ozark Lake offers great fishing for catfish, bream, crappie, and bass.
