The Underrated Arkansas Lake That’s Perfect For A Summer Day

You’re familiar with Arkansas’s diamond lakes, I’m sure. You’ve probably also heard some talk about Beaver Lake, even if you haven’t been there yourself. There are a few lakes in Arkansas, however, that just don’t get the attention they deserve. One of those incredible lakes is hiding in the upper Delta. That gorgeous lake is called Lake Charles, and it makes for a perfect summer day trip.

Lake Charles State Park is located at 3705 AR-25 in Powhatan.
