The Underrated Lake Hiding In Arkansas With Endless Opportunities For Fun
Along the southern edge of the Ouachita National Forest resides a peaceful little paradise. Shady Lake is a rather underrated place but has plenty of fun activities to fill a day trip or camping weekend. Let’s pack a picnic and head to this gorgeous spot.
We would love to see photos of your Shady Lake adventures in our Facebook Group, Arkansas Nature Lovers. You should join for your chance to be featured and to discover why there’s nothing better than Arkansas’ stunning nature.
If you continue south you’ll reach another lovely lake for a day trip.
