This Beautiful Beach In Arkansas Will Take You A Million Miles Away From It All

Summer’s still kicking it, and the weather is still right for some quality lake time. If you’re looking for a beach that feels secluded, but is actually just a few minutes away from Arkansas’s favorite resort town, look no further than Lake Catherine in Hot Springs. Lake Catherine is one of west-central Arkansas’s five diamond lakes, and it’s the perfect place to have some warm weather fun. There are seventy campsites there, many other ways to stay, and lots to do, but there’s one little beach in particular that captured our attention. It overlooks the lake, and it comes with a pier, a shade tree, a grill, and a picnic table. So no matter what you plan to do with your lake time, this place is the ideal spot.
