Lake Ouachita is owned by the Army Corp of Engineers. It encompasses 48,000 acres, almost all of which are protected from development by the federal government. It has been established that it is the second cleanest lake in the United States. Just marvelous!

Rented jet skis & paddle boards from Mountain Harbor. Seemed like we had the whole lake to ourselves and it was so clean! If you actually see any people, they are very friendly. We will be back, oh yes, we will.

Lake Ouachita is the first sister in the three lakes around Hot Springs. It is a large, beautiful lake with plenty of room for fishermen, boaters, skiers and swimmers. The shoreline is not as developed as other local lakes.
