Until the completion of the private lake at the Paradise Dive Adventure facility, we are still using Beaver Lake for all of the open water training dives. After the completion of the private lake we will continue to use Beaver Lake for some "Specialty courses" as well.
Beaver Lake, nestled high in the Ozark Mountains, is located in northwest Arkansas, the birthplace of the White River. With some 487 miles of natural shoreline, Beaver Lake offers the best in recreational opportunities for outdoor enthusiasts of all ages.
Taking advantage of the natural and scenic beauty, the Corps of Engineers has constructed a variety of recreational facilities around the lake. Paved access roads wind through nine developed parks. In these camp grounds, visitors can enjoy modern campsites offering electricity and fire-rings with drinking water, showers, and restrooms nearby. Other facilities such as picnic sites, swimming beaches, hiking trails, boat launching ramps, sanitary dump stations, group picnic shelters, and amphitheaters are also available in the parks. Seven Corps of Engineers parks contain year-around commercial marinas providing grocery items, fuel, boat rental and storage, fishing guides and other supplies and services.
Beaver Lake offers several areas of interest for scuba divers. Like the school bus and foundations, the Dam site bluffs, sunken sailboat, underwater statues, sunken car, and for the more adventurous, underwater amphitheater, just to name a few.
