Beaver Lake covers 32,000 acres with 483 miles of shoreline in NW Arkansas. It’s a good idea to bring your GPS along if you plan to kayak on this beauty. A floppy hat and some sunscreen won’t hurt either. I put in near the bridge on highway 12 just east of Rogers. It was hot but a little splash of water, and a nice rest on an island for some wading and a cold adult refreshment took the edge off.
