Our guests only rentals include a 20-foot deluxe, multi-purpose pontoon boat and a 16-foot run-about/fishing boat we call the Lake Explorer. The pontoon comes with all the goodies, including a rear deck for sunbathing, stereo, live wells and plenty of room. The Lake Explorer is faster than the pontoon, but also comes with a trolling motor, casting seat and combination depth gauge and fish finder. And for those of you who would like to bring your own boat, we have several 30-foot long boat slips for rent on a nightly basis.
When it comes to Beaver Lake, it's not the quantity--it's the quality. In these clear waters, our stripers gain an average of 3 to 5 pounds per year, making the lake nationally famous for trophy fish. In fact, Beaver Lake was home to very first bass fishing tournament ever organized in the United States in 1967 spawning the modern day bass tournament model. Your guide, Gene Chapman with Beaver Guide Service, has been arranging trips on these waters and the equally spectacular White River for 30 years and definitely knows where to fish.
Sun or shade, but relaxed either way. Sometimes just doing nothing is the best thing to do, and few places are nicer for doing that nothing than our lake facilities with their beautiful view of the Ozark Mountains. The sun deck has numerous lounge chairs for lazing away in the afternoon, while the shaded picnic area is ideal for reading or just watching the water. Pack a lunch when you come down and you can alternate all day between fishing, sunning, snacking and snoozing.
Take your pick of ways to explore nearby areas of Beaver Lake by either canoe, kayak or pedal boat. Each with ample room for a picnic basket and cooler, you can make an enjoyable morning or afternoon on the lake without the need to drive anywhere or spend a dime. You can also grab a fishing pole and some bait out of the fishing room and head off into the quiet, rarely fished, nearby coves with their interesting bluffs and numerous submerged trees making an ideal habit for Beaver Lake's teaming aquatic population.
