Lake Fayetteville

Lake Fayetteville is comprised of 458 acres of land and 194 acres of water. In 1948 bonds were issued to construct Lake Fayetteville. The lake was completed in 1949 and was used as a source of drinking water. The lake was named Lake Fayetteville in 1950. The Beaver Water District was established in 1959 by Fayetteville, Springdale, Rogers and Bentonville to provide the cities with treated water from Beaver Lake. After that time, Lake Fayetteville has been utilized for recreational purposes.

Lake Fayetteville is a fisherman's dream and offers an abundance of recreational activities for outdoor enthusiasts. There are several components of Lake Fayetteville including Veterans Memorial Park, Boat Dock and Marina / Fishing, Lake Fayetteville Softball Complex, North Shore and the Botanical Garden of the Ozarks. There is a 5.5-mile nature trail around the lake as well as 4.3 miles of hard surface multi use trail that, when completed, will circle the lake as well.
