Arkansas River - Robert S. Kerr Pool

Description:

Robert S. Kerr Lock and Dam is located along the Arkansas River Navigation System. The lake area is beautiful any time of the year. It is especially scenic when flowering shrubs and leaf buds decorate the landscape with a soft glow in spring, or when the brilliant colors of fall start to unfold. You can see these magnificent changes from one of our many Public Use Area's or from our Short Mountain Hiking Trail. For young and old alike Kerr Lake has a variety of recreation for everyone, from swimming on our many beaches to camping ad picnicking in one of our five park areas. Our camping areas include facilities such as boat launching ramps, designated camps sites, picnic areas, drinking water, shower facilities and sanitary facilities. Whether by power boat, sailboat or any type of craft, the broad expanse and depth of the water just above the dam and extending about 7 miles upstream, will satisfy the demand for any type of pleasure craft. Robert S. Kerr Reservoir provides excellent opportunities for fishing and hunting. Principal species of fish in the lake include largemouth and striped bass, white crappie, channel and flathead catfish, walleye and various sunfish species. Opportunities are equally as good for the hunting enthusiast. Principal species present at the project include white tailed deer, fox and gray squirrel, cottontail and swamp rabbit, raccoon, mink, opossum, bobwhite quail, mourning dove and several species of waterfowl.
