Yellowtail Dam is among the highest in the U.S. at 525 ft. It is utilized for irrigation water, flood control, recreation and power generation. A visitors center is open from Memorial Day to Labor Day.
This long, narrow, spectacular lake is more than 70 miles long and was formed by the creation of Yellowtail Dam. The lake is 200 to 500 ft. deep and most areas can only be accessed by boat. In summer months, it is popular for fishing (trout, carp, bass), boating, waterski, jetski, etc. A small marina near Ft. Smith services the lake (Ok-a-Beh Marina), with boat launch, boat slips (nightly or seasonal rental) and rental pontoons.
