Information: Beaver Lake is a man-made reservoir in the Ozark Mountains of Northwest Arkansas and is formed by a dam across the White River. Beaver Lake has some 487 miles (784 km) of natural shoreline. With towering limestone bluffs, natural caves and a wide variety of trees and flowering shrubs, it is a popular tourist destination. Beaver Dam was authorized by the Flood Control Act of 1944 and other following acts. The United States Army Corps of Engineers constructed Beaver Dam during the years 1960-1966, impounding a major part of the White River and creating Beaver Lake and flooding much of the valley including the remains of the historic resort town Monte Ne. Power generation began in May 1965 and continues today. The initial cost of the project was $60 million. The lake is approximately 50 mi (80 km) in length and covers approximately 31,700 acres (128 km2), with about 483 mi (777 km) of shoreline and an elevation of 1,120 ft (341 m).
