Welcome to Lake Fayetteville!

Lake Fayetteville comprises 458 acres of land and 194 acres of water. The lake is a fisherman's dream and offers an abundance of recreational activities for outdoor enthusiasts. There are several components of Lake Fayetteville, including the North Shore Park and disc golf course, Veterans Memorial Park, a boat dock and marina, Lake Fayetteville Softball Complex, boat and bike rentals, and The Botanical Garden of the Ozarks. There is also a 5.5-mile nature trail around the lake, as well as 4.3 miles of hard-surface multi-use trail that also circles the lake.

Lake History

Bonds were issued to construct the lake in 1948 as a source of drinking water, and the project was completed in 1949. The lake was named Lake Fayetteville in 1950. In 1959, the Beaver Water District was established to provide area cities with treated water from Beaver Lake. Since then, Lake Fayetteville has been utilized for recreational purposes.
