About Lake Greeson

The Narrows Dam

Narrows Dam impounds the waters of the Little Missouri River to form 7,000-acre Lake Greeson, a prime recreational resource in southwest Arkansas. The 12-mile-long lake features clear waters and steep, rocky ridges that form numerous islands and long peninsulas extending into the lake.


Swaha Marina near Narrows Dam

Though we do most of our fishing in the Bear Creek area near Kirby Landing, Swaha is a beautiful resort and marina on the lower end of the lake.

Just south of Lake Greeson at Murfreesboro, Crater of Diamonds State Park is the only public diamond field in the world where visitors can search for the gems and keep their finds.


Self Creek Resort & Marina

Self Creek resort and marina is located near the head of the lake off Hwy 70.  Daisy State Park and Kirby Landing are nearby.

A total of 45 miles of walking, nature and cycle trails can be enjoyed in the area surrounding the lake. The Bear Creek Cycle Trail covers 31 miles and spans rocky hills, beautiful pine forests and colorful autumn hardwoods along the shores of the lake. Trail maps are available at the Daisy State Park visitor center.


Lake Greeson's beautiful shoreline

One of the five Diamond Lakes that populate the west central part of the state, Lake Greeson offers ample opportunity for water sports, camping and other outdoor recreation.


Some of the best camping in the state can be found at either Kirby Landing or Daisy State Park. Kirby Landing currently has over 80 sites with a new addition in construction.  Full access water and electric, pull through sites are available.

Arkansas' best kept secret

The lake's rich variety of game fish includes such species as largemouth, smallmouth, spotted, striped and white bass, flathead and channel catfish, black and white crappie, walleye and bluegill. In the Little Missouri River tailwaters below the dam, rainbow trout are stocked by the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission.
