Cradled between the Ouachita and Ozark Mountains, Nimrod Lake has proven popular with fishers and hunters since it was completed in 1942. It is the oldest Corps of Engineers lake in the state. The lake has an abundance of crappie, largemouth bass, bream, catfish and white bass.  Water sports such as waterskiing, swimming and boating are also very popular activities.  The lake was named after Nimrod, a hunter who was the great grandson of Noah, and is adjacent to the Scenic Byway 7.
