Welcome to the City of Lakeview in Baxter County, Arkansas
also known as the “Paradise of the Ozarks”!
No, this is not “Paradise” with swaying palm trees, high end spas and casinos, but for those that consider Nature in its purest “Paradise”, this is it!
Located on the forested shores of Bull Shoals Lake and next to the famous trout fishing of the White River, Lakeview, is a vacation center with an economy based on the tourism industry. The city plays host to many anglers, as well as the many visitors who return each year with their families. Lakeview’s resort facilities and the availability of first-rate water sports are widely known.
In addition to the Civic Center building, the City Park adjacent to the building has a pavilion which is used throughout the late spring, summer, and early fall for family reunions, the Farmers’ Market and other groups wishing a nice facility with grills, gardens, a walking trail, shade, tables, benches and clean restrooms.
Business services include many resorts in the area as well as dining, auto repair, real estate, banks, and medical services, bait and tackle shops, beauty salons, and an enlarged, improved marina with access to thousands of miles of pristine water.
Two large State parks and a Corps of Engineers park next to the White River and Bull Shoals Lake, plus walking trails provide attractive areas for recreational activities and camping.
Our weather unfolds in a new panorama each season. Spring brings soft rains with breathtaking redbud and dogwood foliage. The summers are warm but the lake and river entice you to a swim or just go fishing to keep your cool. The area loves to show off its Crepe Myrtles, blooming in red, pink and white through June, July, and August. Fall is pleasant with temperatures in the 70′s during the day and brisk cool evenings. It is perfect for walks among the brilliant turning leaves on the vast variety of trees. The winters are short and mild with at least one snowfall to make this a winter wonderland.
