This mountain lake resort community straddles both Van Buren & Cleburne counties, perched on the beautiful Lake that continues to enthrall artists and sportsmen alike. This “City of Distinction” has garnered a reputation for its numerous festivals, arts venues, and ambitious civic programs. Discover the wonder of the Indian Rock Park, Cave & Museum, or enjoy good company and live music in the village mall.
The newly-renovated Conference & Visitor Center on the main entrance (Dave Creek Parkway) is a hub of activity, hosting rotating art exhibits and live music from local talent and special guest performers. Golf courses dot the lakeside landscape, including the Mountain Ranch Golf Course that is part of the National State Golf Trail. The conveniently-located Wyndham Resorts are a hugely popular travel destination, so you can enjoy a taste of the good life on the waterfront!
Life in the Bay is good year-round, and lake dwellers know how to throw a proper festival. Bloomin’ on the Bay paints the town in technicolor blooms for a two-day gardening extravaganza, while Surf the Bay is the region’s premier watersport festival, featuring a stellar lineup of wakeboarding, parasailing, and more.
