Outlet Area Park is located on the beautiful Blue Mountain Lake near Waveland, Arkansas.

Visitors are greeted with shaded campsites, spectacular scenery and many outdoor recreation opportunities. Blue Mountain Lake provides the ideal spot to get away from it all, relax and enjoy fishing, boating, hunting, hiking and more.


Families, anglers, boaters, hikers, water skiers and hunters are drawn to the lake for its recreational activities. Forests around the lake are also open to hunting. The river channel through Outlet Area Park provides prime bank fishing opportunities for crappie, largemouth and white bass, bream and catfish. Families can make use of Outlet Area’s playground, and the shady, cypress tree-lined swimming area in nearby Waveland Park. The J. Perry Mikels Blue Mountain Special Use Area on the west end of the lake has a world-class bird dog field trial area that attracts visitors from throughout the United States and several other countries. Anyone may use the facilities to train dogs.


Visitors can choose from 26 reservable and 12 non-reservable campsites, with electricity and water hookups, including three multi-family sites. Most sites are waterfront; a few are just a short walk away from the water. Anglers have the convenience of a fish cleaning station.

Natural Features

Blue Mountain Lake is situated in the shadow of Mt. Magazine, the highest mountain in Arkansas and the tallest between the Rockies and Alleghenies.

Farmland, rolling green mountains and two national forests surround the lake, adding to the natural beauty of the area. The lake shore consists of mixed pine and hardwood forests, wetlands and grasslands, which provide habitat for many native wildlife species.

Outlet Area Park is located just downstream of Blue Mountain Dam. Water flow from the dam travels down the river channel through the park as it heads further down in the Petit Jean River Valley.

Nearby Attractions

The lake is situated between the Ozark and Ouachita National Forest, and Mt. Magazine State Park is within a 30-minute drive. Additional information for local attractions is available at chambers of commerce in nearby towns.
