Swim Beach Closure

ROGERS, Ark. – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Beaver Lake Project Office has closed the swim beaches at Lost Bridge North and Damsite Peninsula on Beaver Lake until further notice. The temporary closure is the result of higher than acceptable E. coli levels that were found during routine testing conducted by project office personnel. 

USACE has posted signs indicating high bacteria levels at this location. Swimming is not recommended in areas with high bacteria levels. Once bacteria levels are within the acceptable range the swim beaches will reopen.

For more information on the status of other recreation areas contact the Beaver Lake Project Office at 479-636-1210.
