Things To Do

Overview

The stretch of the Arkansas River on which W.D. Mayo Lock and Dam are located was once a lawless, rugged area, identified on early maps as Indian Territory. Still rugged and beautiful, this shoreline is accessible today both by waterway and by several roads leading to three boat ramp access areas. Visits to the dam throughout the year show its wide variations of seasonal beauty. During the spring, the redbud, dogwood, and wild plum are a delight to behold. The brilliant reds and golds of blackjack, post oak, red oak, hickory, pecan, walnut, sycamore, and sumac in the fall are breathtaking.

There have been three areas developed in area. The three areas are for boat ramp access only. Opportunities for fishing and hunting in the area around the dam are abundant. Principal fish types include: channel and flathead catfish, largemouth bass, crappie, striped bass, carp, buffalo, walleye, bream, and various sunfish.
