• Surface Area: 645 Acres
Lake Charles is in Lawrence County, Arkansas in the United States. Situated in the The Ozarks along the Black River, 645-acre (261 ha) artificial Lake Charles.
The lake is a result of a partnership of four agencies to construct a multipurpose lake just north of Shirey Bay Rainey Brake Wildlife Management Area in an effort to control flooding and preserve the watershed. Construction on the lake began in 1964, and the park was dedicated in 1967.
The lake is maintained by the AGFC, who stock catfish, crappie, largemouth bass, white bass, and others. Camping is available at any of Lake Charles' 61 campsites (23 class AAA, 37 class B, one RV). Lake Charles offers four trails for walking and hiking, ranging from easy to moderate difficulty. There are picnic areas, a playground, a screened-in pavilion with fans, fishing and boat docks, an interpretive nature center and gift shop.
