ROGERS, Ark. – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is cautioning boaters about low water conditions at Beaver Lake.

With inflows being low, the lake level is currently around 1112.7 feet. The last time Beaver Lake was at this level was in 2017. Although low, this is within the normal operation of the reservoir for its conservation purposes of hydroelectric power production and water supply.

Officials urge boaters to take extra safety measures as some areas may include underwater obstacles such as land points, tree stumps, rock formations and standing timber.
Boaters should slow down, wear life jackets, use depth finders or other navigation resources, give the shoreline a wide birth and be especially careful at night.

Information on water levels can be found on the Little Rock District website at by clicking on the water level button or by using the district smartphone app that can be found by searching “USACE Little Rock” in all major app stores. Additional recreation information can be found on the Internet at, on Facebook at and on X (Twitter) at
