Water Level History

About Norfork Lake

Lake Norfork is a beautiful reservoir located in northern Arkansas, United States, near the border with southern Missouri. The lake was created by the construction of the Norfork Dam on the North Fork River, a tributary of the White River, in the early 1940s. The dam is an impressive structure that stands at 142 feet tall and 1,026 feet long, and its reservoir covers more than 22,000 acres. The primary purpose of the dam was to control flooding in the area and to provide hydroelectric power. Today, Lake Norfork is a popular destination for fishing, boating, and other recreational activities, and it is located about two hours from the state capital, Little Rock. The clear, deep waters of the lake provide excellent opportunities for anglers to catch a variety of fish species, including largemouth bass, catfish, and crappie. With its scenic beauty, abundant recreational opportunities, and convenient location, Lake Norfork and the Norfork Dam are important landmarks in the region.
