Check out the fabulous new playground that recently opened near the cabins on Lake Leatherwood. Just a few minutes west of town on Hwy 62, at the Lake Leatherwood bridge. Exit to the north and follow pavement to the cabins/lake.

First time visiting, there is construction going on to the park, new playground equipment and it looks like a few cabins are fixing to be built by the looks of the lumber bundles and cleared spots. The dock was clear for me to easily launch my kayak, there was a little wind rippling the water and a few anglers present... More

I bring my kayak and paddle the lake for peace and quiet, and great place to hike trails, feed the geese or have a picnic. Super friendly staff also rents boats. Beautiful.

We loved hiking around Lake Leatherwood. It is a great hike with lots of views of the lake. We also enjoyed the Miner's Rock Trail. The park itself has a brand new playground for the kiddos. Other parts are dated, but with the new playground, I suspect they will make additional updates. If you enjoy hiking, this area is a... More

Went to the park to check out the dam which is a pretty walk through the woods. There are many walking trails to choose from. We were there near the end of the day and started walking the Fishermans trail towards the dam. We were told it was about a mile walk. More like 2 miles. Because of the time... More

A very serene tranquil lake. Great place to take the family. Trail is great, swimming area etc. Watch out for goose poop. Boat rental just like a mountain lake.

This is a nice lake with pretty but not spectacular scenery immediately west of Eureka Springs downtown. Located at end of Leatherwood Road about two miles off Highway 62. Worth an hour or two if visiting Eureka Springs.
