WOW what a lake!

This lake is huge and goes every where. Tried to go fishing but I was not able to go this time. Should come back.

We stayed at a cabin on the lake, but we did not fish. There were lots of fishermen at the Swaha Marina, and they were celebrating their 40th year of meeting/fishing this lake. So that means they must catch fish. It seems to be connected to the Little Missouri River, and we were told there were no stumps in the... More

I was here several times as a child. That was many years ago. The water was clear and as smooth as glass most of the time. Sheltered in the surrounding hills and as beautiful a place as I've seen. I water skied then as a very young boy. Many warm memories of Lake Greeson. I'll plan with my family to... More

Beautiful area and seemed to have a lot of family activities. I wish we would have planned to spend more time there.

We rented a pontoon boat from the SWAHA marina and spent about five hours cruising around the lake. It is really pretty. The lake is extremely well marked with buoys and mile markers. It's clean too.

Lake Greeson is only eight to 10 miles north of Murfreesboro, but it seems like it is in the middle of nowhere. The lake is secluded, quiet and peaceful. The water is blue and clear and just perfect for family outings. Upon our arrival, my wife and I drove over to where the dam is located and marveled at the... More

The lake is a beautiful deep-water lake with smooth water and great scenery. We stayed at Swaha Lodge and enjoyed three full days on the lake fishing, tubing and knee-boarding. It felt like we had the lake to ourselves because is just isn't a busy lake. We will definitely be back ... hopefully very soon!

It's a small clean deep water lake nestled in the hills of southwest Arkansas. I grew up on this lake so I'm partial but it you are looking for a peaceful "get a way" on the water where you can still find an empty cove on the weekend, this is the place. I also like the fact that you don't... More
