Frequently Asked Questions
Can I buy lakefront property on Lake Ouachita?
No. The land surrounding Lake Ouachita is part of the Ouachita National Forest. Lake Ouachita’s shoreline is protected and managed by the US Army Corps of Engineers, Vicksburg District.
Part of what makes Lake Ouachita so special is the lack of houses crowding the shoreline. When you get out onto the lake and look back toward the shoreline here, you won’t see a string of houses and boat docks – you’ll see a beautiful natural shoreline with abundant wildlife. The lack of homes along Lake Ouachita’s shoreline not only keeps down visual pollution but also helps keep the water clean. Lake Ouachita is well known as one of the cleanest lakes in the country.
