Great place for family water sports fun! We love to fish, kayak, and just motor around on the lake. We enjoy camping at the different parks. Not alot to do other the lake.

Entire lake is mismanaged by everyone concerned, Fishing sucks, the marinas suck, and the only redeeming factor is Fred's Fish House in Mountain Home. Kept boat there at Panterbay Marina for four years and have never looked back----

Great Fishing Lake and great for family fun. Stay at this resort which offers clean, updated cabins right on the lake. Families can go boating, hiking and water skiing. Fisherman have a great variety of fish to catch.
