• Surface Area: 102 Acres
Lake Wedington is a 102-acre lake located amid a lush hardwood forest, and the 424-acre Lake Wedington Recreation Area. Born out of the Depression and completed in 1938 by that era's Works Progress Administration (WPA), there are 18 family-unit campsites with showers at the restroom facility and 19 family-unit picnicking sites. Overnight guests can stay in any of the six refurbished cabins built by the WPA. The air-conditioned cabins have fully equipped kitchenettes and sleep from three to six persons. Playgrounds, swimming, volleyball courts, horseshoes and hiking are available March through November. A seven-mile hiking trail is open year-round. Other amenities include a lodge, pavilion, boat launching ramp, boathouse and overnight group camp. On the National Register of Historic Places, it is one of northwest Arkansas's best-kept recreational secrets. The Forest Service manages the 16,000-acre Wedington unit of the million-acre Ozark National Forest through its Boston Mountain Ranger District.

The Wedington unit has also been established as a Cooperative Wildlife Management Area, with the Forest Service and Arkansas Game and Fish Commission entering into a partnership to improve area wildlife habitat. Game and Fish and the Forest Service work together to control land use and give wildlife special designation, restricting some hunting.
