The Boston Mountain Ranger District is seeking a Campground Host at Shores Lake Recreation Area, which is situated in the heart of the Boston Mountain Range of the Ozark Mountains. The surrounding forest is a mix of hardwoods and pine with numerous streams and small waterfalls. Shores Lake Recreation Area offers an 82-acre lake with a fully accessible bathroom facility with ramps for the physically challenged. The fishing piers were designed with wheelchair use in mind. Underwater structures were built to attract fish to the fishing piers. The pavilion is also fully accessible and is available by reservation. Construction of the dam at Shores Lake began in the 1930s by men in a nearby Civilian Conservation Corps camp. The dam was completed in 1958. A cooperative effort between the USDA Forest Service and the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission helped complete the structure. Shores Lake Loop Trail is a showcase of upland hardwoods and shortleaf pine groves. The trail treats hikers to views of waterfalls and wildlife. 18 campsites and 28 family picnicking units. Pavilion for group picnicking by reservation only. Camping trailers allowed, no hook-ups or dumpsite available. Electric sites have 110 outlet & 30 amp outlet access. From Mulberry take Arkansas 215 north for 15 miles, then follow Forest Service Road 1505 for 0.5 mile.
