Completed in 1970, Lake Ann is Bella Vista’s second lake; it is unique among Bella Vista lakes in its shoreline composition. Only on Lake Ann will you find prominent limestone bluffs and rocky outcrops, which are typical of Ozark topography. These features make for a truly scenic setting. Also typical of the Ozarks, Lake Ann is fed by a spring that erupts in the lake-bed adjacent to the pavilion. The spring provides clear, cold water to that area.
The fish population in Lake Ann is, by the standards of fisheries biologists, well-balanced. Largemouth bass and bluegill are present in ideal ratios, each boasting a healthy population of varying sizes and ages. Lake Ann is also a member favorite for crappie and redear sunfish angling. Members may access these fish from POA facilities at either end of the lake for shoreline angling. Additionally, Lake Ann allows water skiing in its wide, long main bay.
The lake provides annual leased shoreline mooring. Amenities at the boat ramp include a courtesy dock, Lake Ann Pavilion, a fish cleaning station, picnic tables, a grill and a restroom. Amenities at Lake Ann’s dam include a multi-use dock, a fishing-only dock, a fish cleaning station, an automatic fish-feeder, nighttime fishing lights and restrooms.
