Shangri La Resort

The Shangri La Resort is located on the beautiful lake Ouachita, surrounded by the mountains with the same name. One of the top reasons to go here is because you’ll see one of the cleanest lakes across United States. However, you need some entertainment, so here are the top 5 things to do in Shangri La Resort, Arkansas.


It really doesn’t matter if you travel light or if you bring your own boat. If you travel light you can rent or buy everything you need for fishing right here. Some slips are rented on an overnight basis while others on an yearly basis.

One of the things guests like to do is eating. This should be no wonder considering that the food is freshly and home cooked, including the desserts. Most of the guests have been asking for second servings, thus gaining a few pounds. The view will help you enjoy your meal even more.

Hiking provides the means to burn the extra calories you just had. Since there are mountains around the resort, there is also a forest. This is the best way to get away from any sign of civilisation, unwind, and breathe in some fresh air.

Have a picnic
You can easily find a spot for a picnic while hiking. If you didn’t eat too much and you got hungry again while hiking, it is time to have a snack. The surroundings are astonishing, and it would be a real shame not to take advantage of them while you’re up there.
