Panther Bay is conveniently located between the Highway 62 and 101 bridges allowing quick and easy access to several hiking trails, marinas, and boat ramps.
Hiking trails in the area lead nature observers and photographers to picturesque overlooks of the Ozarks. A wide array of fresh water game fish are found in the lake, which is fed by the North Fork River and its tributaries. Bass, walleye, crappie, bream and catfish all make their home here.
The campground offers 15 campsites, all with electric hookups and water available for filling holding tanks.
Panther Bay Marina and several boat ramps are located nearby to provide easy access to the recreational activities that Norfork Lake has to offer.
Norfork Lake covers 22,000 acres with 550 miles of shoreline. Densely wooded hills and hollows surround the lake in the Ozark Mountains. The North Fork River feeds into the lake, and beyond the dam, extends on to connect with the White River.
Hike the Robinson Point National Recreation Trail for wonderful views of the Ozarks.
Just south of the lake, The Ozark National Forest spans 1.2 million acres.
