Lake Bailey is the little lake in Petit Jean State Park. Yep, a lake on top of the mountain, where you usually don't find fishing lakes.
Lake Bailey is 170 acres at normal level, and some anglers complain that lily pads are spreading over much of the surface. Along the edges of these lily pads are where some of the bream catches are being made.
The lake was constructed by the Civilian Conservation Corps, part of its project to build Petit Jean State Park in the 1930s. The lake was named for Arkansas' governor at the time, Carl Bailey.
