About Lost Bridge Marina
Lost Bridge Marina is now owned by the Humphreys family, who have been coming to Beaver Lake since 1967. The Humphreys family is a large one, but you'll see our friendly staff most. The family started their lake outings camping at the Lost Bridge camp grounds. A few years later they decided to give renting houseboats a try and were instantly hooked.

The Story of the Lost Bridge
In the early days in the Ozarks, life was difficult at best. The terrain was very rugged, the population was small and money was hard to come by. Under these handicaps, the people of Benton County tried to build a good road connecting the towns of Garfield and Eureka Springs. To do this, they had to build a concrete bridge to cross the White River. This was the most expensive part of the project, so it was built first.
The bridge was completed in the summer of 1929. However the "Great Depression" hit that winter and there was no money left to complete the road. For five years the fine concrete bridge spanned the river, but there were no road on either side. The "lost bridge" stood there. isolated, until 1934. Approaches were built and the road was completed. On May 7, 1943 a flood came destroyed the bridge. After the water receeded, a concrete low-water crossing was built near the original bridge. Then, in 1964 Beaver Lake was built, and both bridges are now under water.
