Lake Greeson is a reservoir on the Little Missouri River, about 6 miles north of Murfreesboro, Arkansas. Famous for its scenery and recreation, it is surrounded by 15 parks that offer opportunities for camping, fishing, boating, biking, and swimming.
The lake is created by Narrows Dam, named after the area in which it is located, "The Narrows". Lake Greeson is named after developer Martin White Greeson. The lake also contains Daisy State Park.

Lake Greeson provides 45 miles of walking, nature, and cycling trails that are there for public use. At the Parker Creek Recreational Area there is a nature walk trail that lets you experience the nature and beauty around an old Cinnabar Mine. The Cinnabar Mine was a popular mine during the 1930s and 40's before the lake was made in 1950. The Bear Creek Cycle Trail allows riders to experience 31 miles (50 km) of breathtaking beauty around the lake. The trail takes riders across pine covered forest and natural rolling hills.
Lake Greeson is next to the small town of Murfreesboro, which is next to the Crater of Diamonds State Park. The area around Murfreesboro is full of recreational areas.
Martin White Greeson who was born on November 7, 1866 was the main developer of Lake Greeson. Lake Greeson was basically made to prevent flooding of the Little Missouri River. Construction on the lake began in April 1947, but the first bucket of concrete wasn't poured until June 1948. The lake was then finished in 1950 and dedicated in 1951.
