I'm Looking for a lake to test drive a boat in. I live in MS and want to meet a guy halfway to drive it. Anybody know where a good lake close to Jonesboro is?

TIA

dont know what part of mississippi you live in, but there is horseshoe lake. it is about 30 minutes from downtown memphis. or, you could even put it in "the ditch" which is off of the mississippi river in downtown memphis. not the cleanest water, but i have ridden there plenty of times.

Depending on where the other guy is, you might want to look into Greers Ferry, Arkansas.

He's coming from SW corner of Missouri. He told me that he would meet me half way, I just gotta find a place to put it in the water.

Matt, have you ever ridden Smith Lake in Alabama just off of 78?

if you want to drive farther for a nicer lake, jefe is right. greers ferry / heber springs is a great lake. or if you want to make him drive further, horseshoe is closer. i would say those 2 lakes are your best bet.

no, i have never gotten over that far. i usually ride at pickwick lake on the tombigbee. pickwick is on the corner of miss, alabama, and tennessee. how is the water on smith lake? good riding?

Gerrs Ferry is the best! the water is clean and deep,you could put in at heber springs, or choctaw
it is a big lake lots of coves (glass)

Lake Norfolk is real nice. Only Lake I've been to in Arkansas though. REAL clean and deep - hardly used - LOTS of glass
