This lake is great for boating, fishing, and diving. There are usually lots of houseboats floating around. It has crystal clear water and is very peaceful. Definitely a lake to visit if you're looking for a relaxing getaway!

The lake was wonderful, other boaters were respectful and the water was perfect. We went on an off week so there was maybe 4-5 other boats on the lake. The lowest level we found was about 30 feet. There is also an island with a beach that I hear is popular although we did not venture the 8 miles to... More

We've been going for over 20 years now, beautiful lake ! Very clear, great fishing and boating. No boat traffic even on holidays, all the parks are well maintained for easy hook up of travel trailers or just use a tent.

This was our second visit to Bull Shoals State Park. The campsites are very nice with 50amp and sewer and most are pretty level. The visitor's center is a wonderful first stop with an abundance of information about the area and offering special programs. We took the lake cruise and really enjoyed the 2+ hr trip which included viewing the... More

I went over here to go camping for a couple days while visiting some family in the near area. I found the campgrounds clean, well stocked and generally speaking a good time.

Great fishing for trout and walleyes in a scenic setting. Night fishing for walleyes is fine and the trout fishing in the tail waters is beyond wonderful. Air port for fly in near Gaston's Resort. Guided trout fishing or you can wade some areas of the White Tail waters.

Bull Shoals Lake is a crystal clear, beautiful lake located in the hills of the Ozarks. It is a Corp of Engineers Lake so there is very little building right on the lake which gives it a very clean, undeveloped appearance from the water. The fishing can be great at times but is very different because of the very clear... More

We spend a lot of time on Bull Shoals Lake. We are usually on a houseboat or pontoon. The water is so peaceful and clear. No pollution here! We like to go during the week when there are less people. We even like the weather out there in early Oct. or early May. This is a great place for skiing,... More
