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.

We even like the weather out there in early Oct. or early May. This is a great place for skiing,... More

This very large lake is ideal for catching all kinds of freshwater gamefish from bass to crappie and walleye. It's also perfect for water sports and swimming on designated beaches.

Very beautiful lake! The water is very clear and at one point, I could see the different shades of blue with the different depths of water. It made going out on the boat very nice! No choppy water or fish trying to swim by you. Just beware of the current, as our boat kept drifting and we had to reset... More

Great for fishing, water sports, swimming, and boating. I love to take a dip on hot days. The water can get very warm.
