We stopped by Bull Shoals Dam on the way out, it was morning & can we say beautiful! Love how the fog was rolling down below on white river. It sure was gorgeous! Don't miss a drive over in the morning to see the beauty!

This is a neat place to visit. It separates Bull Shoals Reservoir from the White River. Beautiful view.

I have always wanted to take a tour of the dam, but it never seemed to work out for us. I was glad when we finally were able to make reservations. It was interesting to see the inner workings of the dam. They also tell you about the history and power generation. Very educational and fun.

Nice view of the Bull Shaols Lake and the White River. New visitors center. Used to be the 3rd largest dam in the US when it was built about 65 years ago. If you enjoy watersports, you will enjoy this lake. Good fishing in the lake or on the river.

If you're in the area this is a must see. Lake is very full now and they're discharging water into the White River. Great views and history at the Information Center. They run a movie every 30 minutes about the history of Bull Shoals Lake.

We stopped at the Gaston Visitor Center to take in the beautiful views of the dam, Bull Shoals Lake and the White River. The center is interesting and educational for all ages.

We enjoyed visiting the Bull Shoals Dam. It is amazing to look at something and know that it was built without today's modern construction equipment. Take time to drive across it and walk through the Visitors Center.
