The Visitor Centre is very interesting, there is a small gift shop as well as a lot of historical detail regarding the dam and previous inhabitants. The views are spectacular from all vantage points and thoroughly recommend a visit.

Dam is beautiful on both river and lake side. Vistor center view is exceptional. Tour of inside of dam no longer available to the public is unreal.

The Bull Shoals Dam is certainly a sight to see. On one side you have Bull Shoals Lake and the other the White River. The view is spectacular on a sunny summer day. I would recommend this for anyone to see.

Take time to learn about the building of the Dam in the early 50's. It helped bring electricity to many small town's in Arkansas for the first time!!

Nothing majorly spectacular about this dam. You can drive across it, or walk. The road part of the dam is well lit. Looking from downstream, you might miss it at night.

Beautiful! Got up close on the lakeside. We rented a pontoon for the day. Scenery was beautiful and water was refreshing.

You can drive around a turnabout next to the dam. It really has a beautiful view and gives you an idea of how deep the lake actually is.
