Highly recommended for a lake get away
Aug 2020
Given the fact of the virus hitting all over we tried something new. We went to Arkansas! Bull Shoals Lake to be exact. The customer service was the sweetest and the sunsets were breathtaking. Not only were we surprised by such a family oriented place but the staff made you feel like you were visiting a home away from home. The weather was unpredictable but the sunsets after a storm... WOW. well worth it. I was skeptical when I read reviews about the not so nice customers and the dirtiness of the place.. but you obviously can’t believe everything you read. I’m not sure where THOSE bathrooms were but these are the ones we were provided.
I would highly recommend this place for a small getaway to anyone! My family will be coming back next year! Thank you guys so much.

Don't waste your money
Aug 2020
Rented houseboat August 3-10 - pictures on the website look good, the boat was in horrible condition. It had a sign on the sliding door that the boat had been sanitized - it was not even remotely clean, let alone sanitized. The welding on the exterior pulls on the boat was so rusted my husband almost fell off when he reached out to grab it getting in from the water. The engine of the boat was SO sluggish and only a few outlets worked. Would really like to contact someone to check them out - like health department - ? Not sure who.
Don't make the mistake we did!

Terribly trashed

Bull shoals boat dock used to be a awesome place to visit. Ever since John passed, it has gone downhill at a rapid rate. I posted some pictures of the bathrooms they expect their customers to use.

Fun time on the lake. Boats can use some maintenance.
Jul 2020
Had good interaction through email to find out availability of a pontoon boat. Rented a pontoon for the afternoon. Process getting it checked out was slow and clearly the staff was overwhelmed as it took almost 30 minutes after our check in time to start getting the boat out. Despite Arkansas mask mandate, only saw 1-2 employees wearing them (most important indoors and wasn't really being done). The boat we received was ok. Ran well although a few times the motor took a couple of cranks to start. The boat did need maintenance (ripped seats with moldy cushions, fuel gauge that was flipping all over the place, speedometer didn't work). Docking the boat took a bit and the staff seemed to be having troubles with charging all customers for their gas as some were being charged and others weren't.

Overall, our family had a fun time on Bull Shoals Lake and with the boat. The area is truly beautiful and the lake was very calm and clear. Some of the older staff were very friendly. Would have been 5 stars with a better maintained boat and being a little more efficient.

Nice Place

This is a nice marina that houses a number of boats. It appears to be well maintained. It's a relaxing activity while you're camping to be along the water and admire the boats.

Bull Shoals boat dock
Jul 2019 • Family
Docks were flooded while there , so parking was very limited. Number placement on dock slips were all over the place. We used dock 6 and numbers skipped from 200’s to 600’s. Some have 2 numbers on one slip. Confusing. Staff had to shuttle people to their boat. No wake doesn’t mean anything to staff when they’re shuttling people. They just motor right on by. People at marina not real friendly. But it was convenient for lake. Great store items to buy there. Has scuba supplies and fishing stuff too. Not as nice as Lakeview Marina They always knocks down spider webs and keeps their docks real nice.

Wonderful Day on the Lake
Jul 2019 • Family
We rented a pontoon for the day and everyone had a great time. The boat was large enough to accommodate my party of 12. Staff was wonderful about getting things set up and teaching us the particulars about the boat. Loved the top deck and the slide.

Guided Fishing Trip
Apr 2019 • Family
This was our first trip to Arkansas for a fishing adventure. We wanted to try something new and different than the same old Florida vacation. I did as much research about the area as I could and found Bull Shoals Lake Boat Dock. We arrived on Saturday afternoon and booked a trip for all day Monday. We were greeted at the dock by Mr. James Peveto a licensed guide for Bull Shoals Lake and the White River. My son and I grabbed our gear and off we went to our first fishing spot. Guess what the trolling motor quit working! We all giggled a bit and headed back to the dock to pick up another boat. We jumped into a brand new Vexus bass boat with all the bells and whistles and off we went. James is very knowledgeable about fishing and showed us the lures needed and how to work them, we were catching fish in no time! He has a wonderful personality and kept us entertained for the day. James showed us many of his favorite places so we could come back later in the week with our own boat and feel confident about catching fish. The rest of the week was awesome.... we caught many bass, walleye and crappies all thanks to James and the Bull Shoals Lake Boat Dock. We'll certainly be back for another trip and next time James promised us the trip of a lifetime fishing for trout on the White River. We can't wait to come back! I highly recommend the professionals at Bull shoals Lake Boat Dock.

Rented A Nice Pontoon Boat For The Day
Sep 2018 • Friends
Our party of four rented a 25 foot pontoon boat equipped with a 150 hp Yamaha outboard from BSLBD. The boat was well maintained and the motor ran well. The Bimini top came in handy to shelter us from sporadic showers, and the swim ladder was heavy duty enough to help us older adults climb out of the water easily. Our gas bill to refuel the tank provided the expected sticker shock, but hey, we spent the better part of the day running around the lake sightseeing, taking swim breaks, snorkeling, and picnicking. What a fun day. The staff was friendly and helpful too. We would definitely rent from them again. Check them out. They have all the lake toys and craft you want.

Home away from home.
Aug 2018 • Family
We just rented a boat slip here and look forward to having some beautiful sunny days start and end here. Rent a boat, houseboat, fishing boat or pontoon here and see beautiful blue waters of Bull Shoals! Great dock hands, very friendly and respectful of your gear. Management has been easy to work with.
