Truman Lake is a beautiful CLEAN lake. The 1100 miles of shoreline drew me to live there. There is great fishing and large treeless area for watersports.

Truman Lake is beautiful with lots to do in the spring and summer. We have been there twice. This time it was Nov. so we just drove around to enjoy the view.

Beautiful lake. Fishing was tough the 2nd weekend of October. Good boat ramps are available, Long Shoal Marina on 12737 Steamboat Rd is a great place offering food, drinks, gas is available in the marina.

Had a great time today at the lake. It is very pretty there. We kind of rushed through the visit because we were on our way home. But I look forward to going back and visiting again

Truman Lake is much larger and the water quality is much better than Lake of the Ozarks. The lake is ideal for fishing, water skiing and relaxing. 4th of July fireworks are shot of Truman Dam every year. It is a show that you don't...More
