FIrst trip to this lake. Loved the area with lots of choices to fish and enjoy the lake. Loved the bridge across the lake near Clinton. Lots of things to do nearby as well. Beautiful lake to visit in Missouri!

Mylate father and I were among the first to use the marina and motel. As a journalist and outdoor writer, I've traveled extensively. The Reynolds Family has always treated me like family. Emily and Jason and crew members, Tommy and Wally, are honest, attentive and worthy of your repeat business!

Love this lake. From swimming to just boat riding. Great fishing, Blue cats, hybrid bass,crappie, bass. The lake has a lot of standing timber. The lake is a flood control lake. During heavy rains in northern Mo. the lake can fluctuate a lot.

Most people come to the many areas on and around Truman Lake to fish and relax. It's a great place for both, but my friends and I come to look for birds. Shorebirds, waterfowl, nesting warblers, viireos, tanagers, etc., may be found at many places around the lake, and the Missouri Department of Conservation access points make it easy to see places lakeside...usually. In this summer of 2019 the normally 50,000 acre lake is at flood stage, covering 200,000 acres. Many parts are inaccessible. Still, birding and sightseeing around Truman Lake is rewarding. If you're planning to visit several points by land, even at normal pool level many access points are far apart by gravel roads that reach points along this sprawling lake created by damming river and creeks.

We did live close to Truman but moved about a hundred miles away. My husband really misses it. He goes back several time a year. We love it.
