“Great place to live and play”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

We have lived here since 2001 and love it. The fishing is great and is available almost year-round. That is if you like the cold!! Plenty of marinas and boat ramps. Plenty of great campgrounds, including Truman State Park. Great place to vacation (and to live.)

“Love the fishing here”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

Watched a man catch a 30lb + catfish...I was a little jealous. :) The catfishing here is awesome right up against the rocks by the spillway of the dam.

“Great view watching eagles”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

The visitor's center located near Warsaw Missouri, above a cliff on Truman Lake is a must see if you are near. It has a lot of history, and interesting exhibits. Fishing below the dam can often find a catfish caught in excess of 40 lbs. There are some nice campgrounds in the area.

“Nice Quiet Lake”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

This is a nice, clean lake where families can enjoy nature and not worry about excessive partying or huge boats that will swamp smaller boats. Majority of the boats you see on this lake are pontoons and bass boats. The fishing on this lake is great and there are several ramps around the lake that only charge a small fee to launch your boat. There are also swimming beaches at the state parks. The nicest swim beach we found was Thibaut Point. This is a Corp of Engineers lake so you won't find much in the way of lakeside lodging unless you bring a tent.
