  • We went here to get a different view of the dam and an up close view of the White River. You can walk right down to the water. Watch out for the concrete sidewalk, it can be slippery.  more »
  • The campground is very nice and clean. Beautiful view of the White River. Bathrooms were very clean. Very nice marina. The store had a great selection of things and staff was friendly.  more »
  • Excellent visitor's center. Lots of good displays on the construction of Bull Shoals Lake and the environment. There is a tower overlook of the dam area. There are several large meeting rooms and a gift shop. There is a campground with a nice hiking trail on the other side of the dam adjacent to the river. There is an interesting spring at the river close to the campground that was caused by the dam's construction.
  • The best camp grounds in the area, their's new site's are awesome, we had site #87 it was perfect for us, so much to see and do or just relax. I highly recommend this place anybody coming this way call ahead and see if you can get a site Reserve before you get here that's how busy this place is.
