Welcome to the Missouri Bull Shoals Lake Association Website.
Best Kept Secret in the Mid-West
A Classic Lake Vacation Destination
Remember when you could take a great vacation on a lake, escaping the crowds,
the noise, and the pollution? That vacation joy has disappeared in America'
s lake destinations closer to large metro areas. But here in Ozark County,
Missouri, the Missouri Bull Shoals Lake Country, it's still all yours.
There are no crowds, no traffic lights, no areas of wall to wall tourist attractions, and no huge boats zooming around the lake. Sparkling clean clear water meets 1000 miles of shoreline upon which you'll see very few buildings. Bull Shoals Lake is one of the cleanest lakes in America. The water is crystal clear, perfect for all water activities.
Recreation In The Real Ozarks
Best of all, we're in the REAL Ozark Mountains! That means you'll enjoy panoramic views, forests, wildlife, and clean, clear, fresh air. People come to our area of the Ozarks primarily to recreate in the great outdoors. Recreation opportunities include all water sports, hiking, canoeing, horseback riding, golf, scenic drives, historic sites, hunting, antiquing, and photography.
Fishing & Wildlife
For fishermen we offer a variety of fishing that's hard to beat. Bull Shoals Lake has gained its renown as a Largemouth Bass lake, but it's also a haven for Walleye, Smallmouth Bass, Crappie, Whites, Bluegill, and Catfish. Trout fishing on the North Fork & White River is exceptionally good. The wildlife doesn't stop with the fish as there are more deer than people in Ozark County. You'll see many species of both wildlife and wildflowers. For a look take our Web site photo tours via the links above!
When it comes to accommodations the area has several resorts with clean modern rooms and boat docks. There are no national chains here, just friendly, people-pleasing owners who can make decisions on the spot for you. When you email or phone with questions, you'll get answers straight from the people who run the operations.
