Bull Shoals-White River State Park


A dam placed across the White River in 1951 formed 45,400-acre Bull Shoals Lake. With about 1,000 miles of rugged shoreline, it is nationally known for trophy-size bass, crappy, and bream. Besides being an angler's Avalon, this area is stunningly scenic, with roads twisting through rugged mountains where wild rushing streams and rivers, gushing springs, and scenic trails criss-cross the landscape. Many travel this region in spring, when dogwoods bloom, and in fall, when leaves turn burnt orange. At the southern edge of the lake, just below the dam, 732-acre Bull Shoals-White River State Park is a prime fishing spot. Soak up the breathtaking view from the James A. Gaston Visitor Center, where visitors can get a broad overview of the area's natural history and learn about park amenities.
