Welcome to Bull Shoals Lake

Come visit the South Shore of Bull Shoals Lake in the beautiful Arkansas Ozark Mountains!

Our region lies along the southern shore of Bull Shoals Lake. Arkansas’ largest lake covers over 70,000 acres and has over 1,000 miles of shoreline. The lake was formed in the early 1950's when massive Bull Shoals Dam was built to help control White River basin flooding and to generate electricity.

Outdoor adventurists, water enthusiasts, and casual vacationists looking to soak in the quiet, unrestricted nature will find what they're looking for in the South Shore region. Aquaholics enjoy the clean, open lake for swimming, skiing, and boating. Anglers relish the lake's abundance of bass, catfish, crappie, and bream. The world-famous White River also runs through the area, drawing anglers for its trophy trout.
