We loved the lake and plan to return. The staff at the dock is wonderful. We had planned to rent a pontoon boat but after seeing what terrible shape the boat was in we decided against it and booked time with one of their fishing guides instead. That actually turned out to be in a favor because our guide Bob... More

The entire staff went out of their way to make things right for us. Can't say enough good about all of them. Steve , Rick ,Ryan, Cindy and Ashley did more than I would have ever expected to insure our week on the houseboat was as huge success. Genuine people who care and believe that helping people is a way... More

My family has been vacationing in Bull Shoals since the late-1940's, and I have visited off and on for my entire life. The Bull Shoals Lake Boat Dock has grown, but several things about it are still the same as they were in the early 1980's (and that's not a bad thing). Our kids love feeding carp and turtles off...

We use this boat dock every week. The staff is friendly, quick to gas us up and get us going. The store is well stocked.

We really enjoy the fishing on this lake! The scenery is second to none!! The lake is beautiful beyond words. I will fish this lake as often as possible! The dock however needs many upgrades, it's okay, but could be SO much nicer!! They really need to put in the money and work to make BIG improvements, then it would... More

We had a great time on the houseboat we rented from the marina. It was in excellent condition. The staff at the dock helped us load and unload all our stuff on the boat. AMAZING! I don't know how we would have gotten all our stuff on board. They have bait fish at the dock. We did use the scuba... More
