Go in the spring and summer to really enjoy this lake.

Truman Lake is beautiful with lots to do in the spring and summer. We have been there twice. This time it was Nov. so we just drove around to enjoy the view.

Beautiful lake. Fishing was tough the 2nd weekend of October. Good boat ramps are available, Long Shoal Marina on 12737 Steamboat Rd is a great place offering food, drinks, gas is available in the marina.

Had a great time today at the lake. It is very pretty there. We kind of rushed through the visit because we were on our way home. But I look forward to going back and visiting again

Truman Lake State Park, is a beautiful setting, with some outstanding fishing and camping areas, but please check for e coli levels, in the summer, the swim area is poorly marked, we discovered it after our 8 grandkids were in the water....

I have either lived by this lake or visited since it was created. This is the largest lake in Missouri & one of the best crappie fishing lakes in the nation. It also has great whitetail deer hunting in the fall. If you like to hunt, fish or just be outdoors & on the water it is hard to beat... More

Truman Lake is much larger and the water quality is much better than Lake of the Ozarks. The lake is ideal for fishing, water skiing and relaxing. 4th of July fireworks are shot of Truman Dam every year. It is a show that you don't want to miss!

The water was super warm, even in June. Barely caught any fish, but the white bass were schooling in the morning and evening.

Mostly can enjoy fishing, swimming & relaxation. Say "mostly" because beaches seem frequently closed after rains. Really enjoy area for short getaways - convenient, always clean & staff/hosts friendly & helpful.
