About this Location

There is just something about Truman Lake’s quiet and uncrowded water and land that makes for relaxing and enjoying the unsurpassed beauty – but it also offers exceptional outdoor recreational opportunities.

Truman Lake is the largest flood control lake in the state of Missouri. At normal pool the lake covers 56,000 acres, but when the pool is at the top of flood control the number of acres increases to 200,000, spreading into portions of four counties: Benton, Henry, Hickory and St. Clair.

Truman Lake and the managed Army Corp of Engineers land surrounding Truman encompasses 259 square miles of land and water that is great for boating, fishing, hunting, camping, hiking/biking and just exploring nature at its finest.
