Things To Do


 A full service marina with a hard surfaced public boat launch is available on Bull Shoals Lake. If you don’t want to bring your own craft the marina rents ski boats, bass boats, pontoon boats, deck boats, and fishing boats. They also rent everything you need for water toys such as skis, tubes, wakeboards, kneeboards, and Wave Runners. A fully certified P.A.D.I. scuba shop and store keeps divers well supplied with air and rental scuba equipment. Several tackle shops close by provide licenses and any tackle or bait you can think of for pursuing all species of local sport fish. We can help arrange a lake fishing trip with area professional guides.


The White River tail water below Bull Shoals Dam is home to plentiful rainbow, brown, cutthroat, and even a few brook trout. A day’s catch of 30 to 60 rainbows about 13 inches long is normal. Brown trout in the 2 to 4 pound size are also common catches. You can fish from the bank, but the best way to catch a lot of trout is by going out in a John Boat (a special river boat) with a local guide. There are several guides who conduct bait, spin, and fly-fishing trips on the river, both half-day or full day trips. You can also rent your own John boat and motor at a number of close-by trout docks on the river.


Drive 30 minutes to 3 hours away from Brass Door and you can enjoy the Ozark Upland scenery on your way to National and State Parks, hiking, canoeing, horseback riding, caverns, one of the largest trout hatcheries in the United States, the Ozark Folk Center, crafts and antique stores, museums, historic sites, and many other activities.
