Berry Bend Campground sits on the shores of Harry S. Truman Lake in the hills of western Missouri.

Visitors enjoy fishing, hunting, swimming and boating.

Natural Features:

Truman Lake lies among rolling hills and rocky bluffs. Dense hardwood forests studded with mature pine trees cover the area.


Berry Bend Area is an excellent fishing location. Anglers find crappie, largemouth bass and blue and flathead catfish. Truman Lake is also a popular destination for tournament fishermen.

Several miles of trails are available for hikers and horses within Berry Bend. The West Trail traverses many steep ridges and valleys, while the East Trail is somewhat more level and overlooks the lake in several areas.


This large, year-round campground offers 114 sites with 30-amp electric hookups and 77 primitive sites without hookups. Amenities include flush and pit toilets, showers, drinking water, laundry facilities and a dump station.

A boat ramp, playground and sand beach offer additional recreation opportunities.

Nearby Attractions:

The 950 miles of shoreline around Truman Lake provide plentiful opportunities for fun in the outdoors. Many parks surround the lake, including Harry S. Truman State Park.

The Harry S. Truman Visitor Center sits atop Kaysinger Bluff and provides a spectacular view of the dam and reservoir. Exhibits provide information about the rich history of the Osage River Valley from pre-civilization to modern day. Waterfowl, bald eagles and turkey vultures are commonly seen from the observation deck.
