Overview

Overview

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

Visitors enjoy fishing, hunting and boating.

Natural Features:

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

Wildlife is abundant in and around Talley Bend. Whitetail deer, turkey, hummingbirds, hawks and ospreys are commonly seen. Bald eagles can be viewed during the winter months.

Recreation:

Talley Bend 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.

A playground and sandy beach make the area perfect for families.

Facilities:

This large, year-round campground offers 109 sites with 30-amp electric hookups, along with five primitive sites without hookups. Amenities include flush and pit toilets, showers, drinking water, laundry facilities, a dump station and boat ramp.

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.
