Activities and Amenities
The park is a departure point for the Peel Ferry, which connects Highway 125 from Arkansas to Missouri. Peel Ferry is Arkansas' last remaining free ferry. It runs year-round and saves drivers a 50-mile journey around the lake.
Blue Shoals Lake spans more than 71,000 acres across the northern edge of Arkansas and the southern edge of Missouri. The lake was created in 1951 with the completion of the massive concrete dam, Blue Shoals Dam.
The lake is surrounded by dense forest along the rolling foothills of the Arkansas Ozarks.
The surplus of water activities keep visitors entertained for many days of vacation. Hiking and birding are also rewarding pastimes here.
The 39 campsites are equipped with electric hookups, drinking water and showers. The site has a designated swimming area and marina.
Groups of up to 50 can reserve the group picnic shelter, which is beside the playground.
Visit the Bull Shoals-White River State Park and explore its two hiking trails: the Big Bluff Trail and the Lakeside Trail. Consider a ferry ride to explore scenic drives on the Missouri side of the lake.
