Harry S Truman Lake News Releases

Welcome to Harry S. Truman Lake

The Harry S. Truman Visitor Center will open for the 2022 season on April 15. Hours are 9:00 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday through Sunday (and Monday holidays). The center will also be open for Heritage Days the third full weekend in October. The Visitor Center is a great place to get information about recreational opportunities at Truman Lake: camping, boating, fishing, hunting, swimming, hiking, birding and water sports.
On April 4, 2022, the Truman Lake team presented Truman Lake Volunteer Donna Terry with the National Volunteer Award which is sponsored by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the Corps Foundation. Park Ranger Erin Cordrey presented the award to her. Donna has been volunteering with us for a dozen plus years, wearing MANY hats throughout. Most recently, Donna has assisted us with litter pick-up, mulching and weeding flower beds, as well as invasive species management. Earlier this season, and most every season from 2010 to 2021, Donna has been a volunteer visitor attendant at the Harry S. Truman Visitor Center. In that capacity Donna has been our go-to for working countless weekends with high visitation, at times even working alone. Donna doesn’t simply say “hello” to each person who enters the Visitor Center—she takes the time to personally give a warm, heartfelt welcome to every single visitor. She delights in teaching youngsters about water safety by giving out coloring books, iron-ons, cups, etc. Donna also excels in making our Veterans know how much they are appreciated—she personally thanks everyone she encounters with a sincere “Thank you for your service.”
