Welcome to Harry S. Truman Lake

As our recreation areas begin to reopen we want to remind you that we need your help during these trying times.
As we implement a phased reopening of campsites and recreation areas closed due to COVID-19, a complete list of recreation area status updates can be found online at: www.nwk.usace.army.mil/Locations/District-Lakes/Recreation-Area-Status.
Follow CDC guidelines, even when outdoors. We are not staffed to maintain/clean lake & park areas. Be cautious about touching anything. Sanitize and wash often. Practice social distancing.
NOTICE: The extension of area closures through June 1 is to ensure the safety of the visiting public, employees, contractors, and volunteers. This includes all Corps managed campgrounds, group shelters, and Bledsoe Ferry Park. During this difficult time, we encourage you to explore the other 55,000 acres of water and over 100,000 acres of land surrounding Truman Lake. The Corps boat ramps will remain open; however, restroom facilities and courtesy docks may not be available for use. No fees will be collected during this time.
We are taking precautions and have postponed opening of our Visitor Center effective March 13, 2020. We will continue to monitor the situation and will provide timely updates regarding other potential facility closures at our lakes on our websites and/or social sites.
