WARSAW, Mo. — The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers pulled courtesy docks at Corps managed boat ramps on Truman Lake.

To reduce maintenance cost and to alleviate potential damage from icy conditions, courtesy docks have been pulled from the water at Truman Lake Corps of Engineers boat ramps during the Months of December and January.  With this reductions in amenities offered, no day use fees will be collected during this timeframe.

This action alleviates the need to monitor dock conditions during fluctuating lake levels and allows limited staff to concentrate on backlogged maintenance items. Project personnel plan to install courtesy docks at customary locations on or after February 1, 2019, or as lake conditions permit.

Alternative launch locations with courtesy docks:

Osage Bluff Marina: floating courtesy dock. Free.

Sterett Creek Marina: 2 courtesy docks. $5 fee

Bucksaw Marina: 2 courtesy docks. Free.

State Park Marina: 2 courtesy docks. Free.


Available options may change due to marina operations or weather conditions.

We would like to work with volunteers, partners or local entities to maintain these facilities throughout the year or during these months. If you or your group would be interested in partnering please contact Harry.S.Truman@usace.army.mil or 660-438-7317 extension 1.
