Bull Shoals State Park Gets a New Name

Arkansas' popular camping and fishing state park in north central Arkansas near Lakeview has a new name. Bull Shoals State Park is now officially named Bull Shoals-White River State Park. Since this park offers visitors access to one of the nation's finest fishing and boating combinations, the renowned White River and Bull Shoals Lake, the State Parks, Recreation and Travel Commission felt the park should recognize both these waters in its name.

One of mid-America's premier trout streams, the White River is famous for record rainbow and brown trout. A dam on the river forms 45,440-acre Bull Shoals Lake, popular for its lunker bass, crappie, catfish and trout fishing. Situated below the dam, Bull Shoals-White River State Park stretches along both the lakeshore and riverside.

It's a new name for this state park, but it's the same spectacular setting in the scenic Ozark Mountains where the White River and Bull Shoals Lake meet at Bull Shoals Dam. Come discover why this state park has long been an Arkansas favorite.
