“Great Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2013

Our family went to the dam just to have something to do. We had a wonderful time there. The dam was very fascinating and huge. The welcome center was extremely clean and the staff were very friendly. We enjoyed walking around the dam.

“Bull Shoals Dam”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2013

The Dam itself was great for sight seeing. We were able to see both sides of the dam and surrounding areas. The Visitors Center was excellent! It had a short movie about the history of the dam, lake and river, as well as great exhibits. There was also a great explanation of the wildlife and variety of fish that are available. The Gift Shop was awesome!

“Great View!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 July 2013

Great place for a visit. Lots of fun & educational info inside the James A. Gaston Visitor Center and beautiful view(s) from the observation deck. Had lots of fun using the binoculars in the "bird watching" area too.

“Very Cool”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2013

The dam is great site to see. Make sure to visit the visitor's center right next to it. It will teach you so much about the history and building of the dam and area around it.
