The 1,440-acre Harry S Truman State Park, located on the peninsula that juts into the lake, opened in 1983. Park planners took advantage of a superb location to create one of Missouri's finest reservoir-based parks. Surrounded by water on three sides, the park offers opportunities for fishing, boating, swimming and water skiing, and is ideal for camping, picnicking and nature study.

There are 201 campsites scattered throughout five campgrounds in the State Park, including 100 with electrical hookups. Facilities in the campgrounds include a dumping station, hot showers, modern restrooms and laundry facilities. Nearby, a two-lane boat ramp offers access to the lake. For those interested in cooling off, the sand beach has a swimming access complete with changehouses and restrooms.

On the eastern end of the park, visitors can relax at one of many shaded day-use picnic sites or the open shelter. Water enthusiasts will enjoy the sand beach on the section of the lake set aside for swimming, as well as boat rentals and supplies at the fully equipped marina.
