Bull Shoals Lake is open and clean - perfect for family water activities like water-skiing, boating, tubing, wake boarding, fishing or just relaxing in the lake. Our private boat & swim dock is for our guests only and is located in a beautiful secluded cove.

We keep the dock the way we know families who care about their boats like it! We also feed the fish so your little ones can enjoy fishing from the dock.
What makes Trimble Creek Lodge Unique? We, Michael & Lorilee (Lulu), are your Innkeepers during your stay at Trimble Creek Lodge, a resort with the privacy of a Vacation Home, the extras of a Country Inn and the adventure of a 72-acre Lakeside Peninsula. We offer one-of-a-kind vacations for families, reunions and groups of 6-15 in a unique set-up that includes: A spacious Lodge for gathering, three unique and charming, fully equipped cottages with many extras, plus private boat & swim dock, bunkhouse & treehouse.
We personalize for each of our groups. Homemade ice cream, double chocolate brownies, advice for fisherman and help celebrating a special occasion, birthday or anniversary are some of our unique offerings. Spend time together in the Lodge, on the dock or at one of the many porches throughout our resort. Then, spread out for sleeping in our 3 stand-alone cottages plus the bunkhouse. There are porches and patios around the Lodge & East Cottage and a great covered back porch at the Meadow House. We have gas and charcoal grills and provide most everything you need in our well equipped kitchens (waffle irons, crock pots, good knives, rolling pins, great pots, plenty of dishes although due to our wilderness setting, we do not have dishwashers), bathrooms and bedrooms (fluffy towels, high quality sheets we iron by hand for you, beautiful quilts, fresh flowers and American & English soaps). Bring your food and friends and you are set!
Bull Shoals has 1,000 acres of shoreline and the water is beautifully clean. Guest's love swimming off our swim dock and enjoying the seclusion of our beautiful natural location. This lake is so large, you can boat or water ski without getting close to other boats â€“ one of the reasons families love this place.
Every vacation here includes at least one free family style food gift from our Trimble Creek Lodge favorites including our own hand churned ice cream, double chocolate brownies or fabulous crusty fresh baked rolls. Complementary cooking lessons with Lulu are part of the charm of this unique place.
