Access Truman Lake at one of the park's two paved boat-launching ramps. A two-lane boat ramp located in the campground (open March through November) is for use by campers only, and a four-lane boat ramp (open year-round) is available to the public near the large parking lot near the marina, which offers ample space for cars, trucks and boat trailers. There are no launch fees or motor restrictions in the state park.

You can rent a variety of boats at the park's marina.

Kayak Rentals:

Kayaks can be rented from Memorial Day to Labor Day at the park office Monday through Thursday and at the fee booth Friday through Sunday. Kayaks must remain in the campground boat ramp cove; they cannot be taken into the open water of Truman Lake.
