Yearly Slips NOT Available (Jan 2021)
Written by Scott on January 30th, 2021
We currently have NO SLIPS Available for yearly rental. We are not expecting to have any open as the demand has been overwhelming in the past few years. To our knowledge, we are not expecting any renters to be leaving this winter.

The main walkway to the marina is finally out of the water and usable! However, Bull Shoals is still 19.5 ft above normal. Dropping about 4 inches per day. Boat Launch might be available late October. The end of K Hwy will be the only launch for quite some time.
Current Conditions Aug 6th, 2020

Bull Shoals is still 26.5 ft above normal power pool of 659.00. However, the lake is beautiful with a surface temp of about 82 degrees! Little to no debris on the main lake. Probably won’t see a functional boat launch until late October, but launching off of the end of K Hwy is a good option this week! K Dock Marina still has a temp walkway until the lake reaches 679.00 ft. Fishing is good, not great, but lots of walleye coming in trolling with medium to deep crank baits near the flooded brush and the high bluff points. Purple, Blue & jointed Flicker Shads have been really producing! Deep Diving Bandits as well. Running into some Huge crappie suspended too! Crappie are scattered, but will get better when we drop 20 ft or more. Bass are eating up a Peanut Butter & Jelly Jig on the points and any flooded road beds! 10″ Plum Worm still a great choice right now! Also have seen some really big Flat Head Cats caught on small blue gill and perch! Pray for no big rains. Fishing is really going to be good later this year!
Lake Update – Flooding Conditions May 2020
Written by Scott on May 7th, 2020
Unfortunately we are looking at a very high water situation again this year. The Army Corps has now raised Bull Shoals to 685.00 ft above sea level, setting us at 26 ft above normal. There are NO signs that this will end soon. With the growing season beginning in Arkansas, doubtful we will see much water being released into the White River. Keep in mind as you travel to Bull Shoals that there are very few boat launches that can be accessed. K Hwy is decent option to launch off of the road, but offers limited parking. The marina has a Temporary Walkway in place for slip renters and guests. Please use Extreme Caution when walking. (K Dock Marina is not responsible for accidents or injuries is you choose to navigate the temporary walkway.)
FLOODING CONDITIONS – March 20, 2020

Bull Shoals Lake is now on the rise after major rainfall fell in the area. The boat launch is now under water. The lake is expected to rise for another week, or longer, depending on further rainfall. We will continue to update as conditions change.
Boat Launch is Accessible!
Written by Scott on March 11th, 2020
The boat launch is now accessible. Bull Shoals is almost back to the normal power pool of 659.00 ft above sea level. The lake looks great! Water is clear with almost no debris. Water temp is still a cold 46 to 48 degrees. Just pray for small amounts of rain!
