Water, and plenty of it, is a big part of the appeal in the Osage Lakes Region. Nearly half of the state's impounded waters await visitors here in west-central Missouri. You'll also find generous helpings of history, scenic countryside, state parks and friendly towns. Three major lakes - Truman, Stockton and Pomme de Terre - dominate the landscape. Together, these lakes offer 1,369 miles of undeveloped shoreline and 16 full- service marinas Truman Lake, in the region's center, is one of the Midwest's largest impoundments. For the big picture, stop by the Corps of Engineers visitors center near the dam. Perched high atop a bluff, the center offers a dramatic view of the 55,600-acre reservoir. Bring your fishing gear, because Truman Lake has earned rave reviews for its largemouth bass, catfish and crappie.
