Mark Twain Lake Links



Mark Twain Lake offers over 18,600 acres of water for pleasure boating, skiing, and fishing. There are 19 boat ramps around the lake. Six of these are located within highly developed recreation areas that require a day use fee of $5.00. For your convenience, Annual Passes are also available for $40.00 and are valid for one year from the date of purchase. Anyone with an Annual Pass does not have to pay the day use fee each time the boat ramps or beaches are used. These are honored at all Mark Twain Lake boat ramps as well as any other Corps of Engineers boat ramp nationwide. Any person with a Golden Age or Golden Access Passport, or an America the Beautiful Senior or Access Pass is entitled to a 50% discount on all fees.

Please remember that Mark Twain Lake is a flood control reservoir. The water level fluctuates causing high and low water conditions throughout the year. During high water conditions watch for floating debris and submerged hazards. During low water conditions watch for stumps, shallow spots, and exposed islands.
