Information about the master plan, the revision process and an electronic comment form is available on the Internet at http://go.usa.gov/3fZsG.

A master plan is the guidance document that describes how the resources of the lake will be managed and provides the vision for how the lake should look in the future. The master plan also provides the basis for the operational management plan, which guides day-to-day management activities of natural resources, and shoreline management plan, which guides private uses of public land and water.
The current Bull Shoals Lake Master Plan was developed more than 30 years ago and is outdated. The master plan revision classifies public lands around the lake based on environmental and socioeconomic considerations, public input, and an evaluation of past, present, and future trends. Several alternative plans have been developed for consideration.
