Shepherd of the Hills Fish Hatchery

Shepherd of the Hills Fish Hatchery is located immediately below the Table Rock Dam on Lake Taneycomo. They raise the trout that are released into the lake that flows past Rockaway Beach. It is an interesting attraction to visit for young and old alike. Fish food can be found in quarter vendors so guests can feed the fish.

The Ralph Foster Museum located at the College of the Ozarks is a fascinating place to spend about a half a day. It is just off the Hwy 65 and Hollister exit.

Fishing and Scenery

Rockaway Beach Fishing Dock - (and Island)

The Rockaway Beach Fishing Island and Dock is located only 2 blocks from our "Fishing Cabins" and 3 blocks from the cabins at Cross Timbers. Most of the trout you see on our website have been caught right there! It is open to the public, has parking, a playground and restrooms nearby. There is a fish cleaning station on the dock.

Empire Park - (above Powersite Dam)

Empire Park is located downstream of Rockaway Beach about 8-10 miles. To get there, drive to Forsyth and take a right at the Court House stop light. It is the very end of Lake Taneycomo and is still primarily a trout fishing area. There are fishing docks, boat ramps handicapped accessible fishing areas, public restrooms and plenty of parking.

Shadow Rock Park and Swan Creek

Shadow Rock Park at Forsyth is where Swan Creek and Bull Shoals Lake come together. It is the last stream flowing into Bull Shoals at the upper end of the lake before encountering the Powersite Dam. This makes it a hot spot for fish swimming up-stream and is famous for huge schools of spawning White Bass in the Spring. It's about 10 minutes from the cabins just on the other side of Forsyth.

Powersite Dam

Powersite Dam is located downstream of Rockaway Beach about 8-10 miles. To get there, drive to Forsyth and take a right at the Court House stop light. It is the beginning of Bull Shoals Lake and is home to many species of fish, from all forms of Bass, Crappie, Walleye and more. The Department of Conservation is also now stocking Stripped Bass in the Lake. There are boat ramps located about 1 mile down stream.
