About Damsite

Visitors head to Damsite on Pomme de Terre Lake for days of enjoyable boating, fishing and swimming. Just as the name implies, Damsite Park is just above the dam, at the confluence of Lindley Creek and the Pomme de Terre River.

The lake is named for the river that feeds it. The phrase "Pomme de Terre" is French for potato or "apple of the earth." Most likely, the river was named by early French trappers and fur traders when they discovered plants resembling potatoes on the riverbanks.

Recreation

Excellent fishing is found at the lake, which boasts one of the best catch ratios in the country. Each fall the lake is stocked with muskie, but crappie, largemouth and white bass are also found in abundance.

Every year on Fourth of July holiday weekend, a fireworks display takes place over the dam.

Facilities

Damsite Park has 80 sites with electric hookups and 22 non-electric sites. Amenities include a dump station, two shower houses, two coin operated laundry machines, and a playground.

Natural Features

Pomme de Terre Lake sits in the rolling Ozark hills, with 7,790-acres of sparkling surface area and 113 miles of shoreline.

Nearby Attractions

One of the best dirt tracks in the country is right down the road or enjoy a round of golf at the nearby golf course. There are also multiple trails located around this part of the lake.

Overall good!

Nice park! Spaces are tight but laid out nicely. Not great for walking dogs, very little grass for each campsite. Would stay again!
