Clearwater Lake

Clearwater Lake Southern Missouri Fishing

Clearwater Lake is a reservoir on the Black River six miles from Piedmont, Missouri. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers uses Clearwater for flood control in the White and lower Mississippi River Basins. 

Whether it is boating, swimming, water skiing, camping, picnicking, sightseeing, hunting, or fishing, Clearwater Lake is a great area to explore.  The absence of private boat docks allows those seeking a primitive lake permitting boaters freedom to find a bit of unspoiled shoreline and go ashore nearly anywhere on the lake. Boating enthusiasts and skiers have acres of smooth, deep water for sport.

Swimming areas are available in four of Clearwater’s parks. Swim beaches are located at Piedmont Park, Bluff View, Webb Creek and Highway K Park. Campers and picnickers alike can enjoy the natural splendor of our parks. Camping is offered at all five of our parks. Numerous facilities, including grills, fireplaces, tables, group shelters, showers and water wells are located throughout the parks.
