This is a great way to spend the day if you are new to the lake to make the best use of your time on the water. Our guides spend hundreds of days each year fishing and hunting Truman Lake – put their knowledge and expertise to work for you.

Bucksaw Resort and Marina is under new ownership!  Rick and Tonya Gilley purchased the business in August, 2018 with a goal to continue the great family atmosphere already established at Bucksaw.   With a few planned additions and upcoming improvement projects we hope to make Bucksaw Resort and Marina the best choice on Truman Lake.  We are excited to be a part of the community, both Truman Lake and the city of Clinton.



Family fun and plenty of activities for your vacation, family reunion, company retreat or just getting away from it all; our mission is to make your stay an amazing outdoor adventure!  In 2012 Bucksaw won the 2012 Business of the Year award from Clinton, Missouri. We ensure that each and every day we use the same practices that won us that award in 2012.
