Get Away From It All & Stay Comfortable
Looking for seclusion? An escape away from the crowds? How about reasonable rates, and a place where you can fish, ski, boat, and swim on Bull Shoals lake? Do you like friendly attention from a staff who is truly happy to see you? Then Fish-Un-Time is for you! We have only 6 housekeeping units which means Un-crowded surroundings, plenty of parking for vehicle and trailers, and oh-so-sweet privacy! Reserve the entire resort for your small group or reunion and you'll be able to enjoy all amenities with only your group.

The Comforts of Home
Fish-Un-Time's small store in the office has area maps, activity pamphlets, and ice. A convenience store located 1-1/2 miles away sells fishing licenses, bait, gas, groceries, and other basic items you might need. If you really want to stock up you have a choice of two super Wal-Mart stores and four full-size grocery stores, all within 25 to 45 minutes away.

I was surprised at how nice the place was. There were deer every night. We also saw fox, rabbits, turtles, and even a roadrunner!  I never slept so good at any other place away from home. ~ Ray Worchester, MA

Fish-Un-Time Resort Grounds
Drive down the forested road to Fish-Un-Time Resort, and you will know you are truly getting away from it all! Fish-Un-Time is on a county-maintained road a short drive from Bull Shoals lake. No other buildings are visible. Our facility is flat with grass lawns shaded by tall hardwoods. We're surrounded on all sides by Ozark hardwood and pine forests. You can enjoy the peace and quiet, or have a great time playing horseshoes or shooting a few baskets on our basketball court without disturbing any neighbors. Our low-traffic road makes a beautiful place to take relaxing evening strolls. We have tetherball for the young ones to enjoy! Fish-Un-Time has a beautiful open deck area where you can see the lake and surrounding Ozark hills. The deck has patio furniture and benches.

We have a lighted covered pavilion with picnic tables large enough to accommodate all our guests, 3 bar-b-que grills, ceiling fans, and a stereo. Our guests frequently gather under the pavilion for cookouts, to play a game, or just to enjoy the forest setting. No need to worry about mosquitoes as they don't thrive well in our area.

Game Room
Enjoy a game of pool, air hockey, foos ball, darts, or cards in our air conditioned / heated game room.

Just like homing pigeons. We’ll be back. ~ Randy & Carmel, Minco, OK

Dish Satellite TV
All units have color TV with remotes on Dish Satellite TV. Get your favorite news channel, the Weather Channel, sports, cartoons, movies and all your favorite Dish channels.

Campfire Area
Gather around our campfire pit in the evening with benches to roast marshmallows or tell stories.

"Dark Sky" is a condition resulting from little or no horizon glow from city lights. Dark Sky is a condition cherished by amateur astronomers because they can see so many more stars than in regions which don't  have Dark Sky. And we have Dark Sky!

road to fish un time resort dock
Road to the boat dock

Our private boat dock is a short drive down the county maintained road from the resort. The dock is covered and lighted. It has a fish cleaning station with running water. Our boat launch gives you a gravel based access to the lake. We have a freezer available to keep your fish catch fresh for you. You can fish and swim off our swim deck in the clean, clear waters of Bull Shoals Lake, which has 45,000 surface acres of water and 740 miles of timbered shoreline.

There are no closed fishing seasons. You can fish Bull Shoals lake day and night year round, but spring and fall are the best for fishing. Largemouth, smallmouth, and Kentucky bass, crappie, walleye, bluegill, catfish, and rainbow trout are common catches. Spear fishing is popular with scuba divers because the underwater visibility is excellent.
