Temperatures ranged from 95 - 103 F. during our two weeks at Bull Shoals-White River State Park. But the discharge into the White River comes from a two hundred foot depth of Bull Shoals lake and is very cool. You could actually feel the coolness in the air down by the river. This swing about 30 yards from the river and shaded by a massive Oak tree was a pleasant place to sit. The cool water also made for good trout fishing.
