Table Rock Lake is a beautiful reservoir cradled in the dense and hilly forests of the Ozarks, overlapping the borders of southwestern Missouri and northwestern Arkansas. Table Rock Dam was constructed on the White River in the 1950’s, and the resulting lake is 43,100 surface acres of water, with nearly 800 miles of shoreline. The lake is renowned for excellent boating, fishing, scuba diving, and other water recreation, and it is conveniently close to Branson, Missouri.
Table Rock State Park is located on the northeastern portion of the lake. The park offers personal watercraft, ski and fishing boat rentals, and opportunities for sailing, kayaking, and parasailing. There are hundreds of miles of forested shoreline to explore and opportunities for wildlife viewing. Anglers will encounter a variety of fish including catfish, crappie, and sunfish, but the lake is nationally known for exceptional bass fishing.
The clarity of the water on Table Rock Lake makes it a destination for scuba divers. In the spring, water clarity tends to be greatest with 20 to 40 foot visibility. Attractions include an underwater forest, a sunken boat, large boulders, and nice ledges. A popular diving area is Dewey Short at the Table Rock Dam, where the water is accessible by stairs and there is a gravel beach. Large fish can be viewed underwater here, where there are also nice boulders and ledges. Several dive shops are located on Table Rock Lake.
