In the novel Shepherd of the Hills, author Harold Bell Wright wrote, "When God looked upon th’ work of his hands and called it good, he was sure alookin at this here Ozark Country..."
Today, if Mr. Wright could see the Ozarks, he would be awed and impressed with how the beautiful Ozark Mountains have made an inspiring home for Table Rock Lake and Dam.
Winding down through the valleys and hollows of the Ozark Mountains, from Branson, Missouri to Eureka Springs, Arkansas, Table Rock Lake reaches out for your attention with water as blue as the sky.
Designed, built and operated by the U. S. Army Corps of Engineers, Table Rock Dam and Lake has become a paradise for boaters, scuba divers, campers and fishermen alike. Camping enthusiasts are treated to thirteen Corps of Engineers operated campgrounds located adjacent to Table Rock Lake. Full service marinas operate on Table Rock Lake at various locations to provide service and convenience to boaters. Over 100 resorts are located adjacent to Table Rock Lake and provide visitors with numerous water-related activities. For those visitors who do not want to operate a boat but still wanting to experience the beauty of the area from the water, five commercial boat cruises or rides operate on Table Rock Lake.
Nature enthusiasts and hunters enjoy using the public land surrounding Table Rock Lake which includes portions of the Mark Twain National Forest.
