Beautiful Table Rock Lake winds its way through the scenic Ozark Mountains of Missouri and Arkansas, covering roughly 800 miles of shoreline. The lake finds itself just west of Branson and south of Springfield Missouri.

Table Rock Dam resides on river mile 528.8 of the White River. It began construction in October 1954, finding completion in August of 1958. Construction of the powerhouse and switchyard completed in June 1959, at the same approximate time commercial generation began. The remaining two generation units completed installation in 1961, completing Table Rock construction with an estimated cost of $65,420,000.

Table Rock is one of four multiple purpose projects constructed in the upper White River Basin, along with Norfork Bull Shoals, and Beaver Lake, for the control of floods and the generation of hydro electric power. These lakes have created an alternative purpose, providing excellent recreational activities in the beautiful Ozarks.

Table Rock Lake covers roughly 50,000 acres trough the Ozark Mountains. The lake, being an impoundment of the White River, is mainly fed by water exiting Beaver Dam. The dam maintains an average elevations ranging from 947 to 896 feet above mean sea level.

The lake is surrounded by roughly 800 miles of shoreline, providing excellent boating opportunities. The clear waters of Table Rock have been described as being "smooth as glass" within the many coves, and the many underwater rock bluffs attract considerable numbers of skin divers to the lake.
