If you love fishing and boating, then a visit to Table Rock Lake may belong on your bucket list. The lake was formed when the White River was dammed in 1958 to provide flood control and supply hydroelectric power to surrounding towns and cities. Fishing is the prime activity; largemouth, and smallmouth bass are plentiful, as well as crappie, walleye, and catfish. The lake has more than 850 miles of shoreline, and with numerous islands, inlets, and fingers off the main channels, seclusion is easy to find.
The warmest months are July and August, peak season, with highs in the upper-80s F and lows in the mid-60s F. The mild-weather shoulder seasons of September/ October and May/June are less crowded. The fall season offers spectacular scenery with the beautiful Ozark hills being ablaze with color as the leaves change. Water skiing and other water sports are enjoyed heavily in our well protected area of the lake. Because of the high bluffs and relatively narrow geography on this part of the lake, often our water will be glass still, lending itself to outstanding water skiing
You'll find the full gamut of boats on the lake, from bowriders and bass boats all the way up to large houseboats and pontoons. Much of the lake is in the densely wooden region of the Ozarks, so if you fancy a day off the boat, there are plenty of hiking trails to explore in the surrounding countryside. There's a large sandy beach with a roped-off area for swimming at Moonshine Beach, at the northern end of the lake. Many of the shoreside campgrounds and recreational areas also have sandy beaches, which are ideal for family members who want a day off from boating.
