The clear, blue water of Table Rock Lake winds down through the valleys and hollows of the Ozark Mountains, from Branson, Missouri to Eureka Springs, Arkansas. Designed, built and operated by the U. S. Army Corps of Engineers, Table Rock Lake and Dam has become a paradise for boaters, scuba divers, campers and fishermen alike. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers operates 13 campgrounds adjacent to Table Rock Lake. Full-service marinas, fishing guides and resorts are numerous. Resort rentals, a golf course and other recreational amenities are available at Holiday Island, a planned community located on the edge of the 53,000-acre lake, near Eureka Springs.
Fishing: Fishermen cast year-round on Table Rock Lake for trout, crappie, catfish, and bass. An arm of this huge reservoir extends into Arkansas and provides good fishing for largemouth bass, striped bass, white bass and walleye in the Eureka Springs area.
