You must see the Dam

We were driving around Branson and came upon the road that leads down to the Dam. You are able to drive up close and check things out. Beautiful site.

I loved taking the scenic loops and crossing the Dam. This area is filled with Natural beauty and I have new ideas for all of the fun watersports to participate in during the warmer months. I will also make sure to hit the Branson Belle next trip

It is very interesting if you like things like this. There a park just off the Dam where you can over the river and the back side of the dam.

This is one of the best and most interesting "free" attractions I know of in Branson. After touring the Dewy Short welcome center, go down to the bottom of the dam and get A look at it from the bottom. It gives you A whole new perspective especially when you realize you just drove accross the top of the dam.

We stopped at an overlook point just after crossing the dam. It was serene and quiet place, by the rocks on the bank. There was ample parking place too - a good place for a quiet evening.

We were fascinated by the view of Table Rock Lake and crossed over the dam on our way to the Showboat Dinner Cruise. The lake behind the dam has fantastic camping, touristy interesting. Table Rock Dam is just another dam site to see while visiuting Branson and Holister.

Recently there was a flooding situation in Branson with too much water in the lake and all the spillways were opened to max to let the water levels lower. Imagine standing off from the base of the dam and watching the cascading water fall from the top with a deafening roar. The run off river was boiling as the fast... More

My in laws gave us a quick tour of Branson and we stopped at the dam to take some pictures. It's a really nice area, but not a whole lot to do at the stop. Great for a few pictures!

Other than the fact that you can see over the city of Branson it is just another dam. A large concrete structure, but if you have seen one dam you have pretty much seen them all, I don't think this one is anything different.
