“Tours are neat”
Reviewed January 30, 2012

The dam is one of the oldest in Missouri and in recent years all of the flood gates have had to be opened at one time or another. It's quite a site to see, but not if you are downstream!

Very cool to look at the engineering and even better when they have the flood gates open

“Now giving tours”
Reviewed January 16, 2012

This has a fascinating history. It is worth going to see. If your kids are all 6 or older then you can take a tour inside the dam. Next to the dam is a fish hatchery so you can visit it while you are there.

“A Sight To See”
Reviewed August 14, 2011

After the Fish Hatchery we walked over to Table Rock Dam. None of the gates were opened but it was truly a massive structure! The view from the road on top of the dam is great as well! If the water was pouring out it would make some cool pictures. The dam has history too and there's tours that you can take to learn about the dam. When you visit Branson, visit Table Rock Dam!

“One of the great free things in town.”
Reviewed May 30, 2011

Being originally from a town that borders an ocean, I like to head down to the base of this damn just before large storms and listen to the "waves" and feel the mist created by the water release. It's calm and wonderful and on the right night the structure looks amazing.
