General Information

The Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), Little Rock District, is updating the Table Rock Lake Shoreline Management Plan (SMP). The SMP for Table Rock Lake establishes policy and furnishes guidelines for the protection and preservation of the desirable environmental characteristics of the shoreline while maintaining a balance between public and private shoreline uses.

 

The Table Rock Lake Shoreline Management Plan main objectives are to manage and protect the shoreline, to establish and maintain acceptable fish and wildlife habitat, aesthetic quality and natural environment conditions and to promote the safe and healthful use of the lake and shoreline for recreational purposes by all Americans.

About Table Rock Lake

Table Rock Lake is a man-made lake or reservoir located in southwest Missouri and portions of northwestern Arkansas and was formed in 1958 by construction of a dam on the White River near Branson, MO.  The lake is about 43,000 acres in size with over 745 miles of shoreline.  The lake provides many recreational opportunities, fish and wildlife habitat, and is a popular location for year-round, vacation, and retirement homes.

During high water events and flood periods, Table Rock Lake is operated in conjunction with other lakes in the basin to prevent damage along the White and lower Mississippi Rivers.  The dam also generates hydropower electricity.

SMP Shoreline Allocations

On Table Rock Lake, shoreline may be allocated into one of these categories:

•       Limited Development Areas—Areas where private floating facilities are permitted.

•       Park Buffer Areas—Area adjacent to or within current and/or future parks which restricts private floating and resort docking facilities.  Individuals and groups are not allowed to make any modifications of the land form or vegetation characteristics under this allocation.

•       Protected Shoreline Areas – Areas designated to protect aesthetic, environmental, and fish and wildlife values.

•       Prohibited Access Areas—Areas immediately upstream from the dam where private docks and shoreline uses are prohibited for safety and security reasons.

•       Marina Buffer Areas—Areas allocated for the placement of remote mooring facilities by existing marina concessionaires on Table Rock Lake.

•       Restricted Limited Development Areas—Areas designated to honor previous commitments to owners of existing, lawfully installed docks.

•       Community Boat Dock Only—Areas approved for Community Boat Docks, 12 to 20 stall boat docks.

•       Courtesy Dock Only—Areas approved for Courtesy Docks only.

•       Resort—Location of resort lease areas.
