This is a "must see" for all our guests. It gives a nice overview of the building of the dam after years of flooding. Lots of history of Table Rock. The movie takes about 20 minutes. Sit in the back as the movie seems out...More

Been here a few times staff and volunteers are always helpful. This visit was mainly to obtain the senior park pass before the upcoming price increase. The process took just minutes

This exhibit adjacent to the dam provides excellent history, an opportunity to see how the White River dams are managed, and very good wild life panoramas. Great for all ages.

Had a great view of the lake and dam. Also had some interesting information and exhibits. Kind of a long walk from the parking lot though. Be sure to pull up to the entrance and drop the elderly/disabled closer to the door.

This is a fairly new visitor center by one of the dams. Building is modern and "green" and has some interesting exhibits and views. Nice stop for a casual rest from the heat.

A very nice Visitor's Center. Lots of information about Table Rock Lake Dam, the local wildlife, as well as conservation info. They had several fun activities for the kids. And they had a beautiful view of Table Rock Lake and surrounding areas.

We didn't get there early enough to see everything, including the movie. We did enjoy the views, walking around the grounds, and the informational areas inside (some are hands on for kids to enjoy).

Good place to learn more about the lake and dam. Situated directly at the top of the dam so easy to find.

The dam museum offers multiple interactive exhibits for both adults and children as well as an educational video abut how and why the dam was built. There are several observation decks for a beautiful view of Table Rock Lake. Great option for a free outing...More
