Lake Taneycomo: A Complete Guide

Formed after the completion of Powersite Dam in 1913, Lake Taneycomo was originally a section of the White River. Although it is now technically a lake, Taneycomo’s narrow arms and forested shores retain the look and feel of a river. When Table Rock Dam was completed at Taneycomo's headwaters in 1958, the nature of the lake changed as well. Taneycomo's water now comes from the bottom, coldest parts of Table Rock Lake, making it the coldest lake in Missouri.
