With a lake the size of Table Rock Lake there are several places to cross from the lake from North to South as well as East to West, and with these crossings and come Lake Communities.
Some of the communities have a history that will date back to before Table Rock Lake even came into existence. Some even go back to the settlement days. The areas of highway crossing the lake is typically the areas that were developed first and still tend to be the largest as far as small communities go.
