If you are thinking about settling down lakeside, then Firstmate Controls is here to help! Today we are diving into the top four lakes in Missouri to help you find your perfect paradise. Whether you are looking for a great place to let loose or a serene spot to enjoy the peace and quiet, Missouri has a lake for you. Keep reading to learn all about four of the most popular and let us know what your favorite one is!

Lake of the Ozarks

The Lake of the Ozarks is a massively popular lake destination in Missouri. It's located practically in the middle of the state and has more shoreline than the coast of California. It's true! This Lake has also been named the #1 recreational lake in America by USA Today, as well as #2 most beautiful fall foliage in the United States. 

This is the perfect lake for you if you love having a great time on the water with lots of people and fun times during the summer, with a more laid back atmosphere during the "off-season" months. There are also plenty of non-lake activities like spelunking in caves, hiking beautiful trails, and shopping at the Osage Strip Mall or in adorable shops around the lake.

Table Rock Lake 

This is another man-made lake that is very popular for vacationers in Missouri. It is located near Branson, so there are several great activities that the whole family can take advantage of after a fun day on the lake. One of the most gorgeous places to stay and play in this area is Big Cedar Lodge, just south of Branson. 

With limits on docks on the main channel, this lake has fewer docks and is considered the more serene of the two most popular lakes. This could be perfect for you if you are looking for a quiet place to enjoy nature without as many over-sized yachts and party boats.

Lake Taneycomo

Lake Taneycomo is very close to the Arkansas border and is the perfect place for you to live if you are an avid fisherman or woman. There are several places to rent fishing boats and the lake itself provides ample opportunity to fish with its many fishing piers and businesses catering to those that like to fish. Enjoy a slow day on the water aboard a historic paddle wheel boat - The Lake Queen! There are a lot of great things to do at Lake Taneycomo for the whole family.

Pomme de Terre Lake

This lake is in the southwest part of Missouri, and it is also known for great fishing. The state park is one of the best parts about this lake, and it is known for its two gorgeous sand beaches, hiking, and swimming. It's a beautiful place to be! 

This lake is the perfect place to choose for a little more privacy and isolation. While you can drive to find some great activities, the best thing about Pomme de Terre Lake is that the lake itself is the main attraction so you can enjoy truly authentic "lake life".
