The best roadside scenic viewpoint in every state: Missouri: Lake Taneycomo, Point Lookout
Lake Taneycomo was created back in 1913 when the Power Site dam blocked off the White River in one direction, and the Table Rock Dam stopped it in the other. The result is one of the most beautiful fishing destinations in the state, best viewed by pulling off Highway 165 near College of the Ozarks in the appropriately named town of Point Lookout. From here you’ll see the gentle Missouri hills surrounding the lake, with the Table Rock dam standing in the distance.
