Missouri is a place of unexpected beauty: rolling hills, gorgeous sunsets, rugged mountains, thousands of caves, and a wide selection of scenic lakes. In total, there are about 568 lakes in the Show-Me State, from small backyard ponds to massive lakes tens of thousands of acres in size. We thought there’d be no better way to showcase the best lakes to our readers than by asking Missourians themselves to recommend their favorites by taking a poll on our Only In Missouri Facebook page. We then narrowed the selections down to this list of the 12 most beautiful lakes in Missouri, as selected by you, our readers!
