Why We Love It: The Ozarks is known for its lush forests, but have you ever seen an underwater forest? If not, the Enchanted Forest is a must-see. This grove is home to large moss-covered oak trees, some of which still break the surface and can be seen from your boat. If you have a way to take underwater photos, this site provides some breathtaking photo ops. The silhouette of the trees against the ambient light above produces a beautiful visual effect, and the lush trees attract schools of fish. This site can only be reached by boat. To get there, head half-a-mile north from Table Rock Dam, and look for the bluff just under the Chateau On The Lake and you’ll find the site on.
