Since the early 1950's the U.S. Corps of Engineers have been quite active in Missouri, especially in the Ozark region. By developing several large flood control projects two distinct "lake areas" have emerged. One is located along the south central Missouri-Arkansas boundary in some of the most rugged portions of the Ozarks. The other lake area is located just inside the west central portion of the Missouri Ozarks. Though less rugged than the former it is still comparatively rough, with local relief approaching 200 feet along some rivers.
