White River

The White River originates in northwest Arkansas, southeast of Fayetteville, in the Boston Mountains. The White River is impounded as Lake Sequoyah and by Beaver Dam before entering Missouri near Eagle Rock in Barry County. From that point it flows eastward along the Missouri-Arkansas border, where it is impounded by Table Rock Dam and Powersite Dam, in Missouri, and Bull Shoals Dam, in Arkansas. The White River then flows southeast from Bull Shoals Dam, where it exits the Ozark Plateau, turns south into the delta region of Arkansas, and continues to its confluence with the Mississippi River, some 720 miles from its origin.
