Sunrise Beach is a beautiful community located in Missouri, the Show-Me State, next to the awe-inspiring
Lake of the Ozarks. The Lake of the Ozarks itself was created
due to construction of Bagnell Dam.
In the 1920's and early 1930's, Sunrise Beach and surrounding communities consisted of nothing more than vast
areas of timber and brush. After the construction of Bagnell Dam by
Union Electric, several communities sprang up around the lake, primarily
due to the beauty inherent in this area. Sunrise Beach, located on the west side of the lake, was one
of those communities, and now offers all the amenities that modern life considers necessary, from recreational
facilities (including many resorts and marinas) to medical and real estate offices, and everything in
between. Some consider Sunrise Beach to be the single most beautiful community around the lake.
