Branson, Missouri, Lake Life, Adventure and Family Memories

A trip to Branson Missouri means a trip to Table Rock Lake.  While in the City of Branson you can see an excellent Country Music show (yawn) performed by the very best in the business.  Or you get wet!  Brandon Butler provides and excellent lake introduction.

The Missouri Ozarks offer an abundance of spectacular outdoor destinations worthy of visiting. Few, however, compare to Table Rock Lake. With 45,000 acres of surface water and 800 miles of natural shoreline, Table Rock has both the size and scenery to make it one of the premier destinations in America to kick back, relax and unwind in the great outdoors.  The shoreline surrounding Table Rock Lake is protected from expansive development, so no matter where you are on the lake, you’re surrounded by natural scenery. The countless coves and deep pockets make for quiet hideaways, so it’s easy to find your own secluded place to anchor and swim. Pull over on the shore for a picnic in a relaxing spot under a shady tree, or stretch a hammock for a nap. At any time, a white-tailed deer, wild turkey or bald eagle may make an appearance, as wildlife is very abundant. This is just one example of how you can relax on the lake. Here are just a few more of the endless opportunities available to escape the hectic pace at Table Rock Lake.

I didn’t care for all of his examples and included the following as my own.



Yep, Ride The Ducks is an amphibian – this thing really does go from land right into the river. Our Ducks resemble the WWII DUKW in appearance only. The Ride The Ducks vehicle is built, exclusively for us, from the ground-up using the latest in marine safety.

Did I Mention the Famed Showboat, Branson Belle?


And for those of you who have completely lost your mind…

Personally, I’m quite happy renting a Pontoon Boat from the State Park Marina and cruising around with my family.  Find a cove, go swimming and eat lunch, simple.

So whatever you choose to do in the Branson area you will certainly have a great time.
