I know what you are thinking. Oh it's that live music mecca, but it has a lake?
It is the Live Music mecca, but Branson has featured Table Rock Lake and the beautiful Ozarks for over 50 years!
Table Rock Lake is a man made lake to prevent flooding of Branson and other towns along the White River.
Table Rock Lake has 745 miles of coastline and is a warm water lake.
Table Rock Lake dam runs 4 generators for power and the water that flows below the dam into Lake Taneycomo is COLD WATER!
Cold enough for trout? Yes! There is a trout hatchery below the dam that you can tour FREE.
Fishers can fish the warm water of Table Rock Lake for bass, perch, crappie or fish below the dam in Lake Taneycomo for trout.
Table Rock Lake was ranked by Bassmaster Magazine in the top 100 of Best Bass Lakes in the nation.
Lake Taneycomo is well known for trout fishing.
Many people love to just cruise the lake in their speedboats, pontoon boats or houseboats.
Kayakers love to explore the coves along
Table Rock Lake or float down Lake Taneycomo.
There are restaurants that are water accessible and docks for your boat.
Lake view and lake front homes usually have large decks for
outdoor living as well as interior views of the lake.

winter or by the fire pit outdoors.
