“Good views of the lake by Branson Landing.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2013

Pros: nice view of the "balds" by the lake; main lake that is stocked by trout raised at the Fish Hatchery; long and winding lake that looks more like a river.(but the locals say that it is bordered by 2 dams which classifies it as a lake.

Cons: none.

Thanks for taking time to review Lake Taneycomo! That's great you got to see some bald eagles! Yes, Lake Taneycomo used to be apart of the White River. Now with Table Rock Dam on one end and Powersite Dam on the other, it is technically a lake even though it flows like a river. The trout fishing is great!

“Cruise on the lake”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

We took the afternoon cruise which was pleasant and relaxing. The captain tells amusing stories along the way. We skipped purchasing the lunch because we felt it was overpriced. I wouldn't take the cruise again, once is enough. If it is cool, I recommend sitting downstairs which is inside. You can still see everything as you cruise along. The paddlewheel boat is a replica and does not run on steam.

“Paddlewheel cruise from Landing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

We took the lunch cruise down the White River/Lake Taneycomo. Captain narrated the sights along the narrow lake. We paid for lunch and there was a choice between chicken tenders and burgers. Food was hot. Soft drinks, hot drinks, alcoholic and water are available, as well as snacks for those who do not wish to order the meal. Very relaxing 2 our trip.

Relaxing cruise on lake -- about 2 hours Captain tells about the lake and food & drinks can be purchased. Inside seating and outside, too.

“Trip to Branson”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

We love to fish on this lake. This was our second trip to Branson and each time we catch the max limit. Three years ago it was 5 fish per person, unfortunately in 2013 the limit was 4 Rainbow Trout and if you were lucky to catch any Brownie's, they had to be 20" or longer or you had to put them back !!! I caught 4 Rainbow's!!! So excited!!! In 2010, I caught 0 !!! ZERO ! Was not a great time..lol..lol.. My Baker Family also came thru...we caught our limit all 3 days we went out to fish. My husband caught a "sucker" fish?1? Was not edible but quite large, nephew caught his first Rainbow Trout and the rest of us, TROUT ! In the end, we caught 81 fish, having a great Fish Fry on 09/13/13 here at home. Good fishing peeps!!!! We launched out of Coopers Creek Marina and had a great time. Fritz, the owner was so nice. If my husband was not set on staying at the Hilton in town, we so would of stayed at Coopers Creek Cabins. GREAT, GREAT MARINA.
