This is a huge lake that has many fingers in it and it meanders quite a distance in the area. There is a state park, dam, fish hatchery, marinas, and trails so something for everyone. In October we saw several young girls take the plunge into the water and they really squealed about how cold the water was.

Beautiful , large lake that has a lot of boats running around - but still is nice. Hiking around, walking near, swimming and more here! Bring the family, picnic and just relax. A great place to watch sunset is the boat ramp near Moonshine Beach!

The trailhead starts at the Marina (or the visitor center near the dam which is closed indefinitely during the pandemic.)
We went on Thursday October 1 and there were very few people on the trail.
The trail is paved the entire 2.2 miles and has numerous picnic areas along the way. Also there are restrooms at both ends and in the middle.
The dam is an interesting site.

Mostly a retiree community, not well equipped for visitors at least before Memorial Day weekend. Lampe, MO is especially boring. No restaurants, bars, or open public docks. View is blocked by a bunch of private docks. We stayed at Bella Vita, a small place that was connected to an adjoining place with a deck that literally overlooked ours, and the owners arrived unannounced at that property and were literally overlooking us during our stay! Unprofessional behavior that wouldn’t be tolerated in a metropolitan area at all. Highly recommend staying in West Branson or Branson instead!

We stayed at Big Cedar Lodge and rented a jet ski on the lake. We had a fantastic time the lake is very pretty and people are very friendly. We rode around to the Branson Showboat Belle and then back to Big Cedar Lodge.

Came here for a walk with a group ranging from 1 year to 60 years. We parked one car at the State Park Marina and left another at the Dam and enjoyed the walk. It was a bit longer than I thought, and I'm glad we opted for just a one-way walk instead of the out and back. There was a lot to see along the walk including birds, lizards, and water views and the trail was nice and paved the whole way. We then enjoyed a picnic lunch at a nice covered table back near the administration building.

Most beautiful lake in Missouri and Illinois we have visited so far. Rocky beach, shade from trees near the lake, picnic tables, clean water and not too many boats or large crowds ( we visited in August). Also, no homes near the lake, it's all nature and beautiful rolling green hills. Love it, would love to live there 💚

We love Table Rock Lake. We have stayed at different resorts here and tried different restaurants. The convenience stores are run by great people as well. It was great to finally make a visit during the summer.

A Great Lake to rent a boat for a day while visiting Branson. It’s a deep, wide lake with beautiful views. Reasonable. It’s close to Branson so if you like the water this gem is a must see.

I had never been parasailing before, so I decided on my Branson trip I would do something "daring." Little did I know, the adventure level of parasailing is pretty minimal, unless it's windy I suppose. The view was fantastic. The employees were very friendly and answered any questions we had. It was a great time. I definately recommend paying for a rider to come along and snap as many pictures as possible. They'll do it for you, but the disk is $10 and we only got 4 pictures.
