We rented a nice tritoon boat here again for an 8 hour tour of Table Rock Lake and were again very satisfied with the overall experience. This pontoon boat was a relatively new high quality rental. Drove great with its 150 HP 4 cycle Mercruiser. All toll with gas, it cost about $525. Weird how they restrict you to stay in the area of the lake between the hwy 86 bridge towards the Arkansas Missouri border and the Kimberling City bridge.

We rented a slide pontoon for our family of 10, ages 5-68. The marina staff is awesome, very accommodating and obviously want guests to have a wonderful experience on beautiful, warm Table Rock Lake. The slide was fun - it had a water jet to keep you moving. The pontoon had plenty of power to pull the triple tube (extra$) with 3 riders. We motored over to the cliff jumping area. Most of us had a great time jumping into the deep, deep water...even our 5 yr old took the plunge. Gas for the 6 hrs was about $55. Bring and wear water shoes - it's rocky! And don't antagonize any 6" colorful centipedes you may encounter. They are venomous. (Our kids found one on the cliffs) All in all, it was a very fun day at the lake!

The customer service at the State Park Marina was the best over the phone setting up a pontoon boat/jet ski rental to the pick up the day of use. Check in was smooth even considering the COVID crap going on. The boat was is good shape and worked well along with the jet ski. The prices I thought were good considering availability and I will say if you are looking to book a boat don't wait get this done early due to limited craft and people wanting to get on the water. Nice place

If you want a day on the lake, you can rent pontoon boats, regular boats, jet skis or kayaks. It is $120.00 for the pontoon boat which is a good price. they also have inner tubes and skis for the boat so you can make many memories with that.
The souvenirs are a bit pricey so be ready to pay for that.
Bring everything you need for the day but they have a big shop in case you forgot something.
Know that the Dam is having the road fixed so it is a long wait to get over it. Be patient.

We have rented here in the past and did again on this trip. Due to covid they did not do half day rentals and I was worried about how I would spend the minimum of 6 hours in the lake when water temps were too cold to swim. It was cold and cloudy the first 2 hours but the last 4 hours flew by with warmer weather and cruising snd just enjoying the views. So much to see and beautiful mountains. We come to Branson for the lake and it never disappoints even when you can’t swim.

What a great day of boating provided by the great people at State Park Marina! The water was HIGH and the parking lot was flooded, but did they let that get in the way of your good time? Heck no, they had sweet college kids directing traffic to alternate parking and shuttled you and your stuff up and down the ramp to the marina in a golf cart. Great service and way to make lemonade out of lemons!

We rented a "luxury tritoon" for 6 hours. The boat was in great condition, immaculately clean, large, roomy (there were 10 of us and no one was crowded in the slightest), and had an amazing shaded canopy. More than enough cubby room to store all your stuff so it doesn't blow away. Quality life jackets provided for all of your party or you can bring your own. The staff was generous with the end time and adjusted it based on what time you actually pull away from the dock. They do give you a map and will chat with you on where to go if you're unfamiliar with the area. We found some good swimming coves around point 6 on the map.

We also rented a tube at the last minute and it worked out great. We used the tube more as a floating island for the kids when we swam. Because it was tied off, they couldn't drift too far, and they had a great time treating it like a water trampoline and jumping into the water from it. We did some tubing as well but the tube would have been worth it's price just exclusively for the kids to play on.

Thanks for giving us a great day on the lake! We will definitely be using State Park Marina boat rentals again!

Thanks for sharing your experience! Sounds like you had a great day on the lake. High water levels have been out of our control this summer and we appreciate you recognizing our effort to make it as easy as possible to still get out on the lake. We hope to have you back soon!

My wife and I enjoyed the Spirit of America Catamaran sunset cruise on Table Rock Lake in Branson, Missouri. The crew of two was efficient and Captain Matt was knowledgeable and entertaining. The cruise was 1½ hours and provided a relief from the heat. Sunset provided the views. Highly recommended.

We took the Sunset Catamaran tour twice with Captain Matt and frankly it has quickly become our favorite thing to do in the area.
It’s relaxing, low key and positively a wonderful value.
He and his first mates along with Captain Dan in training- are superb!

This was our first trip to Branson. To be honest Branson itself seems to have seen better days. We saw plenty of closed theaters, attractions, restaurants, etc. Maybe the theater generations are dying off. Lots of low end motels, putt putt, and family attractions.

Best part of trip was spending time at Table Rock Lake. Make sure to reserve your boat weeks in advance. We were able to get wave runners for a couple days. We had a large group and the State Park Marina was very accommodating letting us go drop people off at the cliffs and then come back and get the next group. The young men working the docks were very helpful.

It is a beautiful lake and fun to boat on.

We have never done anything like this but was looking for something different. Rented a tritoon with the 150HP engine for 7 of us. With XL tube and damage waiver (since it was my first time on a long time, wouldn't bother again), it was $500 for 6 hours. Then we had another $33 for gas.

But we had a great time. We were on the tubes a lot and then stopped a couple times to just swim. There is a little island not far from the marina that is a nice place for swimming.

Staff was pretty good. Explained everything and answered a few questions. Not overly talkative though. And there were a few things I had to ask that should have been covered. But experience was fine. No complaints.

And it was a great day that we all enjoyed.
