Was so excited to find out beach was actually open. Spent last 2 days there and would have spent many more if discovered earlier. Recommend getting there early to get covered picnic area with BBQ grills. Bring inflatable floats and sunscreen!! Definitely will return

Perfect beach....so clean and a huge swimming area marked off by a yellow tube.
Water was very clear....we did share it with a few small fish but kids had so much fun trying to catch them!
Great temperature and picnic tables and areas to eat. If you get there early they have covered picnic tables which you can store your things on and sit to eat.
The beach area is large and sand building was so much fun! Our grandchildren, ages 11, 10, and 5 loved it!

We were looking for something to do during warm summer weather while at Branson on a girls trip. The water was not as clear as the reviews had said but we’ve had a lot of rain this summer. There are signs posted for no alcohol. There are some lifejackets provided if you need one. We took rafts. The beach is Sandy and there are some small rocks so take water shoes if you have them. There were a lot of people there but we were able to socially distance easily.

I am confused on why people are so enamored with this beach. It is picturesque and a decent place. However the sand is not great and at the edge of the lake it is pebble bed. This made walking on it very painful. Very. I hated the pebbles. Water shoes are a must. $5 entry fee and go early to get a spot.

Memorial Day weekend- went on Tuesday beach is “closed due to flooding” for at least a few more weeks. Had vacation planned around being able to go to beach with the kids. Why not close off the dam leading up to a huge holiday weekend when you know the water levels are too high. Ruined our trip

It LOOKS Wonderful .......We rented house very close specifically to be able to go to Moonshine Beach and only found out it was closed by going there.

Communication regarding this major closure would have been soooooo helpful in planning.

Marinas were loving the extra business as families struggled to come up with activites for their groups....but really on vacation it was unnecessary stress.

Went here two days in a row with our teens. Nice beach. Not soft sand, but a little rocky. Cost $5 per car for the day. Had nice bathrooms and play area. Has small shelters along the beach that we used both days. Can’t wait to go back.

Drove from Springfield to come to the beach for my kiddo's birthday (July 7th). Beach was closed. No indication on website whatsoever. It was very disappointing for all of us. Wound up spending a lot of $ on the strip to make up for the crummy birthday let down. Please, please, please put updates on your website about park closings!!!

Please put on the website that you closed right now. You can still go out on a boat but we were so disappointed when we saw it was closed. And I'm sure others travel way more than our 4 hours. We will be back. But were excited to spend the day on the Beach!

Our family LOVES Moonshine Beach! We visit there for a fun-filled day in the sun every single year, but not this year. Thanks to lots of rain this year, water levels were too high and when we went to the entrance of the beach, we were disappointed to see it was closed. No fault to the beach, of course, but we schedule an entire day of our vacation to go there. We rented a boat later in the week to see just how high the water levels were, and the very wide beach was almost completely underwater with water reaching up to the shelter house at the top of the hill. No wonder it's closed, but disappointing non-the-less with no other beach options available at Table Rock Lake. So, we swam from the boat...we missed you Moonshine Beach!!!
