Table Rock Lake Activities For the Family
Branson Table Rock Lake is a collection of lakes that were created in the completion of Table Rock Dam in the year 1958. The history of the Table Rock lakes begins with the building of the dam. Table Rock Lake has approximately 52, 000 acres of water that will be a whole different fun for the family!
The proposed plan of the construction of the Table Rock Dam was in Table Rock Mountain. But due to various tests and surveys, the said place proved to be unstable and thus, unsuitable for the plan. The primary reason for the construction of such dam was for flood control, hydroelectric and water supply. Although the dam was to be constructed in a different place, the name “Table Rock” was retained. And once the dam was completed across The White River, the Branson Table Rock Lake began to fill.
One of the primary purposes of Table Rock Lake is to generate electricity. The energy generated at Table Rock sometimes can be used to meet peak energy demands. Table Rock is a link in a chain of power-producing stations that provide power to about seven million end-use customers in six states (Arkanses, Kansas, Louisiana, Missouri, Oklahoma and Texas) to meet peak demand periods. The Southwest Power Administration is the governing agency and it sells and delivers this power to about one hundred electric cooperative systems in these six states.
Even if the main purpose of the lake was to serve a function, there is still room for some fun. Visitors of Branson can engage in different Branson Lake Activities. With that, Branson is truly a place for entertainment! Here is just a sample of some of the activities visitors may do.
Hop Aboard Showboat Branson Belle
The Showboat of Table Rock Lake is known as the Branson Belle. It is a 1890s paddle wheeler. Visitors may hop aboard it and take part in the cruise. The cruise is not only for quests to witness the beauty of Branson scenery, but also for them to try the elegant dining and live entertainment on board.
Fishing at Table Rock Lake
Table Rock Lake is a renowned bass fishing lake. The lake is definitely as great spot for largemouth and smallmouth bass, crappie, bluegill, and catfish. Visitors coming for some quality fishing should not forget to look below the dam too. Lake Taneycomo completed below changed from a warm to a cold water lake and became a perfect habitat for trout.
Stay at resorts in the Ozarks
There are over 100 resorts in the Ozarks to choose from for family vacation. With this Branson lake activity, visitors will see that Table Rock Lake has two sides – Kimberling city side and Branson side. Visitors will also see that majority of the vacationers choose to stay at the Branson side of Table Rock.
To complete your stay on the lake, you can do some boating in the Table Rock Lake. And for those visitors who do not want to operate a boat, they can make use of the 3 commercial boat cruises or rides that operate on Table Rock Lake. Visitors can count on full service marinas that operate on Table Rock Lake at various locations to provide service and convenience. The State Park Marina is the best choice for any type of water craft rentals; they have everything from wave runners to daily cruised on a 48 ft. sailing catamaran.

Pull Up To The Grill at a Branson Steakhouse
If you are a United States Citizen and you can chew and are not a vegetarian, chances are that you love steak – or at least like steak, or the idea of steak. Steak is quite possibly more American than apple pie, and has been since the cattle boom in the 1880s when cowboys drove thousands upon thousands of cattle across the open range to market. Nowadays, if it’s a steak you are after, there are hundreds of restaurants that offer this American favorite cooked anyway you like. And if you are a citizen or a visitor of Branson, Missouri, you are in luck – there is more than one Branson Steakhouse that is sure to satisfy your steak cravings.
Texas Land and Cattle Steak House
For a flavorful punch as big as the Lone Star State of Texas, stop in for lunch or dinner at the Texas Land and Cattle Steak House on the Branson Landing. It’s a fine dining experience with a Western flair! The décor inside Texas Land and Cattle is bright, wood paneled and lined with beautiful paintings depicting the American West. You’ll enjoy looking around at the unique interior as you wait for your order! Then bring on the food – Texas Land and Cattle features a lunch menu with cheaper prices and lighter dishes, and a full out dinner menu. Kick off your meal with a starter like Smoked Sirloin Nachos, hot and delicious Fried Pickles, served with a white BBQ sauce, or Signature Smoked Sirloin Sliders (also featured on the lunch menu). Then pick your steak! Signature Smoked Sirloin, Cajun Rib-Eye, Bacon Wrapped Sirloin, New York Strip – Texas Land and Cattle has it all! Specialties like salmon and pork chops, soups and salads also grace their menu. And for little cowboys and cowgirls, there is a kids menu as well!
B.T. Bones Steakhouse
‘Great steaks, no bull!’ is the motto of this popular Branson Steakhouse! Since 1992, B.T. Bones has been serving customers delicious steaks and making a name for themselves in the Branson community. Many diners come back again and again, whether they are locals or tourists who visit the area annually. Start off with an appetizer like Mozzarella Cheese Sticks, Ozark Tater Boats (a baked and fried potato filled with bacon, chives and cheese) or Buffalo Wings – but don’t fill up too quickly! Save room for a 22 ounce Rib-Eye Steak, Salisbury Steak, or Medallions of Steak. There is enough steak here to feed an army! Or a hungry crew of cowboys. Don’t forget about dessert! Blackberry Cobbler or Raspberry White Chocolate Cheesecake is the perfect way to round off a good steak.
Outback Steak and Oyster Bar
Want to head ‘down under’ for a great steak, without leaving the Strip in Branson? Then the Outback Steak and Oyster Bar is the place for you. Get ready to chow down on some Authentic Australian Cuisine, indoors or out – Outback Steak and Oyster Bar features a fire pit on their patio for some ultimate relaxation! If you’re up for some ‘Beef on the Barbie,’ order an Aussie Sirloin, a KC Strip Steak or some Prime Rib. Want to get a little wild? Get a Rack of Lamb or an Alligator Tail Dinner. Now that’s something you won’t find at a typical run of the mill steakhouse, mates!
Now you know where to go when you want a juicy, beefy, tender, flavorful symbol of America – a Branson Steakhouse!Read More ...

As a young girl, she took pride in sewing her own clothes and today, she enjoys creating art in oils, pastels, acrylics and everything in between.

Branson Table Rock Lake: A Different Kind of Fun
The Branson Table Rock Lake is a collection of lakes that were created with the completion of the Table Rock Dam in the year 1958. Offering its guest 52, 000 acres of exciting water fun, its creation is not as simple as it seems. The Table Rock Lake is in the Branson Trilakes Area and the history of this lake is dated back to the history of building of the dam.
Before the construction of the Table Rock Dam, it was supposed to be located at Table Rock Mountain. Unfortunately, geological surveys and investigations revealed that the site for construction was unstable and thus, unsuitable for the dam. The dam was relocated across The White River. But even if it was relocated, the “Table Rock” in its original name was not omitted.
The Branson Table Rock Lakes began to fill during the completion of the dam. The dam was constructed primarily for flood control, hydroelectric power, and water supply. And the Table Rock Lake’s primary purpose was for electricity generation since it was a link in a chain of power-producing stations that provide power to about seven million end-use customers in six states. It is truly amazing how the lake is so useful. And it’s not just functional, it’s fun too!
The Table Rock Lake is open to guests and they can surely do a whole lot of things and activities in the lake. They can hop aboard the Showboat Branson Belle that will take then on a cruise with elegant dining, live entertainment, and beautiful scenery to explore the lake. Besides that, Table Rock Lake is also an excellent site for fishing! Largemouth & smallmouth bass, crappie, bluegill, and catfish are just a few of the many you fishes you can catch in the lake. And if you want more, you could also check below the dam because the water of Lake Taneycomo changed from warm to cold that became the perfect habitat for Trout.
If you are very much interested in spending your vacation at the Table Rock Lake, worry no more for there are over 100 resorts you could choose from and many are located on the Kimberling City. And if you ask me, majority of the vacationers still choose to stay at the Branson side of Table Rock Lake. And when you’re in Branson, head over to Thousand Hills Golf Resort for a comfortable and luxurious stay in Branson.
Staying at the lake would definitely require some quality boating. Visitors can choose whether to operate a boat or let a cruise operate it for them. There are 3 commercial boat cruises or rides that operate on Table Rock Lake, which have full-service Marinas at various locations to provide good service and convenience to boaters. And for the best choice for any type of water craft rentals, the State Park Marina is there. And believe me when they say that they have everything for you.
The Branson trilakes area recognises the Table Rock Lake as one of its crown jewels. It has been there drawing tourists from all over the globe. And even if Branson has opened and closed many attractions already, the Table Rock Lake just keeps on getting more popular than ever!Read More ...
