What To Expect With Branson Weather
Any resident of the Branson area can tell you one truth about Branson weather – it’s unpredictable at best. So before you pack an entire suitcase of summer clothes for your vacation, here are a few tips to help you brave Branson’s unpredictable nature.
1. Check the forecast. If you’re getting ready to take a Branson vacation, check the forecast well in advance. Doing this will help you to better plan your wardrobe. Plus, it also helps you plan your activities during your stay, because you can’t play golf very well when it’s raining.
2. ALWAYS bring a jacket. A light jacket can be your best friend when you’re traveling to Branson. Even in the summer, the evenings can get chilly. Having a jacket on hand keeps you from freezing to death while you’re walking out to your vehicle after a show or strolling the Landing in the evenings.
3. Summers get HOT. That said, it’s important to drink plenty of water and pack a bottle of sunscreen. Bring light colored clothing along too. It will keep you cooler during those steamy days we get in southwest Missouri. The heat also gives you an excuse to pack your bathing suit so you can enjoy the beautiful Table Rock Lake.
4. Know what the averages are. Typically, high temperatures for summers in Branson range from low 80s to high 90s. Low temperatures are usually in the 70s and sometimes below. Temperatures will be affected by the humidity, which is always high in the summertime.
5. Have an alternative plan for your day. If you’re planning on playing a game of golf and a rain shower sneaks up on you and changes your plans, having an alternative activity can be a great idea. Some great rainy day activities are close by, like the World’s Largest Toy Museum, the Ralph Foster Museum at College of the Ozarks, indoor mini-golf at Grand Country Inn, or a movie at the Branson IMAX.
6. Keep your phone handy. Many phones nowadays are capable of telling you the weather anytime, anywhere. Keeping your smartphone handy will keep you from being caught in an unexpected thunderstorm. If you don’t have a smartphone, you can call the National Weather Service hotline for a Springfield/Branson weather forecast at 417-869-4491.
7. Other general clothing tips.
a.Socks and alternative shoes. Flip-flops are fabulous, but if the weather turns sour, it won’t exactly be enjoyable getting your (basically) bare feet all wet. Tennis shoes are advisable, especially if you’re going to be doing any walking. Extra socks are good too, just in case a pair get soggy.
b. Jeans. Bringing jeans along is important, especially if Branson weather turns a little chilly after dark.
c. Umbrella or poncho. These are nice to have if the forecast calls for scattered showers and Branson just happens to get one. Compact ones are easy to keep in your car or pack in a suitcase.
d. Emergency car kit and other supplies. Keeping one of these in your car is one of the best ways to prepare for a “worst case scenario.” With Branson weather, if you get stranded because of high water or a tornado, it will be very helpful if you have items like a flashlight, extra batteries, a weather radio, and food and water.
The unpredictability of Branson weather makes it hard to know just what to bring along. Planning ahead helps you make certain that you have what you need in many different situations.Read More ...

State Parks Near Branson – The Best Way to See the Ozarks
The city of Branson is a great place to vacation – there are countless theatre attractions, multiple shopping malls, a bounty of bluegrass venues, great restaurants, and then some. But what does Branson have to offer adventurers who just want to get out of Dodge? If hiking, fishing, bird watching, horseback riding or flower gathering sounds more enticing than shows and shopping, the state parks near Branson are sure to become some favorite hotspots.
Table Rock State Park
Table Rock State Park is one of the most popular state parks around the Branson area. Located off of Highway 165, a few miles southeast of town, this park showcases one of Missouri’s most historic lakes. Table Rock Lake came to be in the 1950s when the Table Rock Dam was built along the White River; it is named after a large rock shelf set about one mile downstream from the dam site. (To learn more about the dam, visit the Dewey Short Visitor Center, next to the lake on Highway 165) Today, Table Rock State Park offers a multitude of recreational activities. There is a lakeside marina, where water enthusiasts can rent kayaks, WaveRunners, fishing boats, and the like. Fishing is a popular pastime at Table Rock – the lake is known for its bass, catfish and crappie. There are several good swimming locations along the shoreline, many of them near picnic sites. If you fall in love with the lake and want to stay awhile, the park offers two campgrounds right next to the water for your enjoyment.
Roaring River State Park
Roaring River State Park is as beautiful and intriguing as its name. Located 35 miles west of Branson, off of Farm Road 2239 in Cassville, Missouri, this state park reigns supreme as far as trout fishing goes – it is known to be one of the best trout locations in the nation. Roaring River became a state park in 1928 when a St. Louis businessman named Thomas Sayman purchased 2,400 acres along the river and donated his purchase to the state. The Missouri Department of Natural Resources now manages the park. Seven different hiking trails take explorers deep into the rugged beauty of the Roaring River terrain. If hiking is not your forte, stop in and stay awhile at the Chinquapin Nature Center and learn about the natural history of the park. The river itself is stocked with trout daily by the parks’ hatchery; fisherman can process their catch at the parks’ cleaning and fillet station. Roaring River also hosts many naturalist events, such as wildflower workshops, free fishing days, and eagle watches.
Busiek State Forest and Wildlife Area
Busiek State Forest is one of the steepest, rockiest, most Ozarkian original of the state parks near Branson. Located fourteen miles north of Branson, directly off of Highway 65, Busiek encompasses 2,505 acres of beautiful Missouri wilderness. Five miles of nature trails with varying degrees of difficulty offer great hiking, wildlife watching and photographic opportunities. Hunting, fishing and camping are also available in the state forest with permits obtained from the Missouri Department of Conservation. If you are an equine enthusiast, Busiek offers some of the best, most challenging horseback riding terrain in Southwest Missouri – you’ll want to pack a lunch and your saddlebags and stay all day!
Dogwood Canyon Nature Park
Dogwood Canyon Nature Park (not a state park, but well worth the visit!) is located south of Branson and sixteen miles west of Highway 65, and offers visitors some of the Ozarks’ most spectacular scenery on the Missouri/Arkansas border. It is a spectacular experience you won’t want to miss! Dogwood Canyon is tailor-made for the outdoor enthusiast; the park offers hiking and walking trails, fishing, and fly fishing clinics, back country jeep tours, wildlife tram tours, guided trail rides and authentic horseback cattle drives, where guests ride all day driving Texas Longhorns to fresh pastures – a chuck wagon lunch is included! There is sure to be something for everyone at Dogwood Canyon.
There is a little bit of everything at the state parks near Branson. If the great outdoors is what you’re after, you’re sure to find it here!Read More ...
