Fodor's Expert Review Table Rock State Park
A short drive from Branson will take you to this gorgeous natural expanse on the banks of Table Rock Lake, a popular camping spot with facilities for boating, fishing, and even scuba diving. There are also hiking trails, mountain-biking trails, and picnic areas. At the marina you can rent boats and purchase tackle and snacks. The flora and fauna in the park include oak and hickory trees, glade plants, wildflowers, wild turkeys, and foxes, as well as tarantulas.
