Table Rock Lake Missouri Vacations -- 2013 Scenic Road Trip

The photos, info, and Table Rock Lake Missouri Vacations Tips on this page are almost all from a 2013 Scenic Driving Road Trip we took to the Table Rock Lake area in Missouri. We stayed in a RCI Timeshare Exchange Condo with a balcony that fronted onto Table Rock Lake for some of our scenic Table Rock Lake Missouri Vacations selected photos below.

We did several scenic drives around the huge Missouri Table Rock Lake. Table Rock Lake is over 43,000 acres with about 800 miles of shoreline, and is known for great Bass and other Fishing.

The Table Rock Dam was completed on the White River in 1958 by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the distribution of hydro-electric power began to the Ozarks in 1959. The Table Rock Dam was also built to help control a major re-occurring flooding problem in the area. The cold water discharge from the dam also makes for some great trout fishing below the Table Rock Dam in Lake Taneycomo. (Aerial picture of Table Rock Dam below)




We discovered some very scenic campgrounds where almost every paved campsight was right on Table Rock Lake or had a good view of Table Rock Lake. We will have some pictures of those campgrounds and some Info Links + an opportunity for User Campground "Reviews" on our upcoming
"Branson MO Vacations, Attractions, & Area Camping" Page -- check back.

Although the scenery around Table Rock Lake and the lake views were the highlights of the Trip, we did go over to Branson for a few Attractions and afternoon Shows + a lakefront Branson Harbor restaurant with a great outside seating view, which we will "review" here with some pictures when we have gone through all of the photos from the trip and selected our "Top Picks" for this page. Check back.

Google Interactive Table Rock Lake, Missouri Area Map Link - Route: Branson, MO to Kimberling City (Via town of West Branson Route using MO-76 west and MO-13 south) to Mill Creek Campground -- back to Branson, MO via south route using MO-86 -- then to Table Rock State Park & Campground SW of Branson using MO-165.

More Table Rock Lake & Branson area camping and Table Rock State Park Campground Map Links below with Table Rock Dam and steel bridge across Lake pictures. Table Rock Lake Campsites picture and area campground map links near the bottom of this page.

All of the Photos below were taken with my new Canon Powershot SX280 HD Digital Camera which proved to be very useful for this trip with it's built in 20x Zoom lens and "crisp" low light needed new technology Image Processor for some of the cloudy days we had on the trip. So far, I really like this new Canon "Pants pocket sized" camera with many features! (See image link below on left for SX280 Camera description and User Reviews & Ratings at Amazon) 

Tip 1 Check Mark - Virginia discount travels Virginia beach vacations Tip- We found several of the shows, rides, and restaurants gave a discount to Seniors and also to members of the Militiary -- but you had to ask! So don't forget to ask if you are in either catageory.

Tip 2 Check Mark - Virginia discount travels Virginia beach vacations Tip- Also, our friends who had been to Branson Missouri recently told us it was easier to get seated in the area you wanted + ask about discounts if you called each of the theaters directly, Vs going through a online ticket broker. We found that calling the Theatre or just stopping by in person worked well for all of the tickets we purchased in Branson.

We even turned down some front row seats for Branson Shows we were offered for ones back 8 or 10 rows so we would be able to just Watch the show, Vs be a "Participating" audiance member that they often pick from the front 2 rows for the "Audiance Involvement" portions of their programs.

On a different vein, Veterans and present members of the Military can almost count on that they will be asked to stand up as a group and be favorably recognized and applauded during the Branson show -- and they deserve it! The last time we flew, Delta Airlines was letting members of the Military in uniform board first, and asking everyone waiting at the boarding gate to applaud them for their service! Maybe some other Airlines are also doing this by now. A small recognition to help make up for all of the sacrifices they and their families make.
