We have three beautiful lakes in the Branson area that are world class! Each lake has its own uniqueness that we love to enjoy. Table Rock Lake is a warm weather lake that is popular for boating and big bass fishing. Taneycomo Lake is a flowing lake that is known for its champion trout fishing and cold water. And, thirdly, Bull Shoals Lake is loved for its fishing, boating, and quiet waters. All three lakes are artificial lakes built along the White River to combat the destructive flooding that was happening and to harness this renewable energy source, the power of water.
Table Rock Lake is roomy with 52,000 acres and 500 miles of shoreline. This gorgeous lake has earned the repeat business of families and water lovers for over 50 years. Table Rock Lake spreads across Stone County and down into Arkansas. Enjoy fishing for big bass on TRL and, if you’re feeling competitive, sign up for a fishing tournament, such as The Anglers in Action Tournament, FLW Tournament, or The Big Bass Tournament. Or rent a boat and enjoy tubing, wake boarding, and skiing on this big lake! There’s plenty of room for splashing around in the warm waters during the late spring, summer, and early fall! Contact Long Creek Marina or Table Rock State Park Marina to rent a bass boat, speed boat, or pontoon. Both are full service marinas with teams of people that will make sure you are outfitted for a day on TRL!
