Guide to the Tri Lakes of Branson, MO


Branson, Missouri sits in a unique setting as it sits next to three of the best lakes in Missouri. Table Rock Lake, Lake Taneycomo and Bull Shoals Lake are all a short distance from the city and provide a host of fun activities. Each southern Missouri lake offers a unique experience, and enough to do that will keep you busy for days at a time. Regardless of what you like to do on the lake, Bull Creek RV Park is the place to be for the best experience of Branson, MO.
Table Rock Lake sits just east of Branson, about 10 miles if you are heading to Table Rock State Park. This man-made lake boasts 800 miles of shoreline, as it mostly sits in southern Missouri, although it does stretch a bit into Arkansas.

Some of the most popular activities at Table Rock Lake include boating and other water sports, such as swimming, visiting beaches, and fishing. Boating is the most popular activity on the lake, and there are many ways to enjoy it. You can either bring your own boat or rent one from one of the many lake marinas. Many visiting boaters also enjoy water sports, such as skiing, tubing, wake surfing and many others.

If you're looking for a slower activity, you can visit one of the beaches and swim areas along the shores. Moonshine Beach is close to Branson and offers a designated swim area, as well as docks for boat launch. Another tranquil activity is fishing. Table Rock Lake is home to a healthy bass population, drawing anglers from all over.

It's important to consult the Table Rock Lake map to stay safe and have an enjoyable outing.
Lake Taneycomo is the smaller of Branson's tri lakes, but that doesn't mean it's short on fun activities. Lake Taneycomo runs through Branson and heads east to the Powersite Dam. The lake is narrow and winding, offering about 40 miles of shoreline.

Trout fishing is a popular activity at Lake Taneycomo, as anglers will find a fair amount of brown and rainbow trout. The lake also offers opportunities for kayaking, canoeing and boating. Since the lake runs through downtown Branson, it provides a pristine backdrop to the boardwalk and Branson Landing. You can also take a lake cruise from Branson Landing as another way to explore the lake. Parakeet Pete's also offers a zipline that will take you soaring over Lake Taneycomo.

A map of Lake Taneycomo can help you best enjoy this man-made reservoir both in Branson and out of town.
Bull Shoals Lake is the largest of Branson's tri lakes, boasting 74 square miles and over 1,050 miles of shoreline. This lake is similar to Table Rock Lake as it stretches across state lines, making it one of the best lakes in Arkansas and Missouri. The majority of the lake is in Arkansas, but starts in Missouri and weaves in and out of the state at points. The larger portion of the lake is about 80 miles east of Branson, but you can access the western edges of the lake after a 14-mile drive.

Fishing is popular at Bull Shoals Lake, as anglers can catch a variety of bass from the waters. There are some fishing guides to help you enjoy an outing. Boating is another great way to experience the lake, and there are several marinas near the shores that allow easy access. Boating provides opportunities for water sports, or just a chance to explore the many coves for a good fishing spot.

If you are planning on exploring, be sure to reference the Bull Shoals Lake map.
