Located adjacent to Table Rock Lake and near Branson, Mo., one of the hottest tourism spots in the United States, Table Rock State Park offers easy lake access and is a short drive to area attractions and entertainment. The public marina is equipped and ready to outfit the visitor eager to explore the lake. Boat rentals, including personal watercrafts such as WaveRunners, pontoon boats, ski boats and fishing boats, are available, and all the supplies needed for the trip are stocked. Those seeking a bit more adventure can check out the scuba dive shop, try a para-sailing ride or take an excursion on a 48-foot catamaran. Located among oak and hickory trees, two camping areas wind along the shoreline allowing easy access to the lake. The shady campgrounds include basic, electric only and sewer/water/electric campsites, modern restrooms, showers and coin-operated laundry rooms. Scattered near the lakeshore are numerous picnic sites. An open picnic shelter, perfect for family reunions and get-togethers, can be reserved by contacting the park office. Although there is not a designated beach, visitors can swim in several areas of the park. Table Rock State Park is a great base camp for all that Table Rock Lake and Branson have to offer.
Brian D. on White River Valley Trail System
Great trail. There's a variety of terrain; hard packed trail, muddy, rocky... it's got it all. Nice scenery, mostly well maintained trail with numerous routes.
They rate this trail as difficult.
Our GPS said 3.4 miles. We did the red loop today in 1 hr 20 min. I would say it's easy to moderate. There is some uneven footing but nothing too difficult. We are here in the fall and saw no water.
I suspect in the spring there would be water and muddy spots. It was a beautiful sunny day in November :)
We rode mountain bikes for the entire trail system which totaled about 12 miles. We started on the red trail and just kept taking lefts every time the trail forked. It was a great trail system. Good mix of climbs, downhills, and technical sections. The added bonus was the pretty scenery of the Branson hills. We will definitely be coming back!
Good trail. Do not believe the sign that says the red loop is 2.5 miles. It's longer than that. Closer to 3.2. My kids liked it, but started complaining towards the last 1/4 mile that it was too long. But other than that it was good. Also the trailhead is not where the indicated pin is on the app. It's further down the road. Look for the signs that say trailhead.
loved all the loops in the orange loop a primitive cabin and root cellar. great views. good climbs. I have mountain biked these as well. a little challenging as the trails are not well maintained. be prepared to hike bike in a few places if your not a advanced rider.
