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.

Hiked this 12/9. It was lovely to walk and see the lake on a crisp day. It was completely paved though, if you don't mind that.

Very well marked thats close to home so if I don’t have much time I’ll hike this in less than an hour at a fast walk.

There are 4 trails that have connectors in this area blue, red, orange & green. I’ve only hiked them all but will be mountain biking these in the future. As a beginner I would start if biking the trails with the green & orange trails. Then I would bump up to the red trail. I could see the blue trail being a challenge for me since I’m a late bloomer at this at 51 but I’m gonna tackle it one of these days.

I prefer the off beatin paths over the asphalt trails but this is a beautiful walk along the the shores of Table Rock Lake thru the State Park.

I only hiked the Red trail. It was well marked and a well worn trail with very little chance of getting lost. Although I didn't see any bikers on my hike, it is shared with them so be aware. I did see other hikers. I like to avoid trails near highways due to traffic noise. I go out in the woods to listen to the sounds of nature and to escape city and traffic noise so this was not a trail for me. I would imagine the trails leading further away from the highway would be devoid of traffic noise. That being said, this would be a nice trail for those who want a leisurely walk through some woods.

Only had a chance to ride the red trail and part of the blue trail. There were rocky sections that made it challenging and it seems like the blue trail was uphill the entire time. The trails are well marked and well maintained. Had a really good time and workout and suggest that you have some mountain biking experience or plan to walk over some of the tougher rocky sections.

Lovely day on this 4.4 mile hike with my dog Atlas.

For mountain biking the trail is probably more advanced than its moderate rating. There are some pretty rocky climbs but a good mixture of dirt single track and rocky down hills. Over all a pretty challenging course.

Paved all the way so it would be good for a baby stroller or wheelchair access.

My wife and I spent an enjoyable time on the red trail. Well maintained and we even got to see a few trees showing off their fall colors. Another two weeks or so and it will be full-blown leaf peeping!
