There’s a simple recipe for taking your Branson vacation from memorable to absolutely unforgettable: Just add water.
With clean, scenic lakes and thrilling water parks focused on family fun, a Branson vacation boasts more than enough water-based fun to keep you and your crew swimming, splashing and smiling from sunup to sundown.
Need help getting started? Pack the sunscreen and your goggles and plan to enjoy these Branson features on your next lake and water park adventure:
Hit the beach: Spending a day at Branson’s Moonshine Beachon Table Rock Lake is a great way to enjoy the water. The clear waters of Table Rock Lake are great for swimming, boating and fishing. At Moonshine Beach, enjoy a dip and the natural beauty around you while lounging on the sand.
Scream your head off: Branson’s White Water Water Parkhas riders screaming with delight. Kapau Plummet features two 245-foot slides that start with a pulse-pounding experience: The floor literally drops out from underneath you, sending you down the slide at 26 feet per second (if you’re terrible at math, just know, that’s really fast).
Get lazy: Castle Rock Resort’s water parkhas several great amenities, from slides to tipping buckets, but it’s hard to beat a leisurely ride — or several — around the lazy river feature. It’s the perfect respite when you’ve spent an hour or two keeping up with the kids and a great way to slow down and appreciate the company of that special someone.
Grab a snorkel: The clean, clear waters of Bull Shoals Lakemake it a fisherman’s dream and a great place for scuba diving. Yes, scuba diving! With more than 740 miles of shoreline, the options for fun on Bull Shoals Lake are abundant – just remember to pack your flippers.
Make a splash: It’s as easily said as it is done at Splash Country, the water park at the popular Grand Country Resort in Branson. With ample water-based fun, and features like slides and kiddie pools, there’s certainly something for everyone at Splash Country. Or experience splashing down into Table Rock Lake or Lake Taneycomo on a land and water adventure with Ride the Ducks.
Paddle or fish: No, not paddle fish; paddle or fish. On Lake Taneycomo, enjoy the challenge of landing trout at one of the Midwest’s best trout fisheries or try adventure of a different kind by contacting a local outfitter and renting a stand-up paddleboard.
