Table Rock Lake

Table Rock Lake, in Southwest Missouri, is the magnate that attracts all the points of interests, shows, and commerce of Branson.  It would be a great paddling destination.  The lake has a 745-mile long shoreline at normal levels, covers 43,100 acres of surface, and a depth of 200-feet.  Even in a brutal year like this one, I'm told that there is so much water that it doesn't freeze unless you venture up into one of the fine fingers.  It takes such a lake to support the use of a vessel like the Paddle-wheel Showboat Branson Belle.

The landing is recreated from a hundred years ago, and McAdoo Boatworks sets the stage for you to step aboard a paddle-wheeler just as Mark Twain would have done.

We were lucky to catch the last of the autumn foliage.
