Most notably, Kimberling City has easy access to the famous Table Rock Lake, as well as Fisher Creek and Schooner Creek.
At Table Rock Lake, you can go boating, kayaking, and fishing, or even take a sightseeing ferry ride on an authentic paddlewheel cruiser. The sunset cruises are especially wonderful, combining the natural splendor of the Ozarks with educational information and entertaining narration. Certain cruises even have live shows, in the traditional spirit of Branson entertainment! Table Rock Dam is also an impressive sight, particularly when you consider its importance in developing Branson into the Missouri hub that it is today.
After a long day at the lake (or sightseeing around Kimberling City in general), satisfying your craving for wholesome local food with the American fare at RT’s Family Restaurant, the classic barbeque at Jill’s B-B-Q, the lighter sandwiches at Leona’s Deli, or the spicy and flavorful dishes at Crazy Cajun Citchen.
For more adventures outdoors, there are a variety of tours given in nearby Dogwood Canyon, including guided trails taken on horseback or on foot. Another interesting tour called “Ride the Ducks” uses retired amphibious military vehicles from World War II known as “ducks” to take visitors on a high-thrills tour through the Ozarks. Take your thrills even further by jumping on the Indian Point Zipline, or climbing Inspiration Tower.
Kids and kids-at-heart will enjoy the informational (and free) fish exhibits at the Shepherd of the Hills Fish Hatchery, the up-close-and-personal action at the Butterfly Palace & Rainforest Adventure, and the diversity of the animals at Branson’s Promised Land Zoo.
