A tribute to all veterans, the exhibit was dedicated in 1995 by 28

Bob Hope and The Children of the Ozarks. Ripley’s Believe It Or Not! Museum houses “American Highrise,” a mural by local artist and entertainer Richard D. Clark.

Geocaching

Hiking

Dogwood Canyon

Within minutes of the bright lights of Branson, outdoor enthusiasts enjoy hiking, biking, camping, canoeing, kayaking, horseback riding, trout and bass fishing, hunting, trap and skeet shooting, spelunking, rock climbing and recreational and competitive sporting activities. Area public parks, beaches, resorts, campgrounds, forests and recreational facilities abound. The Branson/Lakes Area has three pristine lakes with hundreds of miles of natural shoreline and more than 100,000 acres of city, state, federal and privately-owned forest, conservation, wildlife, wilderness and park areas available to visitors. Included in the Branson area on Hwy. 76 W, guests can hike the trail at the 1,574-acre Ruth and Paul Henning Conservation Area. There are three hiking trails, a cave and a view of Lake Taneycomo within the 130-acre Lakeside Forest Wilderness Area on Fall Creek Road. Missouri’s 1.5-million acre Mark Twain National Forest offers guests a wealth of outdoor recreational opportunities in and around the nearby towns of Kimberling City and Forsyth.

Topography The Ozark Mountain terrain of caves, streams, rivers, lakes, waterfalls, grasslands, forests, steep rocky hillsides, bottomland and glades make up the breathtaking topography of the Branson/Lakes Area. 30

Big Cedar Lodge

Balds Although hardwood forests cover much of the Branson/ Lakes Area, one of the most intriguing features is the “glades,” frequently referred to as “balds” by locals because of their characteristically sparse terrain of semi-desert soil, ledge-rock, scattered cedar trees and prairie plants amidst rolling seas of oak and hickory trees. You’ll most often see glades on the south- and west-facing slopes of hills where intense and prolonged sunlight coupled with fires started by lightning or by Native Americans and early settlers have kept them relatively clear of trees.

Bald Knobbers The area’s balds served as important meeting spots for the 1880’s vigilante justice gangs that organized in Taney County after many years of lawlessness following the Civil War. Started by upstanding citizens, the Bald Knobbers as they became known, concealed their identities for fear of retribution by criminals and eventually lost popular support due to their increasingly ruthless and seemingly indiscriminate tactics. You can still see “Baldknobbers” in Branson, the musical instrument-toting kind, at the Baldknobbers’ Jamboree show and as characters in the Shepherd of the Hills Outdoor Drama, both of which are well past their 50th year of bringing music and entertainment to Branson audiences.

Some of the Best Golf in the Midwest! Branson, Missouri is quickly becoming one of the most popular golf destinations in the United States. There are now more than a dozen courses for golfers of every caliber, and there’s not a better way to enjoy the magnificent scenery of the Ozark Mountains. And these wonderful golf courses are all within “driving range” of Branson’s shows. One of the newest courses, designed by Bobby Clampett, The Payne Stewart Golf Club is an 18-hole course named for the late, great golf pro Payne Stewart. He was from Springfield, Missouri, and the course honors his character with plaques at every hole. Branson Creek was named a “Top 100 in America” by Golf Digest, this 18-hole championship course has been described as “playing two different courses” because of the elevation difference; the front nine plays the valley, the back nine plays the ridge. Many courses stay open year-round with reduced rates (November through March) and discounts for afternoon play during hot weather, for multiple players and in combination with lodging packages. Most of these courses can accommodate tournaments and corporate special events, and offer private instructions by appointment. Ladies love golfing in Branson, too. Several of the courses are shorter, and many are designed for all skill levels, including forward tees, greens with open fronts, few forced carries and multiple tee boxes. The Branson Area Golf 34

Trout Fishing on Lake Taneycomo

Jet skiing

Swimming in Bull Shoals Lake

The Branson/Lakes Area is well known for its three pristine lakes: Table Rock, Taneycomo and Bull Shoals. Water sports enthusiasts can swim, water ski, wakeboard, tube, boat, sail, scuba dive, jet ski, parasail, kayak and, of course, fish. The lakes’ waters never freeze, welcoming visitors’ activities year-round. All three lakes offer resort lodging, camping and picnicking facilities and easy access to the water at a number of public marinas and boat docks/launch areas. Several commercial docks offer fishing guide services and a wide range of boat rentals including ski boats, pontoon boats, bass boats and wave runners. Many of the resorts on the three lakes offer guide service, rental boats and private dock facilities for visitors’ boats as well. For information about dinner and sightseeing cruises, and other attractions on the lakes, visit www.ExploreBranson.com.

Table Rock Lake Accessible from multiple public and privately-owned locations just minutes to the west of Branson, Table Rock Lake has been delighting visitors and residents alike since it was formed by the damming of the White River in 1959. While visitors can find dozens of places to stay and play along the banks of Table Rock Lake, the area’s commercial developments have placed a high priority on preserving the scenic beauty of the natural shoreline, bluffs, forests and wildlife.

36

Fishing Table Rock Lake Missouri’s deepest (200 feet) and clearest reservoir, Table Rock is nationally recognized as a top bass fishing lake. Large numbers of largemouth, smallmouth, Kentucky spotted bass and white bass thrive in its diverse underwater structure and immense forage base. Bass, crappie and large bluegill are caught in abundance. Catfish of all sizes also roam the lake bottom. For a seasonal fishing guide to Table Rock Lake, see page 40. Many area resorts and marinas can hook you up with an experienced fishing guide, and there are dozens of regional and local tournaments held on Table Rock Lake each year.

Table Rock Lake • 43,000 to 52,300* acres of surface area (* depending on the water level) • 857 miles of shoreline • Table Rock Dam and Powerhouse completed in 1959 • The dam is 6,423 feet long and 252 feet high.

Lake Taneycomo Accessible from many points, including downtown Branson, Rockaway Beach, Forsyth, Powersite, Hollister and the Fall Creek area, Lake Taneycomo was formed with the completion of Powersite Dam in 1913. It was originally a section of the White River, and although Taneycomo is now technically a lake, it retains the look and feel of a river. When Table Rock Dam was completed at Taneycomo’s headwaters in 1959, the nature of the lake changed. Taneycomo’s water now comes from the bottom of Table Rock Lake, making it a cold water lake. The cold, clear water, stocked annually with approximately 750,000 rainbow trout, makes Taneycomo a world-class trout fishery. Resorts and full-service public marinas offer canoeing, kayaking, fishing boats, motors, guides, tackle and pontoons for relaxing and fun-filled lake activities.

Fishing Lake Taneycomo The uppermost portion of the lake is reserved for artificial lures only such as tiny jigs and crankbaits. These headwaters are also ideal for fly fishing with flies that imitate the freshwater shrimp and other natural bait that trout feed upon. The locals say the best way to catch trout is by drifting salmon eggs or angleworms. Affix the eggs or worms to a small hook and cast into holes with an ultra light rod and reel. This method used from a drifting boat or from a dock will yield a nice stringer of trout. Lower Lake Taneycomo harbors a well-kept secret. The downstream area closer to Forsyth offers considerably warmer water and many other species of fish, making Taneycomo a versatile and challenging destination for anglers who are aware of its changing character from one end to the other. Fishing guides are available to help you make the most of your Lake Taneycomo experience.

Lake Taneycomo • 2,000+ acres of surface area • 40+ miles of shoreline • 58 degrees - average water temperature • 750,000 + rainbow and brown trout stocked annually

“Lake Taneycomo is one of the best, if not the very best, tailwater trout fisheries in the United States.” – Phil Lilley, Owner, Lilley’s Landing Visit us at ExploreBranson.com ■ 1-877-BRANSON

Carriage Ride

Historic Downtown Branson is located just east of US 65 along the shores of Lake Taneycomo. This is where Branson got its start around 1888 and the city was incorporated in 1912. Fires and floods couldn’t stop the fledgling community from growing and developing along the banks of the White River. The community was rebuilt more than once to provide for the needs of the area and its citizens. Today, Historic Downtown Branson is reminiscent of a century-old village with its preserved and restored building facades, tree-lined brick sidewalks and Victorian lamp posts with hanging floral baskets. The sidewalks feature memorial markers that bear testimony to some of the city’s favorite citizens. A magnificent mural recreates the buildings which once stood along Commercial Street. The Historic Owen Theatre has been recently renovated to welcome new acts and entertainers once again. A variety of affordable shops and stores, free trolley rides throughout the historic downtown with the flavor of an old-time Main Street, a mid-20th century train and depot, vintage horse-drawn carriages, live entertainment, Ozarks music, choices of restaurants ranging from Level 2 steakhouse at the Hilton Convention Center Hotel, Dino’s 24 Karrot Cake Cafe, the elegant Bleu Olive to the Farmhouse restaurant. Fudge, homemade candy, snacks and more are all within easy walking distance. The 1906 restored railroad 42

depot is now home to Branson Scenic Railway, which offers rides through the countryside in authentic 1950’s luxury passenger cars. Visitors from near and far will find a unique shopping opportunity in Historic Downtown Branson’s 80 retail establishments. A Historic Downtown Branson landmark celebrating 50 years in 2011, and still family-owned and operated, Dick’s 5 & 10 is a one-of-a-kind retail store that offers hours of shopping and browsing entertainment for all ages.

A marina near the lakefront campground serves trout anglers and recreational boaters all year ’round. Lake Taneycomo is a premier fishing locale that offers visitors the opportunity to spend a relaxing day sightseeing or fishing on the water. Downtown Branson is rich in lore with 19 historic sites.

The Baldknobbers

A Marvelous Beginning For more than 100 years, the Branson/Lakes Area has been attracting visitors to the Ozarks, lured by natural beauty and outdoor recreational activities. The first family attraction to draw visitors was Marvel Cave (beneath the property where Silver Dollar City theme park is currently located). First called Marble Cave because its limestone walls were thought to be marble, the cave was described by geologists in the 1860s and explored in the 1880s by adventurers who lowered themselves on ropes 200 feet into the main chamber. Scientific American magazine described the cave in 1885, and word of the natural wonder spread throughout the continent. Canadian mining expert William Henry Lynch read of the cave, purchased it sight unseen, traveled to the Ozarks and, with his two daughters, opened the cave for public tours in 1894. On the advice of his physician, minister Harold Bell Wright traveled from his home in Kansas to the Ozarks in 1898 to seek a more suitable climate for his health. He stayed at the homestead of John and Anna Ross, whom Wright later immortalized as the characters Old Matt and Aunt Mollie in his best-selling novel “The Shepherd of the Hills.” Published in 1907, the book told the story of the self-reliant and stoic hill people he encountered in the area and of the wooded valleys, the mountain “balds” and the incredible cave he had seen. The book was a huge success. Millions of copies were 58

sold in several languages, and four movies were filmed, including a 1941 version starring John Wayne, in his first Technicolor film. Wright’s novel has become the fourth most widely read book in publishing history. Following the publication of “The Shepherd of the Hills,” local residents began noticing a great influx of visitors. Many came to the Ross homestead. The Rosses eventually sold their homestead to Miss Lizzie McDaniel of Springfield, who began presenting the very first dramatization of Wright’s story, right on the front lawn. When Ozark Beach Dam (also called Powersite Dam) was built in 1913 near Forsyth and Lake Taneycomo was created, the area became quite a haven for outdoor enthusiasts who came to fish, boat, swim, hunt and enjoy the rugged beauty of the Ozark Mountains. Travelers flocked to the Ozarks on the newly-built White River Line railroad that stopped in the neighboring town of Hollister.

1950 - 1969 TV Shows and Hydroelectric Power The area first gained national prominence in the entertainment industry in 1954 when Red Foley, a legendary country singer with 38 top ten hits, moved to Springfield, Missouri, from Nashville, Tennessee, to host “Ozark Jubilee,” one of the first successful network television shows. In 1959, the area was changed forever with the completion of Table Rock Dam. This brought much needed power to the area, spurring the growth of many area

businesses. Until 1959, Rockaway Beach, located just a few miles east of Branson on the banks of Lake Taneycomo, had long been a playground for America’s rich and famous with movie stars and U.S. presidents among those who retreated to the small resort community. Construction of a dam created Table Rock Lake, nationally renowned for bass fishing and water sports. In addition, the cold water from the bottom of Table Rock Lake that was now flowing into Lake Taneycomo changed it into one of the country’s most popular trout fishing lakes.

Branson’s First Families of Entertainment Baldknobbers Jamboree In 1959, Mabe brothers Bob, Bill, Lyle, and Jim began performing twice a week in a converted roller skating rink on the Lake Taneycomo waterfront in downtown Branson. The brothers combined popular country tunes with Ozark Mountain music and threw in a dash of comedy to entertain audiences. In 1969, the Baldknobbers, as the brothers called themselves, built a theater on Highway 76, making their act the longest continuously running show in Branson today.

Shepherd of the Hills Homestead & Outdoor Drama A few miles east of Silver Dollar City, Dr. Bruce Trimble and his wife, Mary, began staging an outdoor pageant in 1959

based on the best-selling novel “The Shepherd of the Hills.” The amphitheater was actually located on the site where the models for author Harold Bell Wright’s characters lived. Under Mary, her son Mark and his wife Lea’s direction, the production grew into one of the nation’s most popular outdoor historical dramas. In 1985, Gary Snadon (school teacher and former cast member of the outdoor drama) along with his wife, Pat, purchased the homestead. They added the 230-foot tall inspiration tower in 1989, and in 1990, had the Morgan County Church relocated to the homestead to signify the churches where Wright once preached. Today, the Shepherd of the Hills is the longest-running outdoor drama in the world and boasts a cast of more than 80 actors, dozens of animals, pyrotechnical displays and authentic props and sets. The Sons of the Pioneers perform in a chuckwagon dinner show on the Homestead grounds.

Silver Dollar City In 1960, the long-term plans of Hugo and Mary Herschend came to fruition with the opening of a small, old-time Ozarks village attraction atop the long-popular Marvel Cave, about 10 miles west of Branson on Hwy. 76. They called it Silver Dollar City, and it offered an 1880s steam train ride, demonstrating craftsmen, themed shops and music. The first year, it drew 125,000 people. Following Hugo’s death, Mary and her sons Jack and Peter continued to direct the growth of the family business, Visit us at ExploreBranson.com ■ 1-877-BRANSON

and by 1963, Silver Dollar City was Missouri’s top tourist attraction. In 1967, Silver Dollar City received national exposure when the popular “Beverly Hillbillies” television show filmed five episodes at the park. The company later expanded to include other popular Branson attractions: White Water water park, the Showboat Branson Belle and Celebration City theme park. Today, Silver Dollar City has grown into a multi-million dollar entertainment complex with thrill rides and attractions, shows, dining facilities, dozens of musicians and an evening music show with a professional cast. The park also hosts six themed festivals each year. In 1998, Silver Dollar City was given the Applause Award by the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions as the top theme park in the world. The family-owned company, Herschend Family Entertainment, currently owns, operates or partners in 19 properties in nine states. In 2004, Jack and Peter Herschend were inducted into the Hall of Fame of the amusement industry’s largest organization worldwide, the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions.

Presleys’ Country Jubilee In 1963, the Presley family began a music show at The Underground Theater near Talking Rocks Cavern in Kimberling City with special guests from “Ozark Jubilee,” including Red Foley. They made history in 1967 when they 60

built the first music theater on Hwy. 76. Today, Presleys’ Country Jubilee stars four generations of Presley family members including three original members of the show: Lloyd Presley and his sons Gary and Steve. Together with other cast members, they perform a variety of musical styles on a wide range of instruments, and do comedy skits.

The Burdette Family Cloggers performed with the show from 1977 until the late 1980s when Bob retired and sold the theater to The

On December 8, 1991, the popular “60 Minutes” TV program proclaimed Branson the “live music capital of the entire universe.” There were only 22 theaters in operation. Today, Branson has more than twice that many, due in part to that turning-point proclamation. Many agree that “60 Minutes” launched Branson into a new era of growth by revealing to the world the wonderful playground of fun and entertainment this small southwest Missouri town had become. Performers, visitors, developers and new residents flocked to see what was going on. Throughout the 1990s, Branson not only saw tremendous growth in the number of theaters, but the number of hotels, motels, Bed & Breakfasts, lakeside resorts, restaurants, attractions, shopping malls, condominium and housing developments, service businesses, and healthcare facilities grew proportionally as well. Big Cedar Lodge, Pointe Royale, Thousand Hills, Holiday Hills and Top of The Rock added resort and golf amenities to the area. Branson Creek Golf Course opened in 1999 and received top honors by industry publications such as Golf Week and Golf Digest, including being ranked in the Top 100 courses in the nation. Silver Dollar City made several expansions in the 1990s including the addition of a children’s water attraction called Geyser Gulch and dozens of shops, restaurants and theatrical events. The City of Branson and Taney County undertook major infrastructure projects in the 1990s to accommodate the influx of new visitors and residents. Over the past 10-plus years, the City has invested more than $40 million in road improvements, making it easy to get around town.

SAFE BOATING TIPS Tip # 1 Grab a life jacket and wear it. Accidents happen too fast on the water to reach for a stowed life jacket. Don’t just carry a life jacket, wear it. Children 14 and under are required to wear a life when on board in Missouri. It is also a good idea to wear one while on the dock. Don’t be a statistic, 90% of those who drown while boating were not wearing a life jacket. Encourage your friends and family to put on a life jacket. The new styles are comfortable and lightweight. Life jackets only work if you wear them. Tip# 2 It doesn’t take much alcohol to make a boater lose his/her awareness of the surroundings, cause operator inattention, or careless/reckless operation. For those affected by alcohol or drugs, pick a sober operator. Adjust your speed to the conditions. Watch for bad weather. Look to the west for big wind shifts or listen to an AM radio station for static. If you have a marine radio, switch to the weather channel. Make sure your boat complies with federal requirements. For a FREE vessel safety check by a qualified Coast Guard Auxiliary, contact Tom at 417-338-6093.

Tip# 3 Attend a safe boating class. You will benefit even if you are a seasoned boater. When you pass this class most insurance companies will reduce your premium. To sign up for classes call Gibson Tech at 417-272-3271. If you were born after January 1, 1984 in Missouri you are required to pass a safe boating class to operate a boat.

Tip# 4 Before leaving in your boat, file a float plan. While fueling close all hatches, doors and portholes. If you use portable tanks take them off the boat to be fueled. Before docking or undocking, plan the procedure in advance. Be aware of your wake because you are responsible for injuries or damage you cause. Because the Coast Guard recognizes personal water craft (PWC) as full fledged boats, they must adhere to the same rules and regulations as larger boats.

The Branson/Lakes Area Chamber of Commerce and Convention & Visitors Bureau represents a primary service area referred to as the Branson/Lakes Area. The cities and towns within the primary service area are located in Stone and Taney Counties, and include, but are not limited to: Blue Eye, Branson, Branson West, Forsyth, Galena, Hollister, Indian Point, Kimberling City, Kirbyville, Notch, Reeds Spring, Rockaway Beach and Taneyville. Branson is centrally located in the Lakes Area and serves as a great home base for ventures into neighboring towns. We encourage you to check out all the opportunities for fun and exploration throughout the Lakes Area. Springfield and Carthage, Missouri, and Eureka Springs, Arkansas, make great day trips from Branson.

Springfield Springfield is Missouri’s third-largest city and home to the Missouri Sports Hall of Fame, the Springfield Cardinals AA baseball affiliate of the St. Louis Cardinals major league baseball team, Jordan Valley Ice Park, Juanita K. Hammons Hall for the Performing Arts, the Springfield Conservation Nature Center, the historic Landers Theater and more. The national headquarters for Bass Pro Shops is located in Springfield. Guests can browse at the original Bass Pro Shops Outdoor World sporting goods store and boating center, visit the hunting and fishing gallery, gaze at the giant aquariums and enjoy a meal at Hemingway’s Blue Water Café, all located inside the giant complex. Located adjacent to Bass Pro Shops is the Wonders of Wildlife Museum & Aquarium, currently closed for major renovations. Wonders of Wildlife is expected to reopen in 2011. The Discovery Center of Springfield is a place for families to interact with hands-on learning for kids of all ages. Visit these other notable sites: Fantastic Caverns (a 50-minute guided tour following an ancient underground riverbed filled with massive formations), Wilson’s Creek National Battlefield for Civil War buffs, Dickerson Park Zoo, Wild Animal Safari and The Laura Ingalls Wilder Home and Museum in nearby Mansfield. Springfield Convention and Visitors Bureau (800) 678-8767 www.springfieldmo.org

James River A beautiful 30-minute drive west of Branson is the historic James River. Named after one of the first settlers in this area, the river had been a favorite Native American camping site for thousands of years. In the early 1800’s, several of our earliest pioneer settlements were located along the river, drawn by the clear, pure water and abundant fish and wild game. Early in the 20th century, the locals invented the “jon” boat. These long, narrow wooden boats were very 100

stable yet easy to maneuver in the shallow, swift current of the local rivers. To experience the natural beauty of the Ozarks where float fishing was invented, go to visitmo.com

Eureka Springs, Arkansas A short drive southwest of Branson 50 miles into Arkansas will take you to Eureka Springs, the only town in America where the entire downtown is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Eureka Springs has 63 springs within the city limits and more than 100 springs just outside the city. Originally founded because of the belief in the healing powers of the springs, Eureka Springs remains a charming, Victorian village with more than 230 streets that wind around the hills leading to picturesque Victorian-style bed and breakfast inns, art galleries, gourmet restaurants, wedding chapels, public parks and numerous specialty shops. The town is home to more than 250 Victorian painted lady houses, bed & breakfasts and historic buildings such as the historic 1886 Crescent Hotel and Spa and the 1905 Basin Park Hotel. More than 200 local artists and crafters offer a wonderful array of paintings, sculptures, mobiles, fountains and jewelry inside dozens of downtown shops. The Great Passion Play, named “America’s #1 Attended Outdoor Drama,” presents the epic of Jesus Christ’s last week on earth and features a cast of hundreds in an outdoor drama performed from the last Friday in April through the last Saturday in October. Other on-site attractions include the New Holy Land Tour, Christ of the Ozarks Statue, Bible Museum, Sacred Arts Center and more. Greater Eureka Springs Chamber of Commerce (800) 638-7352 or www.eurekasprings.org

Buffalo National River, Arkansas The Buffalo River National Park begins as a trickle in the Boston Mountains of northwest Arkansas and our country’s first national river flows 150 miles to the east through the Ozarks and into the White River. The Buffalo River is considered to be one of our nation’s last significant naturally-flowing rivers in regards to its size, wild qualities, Karst formations and associated natural, scenic and historic resources. The Buffalo River National Park offers hiking, camping, hunting, fishing and canoeing and has designated trails and wilderness areas. Horseback riding is also permitted in small groups and on the owners’ horses.

Hollister The town of Hollister shares the shores of Lake Taneycomo with its closest neighbor, Branson. The downtown district is well-known for its Old English village look. (Cont.)

Day Trips ■ 1-877-BRANSON ■ Visit us at ExploreBranson.com


The main street of town is Downing Street. A new entertainment district is under development featuring Wilderness in the Ozarks resort, southwest Missouri’s largest indoor/outdoor waterpark.

Forsyth The Taney County seat is popular with those who enjoy fishing, boating and hiking. The town offers a variety of camping facilities, resorts, shops and restaurants.

Rockaway Beach Rockaway Beach, the first “Family Resort Community” west of the Mississippi River, was founded in 1917. The small, friendly lakeside town is 10 miles northeast of Branson. With a one-and-a-half mile shoreline stretching along Lake Taneycomo, fishermen come to enjoy one of the top Rainbow and German Brown Trout fishing lakes in America. Legend has it that years ago Al Capone vacationed in Rockaway Beach during his heyday. You can see his alleged hideaway across the lake from downtown.

Lead Hill, Arkansas – Ozark Medieval Fortress Have you ever dreamed of medieval castles? The real strongholds of the past built with extracted stones, felled oaks, and hand-forged tools. Based on an original and unique project with roaring success in Europe, a hideaway in the Ozark Mountains region near Lead Hill, Arkansas, just

south of Branson, is being prepared for a socio-historic project. A team of historians and architectural experts, along with passionate and enthusiastic builders, is forming to build a genuine fortified castle, with 45-foot high towers, 6-foot wide walls, a drawbridge, moats, and stone walls surrounding the main yard using the techniques, material, and rules of the 12th century. Thirty masons, carpenters, and stone carvers dressed in authentic garb will work all year-round for twenty years, the time required to build the enormous castle. Ozark Medieval Fortress will be an entertaining, educational, environmental and scientific attraction park. A fun, emotional trip into the far past, an outdoor laboratory, a living history book.

Conservation Areas Conservation areas such as the 31-acre Ashe Juniper natural area, located approximately 11 miles southwest of Branson, surround the Branson/Lakes Area. The 181-acre Boston Ferry conservation area can be found about five miles north of Branson. Other natural areas include Shelvin Rock Access, Delaware Town Access, Hilltop Tower Site, H.L. Kerr Access, Wire Road Wildlife area and the Jessie Hollow Conservation Area. Department of Conservation (417) 895-6880 www.missouriconservation.org

Where memories become traditions... Big Cedar Lodge isn't just about the scenic views of the Ozark Mountainside, Table Rock Lake or the authentic furnishings found around every corner.
