Boating

Table Rock Lake boating

800 miles of shoreline to explore.

Table Rock Lake boasts 14 public marinas and 24 public boat launches, making a day on the water easy and accessible.

If you're trailering your own boat, you'll find parking at most launches.  Many of the lakefront resorts provide daily slip rentals for their guests, boat launches and trailer parking.  Click here to check out Table Rock Lake resorts. 

For visitors who want to enjoy the water but may not have their own boat or prefer to not travel with a personal watercraft you'll have no problem finding the perfect boat or watercraft rental at one of our Table Rock Lake marinas.  Most have fishing, sport, and pontoon boats for rent, and some, have rental fleets that also include stand-up paddleboards, jet skis, powerboats, plus water skiing and wakeboarding equipment. And, with more than 43,000 acres of beautiful blue water, the lake offers plenty of room for everyone to enjoy their favorite watersport without impinging on anyone else’s fun.

Choosing the perfect marina for you and your group depends on what you plan to do during your Table Rock stay. Most of the marinas offer extended hours from late spring until early fall, but some may be limited from October through April, so be aware of their operating hours.

Be Weather Aware

The Springfield, MO office of the National Weather Service is the best way to stay updated on local weather conditions around Table Rock Lake. Storms can pop-up quickly, and when they do its a best practice to take cover as soon as possible.  Your cellphone might not work everywhere on the lake, so consider investing in a marine radio. You’ll be able to access channel 16 (official emergency channel) to seek fast help whenever needed. Boat-to-boat and other communications should be directed to another channel. If possible, get a marine radio with NOAA weather alert capabilities.
