Planning a fun family reunion is hard, but planning one worth having doesn’t have to be. You could call up the distant relatives, spend hours tracking them down on Facebook, meet up in a park somewhere and enjoy some soggy deli sandwiches while forcing the kids to talk to their third cousins twice removed over a game of corn-hole and bribe the teenagers to smile for the big family picture.
Or, you can gather the family in Table Rock Lake, sit back, and watch the family come together organically.
If you’re looking to gather the whole family for a mountain cabin getaway, but can’t convince everyone to take the cross country drive to the alpine forests of Colorado, you’ll want to reserve your stay at Watermill Cove. The warm, cozy cabin vibe you’ll find here will scratch that mountaintop itch while giving your family an amazing pool complex (complete with a splash pad, waterslide and lazy river) to enjoy and easy shoreline access. Once you dry off, you can enjoy the fire pits built with large groups and s’mores in mind, shuffle board courts, playgrounds, canoes and kayaks.
With lodges and villas that contain up to 11 bedrooms, you and your extended family will be able to enjoy each other’s company while still having some room to sneak away to relax.
No family reunion to the Table Rock area would be complete without catching a show at the Sight and Sound Theatre. Reserve your tickets now for Noah, which runs through the end of the year. This production goes above and beyond, filling not only the stage with live animals but the aisles as well.
If you’re looking to feed your army, turn to a Table Rock Lake favorite and call in some pizzas from Pizza By The Chef or some Mexican food from El Lago. Whatever your preference, you are far better off putting your dinner in the hands of one of Table Rock Lake’s locally owned and operated establishments.
Table Rock Lake may be known for all the fun you can have on the water, but sometimes to catch the best attraction, you have to look up.
Now, you may not think of Go-Karting as an “airborne” activity. But The Track takes all the thrills of go-karting and stacks it four stories high! You can enjoy the classic rumble of the Lumber Jack or the Wild Woody and the smooth slopes of the Heavy Metal high-rise, all from the safety of family-friendly go-karts. Have a little speedster in the family? Make sure you check out the Kiddie Go Kart track, perfect for kids as young as four years old.
If you’re still looking to feel the wind blow through your hair, head over to Silver Dollar City to experience all the thrills and adventure your party can handle. Fret not, there is something for every level of Adrenaline-Junkie in the family; from rides perfect for kids, to fun activities and eye-popping loops.
Table Rock Lake has more than 800 miles of shoreline—that’s more than the state of California! With Five Star House Boat Vacations, you and the family can cruise as many miles of it as you’d please, or post up in a quiet cove and enjoy the tranquility that you can only find on such a massive lake.
The kids will love the waterslide that drops them from the top deck into the crystal clear lake. And what could be more relaxing than enjoying a 6 person hot tub while you cruise in the amber dusk of a Table Rock sunset?
You can even invite those second-cousins-twice-removed. Five Star’s houseboats can sleep up to 16 people comfortably, and come with all of the amenities you’d find on shore. Don’t want to miss the big game? Fret not, the boats come with satellite TV. Have a family chef? Enjoy the full kitchen and grill.
If your chef is looking to take a break, coast on over to the famous Catfish Hole Table Rock Lake to order up some of the best catfish and fixins you can find. Beyond the catfish, you’ll have your choice of award winning menu items and legendary hushpuppies. One visit and you’ll see why the Catfish Hole is a favorite among visitors and locals alike.
