Vacation in the Ozarks!  We had no clue what that would mean to us eleven and a 1/2 years ago.  Basil and I came to Table Rock Lake on a fall vacation and fell in love with all the beauty the Ozarks has to offer.  The rugged rocks, foot hills and I must mention the cleanest lake we had ever seen.


Not only is it beautiful the Ozarks has a ton of things to offer the vacationer.  I would like to start with the natural beauty because that is what caught my attention in the first place.  Table Rock Lake has the most beautiful shore line.  Towering trees, Rock cliffs and small islands to dock up to.  The lake is kept very clean every year with a lake clean-up weekend.  The volunteers are of all ages and work together to keep this area at it’s best.

The area Caves, Talking Rock Caverns, with thousands of beautiful natural living crystal cave formations of many different kinds, colors, and textures.  All ages will love to visit and see the beauty beneath the earth.

Then we have the 2,200 acres slice of Ozarks paradise.   Dogwood Canyon has so much to offer.  Walking, biking and tram tours.  Trout fishing and horseback riding.  Something for everyone and you can make a day of it or stay in one of their cabins.  

Come see for yourself the beauty the Ozarks has to offer you.

Come to get away from the hectic work week and recharge your batteries in the Ozarks. Your sure to find something you’ll enjoy doing and make a point to drink in all the beauty around you.

Gen 1:28 God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air and over every living creature that moves on the ground.” When God delegated some of the authority to the human race, he expected us to take responsibility for the environment and the other creatures that share our planet. Enjoy your stay in the Ozarks and please take care of it for a future visit.
