too little time, so many things to see!

We only had a week for visiting friends and a handful of sites below while in NW Arkansas and SW Missouri. Since we parked at our friends house, we didn’t explore the many RV parks scattered every where. There are plenty to pick from, but I did see some a little too close to the highways.

This was one of the most relaxing and fun trips I can recall. We did not get to see Pea Ridge Civil War museum, didn’t get into Branson, didn’t explore Bentonville and the Walmart family art museum, nor Crystal Bridges, but we had a great time and places to come see on the next trip!

Views of Beaver Lake. Lake view properties, fishing, boating, relaxing!

This couple used a camera on a pool pole to preview where to place the house, what they didn’t expect was a full 270 degree view to the lake. Could not have happened to a nicer couple!

amazes me when the water is that much warmer than the air

Branson Belle Showboat on Table Rock lake, awesome feat to get it built at the lake. Great show, great dinner.

  1. Enjoyed your post. We stayed at Table Rock State Park in Missouri a few years ago and really enjoyed it. We stayed in site 127 which is one of the full hookup sites. There is a nice walking path around the lake. It was a great location to explore the Missouri side of the lake and we even took in a Branson show while we were there. I think there are also a couple of Corps of Engineers parks on the lake.
