The Branson/Lakes Area is  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 don't freeze, welcoming visitors' activities year round. The Stone Castle Hotel and Conference Center has ample parking above the hotel for guests who wish to bring their boats and gear for a day on the water.

All three lakes offer easy access to the water at a number of public marinas and boat docks/launch areas. Several commercial marinas offer fishing guide service and a wide range of boat rentals including ski boats, pontoon boats, bass boats and wave runners.
