Branson may not be the top destination that pops into mind when you start envisioning a summer beach getaway. But Branson has a few great spots where you can build sandcastles and dip your toes in the water. Don’t forget your sunscreen!

Moonshine BeachMoonshine Beach is a sweet spot of sandy shores along Table Rock Lake. No alcohol or pets are allowed on Moonshine Beach but there are picnic areas available for public use. The water is clear, and kids will love trying to catch the fish that live in Table Rock Lake. Pack a picnic and spend the day on this enjoyable beach in Branson.

You don’t need to camp here to be able to access the swimming and recreation areas for the day, although a small fee may apply per person.
