Branson, MO

We are thinking about going to Branson. I checked previous posts, but all seem at least a couple years old. Does anyone have any recent experience and recommendations as far as show, cg's, restaurants, etc.?

Lots of entertainment, try to see if you can get 2/1 coupons. We have friends that have lived there nearly 30 years and the natives get extra discounts and perks the visitors don't get. Traffic in the summer can be a test of patience so get information on how to bypass the downtown especially in the evenings. Lots of tour buses holding up traffic. Silver Dollar City has good entertainment. On the line at the top of the page use the "Search" function and just put Branson in the search. It Is the line across the top that starts with "portal" on the left side. The other search is for Google, you may want to take a look there also. I wish I could remember the little restaurant we went to, great food, not much space to park a car out front, away from downtown, for breakfast they had a pancake that 4 people could eat from. Check the Branson Tourism web site to see what entertainers are in town when you plan to be there.
For campgrounds/RV resorts you might want to first check .

Highly recommend Old Highway 86 campground (Corp of Engineers park) south of Branson. You can see some pics from this past weekend under the thread "Where are you camping for Easter". The show SIX is very entertaining.

The ONLY bad thing about Branson is the traffic, otherwise the entire place is GREAT for family entertainment, good eating places, etc. Silver Dollar City is a must see. You will definitely have a great time and will not be disappointed.

We're planning a trip there later this year in early October. We have a reservation to stay here: INDIAN POINT, MO - Campground & Camping Details - ReserveAmerica - [NRSO].

We're still researching show information but found this site helpful: Branson Show Schedule

This site is also pretty useful: Top 30 things to do in Branson, MO: Branson Attractions – Find what to do today, this weekend, or in April - TripAdvisor

Hope you have a great trip!

I'm heading down first week in May. I got my SDC season pass and bring a friend coupons. It's been a few years for me so I'm really looking forward to it. There are lots of things to see and do down there and many we do "once in awhile". Last time we visited the pierced arrow deal. I really enjoyed it. The time before Dixie Stampede. It was pretty good too. We always stop at Dicks though.

The Showboat Branson Belle lunch or dinner show is always great. The Dixie Stampede Dinner and Show is excellent too but if you have a phobia about using your hands to eat dinner you might want to reconsider.
The last time we were in Branson we took in the show Le Grand Cirque. I thought it was excellent and well worth the money.

We used to like Silver Dollar City campground but it is tight if you have a large camper. The last time we stayed it was at Acorn Acres campground. It was in the fall and very pretty. The people that worked there were very accomodating and parking was easy, we had a pull through site. I have been there many times and my favorite reason for going is to visit Silver Dollar City.
