In the Florida GTG 2012 thread last month, there was some interest in a GTG at Branson, MO. Has that interest died a premature death? Branson is a couple hundred miles from us and would be a good introduction for us...being complete newcomers and novices at this "RV Thing", having bought that neat little toaster last month. We plan on making a trip or four over there this year anyway, for the first time not staying in a motel.

Branson is one of our favorite haunts for many years, lots to do and see.

Steve

Branson is only about 120 miles from our home.
Would love to see a gathering there. Believe everyone would enjoy Silver Dollar City and the shows at Branson. September would be a good time of the year.

The interest has not died but someone will have to take charge and plan the event. It is not difficult but does require some time. First thing is to pick a time and place to see who is interested. After you get an idea of when and what campground then you can call and see how to go about reserving a block of sites for the required number of people that you expect.

If you have any questions send me a PM and I will do what I can to help.

Liz and I are very interested in a Sep Branson event. If we had a bit more experience we would attempt to host. We've never been to Branson and we've only had the Barth for 2 years, so we're not experienced with the area or the hosting.

If some one knows of a good campground, has experience there, let us know. It would be great to see more Barth folks. cheers

The April choo choo GTG is shaping up nicely... 9 so far! Let's not forget Black Hills in June, oh boy! Thumbs Up

I think the fall is the time for this GTG. We might consider heading that way.

Kathy and I are very familiar with the Branson area, attractions and activities having visited many times over the past several years. My first time was probably 1965.

However, we just bought our first ever Barth and first ever RV of any kind last month, so we have no exposure to any of the campgrounds in the Branson area (or anywhere else for that matter). That said, if anyone has a favorite place please let us know what and where. Tripadvisor.com has a few good ratings, those being Acorn Acres, Stagecoach and Cooper Creek. Acorn Acres is handiest to Silver Dollar City, Stagecoach is handy to Table Rock Lake and Cooper Creek is on Lake Taneycomo just east of Branson.

The first half of September would be best for us also, since we plan on going to the Black Hills GTG in June and to Big Bend/Carlsbad Caverns in October. We will be going over to Branson beginning in April, so we will be trying out the RV parks there, but too late to help with the sheduling of this particular GTG.

We wouldn't mind trying to help with calls and such, but are really green to the process and may be worse than no help at all...

Cindy and I live about 110 miles from Branson. Like you... we are also new to RV's having buying our first one about 8 months ago. We have been to Branson a few times, but stayed in hotels. I recommend that we say closer to Silver Dollar City, which really is not too far from all the shows. Also recommed that we do this the week after Labor day to avoid huge crowds. I am willing to assist in some way.

The week after Labor Day would be great for Liz and I.

We've never been to the area, I'm sure any of the locations would be fine for us! Let's make this happen! Thumbs Up

Here is a suggestion for this one.

September 11, 12, 13, 14? That is Wednesday through Friday or Saturday, the week AFTER Labor (not the week OF Labor Day).

Silver Dollar City is closed after Labor Day during the week until September 12, when they start their Fall Harvest Festival. This is a family oriented theme park. They have some roller coasters and other rides, but unlike more traditional "amusement" parks, they have music shows, craftsmen demonstrations and a variety of shops. See the attached:

http://festivals.bransonsilver...n/default.aspx?id=11

The closest RV park to SDC with high user ratings is Acorn Acres. I have not called them yet, but can when there is some consensus on the schedule. Here is their website:

http://www.bestbransonrvpark.com/

There is a huge variety of entertainment in the Branson area...music, comedy, nostalgia, dinner shows, go-carts, ziplines, museums, etc. Show tickets are available all around the area and on-line.

Table Rock Lake (above the Corp of Eng dam) and Lake Taneycomo (below the dam) are nearby. There is a showboat that has dinner cruises on Table Rock Lake.

The whole area is a scenic drive. Traffic through Branson on Hwy 76 can be very congested at times, but they have several bypass routes which allow easy access around the area once you find them and figure out where they go.

What are your thoughts?

Steve

Those dates look good for Cindy and I. Also, I want to mention that Marvel Cave is a part of Silver Dollar City... with hourly tours. Goes down over 500 feet.

While on the journey from CA to Lou's hone in Michigan, we stopped at Fantastic Caverns which is not far from Branson. America's only ride thru caverns. There is a large room they call the auditorium which was a speakeasy during Prohibition and later a place for weekend entertainment. Buck Owen and the Presleys, who went on to start an entertainment venue in Branson, performed in the cavern before becoming big time. You ride thru on a jeep pulled tram.

I will add that the intersection you turn on to get to the place is narrow and drops off to oblivion on all four corners. It was the tightest my butt was the whole journey.
