Branson Lakeside RV Park expansion to offer enhanced camper experience

The city of Branson is expanding its Lakeside RV Park with larger sites offering more amenities. The Park is at 300 South Box Car Willie Drive, immediately south of the Branson Landing on the shores of Lake Taneycomo.


Branson Parks and Recreation Director Cindy Shook said that construction is well underway and, absent weather and unforeseen circumstance delays, anticipates that the $1.2 million expansion will open in the fall of 2024. Shook is excited about the expansion because of the enhanced experience it will provide campers and the increased revenue it will bring to the city. She says that the Park operates profitably, and its profits support the city’s parks and recreation programs. Without that revenue, more funding would have to come from the city’s general fund and increased user fees for the city’s parks and recreation programs. 


During a recent interview, Cindy answered questions about the expansion project. Below are the questions and her answers in Q&A format.
