Great Escapes celebrates grand reopening, new amenities

On May 24, Great Escapes Branson RV Park and Campground celebrated a grand reopening, with a ribbon cutting ceremony beside their new water park. Members of several area Chambers of Commerce were on hand for the honors, and festivities and grand opening activities continued throughout the Memorial Day weekend.


Local area residents may have driven past the RV park, located at 210 Shoals Bend Blvd. just off St. Hwy. 76 in Forsyth, and wondered what was going on behind the large fence erected several months ago. Wonder no more—that fence surrounds what staff describe as “45 acres of fun,” including a new water park centered around a huge Wibit—a floating obstacle course of slides, bounce pads and more. A separate new resort-sized pool has also been constructed, along with a new bathhouse and laundry facilities; a new campground store and offices are nearing completion.


Camping facilities include 176 campsites ranging from rustic tent sites and basic RV sites, to full-hookup sites, and premium executive RV sites. All sites include picnic tables, fire rings and grills. No RV? No problem! There are also several cabins in different sizes, suitable for groups of four to 12 people; or for a unique experience, try one of the Glamping Wagons! Featuring a 19th-Century look with 21st-Century conveniences including a king-size bed, twin bunk beds and private bathroom with shower, the wagons comfortably accommodate four people.


In addition to camping opportunities, a day use fee of $25 allows for enjoying the park amenities and activities. The park is pet-friendly, as both the resident camp Corgi, Stella and the Great Escapes brand mascot, Biscuit, will attest. Fun activities are available every hour all day, including games, wet wagon rides, trivia challenges and more.


Great Escapes Branson is just a short drive from Branson attractions while providing a relaxing, rustic feel away from the busy traffic, and also very convenient to some hidden treasures of the Bull Shoals Lake area. For more photos and booking information, visit
