If you’re looking for an easy on-the-water experience don’t forget to check out the Spirit of America. It’s a 48-foot catamaran that conducts regular tours. You can even help the crew sail the ship! Don’t worry! You’re not obligated to help. If you prefer to just sit back and relax you can do that too. The Spirit of America is great for people who want to get out on the water but don’t necessarily have a ton of experience operating a boat. Tours happen everyday at noon and 2 p.m. Reservations are highly recommended.

“Great Place for Fun on the Lake!”

Check out the full review below.

“The State Park Marina is a great place to go for fun at the lake. Whether you have your own boat or jet skis and just need a place to launch them into the lake or possibly need to rent a dock slip or a place to purchase gas for your boat. If you don't already have a boat or watercraft you can rent them here at the State Park Marina. Their prices are great and Table Rock Lake is one of the best lakes in the area.”
