We chose to camp in the sunny area higher on the hill and nearer to the clubhouse and activities center. Our campsite backed against a tree-shaded park (not Sunterra’s). Lake access is limited to the marina and trout dock in the northeast corner of the park, where you can also rent a pontoon or fishing boat and buy bait, tackle, and a fishing license. Lake Taneycomo’s reputation is excellent for trout fishing. But there’s no shortage of water, even if you don’t count the lake, as pools and ponds abound, with even one stocked with fish next to a laundry house. Curiously, we were unable to locate Fall Creek itself on the grounds or even on local maps.
Fall Creek Resort buildings are interspersed with timeshare condos and a large section of privately owned RV estates with lots with mobile homes on them. There is the presence of a convenience store, gas station, propane station, and car wash near the entrance, plus the many amenities on resort grounds make Fall Creek more like a self-contained village. Though there’s plenty to keep you busy in Branson, you could come to this resort and participate in the nonstop daily and evening activities without ever setting foot outside, including meals and shows. Barbeques and all-you-can-eat buffets cost only $8 at Clementine’s, the resort restaurant. The show we attended was a ‘50s theme party featuring 2 hours of performances by 14 local entertainers (see entry below). This was really helpful to get a feel for the types of shows available in Branson. An All-you-can-eat spaghetti dinner, including dessert and beverages, came with the party. Cost per adult: $6.50 for dinner and the show. Other shows and events that week included a country legacy show, country dancing to a live band, cowboy poetry and songs, a "not-so-newlywed" game, and an old-time gospel church service on Sunday. Card game lessons, bingo, water aerobics, golf outings, crafts, free non-surgical face-lifts, and recent release movies were some of the many additional offerings at Fall Creek.
Clementine’s is open for breakfast and lunch buffets daily and prime rib on Saturday evenings. Games you can play at the resort are volleyball, basketball, shuffleboard, mini-golf, croquet, badminton, ping-pong, darts, and tennis. Equipment checkout for any of the above is free. For golfers, Fall Creek provides a voucher to Holiday Hills Golf Resort for $40 ($16 savings). No RV? No problem. Rooms at Fall Creek rent from $50 to $229 (for three bedrooms) nightly.

They have free dvd rentals, a mini-golf course, pleasant furnishings, and a very large resort. But, there is also a down side; they want to sell off their resort—even if you already have a time share. They will hound you and call you daily until you pay a visit to their sales representatives and, if you do not make a purchase, then they turn really nasty. It was a 1.5 hour slugfest and all they give you are a couple of tickets to some show, not worth your time since tickets to shows are relatively inexpensive. Another downside is that there are a lot of motor homes on site and I believe that they own them; it's great watching them from your balcony.
However, the resort is very pleasant even though the furnishings may be a bit old, and in need of an upgrade. There are plenty of shows and they are all for anyone 5 to 100. However, at times, I felt too young since I am 37 and most people were 50 and up. There is also very little to do at night in their off time. we tried to eat dinner late (10pm) and we really had to look for something; eventually, we found a Sonic Burger. The shows are much cheaper than in Vegas, but if you are not into country or gospel music, your selection is more limited, but there still are some choices.
If you like fishing and hunting then this is the area for you.

What we liked the most was the two screened-in porches (off both bedrooms); however, if you have younger children, that might concern you, since the second bedroom had a door to the small porch and another screen door to the landing and staircase (which worried me as a mother about the kids getting out).
They seem to have no large trashcans, and the parking lot left a lot to be desired.
