If you are traveling with boat this parking lot does not favor over 25' boats. State park is about five miles away with an excellent launch. Worldmark does not have a launch but they do have slips. Try to arrive on time or early to get a slip. State park charges $5 to launch and park tralers.
The outlet mall is the best we have ever shopped at so far. Golfing in the Ozarks is great. I entered the Rotery outing at Four Seasons, which was a scramble outing. Our team took first place. Wow, that was great. Our mid-iron man hit the pin three times. Our team was put together by the people running event, so we did not come loaded with big sticks.
Eating out here is endless either by boat and driving. Two of our stops by boat are always the Horny Toad and Backwater Jack's. We own at Four Seasons Golf and Racquet Club, so we try to exchange so we can stay for two weeks. Have fun and be safe on the lake.

Our resort had a "get to know your neighbor" meeting on the first morning we were there. It was very nice to meet the other people staying at the resort. We got to hear where other people were from, a little about their home resort (if they were doing an exchange), and also about some of the local attractions from people that this was their resort or come here often.
Our resort host also gave us a brief overview of the area along with several sights to see and do in the area.
We ended up going to the Bridal cave tour, which was very interesting.
We went up to Ha Ha Tonka State Park and had a picnic lunch and spent the day playing on the playground equipment and walking some trails.
We checked out the Bangel Dam and some of its history and also went over to the Wilmore Lodge.
We drove down to Branson one day just to get an idea of what it was like. While we were there, we checked out some of the other timeshares for future exchange destinations. Because we were there after Labor Day, it was not near as crowded. We stopped at one of the small amusement ride places and we were escorted around by an employee to each ride. Our daughter was the only one on the rides! It was nice. She loved it.
Of course, we had to check out the outlet mall. We are not big shoppers, but it was a nice, clean place to walk around and look.
We did take some back country driving in and found an old suspended bridge. I couldn't convince the wife it was safe to cross on foot - let alone in a car!
We also drove around the lakeshore in kind of our own scenic tour of some of the other resorts. There is a lot of construction going on along the lake.
All in all, a very friendly, clean place to visit. We were lucky to only get one day of rain, the rest was great sunshine.
