Top of the Rock

World-Class Attractions With a Spectacular Backdrop


Top of the Rock Sunset Ceremony

One of the most awe-inspiring moments you can witness while visiting Top of the Rock? Our signature Sunset Ceremony. Witness something truly magical as the sun sets on Table Rock Lake while a traditional bagpiper plays in the background. Then, just as the sun shows its final glistening light, you will hear a civil war cannon erupt as you raise your glass for a toast – concluding a moment that you will be able to look back on for years to come. Come join us – this Ozarks celebration takes place every evening at Top of the Rock.


Located at the highest elevation in Taney County, Missouri, Top of the Rock began as a bluff overlooking the Ozark Mountains and legendary Table Rock Lake. It now encompasses the world-class Top of the Rock Golf Course, the Lost Canyon Cave and Nature Trail, the Ancient Ozarks Natural History Museum, End of the Trail All-American Wine Cellar, three dining options, a Pro Shop, and the spectacular Chapel of the Ozarks and Jack’s Cabin.

Top of the Rock is rich with folklore and natural history. The keeper of the secrets of the mighty White River, it brings to life a mission to reconnect people to Ozarks heritage. Nature serves as the designer of record at Top of the Rock, including the winding Lost Canyon Nature Trail that leads to the summit.

$10 Top of the Rock entry fee for guests not staying at Big Cedar Lodge - guests will receive a $5 voucher per entry fee that is valid towards any purchase at the Top of the Rock.
