Hi Ronnie and Ginger,
There is no way to get to Branson without those pesky hills. We will be in Branson the last week in October through the first week in November. First the bad news. The shortest but heart stoping route is to get on route 65 and go North to Branson. From just North of Little Rock into Branson the road goes up, down and around. The road also goes through numerous small towns with traffic lights and right and left turns. The quality of the road is good. It is the up, down and around the I greatly dislike. FYI, if you have read any of my posts on this subject, you know I am biased against route 65.
If it was me, I'd go East and take I55 North to Route 60 West (in Southern Missouri). In Springfield get on Route 65 South into Branson. That being said, from Springfield South to Branson, there are hills. However, these hills are taken on a 4 lane road.
You didn't ask, but I'd recommend the KOA in Branson. They are about a mile or two from the strip. Very convenient. Stay away from Shenanigans RV Park. The CG is nice, but with a 40 foot 5ver, getting in and out of the CG would be an adventure.
We've been the Branson sevetal times, if you have any questions, post here or PM me.
