Norfork Lake is a beautiful, large lake that crosses the border between Arkansas and Missouri. Springfield is a little over 100 miles away from the Missouri section.
The Springfield-Branson National Airport is around 115 miles away, and the Baxter Regional Medical Center is around 30 miles away in Arkansas.
