Holiday at the Lake of the Ozarks

Orientation

Missouri's largest stretch of water

The Lake of the Ozarks is a recreational region bordering a large reservoir in Central Missouri. It is a popular tourist destination offering plenty of natural beauty and outdoor activities. The lake itself stretches for 93 miles from its starting point at the Bagnell Dam and is split into different areas such as Horseshoe Bend, Grand Glaize, and Gravois Arm. The largest settlement is Osage Beach located on the lake's southeast arm.

The Lake of the Ozarks - where water is magically contained

The Lake of the Ozarks was created when the Bagnell Dam, opened in 1931, stopped the flow of the Osage River. With a surface area of 54,000 acres and a shoreline measuring 1,150 miles, the lake provides plenty of space for everyone to enjoy the recreational activities. The serpentine shape of the lake earned it the local nickname of 'The Magic Dragon', a name reflected in local events such as the Magic Dragon Street Meet when hundreds of vintage and veteran vehicles are shown off.

Getting there

The nearest commercial airport is Lambert-St. Louis International, approximately two hour's drive away. US Route 54 along with Missouri Routes 7 and 134 provide easy access to the region.

Activities

A destination for drivers

With a vehicle the wonderful scenery of the Lake of the Ozarks can be explored fully. Head up to the Bagnell Dam Overlook for panoramic views of the lake and meander through the Thunder Mountain Conservation Area. Several museums dot the shores of the lake including the Miller County Museum at Tuscumbia and the Willmore Lodge Museum which documents the history of the dam.

A destination for water lovers

Renting a boat for a day or two is the perfect way of sightseeing and visiting some of the settlements and restaurants that sit on the shoreline. You can also admire some of the large and exclusive homes with their own water frontage. Boats of all sizes from kayaks and canoes, to speedboats and cabin cruisers, can be hired. Please note: drinking while in charge of a boat is not permitted and the lake is regularly patrolled.

A unique wedding destination

Bridal Cave is hidden away under Thunder Mountain and is said to be an earlier site of Native American wedding ceremonies. Today, it can be booked as a romantic and unique venue for your wedding ceremony while the Lake of the Ozarks provides the perfect honeymoon destination. As well as getting married here, there are also plenty of things for visitors to see and do.
