I grew up going to my family lake house on Lake Rathbun (Iowa) every weekend. I have seen countless sunsets over enormous lakes. I truly have never seen such a beautiful sunset over a more magnificent lake before. Definitely worth the trip!

I'm not exaggerating! Lake of the Ozarks is so big (1300 miles of shoreline) that if you like lots of activity you can go to the Bagnell Dam Strip area, or if you want a quiet fishing spot, you can go roughly 40 miles upstream...More

This huge winding lake is just breath taking. Scenery, wildlife, fishing, camping. All kinds of stuff to do around the area.

Great place for a couples get away, if you like boating, water sports, golf, shopping or just a relaxing time this area is for you. Accommodation abound with locations close to the lake and in nearby towns which surround the lake. See you there

Having never been to Lake of the Ozarks, I was thoroughly impressed with the area - the quality of the accommodations, the food, the local attractions and so much more. I stayed in three different places - Alhonna Resort, Old Kinderhook and Rainbow Shore Resort....More

There is something for everyone here. It's January and so nice we are touring the dam. Summer is the best time to visit. There are still lots of mom and pop motels around and the big resorts too. It's easy to rent a boat or...More

We are looking to rent a house and would like to find out if the area it is in has calm waters or rougher waters like the main channel. I'll give you what I know about the location and hopefully someone will be familiar with the area. Thanks much! The house is at mile marker 20.5 located on Apple blossom circle. It is in the Osage Beach area. There will be no children on the trip but definitely want calm, clean waters for swimming and pontoon boating. Thank you again for any information you have

That's a pretty good location in a cove off the main channel. Some good coves close for skiing and fishing. Located very close to the Redhead for entertainment. Lots of good restaurants close too.
