Enjoy the solitude of an undeveloped cove hidden along the shorelines of one of Missouri’s largest lakes. Swim, fish, boat or simply take in the view from a shady campsite or picnic area overlooking the Lake of the Ozarks. The park offers the opportunity to enjoy a variety of recreational activities on the lake, on shore or underground with a tour of Ozark Caverns.

Wonderful winter camping experience. Wood stove fire. Quiet cabin. Romantic atmosphere for a February winter weekend. Cabins do have microwaves and mini fridges. Can’t wait to try the cabin in the summer!

Wonderful scenery and lots of things to do. The State Park is very large with opportunities for water sports, hiking, etc. The lake is beautiful. Numerous options for food, lodging, fuel, shopping, etc. nearby.

I believe so. We didn't go out in the water because we didn't realize the lake was huge! Didn't hear or see any speed boats both nights/days we were there, so I don't see why not: )
