  • For our trip to Lake of the Ozarks, we decided to stay at the cabins inside the park. We did this primarily because it was mid-October and the cabins come with both electric heat and, if you want, a w...  read more »
  • We chose to hike the Lake View trail. The hike starts in the campground and encircles the campground. Easy trail but hard to find the trail head. Drive past the airport, look for the campground entran...  read more »
  • We hiked the Lake View Bend trail which took us along the lake and campground. Some of the trail is rocky with elevation changes and some is across flatter terrain. Great hike and easy to follow the c...  read more »
  • This place was amazing. A few things though. Print off a map of the park before you go, as it can be a bit like a maze driving around and GPS doesn't work in all areas. The actual park is quite LARGE and you have to drive around it to get anywhere, as you cannot drive through it. Bring an inflatable camping mattress if you want to sleep. The "mattresses" that are provided are nearly as hard as sleeping on the floor. Even a memory foam-type something would help. The cabin itself is quaint and you will leave with good memories. A note about cabin 3. It is far, FAR from the bathrooms/parking. And it's downhill from parking so for anyone who is not necessarily handicapped but not fit or has any sort of pain or is elderly, I'd recommend cabin 1 or 2, in that order. I'd also recommend a bucket for any females staying in cabin 3 and yes, that is serious. A middle-of-the-night trek to the bathroom would not be a welcome idea. The saving grace about cabin 3 is its seclusion and view. You can see the water from the porch. You can also hike down to the water (not a beach and not a place for swimming) and there is a trail that goes along the water in one direction, and into the woods in the other. It is an advanced hiking trail, though, so beware of that. A walking stick can prevent tripping mishaps. It was a great experience. I will stay in cabin 2 next time, though. The cabins are very bare but that's nice. There is only one light in them, so camping lanterns are a must. I would highly recommend.
  • Wonderful place that puts you out in nature. Lots of trails to explore. Wonderful sleeping options like camp grounds, cabins, and yurts.
  • I really enjoyed my group using the group camp. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes, the mattresses were thicker than many camp sites, and the location itself was quite beautiful. We did have many people with ticks, and the site is very long.
  • I go there every year with my in-laws and it is one of the most beautiful place I have been there is so much to do from water sports to go-carts and golf both mini and normal and the views are to die for,and nothing better than watching a storm over the lake in the state park
  • I enjoy spending a lot of time here. The park is well maintained. Bike trails, hiking trails, horse trails. Covered pavilions for group gatherings and campgrounds.
