  • It was a recreation center. Shopping, boating, trekking and hiking, golf. You name it, Lake of Ozarks have it. I spent multiple weekends visiting this place. If you are a landscape photographer, it's scenic beauty captivates you. Bridal cave is a special attraction and a must visit place. I have been to multiple caves but it is a unique experience at the Bridal cave. The Premium outlet mall is great for shopping. November and December is a great time for awesome discounts. Lot of cuisine options. Well maintained and Clean. If you are visiting St. Louis and have some spare time, don't miss it. I would suggest you to be there for a good weekend to enjoy the beauty.
  • Absolutely beautiful vacation spot. With long winding roads, cozy lakeside neighborhoods, and friendly natives, Lake of the Ozarks is a wonderful place to visit. Not much to do during the winter, but the views alone are worth a visit any time of the year!
  • All the locals are great and so friendly. Very reasonable rental costs. Lots to do and see.
  • I love living here. Beautiful views and environment. Schools in the area are amazing too
  • If you are a boater, there is no better place to be. A large main channel that accomodates large boats as well as speed boats. There are plenty of small quiet coves to tube and water ski. Cliff diving, beaches, and camping can all be found here. Also, there are plenty of resorts and condos for longer stays.
