Jump into Ozarks fun
You’ll never be bored at Missouri’s Lake of the Ozarks, but you might be a bit overwhelmed. The 1,100-mile shore of the lake–actually a reservoir–winds in so many directions that locals liken it to a twisted dragon.
But Lake of the Ozarks’ shape and size also explain its broad appeal. However you like to de-stress, the lake tempts all your senses. Roar along in a speedboat or dangle your legs from a dock; hike in a state park or buy fudge on the Strip; admire bluff-top mansions or slip away to a mom-and-pop resort.
Our traveler-tested tips on the following slides show how to enjoy these essential experiences at this hot spot. Just open your eyes, cock your ears, and turn up your taste buds.
