TripAdvisor's Top Things to Do at the Lake

#1 Ha Ha Tonka State Park

Imposing architecture and breathtaking scenery combine to make Ha Ha Tonka State Park one of Missouri’s most treasured spots. Located on the Lake of the Ozarks, the park features the stone ruins of a turn-of-the-20th-century castle built by a prominent Kansas City businessman high atop a bluff. More than 15 miles of trails traverse the park, leading visitors to sinkholes, natural bridges, caves and down to the lake.

#2 Ozark Distillery 

Ozark Distillery is a small family-owned business making Handcrafted spirits in small batches. We use time honored methods to produce a Corn Whiskey Moonshine that is smooth and sweet with a light corn flavor and aroma. Using distilled corn spirits, we infuse natural flavors such as real apples, blackberries, and vannila beans to produce our Flavored Moonshine.

Once capturing the astonishing views, riders have the option to take pleasure in a variety of free fall dips. You can select from a relaxing dip that just allows your toes to touch the water or a thrilling free fall that gets you soaked!

#4 Bridal Cave

Rated as one of the most scenic caves in America, Bridal Cave features giant columns, delicate soda straws and massive draperies throughout the cave. Guided tours leave every few minutes and last approximately one hour. Tours are conducted over concrete pathways through the Cave's refreshing 60 degree environment.  Park interpreters will lead you and your family through room after room of incredible mineral deposits. Millions of years of struggle between water and rock have created this cavern with more onyx formations than any other known cave or cavern. A tour through Bridal Cave is a family adventure you will never forget.
