1. Our Lake is the Best Recreational Lake in the Country!

In 2016, the Lake of the Ozarks was voted the #1 Recreational Lake in the Country by USA Today readers. The large reservoir from the Osage River offers visitors more than 1,000 miles of shoreline. The Lake is part of Missouri's biggest state park and is a popular vacation destination for people of all ages. From fishing and boating to swimming and watersports, there's something for everyone to enjoy! There's plenty to do on land as well, including golf, shopping and dining.

2. Centrally Located, The Lake of the Ozarks Makes the Perfect Meeting Place!

If you're looking for the perfect place to gather with friends and family, the Lake of the Ozarks is it! Located middle of Missouri and the middle of the country, it's easily accessible from all over. You can drive here in just one day from anywhere in Missouri and many areas in the surrounding states. If you're coming from the coasts, we have several airports in Missouri to choose from. St. Louis and Kansas City are both just a 3 hour drive to Lake of the Ozarks, or fly into Springfield or Columbia for an even shorter drive.
