Things to Do in Lake Ozark

Because Lake Ozark is a lake town, there are plenty of beach activities to take part in. Take a relaxing day at the lakefront where you can enjoy warm weather and tranquil scenery. There are a few lodges around the lake which are also worth a visit.

The main beach area of Lake Ozark is called Osage Beach where most of the activities can be found. Make sure to visit the Swinging Bridge for a fun adventure across the swampy river. It is a sturdy bridge but is perhaps a little scary for very young children. The Bagnell Dam is a historical site to visit and learn about the waterways. The Bridal Cave and the Stark Caverns are also very popular destinations to visit. If you had enough of adventures and just want to have fun, Timber Falls Waterpark, Lemans Fun Park and Big Surf Waterpark await you.

Elsewhere, Ozark Distillery and many vineyards are open all year round for visitors to tour and taste the local beer and wine. For a nice sunny day Ha Ha Tonka State Park is an excellent choice for hiking. It offers a wide range of flora and fauna, and also features a 20th-century castle ruin. There are also plenty things for the little ones, such as the Funny Farm petting zoo and water activities like boat rides on Lake Ozark. The downtown area of Lake Ozark offers many restaurants, coffee shops and dessert places to indulge in.
