Lake of the Ozarks is a Family Vacation Destination

Fun at Missouri’s Lake of the Ozarks

Missouri’s Lake of the Ozarks has more shoreline than the state of California and activities all year long for people of all interests. Lake of the Ozarks is a family vacation destination in central Missouri, about two hours southwest of St. Louis and two and a half hours southeast of Kansas City.

Created in the 1930s as the Osage River was impounded as a source of hydroelectricity, the Lake of the Ozarks was once the largest man-made lake in the world. With more than 1,150 miles of shoreline and 54,000 acres of water, there is a lot to see and do all year long.
