Missouri's 92-mile-long Lake of the Ozarks is a prime watersports destination, but vacationers who venture offshore will also find interesting history and geologic wonders. Start your Lake Ozark vacation at Lake of the Ozarks State Park, with two swimming beaches, horseback riding, hiking and boating trails, and guided tours of Ozark Caverns. In the nearby Bagnell Dam History Museum at Willmore Lodge, you can discover how this artificial lake was created. Then head south to the Osage Beach Premium Outlets for some shopping. Stop at Tonka Hills Restaurant for down-home cooking as you pass through Linn Creek en route to Ha Ha Tonka State Park to see a natural bridge and large springs. Accommodations range from rustic cabins to sleek condos to houseboats. Rent a houseboat at the Lake of the Ozarks Marina near Camdenton, Missouri. Bass Point Resort in Gravois Mills, Missouri, offers lakeside cabins for rent. Full-service mega-resorts with amenities galore include Tan-Tar-A Resort, Lodge of Four Seasons, and The Country Club Hotel & Spa.
