Lake of the Ozarks State Park has a little bit of something for everyone. Crave water adventure? Lake of the Ozarks has a full complement of boating options. Want a quiet place to hike or mountain bike? The park’s thousands of wooded acres have lots of places to get away from it all, with 12 trails that wind through the park. Cabins and yurts make the park a welcome place for families looking to enjoy the lake but escape the hustle and bustle of some of the nearby towns. And Ozark Caverns – complete with its lantern-light cave tour – presents an unforgettable experience.

We came here to do some hiking, and after 2 trails we decided to move on to Ha Ha Tonka. The trails just seemed average with nothing really great to see. We did see a baby deer, and one bluff that overlooked the lake, but honestly we preferred Ha Ha Tonka.

We visited Lake of the Ozarks State Park for the cave tour. It was great. We also enjoyed the local springs and simple beauty of the area. The staff were also friendly, knowledgable, and accommodating. The grounds were also clean and well kept. It is a nice place to visit and worth the trip!

Driving into this place, its not signed very well. No cell signal there either so couldn't get a map. We drove around for 75 minutes before FINALLY finding the cabin we had rented. That's the only bad thing... everything else was good. Got cell service in the cabin areas as well -- even thought not through much of the rest... More

Our family recently stayed at this wonderful State park. The first thing you will notice is the drive from the highway to the check in booth is over 2 miles. The camp site is an additional 2 miles which means you are isolated from the outside world - exactly what you want when camping. The park was laid out by... More

We enjoyed visiting the beach/swimming area. The drive through the park is beautiful. The swinging bridges were worth the drive. It was nice to get away from the busy area of the lake and have some less populated area to go to.

This was a fun experience with lanterns and guided tour into the cavern. Inside is an amazing natural feature you must see!! Tour took about 1 hour and was $10 per person. We personally felt that it was a good investment especially since it was about 100 degrees when we toured. Bring a sweatshirt if you'd like, it can get... More

My and my wife are here on our 5 year anniversary. I the cabins with a/c are fantastic. Unfortunately we picked one of the farthest cabins from the main ground where the bathroom are at. Between all of that and the ninja spider weds in our faces we still love it here. We are planing on doing all of this... More

Went for a big family get together and picnic. The shelter house that we went to was very big and had a nice big grill. Hiking trail right off of the shelter. found some cool rocks that looked like geodes and overall was a great day. Bathroom could have used some TLC.

we stayed on the hottest weekend of this year so far, but it was a great campground and the staff was super friendly. It was a challenge getting backed into the sites but once you are in it was great.

My friends and I camped here for a weekend and it was amazing. There were hardly any bugs (we were there late June) and the campground was well-kept and clean. They have nice bathroom and shower facilities and the campgrounds are right on the lake. Each campground comes with a firepit and grate, table, hanging hook, and driveway. We had... More
