Owner description: 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.

It was a little hard to find the correct address to put into Google Maps, but I did a little sleuthing and figured out that if you type in “Out Post Road, Kaiser, MO”, that will get you where you need to go. I would still suggest arriving before dark if it’s your first time there, because it’s easy to... More

Best place is to be by the water which is all the way to the end of the campground. I believe they call it campground 4. We stayed in campground 1. No sewer but there is a drain and place to fill your freshwater tanks as you come in. Bathrooms/showers are nice. Almost all sites are wooded. Deer just strolling... More

we are tent campers and though this park wouldn't be my favorite spot ( I like the national forests better cause they have more privacy) I enjoyed my stay.Most of the camp ground was empty so it had that isolation feel I love so much.I highly recommend getting a reservation before camping as a great many sites are reservation only...

This park is HUGE! and quite beautiful. It was quiet and serene, being at the far south end of the area's water, away from the busy tourist spots. We were able to get a nice site with a peaceful water view. Easy walk over to the beach for a refreshing float. The trails are challenging. Volunteer hosts are friendly and... More

We stayed 4 nights over Labor Day weekend and had a blast. We had site 121 and it was perfect for popup and/or tent because it is across from the shower house and the park. There were a ton of barking dogs but we are noticing that at many state parks these days. Some of the sites back right up... More

Highlight of our trip. Beach #1: Warm, swimmable water, shallow, fun small waves from faraway boats, nearby restrooms, not crowded despite weekend Canoe rental: Very affordable, in good shape, enabled us to paddle near amazing limestone cliffs (they do expect you to know what you are doing so have someone who has canoed before with you)

They have yurts for rent that appeared accessible to all. Lots of wonderful trails, we don't have horses but lots of folks were there with their... More

We love to camp, hike, backpack and often stay in stay parks, tents, and have also stayed in yurts before. It was nice that the yurt had a couple of lights, microwave, tiny fridge, and locking door.... More
