We have been going to the Lake for 25 years and never taken the time to stop in here. Should have done it a long time ago. Interesting museum and lovely building. Take a few moments and stop by this very worthwhile place.

Lodge is impressive but very little of the actual lodge is open to visit. Great history of the building of the dam in the depression and the towns that were flooded. Nice old pics.

If you like history, especially about the Bagnell Dam area, this is a great place to tour. It's a free will offering and a lot to see and read about the building of the dam.

We enjoyed our visit to Willmore Lodge. It was very interesting and informative. It gave us an incite into how the Lake Ozark area came about. The lady at the reception was very friendly and tried her best to answer any questions we had.

Historic Wilmore Lodge is well worth a visit. The lake view is spectacular from the deck and large picture window. The museum gives you a nice history of Bagnell Dam and the region. Staff members were particularly pleasant and helpful with suggestions on what to see and where to eat.

This is an informative and well done museum of the history of Lake Of The Ozarks in a beautiful environment. The lodge and surrounding deck and path to the lake are beautiful.

Beautiful view and interesting historic building. Allow 15 - 20 minutes to walk about and enjoy the building and views. There is a room with tourist info, and someone on staff who will answer questions. Our boys enjoyed playing checkers at the checkers table in front of the large windows facing the lake.

Museum of how they built Bagnell Dam is extremely interesting and the Lodge is a beautiful building to see. The fall colors are awesome to behold from this location as well.
