Such a Beautiful View

I attended Eagle Days this year. Even though it was snowy and cold, we had a wonderful time and saw several eagles.

This is a great place to visit to learn how Lake of the Ozarks came to be. The exhibit takes you through the process of building Bagnell Dam and the history of the lake.

This is a wonderful place to visit while you're at the Lake of the Ozarks. There's a museum here that explains how the dam was built among other things. Looking out the windows of Wilmore Lodge, the scenery is beautiful. Worth taking the time to visit.

We love going there and just watch the lake and relax for a bit. The museum has very interesting things about the building of the dam to read and see. Nice place to check out, but not to spend a lot of time in, as the museum is small, but you have to stop in to enjoy the yesteryear splendor.

My family stops at the Willmore Lodge every year when we visit the lake area. It offers beautiful views of the lake and the museum is very interesting for local history. The hours are limited - they are only open until 4:30PM each day, and 3PM on weekends, but if you can find time, it is worth the visit.

They have videos, letters, pictures and objects of the building of Bagnell dam. Great views of the lake and the history of the lodge itself and bagnell dam, You could easily spend hours in the museum with all that they have to see. It was a good time and very rewarding for anyone interested in history
