Labor Day Weekend - First time at Lake Ozarks from Chicago

Me and my bf will be driving down from Chicago to Lake Ozarks, stopping for a night in Jefferson City and then staying at Tan-Tar-A Resort and also at The Lodge of Four Seasons.

Having never been to the Lake Ozarks, I want to relax and have fun at the lake but we are also on a tight budget (cheaper the better!)

I've looked up free things to do but if I can get tips/advice/recommendations on where to eat, where to go from people who've been there, done that, I would really appreciate it! Most likely we can't afford to rent a boat but I'd like to go kayaking or canoeing if there's cheap but reputable places that won't over charge us?

Additionally, having never driven down from Chicago to Missouri, are there any good stopping areas to check out?

Thanks in advance =)
