View, History, Pictures

Great Lake of the Ozark view from their patio. Truly panoramic. The museum gives a good history of the area and the building of Bagnell Dam. We bring all our guests here. It is a must see. 30 minutes will do the trick. Must get your picture taken with the awesome view and another picture for fun in the King and Queen chairs.

A Must Stop
Aug 2020 • Couples
Great place to stop and see history - and a view. The building of the dam is spelled out and the history of the area pre-dam. The views from the lodge are great - but don’t stop there. Take the walk down to the gazebo (that walk is very steep) for more views and to see the gardens.

Visit down memories past and history of the area
Jul 2019
I love history and Willmore Lodge has the history of the lake and building of the Bagnell Dam and history prior to that as well. I grew up in the area and it is nice to see this information preserved in a way that is appealing. The view of the lake is beautiful. I live out of state now and to see the preservation of historical details is wonderful. It is definitely worth the stop to visit.

Call before you go

We drove to see the Willmore Lodge but it was close because of COVID19. I rated it average because it was a required field for the review, but we were not able to tour. We did take a walk around the grounds and it is need of of serious landscaping maintenance.

Take the family

Every time anyone comes to visit we take them to the lodge to see the view and visit the museum. Thank you for keeping this place free as it's a great spot to take the family.

The Willmore Lodge is the history of The Lake. If only its walls could speak!!
Jun 2019
We go to the Willmore at least once a season and sometimes more if we have out-of-state guests. The volunteers do a remarkable job of taking care of this structure that has such great meaning to all of who love the lake. The view is awesome, the museum is filled with wonderful memories of the lake's history, and the volunteers are always helpful.

Scenic, cozy

This log home is a warm, inviting place, with a great view of the Lake of the Ozarks. Includes a small museum that provides a description of the history of the Lake and the surrouding area. A nice brief side trip - educational.

Informational, Relaxing, Historical Jewel!
May 2019
I really enjoy coming to Willmore Lodge every now, and then! Being a local, we sometimes forget a lot of the history behind our wonderful lake! This is a great way to refresh the mind, learn new information, and be in a comfortable and exceptional environment! The lodge, itself, is beautiful! Very rustic, yet comfortable to tour the museum (which is free for all), go out on the patio and have a great view of the lake and dam, to relax within the lodge, and more! There is a trail to go to a gazebo which has a very nice overview of the dam, lake, strip, and a view all the way to mile marker ~3! Amazing for both locals, and tourists. I would definitely recommend!

Great starting point for visit to Osage beach
May 2019
Willmore lodge is a very well maintained and free facility that gives lots of background informaiton about the Bagnell dam. The displays tells a well illustrated history from the beginning of the dam and would be of interest to many people from engineers, ecologists and local historians. The grounds are beautiful and a good place to eat lunch (bring your own) as nothing for sale at site. Definitely come here before visiting the dam as there is more to see and lots of other information about the area. There were only a few other people there when we visited and I regret not spending longer. Good parking and toliet facilities.
