In 2016, Ha Ha Tonka State Park was ranked as #1 on Trip Advisor for "top things to do in Lake of the Ozarks". If you've ever been, you know why. If you haven't, what are you waiting for? This park features more than 15 miles of trails leading to lake access, caves, natural bridges, sink holes and a bluff-top castle. This is the place to go for any nature enthusiast. Enjoy the changing of the fall leaves, or the budding of spring flowers at one of the most beautiful places around. Don't miss a changing season - this park is open year round!

Not into the outdoor scene? No worries, there are plenty of cozy Lake of the Ozarks venues to check out that you won't find anywhere else. Ozark Distillery is a local family owned business that hand crafts their special "Ozark Moonshine" along with several other flavored Moonshines, Vodka, Bourbon, and Whiskey. Stop by anytime of year for a tour and tasting. They love sharing their story of how they make their hand-crafted spirits! Not into spirits?

Don't forget about the other great shopping areas at the Lake, like Prewitt's Point Shopping Center or the Stonecrest Mall just off Osage Beach Parkway.


While year round activities and events are great, what about the school districts? School of the Osage has been rated as "Accredited with Distinction in Performance" by the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education.
