We have always heard about Lake of the Ozarks and finally made it here for vacation! It's a pretty lake. It was quiet for us over spring break but I can imagine it getting wild over the summer when crowds come!

I grew up going to my family lake house on Lake Rathbun (Iowa) every weekend. I have seen countless sunsets over enormous lakes. I truly have never seen such a beautiful sunset over a more magnificent lake before. Definitely worth the trip!

At Bagnell dam scenic lookout. It is located at the end of the dam. Look for the sign. Sunset is beautiful up there with no trees in your way.

There are many resorts and campgrounds around this huge lake. With a wide range of prices and amenities. I would check with the chamber of Commerce in Osage Beach or Google cabins and campgrounds on Lake of the Ozarks
