Lake of the Ozarks State Park [MO]
Vistors can enjoy the solitude of an undeveloped cove, hidden along the shorelines of one of Missouri's largest lakes, Lake of the Ozarks. The 17,626-acre Lake of the Ozarks State Park offers this opportunity, along with a variety of recreational activities on the lake or on shore. The region lies near the middle Osage River, which was a vital resource to Native Americans, fur traders, and early homesteaders of central and western Missouri throughout the 17th to early 20th centuries; later in history, the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) worked to build many of the foundation structures that still give the park its character today.
