Explore Lake Ozark from a local cabin rental

The city of Lake Ozark is where the lake begins, and Lake of the Ozarks cabins here put you at the heart of everything the area has to offer. Just around the corner from your rental cabin, you'll find attractions for couples, vibrant nightlife, and family fun. From water parks and family amusement centers to wineries and party coves, it's all waiting for you in Lake Ozark. When you're not touring the sites, you can enjoy cabins with gardens, outdoor barbecues, and more to keep you relaxed and entertained, regardless of your budget, group size, or the reason for your travel.

 
Things to do

Think a wedding in a cave is crazy? You'll reconsider

If you're ready to plunge into the past, visit the Willmore Lodge Museum, a 29-room log cabin completed in 1930 as an administration building for Union Electric. Now, the lodge houses the history of the region, telling the story of the Osage River that empties into the Lake of the Ozarks, the construction of the nearby Bagnell Dam, and the development of the lakeside community. Then, take your friends, family, or romantic partner to Bridal Cave, where guided tours lead past interesting rock formations. You can even book a stalactite-adorned "chapel" for your wedding.

Activities

Give yourself a break and get on the lake

Lake Ozark's key attraction is the lake, of course, and favorite activities for both visitors and locals revolve around the water. Rent a jet ski or a kayak. Take your boat out. Try parasailing or paragliding. If the lake ever tires you out, you are welcome at Lake of the Ozarks State Park, a leafy-green wonderland with 12 trails available for hikers, bikers, and horseback riders, plus picnic areas and campsites. Oh yeah, and the lake is here, too, so all those watersports still work.

Weather

Weather that doesn't need to go to extremes

Lake Ozark's humid continental climate is always influenced by, you guessed it, the lake. Summers are hot and humid, perfect for fun in the sun and on the water. Just keep a lookout for thunderstorms. Winters are cold, with lows in the teens and 20s, but the lake effect takes the edge off the chill. Spring, summer, and fall are the best times to take advantage of all your Lake Ozark vacation rental has to offer, but you can save some green and have a more tranquil trip to the beach if you book in winter.

Natural features

Don't bat this little guy out of the sky

Your Lake Ozark vacation rental will be comfy and serene, and the lake is often placid. Still, the wilderness around you is full to bursting with wildlife. 58 species of mammals call the riverways around the Lake of the Ozarks home, including deer, bear, otters, mink, and muskrats. The many caves in Lake of the Ozarks State Park make perfect homes for bat species, and the area has one of the last big populations of the endangered grey bat. If you see one of these furry friends, let him be.
