Spring weather can be unpredictable in Missouri but no worries about that at the Lake of the Ozarks! If it is sunny and 85 degrees and the Lake is calling your name, many outdoor safe adventures await at HaHa Tonka State Park which offers miles of beautiful hiking. Or hop on the Lake and make family memories while fishing with kids or grandkids along the scenic shoreline. Have the camera ready for that smiling face while they hook a nice bass this great fishery is known for.

Raining, no worries, take the family and explore one of the many show caves the Lake of the Ozarks has to offer.

The Lake also offers live entertainment venues presenting national and regional acts and year around special events like the 73rd annual Dogwood Festival, Spring Harbor Hop, Lake of the Ozarks Marine Dealers Spring In-Water Boat Show, Magic Dragon Street Meeting Nationals and so much more.
