Summer Events at Lake of the Ozarks

Summer is in full swing at the Lake, and vacationers galore have descended on the Midwest's playground.

This summer, however, got off to the strangest start of any in remembrance—thanks to coronavirus—and many events that Lake visitors looked forward to were postponed or cancelled. Mark the Spring In-Water Boat Show, Spring Harbor Hop, and AquaPalooza under "Cancelled due to Covid," along with several major concerts at Ozarks Amphitheater and myriad other more niche or smaller events scheduled for April through June.

However, there's plenty to do on—and off—the water at the Lake for the rest of the summer. LakeExpo put together a list of events that are still a "go." Check it out below.

(Note: it's possible events may still be cancelled, so always check the event website or Facebook Page before making your plans and before attending.)

Lake of the Ozarks Reopening

Due to COVID-19, many of the Lake area's favorite family-oriented attractions either temporarily shut down or delayed their opening dates for the season. Here's the scoop on what's opening and when!

Big Surf Water Park -- tentatively opening early June

On April 28, 2020, Big Surf Waterpark President, Darin Keim announced on their Facebook page that due to the safety and wellbeing of their guests and employees and to comply with the current social distancing guidelines set forth by the State of Missouri, they anticipate delaying the opening of the 2020 season until early June.

Camdenton City Park -- Open

Camdenton's City Park is open: that means bathrooms, tennis courts, the basketball court, disc golf, and playgrounds. The city pool will open May 23: pool employees will be offered masks, and the pool will be kept at 50 percent capacity.

City sports leagues will start practicing May 18, with games from June 8 – July 30, including a July 4 holiday break. Social distancing rules will be in effect for sports leagues, including kids using their own bats, gloves, helmets, and more.

"This was all approved by the health department," City Administrator Jeff Hooker said. "The park is really important to the people of the community to get outside." Hooker added the city is asking families to take extra care to practice social distancing norms while they are in public spaces.

Osage Beach City Parks -- partly open

Osage Beach's two city parks are open to visitors, but the playgrounds are currently closed and some amenities are unavailable. All park amenities will return to normal operations and be available for reservation effective May 18. Playgrounds will remain closed until further notice.

Osage Beach Parks and Recreation youth leagues will begin practices on May 18. Coaches will be contacted the week before and will contact parents for their practice schedule. Games will begin June 8. Games will be over by the end of July, regardless of rain outs, etc. Changes to facilities and some game play will take place for social distancing requirements.

Jetz Trampoline Park -- reopened May 5

Miner Mike's  and Buster's is the Lake's premier, 50,000 sq ft indoor family fun center features exciting rides, challenging games, simulators, and indoor go-kart track, and great food.

Putt 'N Stuff -- reopened May 3

Putt 'N Stuff, the historic mini golf course with go-karts and bumper cars (the only location at the Lake), decided to close for business due to COVID-19 on March 23, 2020.

Lake Area Carry Out Restaurant Options

Lake of the Ozarks restaurants are making adjustments in light of the coronavirus crackdown: they're offering more ways for people to enjoy their food, without coming in.

It's tough for restaurants at the Lake, especially, as they are coming to the end of their traditional "lean months," in the locally seasonal, tourist-driven economy. So we scoured Facebook pages and websites, and made phone calls, to pull together this list of restaurants at the Lake and what they're offering, as potential customers avoid large gatherings.

Old Kinderhook: A Lake of the Ozarks Winter Wonderland

It's no secret that the Lake of the Ozarks is a party destination in the summer season. It's also well-known that there's plenty to do even in the off-season! But what's less-known is just how much is happening during the holidays.

There are tremendous light displays all across the lake, and many ways to enjoy them. But for those who prefer daylight, Old Kinderhook is the place to be! This lake resort goes all out for the holidays, bringing in a whole Christmas Village and ice rink to convey the holiday cheer.

That's not to say they slouch on the night display, but this fantastic ongoing event brings so much family-friendly fun during the day you can't help but focus on it. Sleigh rides, ice skating, pictures with Santa, Mrs. Claus and the elves, hot chocolate, ornament decorating; the list goes on and on!

Held through most of December, the Christmas Village has just about all of the holiday activities you can think of! Check it out here for the full details, and have a very Merry Christmas!

Thanksgiving at Lake of the Ozarks

Thanksgiving is always a special time of the year. Family and friends coming together to celebrate all of the good things in their lives, finding things to be joyful about over a hearty meal, traditional or not. While often glossed over in the excitement leading up to Christmas, this holiday is no less important a tradition in the United States.

The traditional meal held in remembrance of that first gathering of pilgrims and Native Americans in a rough time for those early colonists is a great start for those of us today, but many take it a step further. This grand tradition has seen a great many twists and turns through the years. Looking at those various changes, tweaks, and additions is a fantastic way to reflect on America itself. We are truly a melting pot of cultures, coming together as a greater whole, and most of our holidays reflect that!

Whether your meal will be a traditional one, or some new fusion of the old and the new, we want to you to remember the history, the value, and the meaning of this great holiday. Be thankful for everything we have, be thankful for those around you, and be thankful for the food. We know we are! But mostly, we are thankful for you, our family, our friends, and our clients!
