Camped In Section 1, (3 other sections avail with varied services) sites are blacktop, close together, some not very level. Lots of trees. Arrived on a Friday, no problem getting a site. Wonderful trails near the CG. Great staff. Restroom old, dated...did not use. We camped at Lake of the Ozarks State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Check out Bagnell dam overlook and the Willmore Lodge...interesting history. Ozark Lake area known for watersports, a resident said that in the summer there are approx 50,000 boats on Lake Ozark and on a holiday weekend, 60,000. Be sure to stop by Andy's Frozen Custard for a yummy treat! http://www.eatandys.com/

Nice state park with water access. Large park with over 150 sites. Nice roomy sites as at most state parks. Site had electricity, but no water or sewer. Make sure water tank is full on arrival. Dump station was very clean and well-maintained. We camped at Lake of the Ozarks State Park in a Motorhome.

We returned to this great MO state park for a 4 day stay in mid-June. Found the park to be very clean and busier than ever. Reservations are a must if you want electric. Or a site near the lake. Nice long, near level sites with plenty of room to relax under the many shade trees. No sites with water and sewer. Very clean and well kept shower rooms and bathrooms. Nice playgrounds. Great family spot. We camped at Lake of the Ozarks State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Lots of stores and shopping in Osage Beach, about 15 mi. from park. However it is an extremely busy tourist area. Best to have all of your food and camping needs on hand when you enter the park.

We camped here during the week as weekends are typically very booked.

This is an older state park with paved roads and sites HOWEVER it is very tight in some areas for a crew cab truck and 33 ft. fifth wheel! We found a half dozen places where it was impossible to pass without both the truck and trailer being off the road.

Several nice hiking trails will provide a variety of levels for everyone.

The lake is within walking distance of all sites and adjacent to many in the #4 area. We camped at Lake of the Ozarks State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

It is approximately 8 miles to the nearest grocery store or Wal Mart on narrow, curvy roads. Plan accordingly.

There is a camp store at the entrance but hours are very limited and selection is basic camp supplies.

Our GPS took us to the other side of the lake, durn. We liked this park, even though the sites are only electric, the bathrooms have free showers and are clean, even if a little dated. Had a raccoon come into camp to investigate our pooch, many deer and goose as well. Great place to stay and would do it again if in the area for sure. Fire pit could have been cleaner and sites are a little close in places. We really enjoyed our stay here! We camped at Lake of the Ozarks State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Some have said shopping is a ways out on curvy roads, which is true. The abundance and variety of shopping, however, is really good. Local grocery had everything we needed and had a good selection of wine and beer to boot.

Really nice site but wish it was a full hookup. It was electric only. We really like this campground. No parties, mostly families. No mosquitoes, very clean. Well marked campsites. We camped at Lake of the Ozarks State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Lots to do here. Playground, beach and trails. Fishing and boating. Beautiful area. Campsite is spacious and clean. Paved roads and lots and lots of deer on the road in. Poor cell service which can be a plus! Get directions in advance. Our phone navigation led us down a crazy dirt road that led to the lake not the campgrounds.

Lake of the Ozarks State Park is a large park with many campsites. There are a lot of beautiful sites right on the lake, however you need to make reservations early. Our site was shady and nice for just the two of us, but one side of the camper was very close to the neighboring site. This was the side away from our table and fire pit so it was not an issue when we were outside, however after bedtime it felt like we were right in the middle of their campsite since we were so close. For anyone wanting more primitive sites there are many large camp sites. Our restrooms and showers were clean and well kept, but one of the older facilities in the park. Sometimes we would use the newer facilities, but it was necessary to drive to there. This park has a couple of yurts in the camping area. Further away there are cabins. These take about an extra 10 to 15 minutes to get to. There is a camp store at this park where you can purchase some very basic supplies, fountain soda and ice cream but there hours are limited. Many trails are available. This year there were many deer to see. Be careful driving the curvy road into the park. Often we saw deer right on the edge of the road. The staff at this park were very friendly and helpful. Plenty of rangers and Missouri staff were around as well as many campground hosts. We camped at Lake of the Ozarks State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is a great state park--perfect for families. Lots of play space, good playground, a swimming beach, trails, etc. We have stayed here for many 3-5 day get-togethers with family. Always have plenty of room for extended family get-togethers. Usually stay near the water and fish right from our site. Lots of shade--so a good place to be on hot Missouri summer days. The only thing that would make it better would be to have water and sewer at each site. We camped at Lake of the Ozarks State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Park is about 20 min. from stores and shopping. Wise to stock up before getting to camp. Does have a small camp store for ice, fire wood and basic groceries.

Shower rooms are well cared for--cleaned morning and night. Good water pressure, plenty of warm water. Nice parking area at each one if you don't want to walk to the shower rooms.

This is a beautiful, large park located on the Lake of the Ozarks. The sites do not have full hookups but a dump station and fresh water are available. The pads are mostly asphalt although many were concrete. Some of the primitive sites were lightly graveled. Most sites are heavily shaded and fairly level.

Cell service was good at our spot (#37) but friends staying down next to the lake had no service. Television reception will also depend on the range of your antenna, altitude and trees.

The size of the lots is huge. They are well planned out and offer a large buffer zone between sites. The handicapped spots were very level, scenic and concrete paved.

In addition to camping, there are trails to hike, a boat ramp, horse rides and both covered and open picnic areas.

We had never been to this park before and were very impressed. There are a few state parks near our home and they are nice but do not offer nearly as many amenities as Lake of the Ozarks State Park. We camped at Lake of the Ozarks State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a beautiful park. The best sites are down on the lake but I needed Wi-Fi (no Verizon service) so I stayed close to the gate, where it is available. It's a huge park with trails and many camping loops. Would love to come back and stay longer to explore. We camped at Lake of the Ozarks State Park in a Motorhome.

Nice area, convenient to Lake, shopping, food. Friendly camp hosts, will assist in directions and info. WiFi only at front gate, or sites closest to same. We camped here before massive tourist rush, so was not crowded at all. When summer comes I would avoid. Bathrooms usable, but not as nice as should be due to Missouri state budget cuts. Rate reflects senior discount. We camped at Lake of the Ozarks State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

if you wish to be near the water then select region 4, sites 139 and 157 to 159 are the prime locations. Good power and water. Yes, the roads are narrow and you need to drive very slowly but it is worth the effort. Lots of shade but also a lot of ticks. Sad that we were here a few days before Memorial Day and none of the stores or any of the sights were open yet. Felt very safe here. The host families and rangers toured on the hour. It was a very quiet park and within walking distance to the marina and beach area. Great view of the lake. This park is for everyone no matter what type of camping style from tents to RV's. Lots of trails and easy biking routes. We camped at Lake of the Ozarks State Park in a Motorhome.

Nice campground with lots of shade, but the roads are narrow. Drive very carefully. We were unable to get into our reserved site because of trees and narrow roads. I recommend sites 148-151 for large rigs. They are on a wider road and in the open (unfortunately no shade). We stayed 5 nights and we would return!

We camped here for 5 days. Upon arrival, our reserved campsite proved to be unacceptable. Despite assurances when I made reservations, we could not get our 40 foot motorhome into the pull through. Since the park was not crowded, we found a back in site that was acceptable. The rest rooms and showers were very old and in desperate need of basic care and cleaning. We really enjoyed our stay here otherwise. We camped at Lake of the Ozarks State Park in a Motorhome.

The campground is getting a little old and could use a some TLC. If you have a long trailer, 32 ft or longer, some of the turns are a little tight. You will see some of the scrapes on the trees from people who were not paying attention. The bottom loop is closest to the lake and the swimming area which makes walking a great option. There are plenty of things to do in Osage Beach if you are tired of playing in the lake. We camp here every year and we have no reason not to return next summer. We camped at Lake of the Ozarks State Park in a Travel Trailer.
