Ways to Love Lake of the Ozarks
Lake of the Ozarks: getting around
Larger resorts and condos crowd the busier east side, family-owned resorts line the west, and a soaring toll bridge connects the two. Many restaurants and stores, including Osage Beach Premium Outlets, front US-54 in Osage Beach. Some of the little towns around the lake have distinct downtowns, but city limits blur with the development ringing the lake. When you drive to your lodging for the first time, ask for directions.
