Ways to Love Lake of the Ozarks
Lake of the Ozarks: boat basics
Most waterfront lodgings allow visitors who bring their own boats to reserve a slip. If you don't have a boat, family-owned Bridgeport Boat Rental offers hourly and daily rentals of speedboats, pontoons, fishing boats and personal watercraft. At the very least, try Tropic Island Cruises for 90-minute narrated tours loaded with silly jokes and tropical hits; or take a guided fishing trip, just to feel the wind in your hair.
