Full throttle water sports at Osage Beach

Osage Beach hugs the Lake of the Ozarks, a spot known for its all-guns-blazing water sports. When you stay in an Osage Beach vacation rental, you can spend your days full throttle, motoring across the lake on speedboats, trying to stay upright while waterskiing, or hanging on while tubing. That's not to say you can't find a little peace and quiet. With mile upon mile of shoreline, it's not hard to find a secluded little spot to cast your line in and kick back, or spend a day practicing your swing on one of the nearby golf courses on a sunny afternoon.

Lake of the Ozarks at Osage Beach

If you're looking for somewhere to bring the kids on a summer vacation, you just found it. There are few children who'll say no to spending sunny days boating across the lake, or enjoying a night camping under the stars with a fire and heaps of marshmallows. You can even take them underground, to one of the eerie stalactite-laden caves, or hire mountain bikes to ride the trails in the nearby state parks. In short, if you want some outdoor family fun, there's no better place than staying at an Osage Beach vacation rental and exploring the Lake of the Ozarks.

Treat the young ones at Osage Beach

When you stay at an Osage Beach vacation rental, the family fun doesn't stop back on dry land. If you bundle the kids into the car, you can take them to any number of local amusement parks, where they can try their hand at mini golf, play laser tag, or race around the local go-kart track. They'll thank you for taking them to the Bagnell Dam Strip, where they can gorge on ice cream and solve the clues and puzzles in the one of the hottest new entertainment trends, the escape room. At the end of the day, you can swing by one of the family-friendly restaurants for Ozark barbecues and buffets.

Fun in the Osage Beach sun

Unsurprisingly, the busiest months on the Lake of the Ozarks is during the summer, between June and August, when families with kids on break from school book up Osage Beach vacation rentals. Summers are long and hot, with temperatures often hovering around the low 90s. With the proximity to the lake, though, it's not hard to cool off. If crowds aren't your thing and you don't mind a dip in temperature, try to score a waterfront rental in the shoulder months. Between April and May, or September and October, the climate can still be pleasant enough to take a dip in the lake.

For Osage Beach wildlife, head to Ha Ha Tonka

For wildlife, look no further than the Ha Ha Tonka, a state park that lies a half hour south of your Osage Beach vacation rental. A hike through the park's trails reveals all manner of critters, ranging from tiny shrews to large white-tailed deer. The list of backyard creatures is long and it's not hard to spot the squirrels and chipmunks which play a vital role in the park's ecosystem. Playful otters and beavers are also common. If you're really lucky, you might even spot the odd elusive bobcat or coyote, which roam the park in search of prey.
