April Must-Do Events at the Lake of the Ozarks


A view from our Casablanca property

Two things that don’t got together: Boredom and Lake of the Ozarks!

When you visit the lake, there’s never ever a shortage of things to do and see.  Since it’s (slowly) starting to warm up, we figured we would share some events that are taking place in April at the Lake of the Ozarks.

  • April 4-7th: Jacob’s Swapping Days: Acres of crafts, collectables, pigeons, poultry, small animals (no horses, cattle or swine), and various products at Jacobs Cave. Mostly animals — ducks, chickens, rabbits. 200 different varieties of chickens. Rough camping and shower-house available. Refreshments sold. Reduced cave tour rates. Located on Route 5, between Gravois Mills and Versailles. Admission: $5 per vehicle.
  • April 18-21: 63rd Annual Dogwood Festival: Fun for the family, featuring, among other activities: crafts; pageants; food; entertainment; a parade; a golf tournament; a fish fry; and a carnival. Please visit the website for details, locations and schedules.
  • April 19-21: In-Water Boat Show: The In-Water Boat Show, sponsored by the Lake of the Ozarks Marine Dealers Association, allows you to see a variety of boats, including new cruisers, performance boats, runabouts, and personal watercraft. The show is held at Dog Days Bar and Grill; 19 mile-marker by water.
  • April 20-21: Big Bass Fishing Tournament: The Big Bass Bash on the Lake of the Ozarks has grown to become one of the Midwest’s largest amateur bass fishing tournaments. More than $150,000 in cash prizes, including a grand prize of $41,500 to the angler who hauls in the heaviest bass of the weekend.
