Why the Lake of the Ozarks Is the Ultimate Boating Destination

We’re always looking for interesting articles written about the Lake of the Ozarks. Little tidbits and facts that give you more insight into why we (and much of America) find the lake to be such a perfect vacation destination.

The Kansas City Star recently wrote a fantastic piece about all things boating at the Lake of the Ozarks. Here are some facts from the article we wanted to share:

– How many boaters and vacationers does the big lake attract? The Water Patrol, a division of the Missouri Highway Patrol, said the lake area is the equivalent of the third-largest city in the state on holiday weekends.

– There are more than 25,000 boat docks on the 54,000-acre lake, more than on any other Missouri reservoir.

– Lake of the Ozarks was named America’s Boating Capital by Boating Magazine in an article this year. “Ask most boat builders where their top five markets are, and Lake of the Ozarks will be on that list.

– So why is Lake of the Ozarks so popular with boaters? It starts with its size. Covering 54,000 acres and 92 miles from end to end, it offers plenty of options for boaters. If you want to boat into the middle of the action, you can stay in the first 40 miles of the lake. But if you want a more peaceful experience, you can find less traffic from mid-lake to the Warsaw area.

If you’re heading to the lake this month, next month, or this fall, be sure to check out Adventure Boat Rentals for all of your boat rental needs!

Did You Know? Who Can Drive a Boat…

If you’ll be renting a boat during your stay with us, keep in mind the rules of Lake.

Whether Missouri resident or not, the driver of the watercraft, boat or PWC must be at least 14 years of age, to drive some rentals, 16 years of age.

In addition to the age requirement, if the driver was born AFTER January 1, 1984, they must have their boater certification card, renting or driving their own watercraft.
