As they say at the Lake of the Ozarks — “The fish bite when the dogwoods are in bloom”.

One of the most gorgeous times of the year to visit the lake is in April for the Dogwood Festival, which is held on Saturday, April 18th – 20th in Camdenton.

There’s plenty to do for the entire family — enjoy live music, foods, carnival activities, beauty pageants, arts crafts and more. This festival brings in more than 10,000 people each year.
