This Midwestern RV Park Right On A Beautiful Lake Offers A Laid Back Summer Getaway

As summer approaches and travel plans emerge, you've likely at least considered a little lake getaway. We can't blame you; there's something about kicking it lakeside that feels particularly relaxing. If you want to skip the masses of a European summer and enjoy something a little more Americana, jump in your RV or camper van and head to a true gem in the Midwest.

Located in Missouri along the Lake of the Ozarks is Osage Beach RV Park. Not only is Osage Beach a charming U.S. lake town, but it's particularly ideal for those who want a summer vacation without reaching for their passport. The RV Park paired with Osage Beach itself is a prime choice for those who want a tranquil, kick-back-and-relax-style vacation. While boating is one of the main draws of the area, you'll find the relaxing amenities at Osage Beach RV Park are the perfect complement to the wild boat rides and popular party destinations out on the lake.

Amenities at Osage Beach RV Park

What good is an RV Park without proper amenities to enhance your overall experience? Luckily, Osage Beach RV Park has ample amenities and things to do right on the premises that will keep you entertained and relaxed. Especially ideal for family-friendly summer getaways, there is both a swimming pool and a kid pool. If you fancy a walk, there's a great path through the woods within the park.

Those who need to work while traveling can get lots done with the RV Park's fast, free WiFi, and if you need a break from online Zoom calls, go have some fun on the property's shuffleboard courts. Security is anything but an afterthought at Osage Beach RV Park, as there's a controlled entry gate to get onto the property. If you're flexible on when you can travel, it's worth checking out Osage Beach RV Park's upcoming events. For example, to celebrate July 4, they have a pancake breakfast on Saturday. On September 21, there's a cornhole tournament and taco party. And to close the season, on October 19, they're having a Halloween bash. Note that Osage Beach RV Park is only open from April 1 to October 27.

One of the best US destinations for boating

You really can't visit Osage Beach without a boat. Well, you can, but your FOMO would be so strong that it would have you reconsidering your choices for not getting out on one of the most beautiful lakes in the Midwest. Luckily, you don't need to own a boat to visit, as there are a few rental companies right in town. Note that in order to rent a boat in Missouri, if you were born after January 1, 1984, you must pass an approved course by NASBLA (National Association of State Boating Law Administrators). The course is available online.

Try Dirty Duck Boat Rental. This family-operated boat rental company is open year-round and offers off-season discounts. Better yet, it's only a 10-minute ride to Party Cove, a mile-long area of the lake that's extremely popular and has a lively vibe all summer.

Captain Bob's Boat Rental and Charters is another fantastic option for a boat rental in the area. They offer Tritoon boats and 250 Cobalt Bowriders available for either four- or eight-hour rentals. The rental company also offers wakeboards, tubes, and water ski rentals to enhance your on-the-water experience.
