How to Enjoy the Fall Colors at Lake of the Ozarks

The Fall colors are quickly approaching the peak of change as we head into November, displaying vibrant yellow, orange, and red hues. Now is the perfect time to experience awe-inspiring views, enjoying crisp Fall weather, and the natural beauty that Lake of the Ozarks has to offer. There are numerous ways to experience Fall at the Lake of the Ozarks, from scenic overlooks and state parks to boat side and birds-eye tours. If you own a second home at Lake of the Ozarks now is a great time to visit, you won't want to miss this Fall beauty!

Team Lasson is here to share some of the ways we think you'll enjoy the Fall colors this year.

Boat Side

As the number one recreational activity at Lake of the Ozarks, viewing the Fall foliage from your boat is naturally an amazing way to capture the beauty of the season. So, if you haven't winterized the boat for the season quite yet, this is a great opportunity to get one-of-a-kind views while exploring the Lake. You could boat down the Aquatic trail for some unique views or cruise the main channel for more adventure while out sightseeing. 

If you're not fortunate enough to own a boat of your own, no worries! Lake of the Ozarks has fabulous cruises available for charter that will narrate stories about the history of the Lake as you leisurely take in the sights.

Birds-Eye View

One way to view the Fall colors at Lake of the Ozarks is by taking to the air! The Lake looks different from up this high, experience the awe of the "magic dragon" as you take to the skies with one of the aerial tours available. These tours are narrated and have several packages available to you to customize your viewing experience.

Scenic Overlooks

There are several gorgeous overlooks worth visiting at Lake of the Ozarks, all offering breathtaking views of the Fall colors. The first is the Ameren scenic overlook, located just off the Bagnell Dam on Upper Power Plant Rd, Lake Ozark. The second can be seen from Wilmore Lodge, also in Lake Ozark - not far from the Ameren lookout. The third overlook, Thunder Mountain Scenic Overlook can be visited in Camdenton in Bridal Cave Rd, just off Old Hwy 5. These overlooks are a fantastic place to stop along the way as you tour Lake of the Ozarks.

State Parks

Lake of the Ozarks is proud to boast two award-winning State Parks, Ha Ha Tonka State Park and Lake of the Ozarks State Park.
Ha Ha Tonka State Park is roughly four miles south of Camdenton and offers 14 trails ranging from leisurely to challenging, overlooks, as well as historic castle ruins. Enjoy the Fall foliage as you explore this gorgeous park, taking in the vibrant colors, natural geological formations, springs, caverns, and sinkholes - not forgetting the pristine hardwood forestry and glades. 
The Lake of the Ozarks State Park is located in Osage Beach, holding roughly 17,626 acres of beautiful forestry as well as 12 hiking trails ranging from 0.8miles to 13.5miles. There are trails to accommodate many different activities such as equestrian, biking, and leisurely strolls, all offering astounding views of the Fall season.

When you own a home at Lake of the Ozarks you'll have every opportunity to view the gorgeous Fall season at your convenience, without even leaving your cozy abode.
