If Missouri is America’s soul, Lake of the Ozarks is its heart—veined with slow and mighty rivers cutting through dramatic bluffs and rolling hills. There are more than 5,500 caves in Missouri, most of which are located here. A sprawling forest surrounds the lake with miles of oak and hickory. One of North America’s highest fish diversities is found in this region. This is indeed the heartland, and at Lake of the Ozarks, you’ll find not just another vacation, but another way of living.
