The sounds of nightlife and s’mores by the fire … camping should be on everyone’s bucket list.

The sounds of nightlife and s’mores by the fire … camping should be on everyone’s bucket list. From pitching a tent to “glamping,” there are several ways you can experience Mother Nature here at the Lake.

Primitive Camping
There’s something about setting up camp. Sure it takes a lot of planning and work but it’s worth the peace and quite you’ll get once it’s all done. Basic sites can be found at just about any state park, some are equipped with electric.

The Yurt
Located at the Lake of the Ozarks State Park down Hwy. 42, these circular, fabric structures offer a one-of-a-kind experience. Better yet, they come with cozy amenities such as a small refrigerator, microwave and beds. Sleeps up to six so it’s great for groups. You can grill outside then make your way indoors when it’s time to sleep.
The park also has rustic log cabins that are available that have a few more perks such as air conditioning. These sites are available to rent year-round.

Tree House Cabins
Open in April, Cross Creek RV Park in Lake Ozark has it all, but we think the tree house cabins are pretty unique. These air-conditioned cabins sit on stilts high up in the trees and sleep 4-6 people.
The 40-acre park has private tent areas, RV sites and all kinds of activities. A pool, game room, playground, mini golf, nature trails, WiFi and other amenities will let you enjoy nature with all the convinces of home.
