Lake of the Ozarks is only 90 years old, but in those few generations, it has become one of Missouri`s most popular tourist destinations. The lake we know today, stretching 90 miles from west to east, is man-made, the result of a dam harnessing the Osage River. It resembles a dragon, leading locals to nickname the lake `Puff the Magic Dragon`. The towns and villages on Lake of the Ozarks (Camdenton, Lake Ozark, Laurie, Osage Beach, Sunrise Beach, and the Village of Four Seasons) offer lots of fun attractions for visitors, such as world-class boating and fishing, hiking, parasailing, golfing, and amusement parks!
