Lake of the Ozarks recently voted the Nation's Best Recreational Lake!

 

This large reservoir from the Osage River offers visitors more than 1,000 miles of shore. It belongs to Missouri’s biggest state park and is a sought-after vacation destination with a wide array of activities, from fishing to shopping to dining to spas. Go golfing, boating or, if you’re feeling wild, visit “Party Cove.” This lake attracts visitors from families to college kids, and offers various lodging options, too, from resorts to an RV campground. This uniquely shaped lake is nicknamed the “Magic Dragon” for its snaky shape.

It was a very close race between the winner and runner-up, but in the end it was Missouri's Lake of the Ozarks that won the most reader votes and the title of Best Recreational Lake.
