Kayakers Unite at the Osage Howler Moonlight Paddle Race

Dark night sky with bright white moon, tree branches and water below.There is a quote out there that says, Fill your life with adventures, not things. Have stories to tell, not stuff to show.” Are you ready for a new adventure?! There is no time like the present to take some time for yourself and you do not want to look back ten years from now and only wish you had made room for new memories and stories to share. We would love to have you spend some time relaxing and having fun with us here in Osage Beach, MO. There is an abundance of things to do but we can also provide the perfect place to fully rest and recharge. If you are up for some fun in the water, we encourage you to check out a really unique race called the Osage Beach Howler Moonlight Paddle Race.

With our stunning Lake the Ozarks being the center of attention, water sports are definitely a favorite for visitors.  There is non-stop activity here! The Lake was voted “Best Recreational Lake” by readers of USA Today.  In addition to stand-up paddle boarding, fishing, parasailing, swimming and boating, many guests love to get out in a kayak. Well, the Moonlight Paddle Race is a bit different as this will get you out on the water during moonlight hours. The inaugural race was just last year and was a great success with around 70 paddlers in the race. This year the race will be taking place June 30-July 1, 2018 and you will paddle by moonlight from the Bagnell Dam Access to Pikes Camp Access. This is a 61-mile race along the Osage River! You can also choose the fun race of just 14 miles that starts at the St. Thomas Access.

It’s a beautiful and unique experience to paddle under the silver moonlight and a great reason to visit our gorgeous area. Before and after the race you can eat, shop, play, relax—do whatever “floats your boat!” If interested in the race, you’ll need to sign up no later than June 8th. Book your getaway online today or contact us anytime for more information or help planning the perfect Lake of the Ozarks vacation.
