No, it is not the first day of fall yet…that is coming in just a few days, but we are gearing for all of the fun fall stuff around here at the Lake of the Ozarks! Traditionally, the peak of the fall colors occurs mid to late October so we encourage you to book your getaway during that time now! The maples, oaks, ashes, and hickories will be bursting with color. For now, though there are other things happening around town we want you to know about, such as the PumkinChunkin’ Palooza!

When you’ve been to the Lake of the Ozarks before you can attest to the fact that folks around here love to have a good time. Whether it is parties on the lake, live music at the local pub, festivals, car shows, or concerts, you’ll always find something to do during a stay here. To kick off the fall season, the Ozarks Amphitheater will be hosting the Pumpkin Chunkin’ Palooza on September 28th, 2019. The fun starts at 10am and will go until 6pm.
