Lake of the Ozarks History

The Lake of the Ozarks was built to provide hydroelectric power to Missouri residents and after its creation, it quickly became a popular vacation spot in the midwest. The massive body of water created a playground for boating enthusiasts and the cliff top views made perfect backdrops from homes. It didn't take long for this man-made lake to commercialize into the best place to call home and to vacation. Many people live and visit the area and never realize the history behind the lake and the fun facts that surround it.
