Lake of the Ozarks, MO - As sure as the coming of spring at the Lake of the Ozarks is the annual Dogwood Festival in Camdenton, which takes place April 25-27.

While the Lake of the Ozarks was recently voted one of the top two destinations in the nation for viewing colorful fall foliage by readers of USA Today, springtime in the Ozarks is a sight to behold as well.

The hardwood forests that line the winding roads and the 1,150 miles of shoreline along the Lake of the Ozarks become a palette of soft green with pops of white and pinks from the Flowering Dogwoods and Redbud trees.

Go Outside and Play

Orange County is so beautiful it could be an advertisement for nature itself. Museums, great shopping, sports teams, and fancy hotels bring visitors here by the thousands, as well they should. But it’s what’s outside that sustains us. And it’s rare to find a bucolic wonderland so close to a cultural mecca. It’s not just the best of both worlds here — it’s the best of all worlds.

A recent University of Georgia study asked Southerners why they valued wilderness areas. Protecting water and air quality, safeguarding wildlife and rare species habitats, providing scenic beauty, and preserving areas for future generations were the most important benefits of wilderness. Hiking was the most common use of wilderness areas, (84%), followed by photography, swimming, and camping – all of which can be found right here, minutes from home or your cushy hotel room.
