I grew up here in the "Loo", but I had the opportunity to visit Osage Beach several years ago. I won a drawing for a free weekend for two at "The Lodge" that the wife and I took advantage of. It was during the off season (November) and we basically had the run of the entire place by ourselves. Swimming pool, sauna, bowling alley, restaurants, game room....... we were the only ones there!
Had a shark steak there for the first time in my life, and it was absolutely delicious! We had the time of our lives, and it was the best weekend getaway we could have asked for. Definitely going to have to do it again sometime!
