I agree that Lake of the Ozarks has gotten way too commercial and tourist-y. You can barely get through Osage Beach without running into about a hundred shops wanting to sell you pocket knives, walnut bowls, or moccasins!
Well I have listened to all of you complain about the tourists and congestion while visiting the Lake of the Ozarks, Well you should all be ashamed of yourselves... LOL i'm stuck living here with all the congestion and the damn tourists.... PITY ME
I Have a house over on the Sleepy Side (Gravois Mills) when not doing my Army thing, best place to relax (Unless it is peak tourist season) great 4 X 4 ing as well. It is just a damn shame all of the condo's that are going in around such a beautiful lake.
