on 16 Apr 2019


Missouri vacations are awesome no matter where you lay your head, but staying at a cabin at the Lake of the Ozarks makes your trip that much better. With all of the lodging accommodations to choose from, a Lake of the Ozarks cabin may not be an obvious choice. Keep reading for great reasons you'll love a cabin on your next vacation to the Lake.

Don't get me wrong, you have to be a certain type of person to fully enjoy a woodsy cabin and all it offers. But with all the ammenities in some cabins these days, you can probably find one that lives up to your standards.

For other types of people, a cabin is a welcome retreat after swearing off tent camping. With a sore back from sleeping on the ground to the need for some AC in the summer, there are lots of reasons to ditch your tent and stay in a cabin. You can still enjoy nature, build a campfire, and worry less about getting dirty out on the trail.

Cabins are usually near fun outdoor activities, so you should be minutes away from your next adventure. Fishing, canoing, paddle boarding, kayaking, hiking, swimming, and other outdoor activities are waiting for you.

Here is a nice list cabins in the Lake of the Ozarks area.
