Things to Do on a Lake of the Ozarks Mid-week Summer Escape

Summer is one of the most popular times of the year for family vacations, and for good reason. With school out for the year and fewer extracurricular activities, it’s often easier for families to get away between June and August. If you’re still figuring out your plans for this year’s getaway, consider planning a mid-week vacation to Alhonna Resort. Our family-friendly resort, which inspired the Blue Cat Lodge on Netflix’s Ozark, is close to some of the best things to do in the Lake of the Ozarks.

Staying with us on weekdays means you can enjoy popular Lake of the Ozarks activities and attractions without the large weekend crowds. Keep reading to learn more about memorable things to do on a Missouri summer vacation to Lake of the Ozarks.

A Checklist of 7 Lake of the Ozarks Summer Activities

  1. Spend a day out on the water on a rental boat. We offer guests several different vessels, including pontoon boats, bass boats, kayaks, and paddleboards. Watercraft are available for multiple-hour rentals or up to a week.
  2. Enjoy a day at Big Surf Waterpark, a nearby aquatic attraction featuring a wave pool, water slides, a lazy river, and more.
  3. Book a mid-week tee time at one of the nearby golf courses. Play through The Cove, a par-71 course, or see if you can come out on top after playing 18 at The Ridge.
  4. For a golf experience better for younger children, head to Sugar Creek Mini Golf, a Lake of the Ozarks staple for over 30 years. There are two courses to choose from, both known for fun challenges and stunning forested views.
  5. See all the beauty of the lake from the sky. Lake Ozark Helicopters, Inc., offers several excursions to choose from that are perfect for all ages. Another great option is Paradise Parasail, open to anyone ages five and up.
  6. Have a day at the beach without having to leave the resort! Our property has a sandy beach perfect for building sandcastles.
  7. Sneak in a bit of learning by visiting Stark Caverns. This nearby attraction teaches visitors about geological formations, Native American artifacts, and more.
