ClothesThe temperature in the lake area can vary from brisk and chilly to scorching hot all in one day, and while this can make packing a little challenging, it's not impossible. Just think of wearing layers, so that you can continually peel them off throughout the day if you need to. Here is a pretty good idea of what you should consider:
Shirts - bring a good variety so you can choose depending on the day or activity. Tank tops and short sleeves are perfect for layering, and a long sleeve is helpful if you'll be doing any activity where you want your arms covered. If you bring a long sleeve you'll only need one if any.
Pants - during the summer months it will be shorts all the way! You can bring a pair of jeans though, just in case you'll be participating in an activity like hiking, rock climbing, or cave exploring.
Jacket - you should only need one just in case the mornings or evenings are a little chillier than expected.
Swimwear - bring two swimsuits or trunks so that you'll always have a dry one ready to wear.
Nice Attire - we have several nice restaurants where you may want to dress up and have a good time, so packing a nice dress or button up shirt can guarantee that you'll be dressed for the occasion.
Shoes - make it a combination of nice shoes and athletic shoes. You'll most likely be participating in activities that need the appropriate footwear, so tennis shoes, sandals, boat shoes, and nice dressy shoes. Look at your activity list and plan from there what would be the best.
Obviously you'll want to bring items that you use on a daily basis like make-up, deodorant, and hair products. You'll also want to make sure and add sunscreen and bug spray to the mix as well. You can pack toiletries that may leak in a plastic bag to just guarantee that you don't have shampoo or sunscreen slathered all over your nice outfit when you arrive at your Lake of the Ozarks vacation rental.
MiscellaneousWhat are you wanting to do at the Lake? If you want to go fishing a boating, bring your fishing rod and tackle! We have many varieties of fish in our Lake, and people come from miles around to catch them. Do you like golfing? You can bring your favorite clubs and shoes and play several rounds while you're here. If you like shopping, then do we have a treat for you! Our outlet mall is a great way to spend the day, but you'll want to remember you wallet and your super comfy shopping shoes.
Even if you forget something that you wanted to bring to your vacation, there are many places just down the road where you can stock up! You can bring groceries with you, or you can just buy them when you get here. We look forward to hosting you in one of our many vacation condos at the Lake of the Ozarks, and showing you how much fun a Lake vacation can be. If you're ready to reserve your condo, visit our website to see what's available when you want to come!
