Bring Plenty of Water
Lake of the Ozarks and all of Missouri for that matter is very hot and humid during the summer months. Stay hydrated on your trip by making sure to pack yourself plenty of water.
Don’t Forget the Sunscreen
When you are kayaking at the Lake of the Ozarks, you will probably be in direct sun. Make sure you don’t get too much sun by applying sunscreen regularly. Even if it is overcast you still have a chance of getting some sun.
Kayaking trips can be a couple hours or a full day activity. Either route you go make sure you bring something to eat. If you do decide to do a full day excursion, make sure you stop and enjoy a swim and some lunch.
