Karis Cottage Lake Of The Ozarks Vacation Rental

Bagnell Dam

Bagnell Dam Created The Lake

Bagnell Dam makes our great lake possible. A working hydroelectric operation, Bagnell Dam provides electricity through Ameren Electric. It’s also what makes the Lake of the Ozarks so unique. Our lake is privately owned land which provides lake home owners the opportunity to build homes on the shoreline and enjoy private docks as well. The strategically placed dam gives the Lake of the Ozarks 1100 miles of shoreline, more than the California coast! 

The Bagnell Dam Strip

While you are taking a look at Bagnell Dam, be sure to check out all the Bagnell Dam Strip has to offer. A step back in time, with an arcade featuring skee ball and bumper cars and restaurants to suit every cuisine. And don’t forget to satisfy your sweet tooth with homemade fudge at the candy kitchen or an ice cream treat at the parlor. Don’t miss the chance to take home lasting memories with a one-of-a-kind Ozarks souvenir at one of many shops on the strip, or dress up for an old time photo with the kids.
