Hi,
I am thinking about relocating to the Lake of the Ozarks and I have some concerns...

1. There is alot of mention regarding the over crowding of boats, are there any areas that are more quiet, less wavy?

2. I would live there year round, other than the lake, is there activities, groups, or clubs to join to keep social?

3. I guess in a perfect world, i would be able to enjoy the serenity of a peaceful lake, swim, seadoos. Any advice would be appreciated fish. Is any of this possible without running into the loud party's, the numerous boats and the waves they cause?

I thank u in advance for reading and any advice you can share.

The serenity of a peaceful lake is broken by personal watercraft.

Are you wanting to own a lake side home or be in a condo development? Don't forget the cost of a condo dock space if you have a boat. There used to be quiet lake side areas (fishing water) on the Niangua or Little Niangua arms (think Camdenton) or near the state parks. I don't know if that's true anymore. I have a timeshare below Grand Glaise and it is pretty crowded but ok for visits. When I was doing SCUBA I didn't even try diving at the lake for a lot of reasons but the crazy people in boats was a big issue.

A couple years ago we stopped there on our quest to find a retirement place in MO, thinking it would be 'one ginormous traffic jam' much like the Chain O' Lakes north of Chicago where, on weekends, you can walk across the lake on the bows of the boats. We were pleasantly surprised and are now searching for a place there. The western part of the lake is much quieter as are many of the coves and the Niangua and Gavois arms. I'd suggest you take a nice vacation trip to one of the many fine resorts there to get a feel of it. Generally anything west of route 5 is much calmer, as they say, "The quiet side of the Lake".
