Plan an unforgettable Lake of the Ozarks bachelor party by following this trusty itinerary.

What to Do

Since Lake of the Ozarks is made up of almost 2,000 miles of shoreline, you definitely should spend some of your trip out on the Lake. There are plenty of marinas that offer pontoon, speed boat and other watercraft rentals that you can take to hang and cove out — like the infamous Party Cove. So, if you want to get rowdy out on the water during your Lake of the Ozarks bachelor party, check out Captain Mike Fink’s Marina or Dirty Duck Boat Rentals for boat rental prices and more.  

During your Lake of the Ozarks bachelor party you definitely should check out the scenic Bridal Cave and Thunder Mountain Park. The cave is filled with giant columns and stalactites, which create a one-of-a-kind experience. Just book a group tour where you and your groomsmen can explore the cavern and get a ton of Insta-worthy pics.

If you and your bros are big golfers and hope to get a few holes in during your Lake of the Ozarks bachelor party, then definitely spend some time at one of the Lake area’s 16 golf courses. From the Old Kinderhook Golf Club, to the Arnold Palmer Signature course at Osage National Golf Resort to even the USA Today ranked Hidden Lakes, the Lake of the Ozarks golfing experience is definitely above par.  

The Lake also has a sick nightlife since it’s filled with bars that offer live music and entertainment. Check out Shorty Pants Lounge and Marina for live music and a New Orleans-Inspired aesthetic, Dog Days Bar and Grill for music and dancing or even look at Ozarks Amphitheater’s schedule for an outdoor concert during your bach party.
