Winter Events at the Lake of the Ozarks

BomBay Boat Rental Company enjoys the Lake of the Ozarks and we want to help YOU enjoy it, too! During the summer, the Lake is a hot spot for visitors and locals, but the fun doesn't stop with the change of seasons. There are plenty of fun things to do year round and we wanted to highlight a few of them here. From bird watching to plunging into the lake for a great cause, learn more about what the lake area has to offer, "off-season." When the weather warms up, we look forward to renting you the best watercraft at the Lake of the Ozarks has to offer!

Bundle up the family and join in on some bird watching fun.

This event has been gaining momentum since the first program was held in 1999. Last year, over 3,700 people helped make the event one of the most successful Eagle Days in years past. Don't forget your binoculars and camera, and have fun! Highlights include:

  • Activities at School of the Osage Heritage Elementary and at the Osage River Access.
  • Live eagles from the World Bird Sanctuary with naturalists on hand to answer questions at Osage National Golf Resort.
  • Natural eagle viewing and photo opportunities at Willmore Lodge or from the decks of the Celebration Cruise II Yacht.
