Ha Ha Tonka State Park
Unless you are brand new to the lake area, you most likely have been told to pay this gorgeous park a visit. If you dock your boat, there is a short trail next to an enchanting spring to explore. From there, the more adventurous (and in shape) visitors can climb the over 200-step staircase to hike more than 15 miles of trails that wind throughout the park. There are thousands of lush, wooded acres. The park also features historic stone castle ruins high atop the bluff. You will see sinkholes, natural bridges, caves, wildlife, and more.

Ha Ha Tonka offers courtesy docks for visitors to use at the 14.5 MM of the Big Niangua arm. Boaters love to hang out in the cove and play in the lake. This is a quieter spot at the lake which makes it great for taking a swim. Fisherman say that the cold spring water feeding into the lake makes it a great spot to fish.
Bridal Cave & Thunder Mountain ParkYou will find America's most scenic cave tour at the 10.5 MM of the Big Niangua arm of the Lake of the Ozarks. The underground cave features a stalactite-adorned wedding chapel, Mystery Lake, and guided tours every hour filled with incredible tales about the cave.
