Experience a new kind of camping adventure at the Outpost. Nestled in the heart of Lake of the Ozarks State Park, the Outpost offers eight rustic log cabins for campers who want to experience the outdoors without pitching a tent.
Developed in 1993, each cabin features tables and chairs, a wood-burning stove and sleeping accommodations for six people. These accommodations include two double beds in the loft and one double bed downstairs.
To prepare for your experience, bring your camping gear such as sleeping bags, lanterns, cooking and eating utensils, and water containers. The rustic cabins do not have electricity or running water, so plan accordingly.
Outside, each cabin has tables and benches, and a fire grill for barbecuing or campfires. A modern central restroom and showerhouse, along with a central parking area, are located within walking distance of the cabins. Drinking water and a pay phone are available there also.
These rustic cabins, surrounded by an oak-hickory forest, offer visitors a chance to watch wildlife from their front porch. The Lake of the Ozarks, where you can enjoy fishing and swimming, is within walking distance along a hiking trail. Boat rentals are available from the park concessionaire.
The Outpost provides a rustic place to stay while exploring Missouri's largest state park, as well as many of the surrounding attractions. Park facilities include campgrounds, several picnic areas, boat rentals, swimming beaches, horseback trails and rentals, hiking and bicycling trails, nature programs and tours through Ozark Caverns.
Cabins in the Outpost may be rented year-round, with a 20-percent reduction rate offered from Nov. 1 through March 31. Full payment is required at the time of reservation.
