Lake of the Ozarks in Missouri. Any houseboat information?

Is there any houseboats on Lake of the Ozarks in Missouri? My husband and I have been considering purchasing a houseboat and locating it at the lake, on Osage Beach, Missouri.

We have going there for years, but never see any houseboats on the lake. (There is one place that rents houseboats, but we never even seen those out very often.) Any suggestions on who to contact for information on rules, regulations, etc...

I have emailed a couple of the marinas, but no response.
Any other info for new houseboaters would be great.
Thanks Becky.

Well Becky, congratulations on your decision to purchase a houseboat.

As to if there are any houseboats on Lake of the Ozarks, there should be plenty of them. To help you the best that I can, you should have a look at our Lake of the Ozarks houseboat page for more information. You will also find names and telephone numbers of many of the marinas on the lake.

If you have specific questions to ask, you should telephone the marinas directly and speak to the managers themselves. I find often that when you "send an email" to a website, you never know if they received it, or if they simply don't respond to "general inquiries".

Lastly, hopefully some of our readers will share and post comments about their Lake of the Ozark houseboat experiences. Feel free to use the "Click here to post comments." link found near the bottom of this page.

Thanks again for sharing, IAN - from

Houseboats on Lake of the Ozarks
by: Anonymous

I'm not sure how old the question is, but... The main body of the lake is very rough for most houseboats, so you seldom see them in the busy areas. There are a LOT of houseboats on the lake, but they tend to stay off the main body.

I have a houseboat at Lake of the Ozarks. It's docked at the Harbour Marina which is between Gravois Mills and Laurie. There are lots of us there! The dock slip is very reasonable and it includes cable tv, electricity, water, showers/restrooms, ice machine, security.

It is approximately at the 5 mile marker. You should check them out. Also, a few coves over, is the Westport Yacht Club. It's pretty nice there, too.
