You Need a Fall Vacation at the Lake of the Ozarks

The fun at the lake doesn't end with Labor Day. On the contrary, there is still plenty of time to enjoy a lot of "summer" activities before the weather gets cold plus lots of fun fall events to attend. If you need a place to stay while you're in town, that's where Shorty Pants Lounge & Marina can come in handy! 

We have not just 1, but 2 of the best vacation house rentals at the Lake of the Ozarks sitting right next door, and we'd love to have you stay with us. First, we'll tell you a little about our spacious waterfront vacation rentals, followed by some of the irresistible fall events happening close by.

The Best Vacation Rentals
The Glass House offers 1500 square feet of living space and can easily house up to 8 guests. The Red House boasts 3,400 square feet of living space and can sleep up to 16. Both offer plenty of room to bring the whole family along or a large group of friends for a relaxing fall stay at the lake. 

Both houses have an amazing lake view with large decks to sit on and admire it from. They contain all the comforts of home you'll need during your stay and are only a short walk away from Shorty Pants Lounge & Marina.  

Annual Fall Events
Tales of the breathtaking scenery surrounding the lake area should be enough to convince you to travel this way during the fall. In case you need a bit more incentive than that, here is a look at some of the upcoming fall events at the Lake of the Ozarks. 

Lake of the Ozarks Air Show- Sept. 22
Camdenton Memorial Lake Regional Airport
A day filled with exciting acts both on the ground and in the air. At one point, hundreds of pin pong balls will be released from an airplane and children are invited to race onto the field and grab them for prizes! An entertaining day for the entire family. A rain date is set for Sept. 23. 

Get The Led Out: The American Led Zeppelin - Sept. 22
Ozarks Amphitheater
While you're already in Camdenton for the Air Show, you might as well stay for this amazing concert in this wonderful outdoor concert venue. The Ozarks Amphitheater was recently voted #5 of the best live music venues in Missouri, and this excellent tribute band will be helping everyone to celebrate Led Zeppelin's 59th anniversary.  

19th Annual Bogeys & Beer Golf Tournament - Oct. 3
The Oaks at Tan-Tar-A Resort
We are proud every year to be a part of this annual golf tournament where all of the proceeds benefit many local organizations. It consists of a shotgun start, cash prizes and 18-hole proxies, silent & live auctions, and both lunch and an awards dinner provided.  

Fall Big Bass Bash - Oct. 6-7
This annual fishing tournament is for amateurs only and there is over $250,000 up for grabs in prizes! Be sure to stock up on everything you'll need for a day out on the lake at Shorty Pants Marina before heading out to win the big money. 

33rd Annual Fall Harbor Hop - Oct. 13
Shorty Pants Lounge & Marina will once again be one of the many stops for this popular poker run on the water. (Which makes it extremely convenient to stay here in one of our rental houses!) A $20 donation allows you to collect your 7 cards from any of the waterfront stops on the list and prizes are given out when it's over.
