It's Time to Plan a Fall Vacation at the Lake of the Ozarks

The lake area is a very popular vacation spot all summer long, but the fun doesn't stop around here after Labor Day. On the contrary, there are all kinds of great activities and events to enjoy around the lake throughout the year. Shorty Pants Lounge & Marina has a list of some popular fall events for you up first today followed by a look at the best waterfront vacation houses at the Lake of the Ozarks after that. The perfect place for you to stay while you're in town! 

Fall Events at Lake of the Ozarks

If you think the lake area is breathtaking in the summer, wait until you get a gander at the gorgeous fall foliage everywhere that you go each autumn! A relaxing fall vacation at the Lake of the Ozarks is already a wonderful reason to visit. These annual events and festivals just give you even more incentive to plan that trip. (You can find more details about all of the events listed by visiting 

Lake of the Ozarks WingFest
Sept. 25
Local restaurants from across the lake area compete to find out who has the best wings in town. Your ticket gets you all the wings you can eat (while they last) plus a beverage and musical entertainment. All of the proceeds benefit local charities and you get a belly full of the most amazing wings you've ever tasted. We're extremely partial to the Wobbly Wings from our sister restaurant, Wobbly Boots Roadhouse, but the other booths will be worth tasting too.  

Fall Big Bass Bash
Oct. 5 & 6
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. 

20th Annual Bogeys & Beer Golf Tournament 
Oct. 10
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. Oh, and of course, beer! (Among other tasty refreshing adult beverages!)  

34th Annual Fall Harbor Hop
Oct. 12
Shorty Pants Lounge & Marina will once again be one of the many lakeside stops for this popular poker run on the water. (Which makes it extremely convenient to stay here in one of our rental houses!) That day we'll have the incredible Steven Moore onstage to keep you entertained. A $20 donation allows you to collect 7 cards from any of the waterfront stops on the list and prizes are given out when it's over.

Book Your Stay With Us
You'll need a place to stay while you're in town and two of the best vacation house rentals at the Lake of the Ozarks happen to be located right next door to Shorty Pants Lounge & Marina. The restaurant and bar will both be open through the fall and our marina, as well as both vacation houses, are available year-round. 

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. 

The weather around here is too good to miss in the fall, plus many of the seasonal spots are still open for business and the lake is a lot quieter but every bit as inviting. After the events listed above, it will be time to come back and get in some fantastic holiday shopping as well. 

The vacation houses next door to Shorty Pants Lounge & Marina are available year-round and centrally located so it's easy for you to take advantage of all the lake area has to offer. Pick out a date (or two) and book your stay soon before all of the best dates are taken! (It's not too early to reserve your dates for next summer too!)
