Slow on Lake of the Ozarks!

Recommended Posts

No wake policy at Lake of the Ozarks.

The Missouri Department of Public Safety and the Missouri State Highway Patrol have issued a no wake policy at the Lake of the Ozarks effective immediately.

This policy is now in effect for the entire lake area.

Emergency responders will be the only exemption to this restriction.

As of July 2, the Lake of the Ozarks is at 662.5 feet; full stage is 660 feet and normal stage is at 658 feet. 

This restriction will be in place until the lake level recedes below 661 feet.

This is also due to a concern for the safety of those who live at and visit Lake of the Ozarks and to reduce or prevent damage to docks and other personal property.

The Patrol suggests that dock owners disconnect/turn off electricity to their docks during this time of high water.

 The no-wake policy at the Lake of the Ozarks has been lifted, effective immediately.  The order went into effect Thursday due to high lake levels following Wednesday’s heavy rains. The Department of Public Safety and the Missouri State Highway Patrol have been monitoring conditions at the Lake and now say that water levels have dropped sufficiently to allow for the restrictions to be lifted.

Water levels dropped quickly thanks in part to Ameren Missouri opening the floodgates of the Bagnell Dam, allowing water to rapidly be released into the Osage River. The goal was to get the level of Lake of the Ozarks to 660 feet.
