You can launch your boat into Lake of the Ozarks at one of the three paved boat ramps: a four-lane ramp at each of the Grand Glaize Beach and Pa He Tsi locations and a two-lane ramp at Public Beach #1. Daily launch fees are $5 for vessels up to 30 feet in length and $10 for vessels over 30 feet in length. Annual launch permits are available. For vessels up to 30 feet, it is $65, and for vessels more than 30 feet, it is $72.
Campground users can launch free at any ramp with a current, valid camping permit. There are no motor restrictions. The boat launches at Grand Glaize Beach and Public Beach #1 are open year-round; the Pa He Tsi launch* is open March through October. *When lake levels drop below 658.5, this boat launch will be temporarily closed; please check the Park and Site Status Map before your visit.
You can also rent a boat or boat slip at one of two marinas in Lake of the Ozarks State Park, located at both public beaches. Contact the marina at 573-348-1233 for boat slip and boat rental information.
