8 Best Wedding Venues at the Lake of the Ozarks

As local wedding professionals, we have experienced many fantastic local wedding venues at the Lake of the Ozarks.

Below is a list of unique venues listed alphabetically. We have served couples at each one of them, many repeatedly, and had a positive experience with the staff as well as the venue itself. All of these venues have the The Bennetts stamp of approval!

Wedding Venue: Camden on the Lake

If you’re a foodie you can just stop reading the list right now and call Camden on the Lake (then come back to the list and share it on all the socials). Tell them Mitchell and Katie sent you. The food here is second to none, and never consists of “standard” wedding fare.

Additionally, they have a variety of rooms and space to accommodate weddings of different sizes.

Located right on the Lake, you can dock your boat, enjoy their large swimming pool or outdoor concert venue, and have plenty of room to accommodate all those out-of-town guests. These features make it one of our favorite wedding venues at the Lake of the Ozarks.

Wedding Venue: The Exchange

Located just off the square in Camdenton, Missouri, The Exchange Venue offers an rustic industrial vibe with both an indoor and outdoor wedding space.

It also has well thought out and decorated areas for the fellas and ladies to get ready in. The old-school wooden bar and beautifully landscaped outdoor venue highlight this top 8 venue.

Wedding Venue: Ha Ha Tonka

Calling all nature lovers. This State Park has a variety of places for small to medium sized weddings. One of the best parks in the state, be sure the visit the castle ruins on top of the bluffs overlooking the lake. Hike to the natural bridge or view the beautiful teal waters of the spring. Take portraits on one of the many hiking trails.

There are also a number of pavilions to host your ceremony or reception. Ha Ha Tonka is a photographers and videographers playground. We have many photos from this scenic state park — we can’t even come close to sharing them all. It definitely earned it’s spot on the best wedding venues list.

Wedding Venue: The Lodge of Four Seasons

Have 2–400 guests? Need lodging for everyone? Need golf for the boys and a spa for the ladies? The Lodge of Four Seasons can accommodate your needs. They have everything from small wedding sites to huge event spaces and everywhere in between. The rooftop deck is a great place for receptions, as is the Granada ballroom. With fantastic views of the lake and a Spa to help you relax at the end of a long week, “The Lodge” is a top choice for many brides and grooms.

Wedding Venue: Old Kinderhook

Old Kinderhook is Mitchell’s favorite golf course at the lake. It has a hotel, 18-hole golf course, ice-skating in the winter, and a fine dining restaurant. Getting married overlooking the golf course offers a mix of the greenest fairways at the lake along with natural trees and rolling hills. We have truly enjoyed every wedding we’ve photographed at Old Kinderhook.

Get your portraits taken amongst the grape vines, in their manicured garden with waterfalls, or in the completely natural wooded areas. Let your guests unwind as the sip on the different wines that Seven Springs Winery makes in house.
