Dog Days is the Lake of the Ozarks party spot, right in the middle of the Lake’s action! At the intersection of the Glaize Arm and the main channel, Dog Days is just a short boat ride from most of the Lake, and it’s a favorite for any Lake crowd needing a guaranteed good time. A stop at Dog Days always means there is plenty of good fun, great food, and delicious drinks in store!

Boaters are drawn to Dog Days’ crystal clear swimming pool, ample seating, and beautiful view. With tropical cabanas and pool-side service, Dog Days is a Lakeside paradise, with everything a vacationer could want at Lake of the Ozarks. The popular Wooftop Bar can be reserved for private events, accommodating between 40 – 70 people.
