Looking for a lake house in Missouri is a great idea because the state is home to nearly 600 man-made lakes that provide a wide-range of recreational options. One of the largest is the Lake of the Ozarks which has the largest amount of lake houses in Missouri. This lake has a surface area of 54,000 acres and 1,150 miles or shoreline. There is a huge amount of real estate in the Lake of the Ozarks with over 70,000 homes along the lake, many of which are vacation homes. Most of its shoreline is privately owned. At the time of construction, the Lake of the Ozarks was the largest man-made lake in the United States and one of the largest in the world. It was created to provide hydroelectric power for customers of Union Electric, but it quickly became a significant tourist destination for the Midwest. Spectacular scenery characteristic of the Ozarks has also helped to transform the lake into a major resort area, and more than 5 million people visit annually. The lake's serpentine shape has earned it the nickname "The Magic Dragon". Lake of the Ozarks real estate is diverse as the lake itself with a buildable waterfront lots selling for $200,000 all the way up to $6 Million for a luxury waterfront property.
