Ortega National Parks To Manage Marinas at Lake of the Ozarks

Ortega National Parks, a hospitality and retail company operating in parks across the country, will manage marina and retail operations in Lake of the Ozarks State Park for Missouri State Parks.

The park, located near Kaiser, offers more than 80 miles of lake frontage for water enthusiasts to enjoy, and more than 17,000 explorable acres and 12 trails for those who prefer to stay ashore. Visitors can explore the world underground by touring the Ozark Caverns.

“Lake of the Ozarks State Park is a wildly popular park in Missouri,” said Frank Pikus, chief executive officer of Ortega National Parks. “We have enjoyed working as partners with the Parks department and look forward to continued growth of this relationship with the addition of the park’s marina to our portfolio.”

Ortega National Parks will operate the two marinas (Grand Glaize Beach Marina and Public Beach #1 Marina) and campground store within Lake of the Ozarks State Park. Along with watercraft and slip rentals, each marina has a general store where visitors can find boating and fishing supplies, as well as clothing and snacks.
