Community Events in the Fall/Winter at Lake of the Ozarks

We live in a great community at the Lake of the Ozarks! Throughout the off season, there are several events happening that benefit our community and help a lot of people in the local area. If you make the lake your home year round at the best condominium complex at the Lake of the Ozarks, make sure to support these events. You’ll not only have a great time, but you will be helping people in need. Here’s a list of some upcoming events.

Gala of Trees

When: November 19-21 - The kick-off party is Thursday, November 19th at 6 PM.
Price: Tickets are $15 per person
Where: Bootleggers Sports Book and Grill

What is it: The Gala of Trees is a fundraising event in which trees are sponsored by locals businesses. These trees are decorated and put on display and auctioned off. Proceeds from the tree sales are given to the Candyland and The Idiot's Club to purchase toys for local children.

Christmas for Kids

When: December 13th - The VIP party begins at 6:00 PM and 7:00 PM for general admission.

Where: Country Club Hotel
What is it: Christmas for Kids is a benefit sponsored by the Kiwanis Club of Ozark Coast and local lake businesses.  Attendees bring in an unwrapped gift for the charity. The charity then creates a "toy store", sorting all the gifts by age/group/gender. If there are any areas that need more gifts, the money from the event is used to purchase more. Finally, volunteers come in and wrap all the presents. The following day the gifts are presented to the families and children in need. The proceeds all benefit underprivileged children in the Lake area and local charity groups.


When: November 23 - December 12 - Hours are 2-6 PM weekdays and 12-5 PM weekends.
Where: Stone Crest Mall
What is it: Candyland is an event sponsored by the Lake Ozark Rotary which encourages the Lake community to generously give to underprivliged children. Local school counselors compile a list of kids, which is then given to the Rotary. A candycane is then hung for each family (400+ candycanes). Local residents can then choose a candycane that contains a list of wants/needs for the family. Once purchased, the gifts can be returned to Candyland or to the YMCA where they are wrapped and delivered to the school - given to the child by the counselor.

Living at The Lake of the Ozarks allows you to be a part of one of the most generous and helpful communities in the state. There are several charity groups to join. If you'd rather just volunteer your time, there are dozens of fundraisers to help. The Lake of the Ozark's best waterfront condominiums are proud to call such a great community home.

Protect Your Boat with these 3 tips!

Owning a luxury condo at the Lake of the Ozarks means that you can enjoy all the boating opportunities the area offers.  If you own a boat, you also need to take some steps to protect your investment.  At Isla Del Sol, we have designed our Island complex to protect your boat, and at our beautiful 360-degree condominium complex, we offer slips for sale that can help prevent your boat from damage from wakes and the elements.  Here are 3 tips for protecting your boat and making your stay at the lake enjoyable throughout the year.

Choose the best slip for your boat.

Choosing a slip for your boat is some of the best protection from the water you can get. The first step is choosing a slip that can hold up your boat. You need to know the boats length, width, and weight when choosing a lift. If there are any doubts, it's probably better to over-specify than to under quote. We can accommodate nearly any size/style of boats. Our slip sizes are: 12x32, 12x36, 14x36, 14x40, and 16x40.    

Securing your boat properly is important

If you are out enjoying the beautiful Lake of the Ozarks and decide to stop at one of our local water bars or need to fuel up, there are some tips to help prevent boat damage from the dock. Use two ropes on the bow of the boat, one on each side to stabilize the vessel and prevent it from swaying too far one way or the other. On the stern, use two crossed ropes, going from one side of the vessel to the other side of the slip. When tying the knot onto the slip, use a knot that can be untied quickly but won't come undone on its own, such as a proper cleat hitch knot. Remember to leave enough slack if waves strike, so that the boat can move independently of the dock, without being drug around by the rope. 

Use bumpers to prevent your boat from hitting the dock.

If your boat is put away for the day or you find yourself at a busy dock for a night of dinner and entertainment, throw some bumpers on the sides of the boat. This just-in-case feature pays for itself in-case of accidents. You can't watch your boat all the time, and should the dock crew incorrectly tie your boat into the slip, it might bump or grind into the slip. Bumpers can help mitigate this damage, possibly saving you in repairs along with preventing accidental damage to the dock!  

Isla Del Sol wants to protect your investment.

Our private island condominium paradise wants to make sure that your watercraft is able to stay protected. Utilize our slips to prevent your boat from being damaged. The next time you stay at the Lake's best waterfront condos, come down and look at our docks. We offer 5 different options which can contain sizes from PWCs to 40 ft. watercraft. Come to Isla Del Sol at the Lake of the Ozarks for a great view and a perfect vacation home; stay for the amazing community and private island community!
