Welcome to Forbes! 

The Forbes Lake of the Ozarks Park is located in the heart of Southwestern Missouri, the Park has over 12,800 acres and consists of five miles of shoreline property along Lake of the Ozarks. It has three interior private lakes that are over 20 acres each including recreational amenities with boat launching sites.

The
Park includes an RV Park and picnic areas for our Land Owners and their guests. A variety of trees are located throughout the area, including oak, walnut, hickory, elm and sycamore. The topography also includes beautiful rolling hills, narrow valleys and rugged outcroppings of limestone. There are many excellent views of the three inland lakes, Missouri countryside and of course, Lake of the Ozarks itself.

Our goal is to provide you with courteous, expedient, professional service of the highest caliber. We are dedicated to preserving the pristine beauty of our community and maintaining the appropriate services for all members while ensuring our Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions are upheld.
