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.

From the Beautification Committee
We are in the
planning stages of creating a community garden and the Beautification
Committee is looking for some “Green Thumbs” that would be interested in participating in a community garden. We
are planning for this to be a fenced in area located in the common area
of Forbes Lake (#1) below the dam. At the moment there
are 4 residents wanting to participate - we would like a commitment from at least 6 more parties before we are willing to proceed. Please respond if you are
interested in participating. If there is enough interest in sweet
corn, we would plant a single plot for sweet corn and share the responsibilities and the rewards.
Here to respond
Thanks, Beautification Committee.
