8 Things to Bring on Your Lake Vacation

When renting a vacation home or condo at the Lake of the Ozarks, what should you bring with you and what is supplied with the rental? Every vacation rental at the Lake of the Ozarks is different, so be sure to ask the right questions and check the amenities list if one is provided. At Your Lake Vacation, we try to supply most basic items so that guests don't have to worry about bringing things like paper towels, soaps, tissues, toilet paper, dishwasher tablets, etc.

Vacation Rental Yikes! 

Owner Russell Burdette, went on vacation with his family in Dauphin Island, Alabama about 12 years ago or so. The home that his dad rented on the beach didn't come with much at all. In fact, they had to supply their own bedding, pillow, sheets, blankets, the whole nine yards. Trying to cram 5 kids and 2 adults, all their clothes and bedding into a mini-van with a topper was quite the sight. They never want to do that again! And we don't want our guests to do that either!

What to Bring with You 

Some of the questions that we get when guests call include: does this property come with air conditioning, and does this property have sheets and pillows? We can tell that they've had some rough experiences in the past.

1. Shampoo - Many places provide soaps, but most people prefer their own shampoo.

2. Coffee - While some places may provide a small packet of coffee, most people prefer their own brand.

3. Games - You never know when it might rain on your vacation, and while some properties may have some games, it's a great idea to bring some with you to pass the time on a rainy day.

4. Music - While you used to have to lug around cassettes or cd's, now taking your favorite tunes with you is so much easier. Just load your music onto your favorite device and take it with you when you travel.

5. Beach Towels - Most vacation rentals at the Lake of the Ozarks will supply bath and hand towels for inside the property. However, if you are heading to the beach or the pool, you'll want to bring your own large beach towels.

6. First Aid Kit - While you hope you will never need it, it's always a good idea to keep a first aid kit handy when you travel in case of any accidents.

7. Small Tool Kit - Our owner always keeps a little tool kit on him. It's surprising just how many things you can fix with a good old four way screw driver and a pair of pliers.

8. Paper & a Pen - While your smart phone can perform a lot of tasks, there are still uses for good ole paper and pen. Notes to others, keeping score and tic-tac-toe are just a few!

So pack up your car with these items and your other essentials (clothes, toiletries, etc.) and head out on vacation to the Lake of the Ozarks!
