The Art of Lake House Camping at Lake Thunderhead, Missouri
Camping can be great family fun. From fishing to hiking to roasting marshmallows, outdoor recreation and family bonding time are the order of the day. But there are a few things that a traditional camping experience lacks, like air conditioning, indoor plumbing, and beds. For all the camping enthusiasts out there who want to have nature-focused fun but don’t want to give up modern luxuries, a Lake Thunderhead lake house is the perfect compromise.
Head to Unionville, Missouri to find your next great outdoor adventure (while actually living indoors). At Lake Thunderhead, your day is sure to be packed with traditional camping activities like canoeing or speed boating on the 1050-acre lake, swimming from one of the two beaches, hiking or biking along the trails, bird watching for bald eagles and wild turkey, fishing for walleye from the shore or dock of the professionally-stocked lake, or any number of other things along the 34 miles of shoreline surrounding Lake Thunderhead. If you are in the market for extra fishing gear, or need advice on getting the fish to bite, you can visit Woody's Pro Lures. They make lures for bass, northern, and muskie in the shop.
Golfing and tennis are also available near Lake Thunderhead lake house rentals. The Lake Thunderhead at Wildflower golf course hosts 9 holes and plays 1701 yards from the longest tees. A pair of tennis courts and a playground for kids are available in the area, as well.
Living in Comfort
When you are done with your day of outdoor exploration, you can return home to your lake house for a quiet dinner on a deck overlooking the lake, and even make s’mores around a fire pit. Or eat dinner out at the Marina Bay Restaurant for home-style fare served fresh. In your lake house, you can gather in the family room to watch a movie or sit on the deck and look at the stars. And when you rent a Lake Thunderhead lake house, you can sleep in a comfortable bed without mosquitoes and flies buzzing around. In the morning, you can take a hot shower and cook breakfast in the kitchen, and pack a cooler with lunch for another action-packed day of adventure. The beauty of having a Lake Thunderhead lake house is that, even when you are indoors, the view of the lake allows you to soak up the peaceful atmosphere and inspires you to go out and play in nature. Renting a lake house is truly the best of both worlds.
If you want to get close—but not too close—to nature, rent a Lake Thunderhead lake house to get the camping experience without sleeping outdoors. When you rent a lake house, you can still be close to the great outdoors, but you elevate your camping experience to a true vacation that the whole family will love.
