The Great Bagnell Dam Duck Drop - Family Fun for a Great Cause

We are lucky enough to live in an area that not only hosts the most fun and exciting events at the Lake of the Ozarks, but many of them are also thrown to benefit very worthy causes. The Great Bagnell Dam Duck Drop is one of those events, and it takes place right up the road from JB Hook's

There is something fun for the entire family to enjoy at the Great Bagnell Dam Duck Drop. There is a golf tournament on Friday, and Saturday includes a family fun zone and the unbelievable sight of thousands of rubber duckies being dropped into the Osage River below Bagnell Dam. All of the funds raised remain in the area and are distributed among a long list of local non-profit organizations through the Ozark Coast Kiwanis Organization. 

Get Your Duck Drop Tickets!

For just $5 you can "adopt" a duck that will race down the Osage River and hopefully be the first to cross the finish line. A helicopter will fly overhead and drop the ducks at noon. First place will receive the grand prize, and the next 10 ducks will also be big winners.

  • Grand Prize: $5,000!
  • Additional Prizes:
    • $1,000 Cash
    • $500 Hy-Vee Grocery Card
    • Five - $100 Woods Supermarket Cards

  • Bank Star One - Lake Ozark & Osage Beach

The "Quacky" Golf Tournament

A 4-person golf tournament with a ladies flight will be happening at the Ridge Golf Course at the Lodge of Four Seasons in Lake Ozark on Friday, August 5, 2016. It's not your average golf tournament, featuring crazy holes and fun obstacles all around the course. There will be hole-in-one contests for both cash and a new boat, a putting contest for a chance to win $5,000, and more!

You can sign up for the Duck Drop golf tournament online as a team or individually. The cost is $125 per player and includes lunch, the tournament, and 10 Duck Drop tickets. All proceeds will benefit the Lake Area Big Brothers Big Sisters and Ozark Kiwanis, which both help local children in the lake area. Lunch and registration are at noon, and the shotgun start kicks off at 1:30 pm.


The Family Fun Zone & Duck Drop

Saturday, August 6 is Duck Drop Day! It will open with a family fun zone from 10:00 am - 1:00 pm. This will include many entertaining activities and games that are free to enjoy. It all takes place at the Dam Bait & Campground below Bagnell Dam. Some of the fun that you can look forward to is:

  • Games & Prizes
  • Bounce Houses
  • Dance Performances
  • Martial Arts Performances
  • Petting Zoo
  • Face Decorating
  • Dunk Tanks
  • Shaved Ice

The Great Bagnell Dam Duck Drop will be an incredible time for the entire family, and you could go home with a great big cash prize! Even better, many local, well-deserving non-profit organizations will benefit. If you would like additional information, please visit After the Duck Drop, head on up the road to JB Hook's for lunch. A wonderful way to end a fun afternoon.
