Camp Pin Oak

Built in the 1930s by the Civilian Conservation Corps, Camp Pin Oak has been the site for generations of gatherings by nonprofit youth groups such as Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts. Campfire sing-alongs, new friends and outdoor adventures made the camp a lasting memory for youth of all ages.

In 2010, the dining lodge burned to the ground. Today’s lodge was rebuilt with the same craftsmanship and careful attention to detail as the original. Three of the cabins near the lodge were also modernized transforming Camp Pin Oak into a unique wedding/event venue.


Located near the lodge are three cabins that can be used by guests renting the dining lodge. The cabins were built as part of the original camp in the 1930s but have been updated to provide modern conveniences while retaining their rustic charm.

The cabins include heating and air conditioning, restrooms with showers, microwaves, coffee pots, dorm-size refrigerators and linens. One cabin offers two queen-sized beds and a futon; one cabin includes a full-size bed and a futon; and one cabin features a queen-size bed and two twin-size beds, and is accessible to people with disabilities.

In addition, there are 24 of the rustic screened cabins that can also be rented for $25 per night when you rent the lodge. There are centralized restrooms for these cabins. The camp can accommodate up to 133 people overnight.


Pin Oak Lodge provides the perfect rustic setting for an outdoor wedding surrounded by nature. The wedding ceremony can be held at the camp’s amphitheater, located near the lodge. The wedding reception can be held in the lodge, and the nearby guest cabins can be used by the wedding party before or after the wedding.

  • The dining lodge and the three renovated cabins nearby can be rented as a package and must be reserved in advance. Additional primitive sleeping cabins in the group camp can be rented separately. (See link to fees on the right.)
  • Pin Oak Lodge is available from March through December.
  • Pin Oak Lodge is located approximately seven miles from Lake of the Ozarks State Park office in the heart of the park. Because of its setting, parking is limited.
