OSAGE BEACH, Mo. (KMIZ)
The City of Osage Beach announced plans today for a new resort in the area.
The submission plans were received today by the developers, SkyView Partners and Tegethoff Development, of St. Louis
Oasis at Lakeport will be the new $300 million family resort and entertainment district to be developed along the Lakeport property acquired by Big Thunder Marine in 2021 -- at Highway 54 and Jeffries Road, adjacent to the Grand Glaize Bridge.
Construction is expected to break ground in 2023 and will open in summer 2024.
“Oasis at Lakeport will generate over 500 jobs and bring 500,000 visitors to Missouri, further enhancing tourism, one of Missouri’s leading industries,” Lt. Gov. Mike Kehoe said in a press release. “I welcome this project for its future impact on mid-Missouri’s economy as well as its commitment to bringing a centrally located, state-of-the-art entertainment district to the Osage Beach community.”
Plans for the area include amusement rides and attractions, hotels, restaurants, an amphitheater, marina and boardwalk. Amusement offerings will include roller coasters, thrill and family rides and a 200-foot-tall observation wheel.
