Lover's Leap could be barricaded by owners

LAKE OF THE OZARKS — The owners of one of the most popular landmarks at Lake of the Ozarks say they may soon block public access.

Lover's Leap is a 200-foot-tall bluff overlooking the lake. Visitors have for years hiked from the road to the Camden County location for the stunning view.

But Pat Cromby says those visitors often leave behind trash and junk.

Her family has owned Lover's Leap for many years. She says that unless the trash problems stop, she will barricade the property and post no trespassing signs

This sounds like a great project for the Boys Scouts or a local organization to have a monthly or bi-monthly cleanup.
