The unofficial start of summer is here and the Lake of the Ozarks has seen tourist traffic pick up. 

Memorial Day weekend brought large numbers of families and travelers from all over the state.

As of Sunday, there were no reported water injuries from the Missouri Highway Patrol.

They also said they expect to see the sam amount of tourists this year, despite the shaky economy.
