Camden County to Decide on Lodging Tax

OSAGE BEACH, Mo. -- For the second time in ten months, voters in Camden County will decide Tuesday whether to tax hotel guests more to help promote the Lake of the Ozarks.

A ballot measure asks voters to raise the lodging tax from 3 to 5 percent. It's a tax that will impact tourists but be decided by residents.

Camden County's lodging tax is well below Missouri's other top tourism spots. Kansas City is at 7.5%, St. Louis is at 7.2%, Springfield is at 5.2% and Branson is at 5%.
