Camden County is located at the Lake of the Ozarks, encompassing the vast majority of Osage Beach and portions of Lake Ozark. Camdenton, Missouri is the county seat and is at the eye of the proverbial storm.
Recently, a federal lawsuit was filed against a wide range of the government entities and their agents. This list included, among other Defendants, the Camdenton school district, the Missouri Department of Family Services, the Camden County Sheriff Department and Judges of the 26th Circuit of Missouri.

beg the question: Is Camden County, Missouri the dirtiest county in America?
