This campground is mainly for permanent campers with only 1 available pull-thru site; the grass was 2 feet high & when mentioned to staff we were told it had been too wet to mow-- it was plenty dry that day & the next 4 but they never did mow. Public bathroom was not cleaned the whole time, and there were...

If you order Nachos you better be hungry ! This serving is for eight people and a table for eight is easy to find. Rain or shine, the place is hopping on the weekends and hosts the lakes longest waterside all week. There's a little airconditioned bar that's quaint and cool in the "old-fashioned" way. Ask about fireworks on Saturday...

We did not stay here but just stop here with the boat for lunch and let the kids play at the waterslides. Food is usually very good and staff is great. Great dock with helpers. Fun to boat watch. Great place to stop in and spend a few hours.

Look I know what the price is I was not expecting the Taj Mahal but there is really no excuse for this.We are talking about cleanliness and safety issues. I have no idea how they pass their inspections. I will let the pictures do most of the talking but a couple things I will mention. This cabin was not safe...

our room was fine, our daughter in laws had ants pretty bad. Bar was fun and food was so so not too good. Could be a great place if they clean up the upper rooms and improve on service and food. Will go to party but might stay somewhere else or buy a trailer.

This is an old style LOTO resort. The have an RV park, some motel rooms, a water slide and pool and a restaurant. They also have music on Sat evenings in season. Overall the food is average. The nacho platter is huge and actually pretty tasty. The fireworks at 9:45 pm in season make it a fun time.

This is a complete resort. 3 bars, a restaurant, cabins and a camp ground. It also has the longest waterslide in the Ozarks! Live band every weekend, Friday and Saturday, Sunday on holiday weekends. Fireworks 🎆 every Saturday at 9:45! Great food and adult beverages.

Great food and people! Fun atmosphere and perfect setting overlooking a beautiful part of the lake! And the waterslides are fantastic! Family loves it and one of our lake favorites! Very fair prices too!

If you enjoy slow service and bad food, this is your kind of place. Worst BLT I've ever had accompanied by soggy onion rings. Nice lake view from the deck, though. The dock boy was very helpful. Not a lot else to report, but I have to keep typing in order to reach the minimum of two hundred characters.

I will start by saying that we only ate here so I have no knowledge of the "resort" end. It was a super hot day so we sat in the air conditioned bar and had an early dinner/late lunch. We got a 1/4 order of nachos which were HUGE and delicious. Apparently they are known for their chili that goes...
