This was our second time to stay at Bear Bottom. The first time we stayed in a small room and this year we choose a larger cabin. It is a family run business and everyone is very friendly. It is nice because there are two water slides right on the property that the kids loved. Unfortunately we did not have...

It was ok. Pool is old and kinda falling apart. Slides are fun for kids but not the safest. Bugs and bandaids in the pool. If this place is close to you and you want to drive up the boat and sit at the swimup bar...maybe but I won't make a special trip to be here. Drinks were lackluster at...

Really fun place on the water...excellent atmosphere, food and service! The nachos are a must...best I have ever had. Room for a couple or large group no problem. They have a water slide that can keep kids entertained for hours. Come by boat or land. Saturday nights they have fireworks display. Very friendly staff!

Good food and drinks! Great service! Servers go beyond the call of just serving food and drinks! Someone in our party dropped a phone and it bounced off the deck and into the water! Our server handed over his phone, wallet, keys and jumped in to get the phone out of the water! They also have pools and waterslides!

This place is Old, Run Down, and a basic overall dive! Went to see the Last Call Band, the idiot DJ took over the mic and was screaming trying to be so cool, it was nuts! It stinks in there like stale smoke and beer. Its a hole!! Go somewhere else!!

We boated to the resort for an afternoon of fun with a group of 20, in two boats. parking is hard to come by. The dock girls were inexperienced in parking boats and giving clear, load directions. The bar and restaurant staff were good but overworked. The kids really enjoy the $10 waterslide. Can't beat that value for a child....

We stayed at the Bear Bottom Resort recently. We love the restaurant, it had wonderful food and the staff were great. Everyone at the resort was very friendly and made you feel very welcomed. The resort has a wonderful view and a great location. On the down side the housekeeping is something to be desired. In Cabin 6 there was...

Below that pool is another pool with a bar.....1. the concrete is ROUGH, you will ruin your bathing suit, if you sit at the bar sit on a towel. 2.
