Stopped in here for an extended lunch break with the kids on our last visit to the lake. We arrived early on a weekday and were promptly greeted at the dock and had someone help tie us up. then the kids hit the waterslides until lunch. For $10 each I think it's a pretty good deal. After a couple hours... More

Bear Bottom Resort is the best time, whether you are staying in the hotel, camping, passing through from some dinner, out boating for the day, or the kiddos want to slide down two of the giant water slides. We have done all of the above, and have a wonderful time each time. The owner, always greats us with a smile,... More

Took one look and decided not to stay. Were not wanting anything fancy but clean. The living room area had only a futon that was broke down and filthy. I always pull back comforters and check sheets and there was hair all over them. The tub was dirty and the towels hanging up were ragged. Was afraid our vacation was... More

We stopped by on a Wednesday evening around 5pm for a quick bite before heading to Laurie fairgrounds for the Lake of the Ozarks shootout Party in the Park. We had read in local magazines that Bear Bottom was on the way and offered lakeside dining. The area was difficult to find, offering very little signage from the main highway.... More

There were about six families in our party that arrived by boat on a Thursday afternoon for appetizers and drinks. The kids immediately hit the water slide. For $10 each, it seemed like the kids really enjoyed the slide. All the adults gathered at the swim up bar where there were probably 50 other adults and only one bar tender.... More

I wanted to share with you that most of our server staff is not 21, therefore can not bar-tend, that would be the reason they are not moved into... More

This is one of the best "boat to" restaurants.at the Lake of the Ozarks. Not easy to find anymore as the sign on Highway 5 is no longer there. This is a destination for a good time, food and drinks. They have have the typical Lake Bar menu. What Bare Bottom has that is different is a really nice staff... More
